Colors by Llarowe Bea Stings! and Look At Me I'm Sandra Dee

Today we still continue with the Llarowe Spring collection, I don't have too many of these left to show you all which means I was even more excited to see on the Llarowe Facebook page that the Summer Collection is on its way in May.

I have consistently been impressed with any and all of the Colors by Llarowe polishes I have tried, and still have so many on my wishlist to try and get, but am dying to see the Summer Collection all the same!!

Today though, we have Bea Stings! which is another polish named after a Llarowe girl, this one being the lovely Bea of HoneyJr, which when she isn't putting out amazing swatches, she also happens to do an amazing job of managing the Llarowe FB and Instagram pages.

Bea Stings! is a cherry pinky red holo polish and even me who isn't in love with pinks normally, loved wearing this one.

This is 1 coat of the Knight, 2 of the polish and 1 of the Shield.

Then I decided to use a little Look At Me I'm Sandra Dee to add to the prettiness of Bea Stings!

Sandra Dee is a crazy mix of pink and holo glitters and can be worn alone easily.  This is 1 coat in a diagonal over Bea with a coat of the Shield to finish up.

How are you all fairing with the Spring polishes in the restock?  Have you managed to get all the ones you have been lusting after?

If not, remember to keep an eye on the Llarowe site and Facebook for restock information and CbL polishes can also be purchased from Harlow & Co who I also understand is getting some CbL exclusives in the near future.

Thanks for looking <3

Mentality Kindness and a-england Excalibur

I have for you today a little break from the Llarowe Spring polishes with a mani I am wearing just now that I was really happy with.

Firstly we have the first of a few polishes I have to show you from Mentality which is called Kindness and is described on the site as 'Kindness is a stamping grade black jelly multichrome holographic nail polish with a color shift from turquoise to blue to purple.'

When wearing this polish I felt t was mostly a tealish kind of dark green with a shift to blue at certain angles.

Here is 1 coat of the Knight, 2 of the polish and 1 of the Shield.  Coverage was great so 1 coat would have probably sufficed.



After a day or so of wear I decided to try my hand again using my nail art brushes, this time I used a-england Excalibur and just drew random lines but I was really happy with the result.



I got my Mentality polish from Sally Magpies, which is a UK indie store, as they were doing an offer at the time.  But you can also get them from the official Etsy store or from Harlow and Co too.

a-englands can be purchased from the official site if you are in the UK, Llarowe ships worldwide but if you have a look on the a-england site you can see a list of all the stockists.  The 'old' Excalibur has recently been brought back and is now named Excalibur Renaissance and I am now even more happy about this as I loved how easy this worked with my brushes!

Thanks for looking and I hope you like this one <3

Colors by Llarowe Deanna, It's Blue!

Deanna sounds like a girl after my own heart, apparently every blue polish that comes into Llarowe HQ, Deanna has to know about it.

So Deanna, It's Blue! was named for this and does not disappoint in the blue department.

This is 1 coat of the Knight, 2 of the polish and 1 of the Shield.

Blue and holo is a win win in my book, so happy with this one.

Colors by Llarowe In Another Dimension and Tazmo Kramer

I have for you all today another 2 great polishes from the Colors by Llarowe Spring Collection.

In Another Dimension is described as a aqua blue but looks much greener in natural light due to the great green shimmer running through this polish.

Tazmo Kramer is a silver holo polish aqua glitters and microglitters through it.  I love these polishes that mix holo and glitter...

I couldn't decide which to wear first so just decided on both, each is 1 coat of the Knight, 2 of the polish and 1 of the Shield.

I have recently decided to try and start using the nail brushes and tools I bought many years ago but never quite got the hang of, so this is my attempt at dotting.  So I dotted In Another Dimension over Tazmo Kramer and vice versa.

Its by far perfect but I was really happy with how this turned out.
