Literary Lacquers: Lake of Shining Waters

Hello, my lovelies!

I hope you're all having a fabulous weekend! I'm in a great mood, I just bought a new (to me) car yesterday, after 14 years. My old one is being semi-retired while we consider doing some of the mechanical work ourselves. Sinking thousands of dollars into a 14 year old car just isn't feasible.

So what have we got on tap today? Another beauty from Literary Lacquers Anne of Green Gables collection! Meet Lake of Shining Waters. A huge part of the magic that was Anne Shirley was her imagination! She was always seeing beyond what her eyes told her. Anne renamed the Barry's pond "The Lake of Shining Waters" on her ride home with Matthew. "Barry's Pond" was just too mundane and sensible for Anne!

And so the polish named for it is a gorgeous emerald green with a soft linear holo effect. This stunning little gem went on super smoothly, and is shown here at 3 coats, topped with Out The Door. I've been trying to mix up my red, orange, pink routine and this is a perfect, relaxing color to do so. Someday I hope to get to Prince Edward Island, but in the meantime, I'll just admire these polishes!

Literary Lacquers can be found on Facebook, and in her Etsy store, where full sized polishes avaergae $10. Be sure to check out the rest of this collection and her other polishes!


  1. *jaw drops* I love it!! Lake of Shining Waters definitely does Anne proud.

  2. Ooh now that's gorgeous, I think Anne would approve.
