Colors by Llarowe is a line designed by Leah Anne Larowe of www.llarowe.com fame. Restocks of her deeply colored heavily holographic polishes are things of legend, so I set my face as flint and decided to see what the fuss was about. Two hours and six polishes later, I see the light. Well, the rainbows. I wouldn't say these are the best holo polishes EVAH because I don't think they are. They are pretty amazing though, even for two coats I needed (some reviewers seem to get away with one coat) Here is Obnoxious Annie and Black Gold, Texas Tea with Lippmann Gel Effect topcoat. Application was easy and cleanup a cinch.

I bought these a long time ago, with the thought of doing the tortoise shell mani, but realized I hadn't bought the third color needed :( So I painted 4, yes 4 coats each of Elevation Temperance and Cascade. They're both true jelly polishes, sheer yet buildable in three or four coats. This is post-mani, red cuticles and all, but I wanted to show the squishiness and gloss they have. I wore this four days with not the slightest bit of wear or chips- Bettina Pro-B Color-Fusing base and Color Enhancing topcoat.

My lovely inspiration is the ever classy Bee of Bee Polished. She did a black and white mani for a group challenge here that I pinned and vowed to try. Of course, I switched up the colors a bit- Orly Grave Mistake and OPI Roll in the Hague.

Loving watching youtube videos from Candice aka MrCandiipants here. I made the mistake of watching MOST of the tutorial for fall flowers, then did my nail art. Forgot the leaves at the end of the video, clearly proving the art is flowers, so mine are a bit more abstract. Bummed. However, the gorgeous base colors I have on are from a new-to-me brand, Priti NYC. These are Italian Alder and Paper Birch from Dusk in Paris fall collection. Beautiful application and brush. Lippmann Gel Lab topcoat. The artwork is dabbled various pastel polishes.
