Hi loves,
Wow, first off anyone else having trouble with blogger? I've sat and waited over half an hour for the pics to upload ugh!
 
Anyway, today I am sharing 5 more gorgeous polishes from the Summer 2014 Collection by Colors by Llarowe, mermaid style... or fish... well scales ok, just scales haha. It looks fabulous though and I don't want to remove this mani :(
 
I decided to grab some shots before I started the galaxy but first enjoy this collage....

Index finger - Sweet Revenge
Middle - Holiday Road
Ring - Refresh...ing!
Pinkie - Chillin' in Paradise.
 

Sweet Revenge | A gorgeous rich deep teal holo, which may I just say - one coat... one damn coat!
 

Holiday Road | A gorgeous lime green jelly with gorgeous red to gold shimmer. shown here is 2 coats but some may need 3.
 

Refresh...ing! | Aqua green holo, oh my goodness! Shown just 1 coat ;)
 

Chillin' in Paradise | Light tiffany blue/aqua with some seriously intense holo!! I used 2 coats but this could be a one coater.
 

Olivia | This one is truly amazing! Light golden olive holo needing just 2 coats.


I took a lot of shots of this mani, I couldn't help it ;) I went with galaxy nails using all of the above colours and added in the stars and scales using paints. I just love love love the outcome, I sat on the fence whether to cover all nails in the scales but I rather like the pieces with the accented full nail.
 




If that wasn't bad enough I then went and had fun with the macro hehe, but enjoy - these polishes make an amazing galaxy IMO.





I hope you all like what I did with these :)

Colors by Llarowe Summer 2014 - Jellies/Crellies and Glitter Toppers | Swatches and Review

Hi loves,
I hope you're all doing good? I finally managed to get my mitts on the awesome CBLs I had waiting for me at the post office, thanks to Parcel Force - I won't even go there! LOL.
 
I've decided to split the posts up as I am waiting on CBL package 2 to arrive any time now, from todays parcel I received 3 of the jellies/crellies and the 2 glitter toppers. I decided this was the perfect place to start and help wean me back into swatching multiple per sitting ;)
 
The Summer collection has already had pre-orders but they will be back up for sale soon I believe, please keep an eye on the CBL and Llarowe FB pages for this.. links at the end of the post.
 
 



Read My Lips, More New Colors | The stunning neon orangey peach, this didn't look fab on me - I don't pull off orangey colours well but my oh my, this colour is stunning!! I used just 2 coats.

Summer... Finally! | A sexy neon pink which is just so squishy and neon and squishy .. and PINK. Ugh I can't handle this it's just, hellooo mumma!
Shown 3 coats.

Blue Jeans & Beauty Queens | The lovely denim blue, which hated my camera sorry! Shown 3 coats.
 

--
 



I'm Seeing Spots | This fun mix of tiny black and white hexes, I love this! I decided to show one coat over Read My Lips, More New Colors.
 





--
 



Opals & Lace | I just am in love with this topper, full of iridescent and white glitters. Shown 2 coats over Blue Jeans & Beauty Queens.
 





There we have the 5 stunners for today, any favourites?
 
Overall?
I really enjoy all of them, I like how well the toppers work with the others and the colour range too. The formula on them was great, some a little thicker but nothing that isn't workable. I really love the squishiness in the jellies/crellies most, I'm not one for the VNL which works perfect as these are easily buildable.

Shimmer Polish Cristina | Swatch and Review

Hi loves,
First of all I want to start off with saying a very big thank you, all the responses I received from my post the other day really does mean the world to me. I could never put in to words how much I appreciate it.
 
I finally managed to do a quick swatch after having my nails plain for days now, I chose to wear one of the gorgeous polishes I received from Shimmer Polish. This one is just stunning and completely reminds me of a mermaid :)
 





Cristina | A stunning topper with glitters in various sizes, as described - deep forest green with a hit of red and fuchsia. Just pure beauty in this one, it would match amazing with both light or dark polishes.
I decided to wear one coat over Barry M Greenberry.
 





Posting will remain a little slow, I am sorry. I have a fair few Shimmer Polishes ready to be swatched this week so look out for more ;)

Pretty Serious Splash of Flash Collection | Swatches and Review

Hi loves,
I hope you are all well and enjoying the start of the bank holiday weekend! There has been so many bank holidays recently or is it just me? lol.
 
Today I am sharing 3 of 5 stunning toppers from Pretty Serious Splash of Flash Collection, ohhh my! These are super stunning. I decided to jump with these, I usually swatch glitter toppers over black - no idea why really it's just been something I do. Today though I just itched to go different, ok ok minus one but I couldn't help that - Paranoid Princess had to be shown over black ;) haha.
 



Paranoid Princess | The name is just fabulous on this one lol! I instantly fell in love with this beauty, a mix of fuchsia hexes with the added touch of purple thrown in.
Shown one coat over Jacava Jet Black.

Venomous | I went all out with the base colour for this didn't I? I mean I would never pick yellow but I just kinda liked the match? lol!
A stunning mix of blue and green hexes.
Shown one coat over Topshop Beach Shack.

Dream Weaver | This was love for me, just a gorgeous topper! A mix gold hexes with a touch of holo hexes thrown in. I decided on red at the last minute, I was originally going to go with pink but red it had to be!
Shown one coat over Nails Inc St James.

Overall?
What a fab collection! I really enjoyed these, I don't really own or go for toppers very often but these are perfect. Formula all of these were great, glitter went on like butter - no fishing or dabbing needed here! :)
