Literary Lacquers Vurt-U-Want Collection Swatches & Review

by Lisa Heath

Press Sample

Tonight I have the Literary Lacquers Vurt-U-Want collection to share with you! This 8 piece collection consists of 3 glittery holographics, 2 classic holographics, a matte glitter, a matte shimmer and a glitter top coat.

This beautiful Summer collection is inspired by Vurt by Jeff Noon, the 1990s classic cyber-hallucinogenic novel.

Literary Lacquers Vurt-U-Want

Vurt U Want

Vurt-U-Want is a neon pink linear holo with holo microglitter. I used 2 coats for these photos and a glossy top coat.

Blue Lullaby is one of my favorites of this collection! This is a deep bright blue linear holo with holo microglitter.  I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Literary Lacquers Bottletown


Bottletown is a green linear holo with rainbow flakies and glass flecks. I used 2 coats for these photos and a glossy top coat.

Bottletown had a quicker dry time for me for some reason.  I did have to work quicker for this.  It didn’t cause any application issues, just noting that it did have a fast dry time.

Literary Lacquers Dreamsnake


Dreamsnake is a slightly dusty violet linear holo with green flakies and glass flecks.  I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Literary Lacquers Shadowgirl


Shadowgirl is a soft blue toned grey matte packed with holographic and metallic glitter in silver and blue. I used 3 thin coats for these photos, no top coat.  This was incredibly sheer, so this would also work nicely over a grey or light blue base.

Because of the sheerness and needing 3 coats, the glitters did give an uneven appearance.  As you will see below, 1 coat of top coat did even it all out.

Shadowgirl takes on a whole new holo look with top coat, so I needed to show that too!

Literary Lacquers Curious Yellow

Curious Yellow

Curious Yellow is a taxi yellow matte with gold glass fleck and flakies. I was actually surprised at how much I loved this one, the intensely shimmered matte just gives a beautiful look.  I used 2 coats, no top coat for these photos.

Like Shadowgirl, I had to show Curious Yellow with top coat!  I still like it, but I absolutely love it without.

Literary Lacquers English Voodoo

English Voodoo

English Voodoo is inspired by the knowledge feather known as English Voodoo, magenta holo microglitter, 2 sizes of black hexes, black holo triangles and a smattering of marigold matte small hexes to represent the deadly side of this feather trip. I used 1 coat over a white creme for these photos.

Literary Lacquers Vurt-U-Want Collection Overview

PicMonkey Collage

Overall, I found this to be a nice collection.  Several stunning shades and my top picks are Vurt-U-Want, Blue Lullaby and Curious Yellow.  There weren’t any application issues to really mention other than what I already said in descriptions.  Bottletown had a faster dry time than the rest and Shadowgirl was incredibly sheer on its own which did cause an uneven finish without top coat. No deal breakers by any means.

Price: $12.00 Each | $87.00 Full Collection
