Literary Lacquers - Roissey

I decided not to make you wait for the last polish from Literary Lacquer's The Good Parts Collection. So here is Roissey!

First, here's what the maker has to say about it:

Roissey Full Size Nail Lacquer : The Good Parts Collection - Erotic fiction from Fanny Hill to 50 Shades

Black and blue polish inspired by The Story of O published under the pseudonym Pauline Reage in 1954. This polish is named for the chateau where O, our heroine, is taken to be transformed into a sex slave. In an article in 1994 in The New Yorker, Anne Desclos came out to the world as the actual author of this intense and sometimes brutal smutty book.

Roissey is a royal blue polish with a very sparkly finish and black shredded glitter. This polish has a fairly thin consistency and works best at three thin coats for full coverage.

She was right - three thin coats of this one! No issues with formula or application. One generous coat of Poshe top coat for the photos.

  1. I really like this polish. I've never seen a polish with shredded glitters and I love how the black pops against the blue.

  2. I love the combo of blue glitters and black shreds in this one!
