Raspberry Cordial? Holographic Full Size Nail Lacquer : Green Gables Collection
This collection was inspired by Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery, published in 1908 and delighting children and adults alike since then. The book is a masterpiece of descriptive writing and full of imagination and wonder at the world and a love letter to the beauty of Canada!
Anne has a bit of a talent for getting herself into trouble. Her bosom friend, Diana, was invited to tea. Anne served her three glasses of Marilla's homemade raspberry cordial but Diana started to feel very funny. Upon arriving home Diana's mother was appalled that Anne had gotten her dear daughter drunk!!! Poor Anne had served currant wine by mistake and wasn't allowed near her friend for months! You have to love her over the top dramatics in this passage...
"Marilla stared in blank amazement.
"Set Diana drunk!" she said when she found her voice. "Anne are you or Mrs. Barry crazy? What on earth did you give her?"
"Not a thing but raspberry cordial," sobbed Anne. "I never thought raspberry cordial would set people drunk, Marilla—not even if they drank three big tumblerfuls as Diana did. Oh, it sounds so—so—like Mrs. Thomas's husband! But I didn't mean to set her drunk."
"Drunk fiddlesticks!" said Marilla, marching to the sitting room pantry. There on the shelf was a bottle which she at once recognized as one containing some of her three-year-old homemade currant wine for which she was celebrated in Avonlea, although certain of the stricter sort, Mrs. Barry among them, disapproved strongly of it. And at the same time Marilla recollected that she had put the bottle of raspberry cordial down in the cellar instead of in the pantry as she had told Anne.
She went back to the kitchen with the wine bottle in her hand. Her face was twitching in spite of herself.
"Anne, you certainly have a genius for getting into trouble. You went and gave Diana currant wine instead of raspberry cordial. Didn't you know the difference yourself?"
"I never tasted it," said Anne. "I thought it was the cordial. I meant to be so—so—hospitable. Diana got awfully sick and had to go home. Mrs. Barry told Mrs. Lynde she was simply dead drunk. She just laughed silly-like when her mother asked her what was the matter and went to sleep and slept for hours. Her mother smelled her breath and knew she was drunk. She had a fearful headache all day yesterday. Mrs. Barry is so indignant. She will never believe but what I did it on purpose."
"I must cry," said Anne. "My heart is broken. The stars in their courses fight against me, Marilla. Diana and I are parted forever. Oh, Marilla, I little dreamed of this when first we swore our vows of friendship."

Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montomery
Raspberry Cordial? is a raspberry pink linear holographic polish with added holo glitter. 2 coats will give full coverage. In my experience, topcoat does not dull the holographic effect.

Returns & exchanges
In the case of a breakage in shipping, please contact me with a photo of the damage and I will replace (or refund, if the polish is not available for some reason) the polish and shipping costs.
If you have a problem with the formulation, please let me know. Polish is an interesting medium to work with. Sometimes ingredients do weird things and while I do thoroughly test my ingredients, it's impossible for me to replicate every polish storage situation. I recommend storing nail polish in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.
My customs waiting list is very long right now and I'm not taking any additional custom orders right now. I welcome any and all general conversation about nail polish and polish creation.
I will happily discuss wholesale accounts with anyone interested!
