Laters, Baby

Today's manicure is an awesome one! Literary Lacquers - Laters, Baby


This polish was inspired by the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy, and being a huge fan of the books, I was very excited to find and purchase it. The name comes from an affectionate parting line used by Christian Grey's character throughout the books.


Laters, Baby is a charcoal gray polish with an intense, complicated, mysterious, and beautiful holographic effect...it captures the spirit of Christian Grey, and the books, wonderfully.



I have used one layer of base coat, three coats of polish, and one layer of top coat. I could have stopped at two coats of this lovely polish, but I bumped a nail and needed an extra coat to patch it up..so I added an extra coat to all nails to make them even. 


I had a teeny bit of tip-shrink (more visible in the top picture), I'm assuming from the Seche Vite top coat as it has a tendency to have that effect on some polishes, but nothing major. I might try a different top coat the next time I wear this polish to see if it makes a difference. I did not find that the Seche Vite dulled out the holographic effect, as it also has a tendency to do. 

All of the above pictures are in direct sunlight, while the picture below is indoors with flash. This polish is absolutely stunning in the light, but also has a lovely shimmering, sparkling effect indoors and at night.


You can find this polish and many other literature inspired polishes in the Literary Lacquers store on Etsy.com

Products Used:
One coat Beauty Secrets Moisturizing Base Coat
