Colors by Llarowe Summer 2014 Glitters - Independence Day, Purple Is My Crack, Mystery & Mayhem and Beautiful Disaster

Firstly I will start off by apologising for my little absence, I had borrowed a fancy camera from my step dad and I don't think he anticipated how many pictures I was going to take and the battery pack died, and I had no charger.  And then I eventually got the charger and was busy with a couple of birthdays I have in June, one being my own, haha.

But anyway, to start back I thought I would continue with showing you some more of the Summer 2014 CbL polishes.  I am loving this collection and am actually being a tad adventurous - well for me - with how I am wearing these.  It means that you may not get to see a colour as a straight swatch but you will get to see my attempts at art....

Now attempts is a great word here as this mani seemed like a great idea in my head and it was okay when I finished it but I just was not 100% happy with it.  So firstly I will show you the colours alone, then I will show you the other mani.

Now I have just swatched these one on each finger.  In order these are Independence Day (royal blue jelly base with holo glitters) Purple Is My Crack (purple jelly base with holo glitters) Mystery & Mayhem (teal jelly base with holo glitters) and last but not least Beautiful Disaster which is a little different from the others I am showing you today as it is a clear base with various holo and micro glitters, but still pretty dense and can be worn alone as you see.  All are 1 coat of the Knight, 2 of the polish and 1 of the Shield.

Now you can see just how pretty these colours are alone, now I will show you what I tried to do with them.

I had an idea in my head about doing a kind of dotticure with these over a white base.  I started with 1 coat of the Knight and then 2 of Nails Inc Floral Street.  I then just used the normal polish brush and did dots of Independence Day, Purple Is My Crack and Mystery & Mayhem and then as Beautiful Disaster had a clear base I tried to kind of just fill in the white that was left. Then 1 coat of the Shield to top it all off.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this mani, fail or not?  And if it is a fail, do you still want to see them?

Keep an eye on the Llarowe facebook, the CbL facebook and the Llarowe site for news about the next re-stock of the Summer polishes as this is the best way to hear these being announced.  CbL polishes can also be purchased from the Harlow & Co site and again check facebook to find out when you can pick these up.

Thanks so much for looking  <3
