 Hey Everyone...

I'm not sure how many of you are still about on here or still interested in the content but that's one reason for me coming back on just now.

Would anyone still be interested in new content?  I mean its been five years haha.

I have been thinking for sometime that I maybe want to get this blog back up and running but not sure if I would still have an audience.

Honestly, I'm just mulling things over just now as many of the brands I used to work with are no longer around, so much time has passed and I also would not have unlimited funds to get up to date with all the new brands and collections.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Please comment or email to let me know your thoughts.

Colors by Llarowe - Fall 2015 - Part 3

Today we have the third and final part of my CbL Fall 2015 posts, I hope you have been loving these as much as I do.

Again, all of these polishes are 1 coat of the Knight, 2 of the polish and 1 of the Shield - apart from The Fallen where I done 3 coats of the polish.

Firstly, we have Last Harvest which is a medium grass green intense linear holo.

I then added some lighter greeny gold glitter to the tips using some top coat to stick and a dusting brush.
Next we have Rare Orchid which is a medium orchid pink scattered holo with subtle shimmer with glowing finish. I actually loved this one and was so surprised as I am not normally the pinkest polish person, but this was the first one I wore when they arrived.
I then added some purple glitter star stickers which I got from She Sells SeaShells, which is a UK vinyl/nail accessory company.
Then we have The Fallen which is a deep copper red jelly base with scattered holo, shifting flake and intense copper to red shimmer.  I think this needed an extra wee coat due to the jelly-ness of the base.

I then added some white rose stickers to these, also from She Sells SeaShells.
Lastly we have Wine and Roses which is a deep wine red intense linear holo and instead of adding something to it, I decided to try a negative space mani using some She Sells SeaShells chevron vinyls.
Thanks for looking as always, and as previously stated these will be available from the 15th - tomorrow - on the Llarowe site and are also available on Rainbow Connection.
Some products in this post were sent to me for review.

Colors by Llarowe - Fall 2015 - Part 2

Today I have the second part to my CbL Fall 2015 posts, there will only be one more after this and I will try and get it up before the launch on the 15th.

But today I am showing you another 3 from the collection.  Again, all swatches are 1 coat of the Knight, 2 of the polish and 1 of the Shield.

Firstly, here is Aubergine Dreams which is a deep aubergine intense linear holo with pink and purple flash.

Then I added some diamante type stickers from an Elegant Touch set I have.
Next we have Lake of the Pines which is a deep pine green with blue undertones soft linear holo.  The holo looks really strong in the bottle on this one but is much more subtle when on the nail.
I then added some gold skull and crossbones from the same Elegant Touch sticker set.

Lastly today we have She's My Cherry Pie which is a deep plum brown intense linear holo with intense shimmer and pink to red flash.
I then added some lilacy coloured studs from a wheel I got from ebay, I wasn't very happy with the turnout of this one at all, I definitely prefer any art that is on my nails to be flatter, they just stuck up too much for my liking.
As I said before, the Fall collection will be on Llarowe from the 15th September and you can also pick them up on Rainbow Connection now.

Thanks for looking <3

Colors by Llarowe - Fall 2015 - Part 1

Sorry for the delay in posting these swatches, I have had them ready for a week or so but haven't had the time after my 'real job' to get on and write up a post.

I am going to show you 3 of the collection today with some 'attempts' at my nails art which are shamefully bad compared to the talent of others, but nail art is just not my strong point, haha.

The first polish I am showing you is Memories of You, which is described on the Llarowe site as a taupe scattered holo with lavender undertone and red shifting shimmer with glowing finish.

I then added some dots - using a standard dotting tool, which I think I got off of ebay - in two stages, the first being Wine & Roses.

And the second being Rare Orchid.

Now I will show you the second polish which is Mocha Grande which is a deep chocolate brown intense linear holo with copper, gold and red shimmer.
 I then used a striping tool to add two layers of stripes using Last Harvest (nearest the tips) and Lake of the Pines. 

 Lastly today I will show you Rain which is a bright sea blue scattered holo with glowing finish. 

I then added some diagonal stripes using She's My Cherry Pie.

Now all of these polishes are just amazing application wise, most of them you can get away with one coat of, but I always do two just out of habit and I feel it lasts better.

All swatches are 1 of the Knight, 2 of the polish and then one of the Shield.

These will be available from Llarowe from 15 September but are available now on Rainbow Connection.

Thanks for looking and I will try and get another post (at least) up over the weekend <3
