Wow, I just love this.  Its a super linear holo, really holographic effect.  I could have even gotten away with one coat it was almost an amazing one coat wonder.  Not quite – because I chose to use two coats to ensure good even coverage.  I did a base of G&G Stuck on Blu! and then topped with a coat of G&G HK Girl.  HK Girl is great over holos, there is no dulling of the effect or colour and so its just perfect for making your holo polishes last longer.

Colors by Llarowe – Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Wow, I have a BEAUTY of a polish for you today.  This is Twinkle Twinkle Little Star from Colors By Llarowe.  Apparently a dupe for Essie SSN. Lets hit up the pics right away….

What you see above it two coats, yes only two, over a base of G&G Stuck on Blu! Topped off with my trusty G&G HK Girl.  TTLS is a stunning midnight blue jelly polish packed with glitter particles.  Its hard to capture on my camera, but its a beauty, seriously.  My pictures do not do it justice.  Formula was OK, a little gloopy for my liking, but its nothing you can’t work with (most importantly).

From what I understand this is shortly to be a retired shade, so if you like to run to the store!

Colors by Llarowe – Coal in my Stocking

Quick post today for you – another one of my naughty purchases from Llarowe.  This one is Coal in my Stocking, a lovely gray with a hint of sparkle!

Formula was a bit odd on this, slightly on the gloopy side, but with careful application it goes on surprisingly level.  Drying time is quick.  It does dry to a jelly like finish, slightly on the dull side.  Armed with my trusty G&G HK Girl that is no problem.  This is two coats of Coal in my Stocking over a base of Nailtiques 2.  Be good my peeling nails!

Colors by Llarowe – Burnt Sugar

I have another Colors by Llarowe to share with you today.  This is my second one.  I’m a little bit in love with this one… something so suitably autumnal!

Burnt Sugar is part of the Core Collection and is just the most wonderful shade of brown and sparkly holo.  I love it.  Its brown, its holo and its glittery.  Burnt sugar is a great name for it too. Formula is totally wonderful, its not too thick not too thin.  Covers that nail in pretty  much one coat.  What you see about is two coats over a coat of Glisten & Glow Stuck on Blu!  Again I also coated with Glisten & Glow HK Girl, just because I do think it helps to preserve the polish on the nail.

Colors by Llarowe are available directly from the Llarowe website, they cost between $6 and $12 depending on finish, and there is international shipping!!  They are looking into suppliers in other countries to ensure deliveries and keep postage costs down, so do keep an eye on their website and/or Facebook page.  There are occasional pre-sales, so you order in advance and they get sent to you when you order is fulfilled, or if they are in stock, you can buy them right away.  Glisten & Glow Stuck on Blu! Base Coat and HK Girl Top Coat are now available to those of us in the UK via Rainbow Connection UK.

Colors By Llarowe – Dirty Diana

I was a little bit naughty a fee weeks ago and treated myself to a couple of the gorgeous looking Color By Llarowe polishes.  These are a line developed and made by Llarowe herself, not only is she a seller of amazing polishes from around the world, she is also now a polish maker!  There are a number of holographic polishes and cremes in the range, which really does have something for everyone.

This one is Dirty Diana, part of the Michael Jackson tribute collection.  Let’s see some pictures!

Firstly, can I just say the formula on this is stunning.  It almost a one coater, but I did two over a base coat of Glisten & Glow Stuck on Blu! (UK link now ladies!).  Its like butter, smooth, self leveling and the most stunning colour.  And wow, will you look at that holo effect in the image using flash.  In person the holo effect is quite strong.  As formula does wear well, but you can use top coat, certain ones do not dull the holo effect.  I topped mine with Glisten & Glow HK Girl (UK link again!) and it didn’t dull it.  I know some people feel it does, so it really is a personal preference.

The bottle is square and the brush is firm but flexible.  Its a good size, you get 15ml and its great that all the bottles match and line up neatly.
