Sunday Swatch Spam: Colors by Llarowe

I hope everyone is having a good weekend!  Recently I took out all of the Colors By Llarowe I owned, and took pictures on a sunny day.  I originally planned to show off the pink shades leading up to Valentines Day, but since I wasn’t able to do that- I decided to just show ALL of them in one go!  Be prepared for lots of blindingly beautiful pictures! 🙂
CbL Collage
I’m a new convert to CbL’s- I resisted for awhile (I have so many polishes, I usually wait to try new brands until there’s something I just can’t live without)- and that ‘can’t live without’ polish came when I saw pictures of Precious Metal.  I got a few- fell in love- got a few more- and now I’m hooked!  I don’t have a ton yet, but every single one of these is absolutely amazing.

I don’t say this lightly- these are some of the nicest polishes I own.  Not that I’m an expert, but at over 1,000 polishes- that’s saying quite a bit.  Every single one has blown my mind with it’s beauty.  Every single one applies like an absolute dream.  The 2 shimmer polishes were a touch thicker than their holographic sisters, but still applied great.  Many of the holographic polishes are opaque in 1 coat.  There’s some in the lineup that aren’t quite my cup of tea, but I don’t think I’ve seen anything from Colors by Llarowe that isn’t pretty.
Colors by Llarowe Smoke Gets In Your Eyes
First up is Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, which was (sadly) a Limited Edition polish that came out alongside the Valentine’s Day polishes.  It is a simply stunning brown jelly filled with an intense gold to red to green shimmer.  I adore this polish on looks alone, but the name really gets me.

I love the Platters- I grew up listening to their music because my mom and my grandma played it constantly.  I can’t think of any of their songs without thinking of my Grandma’s house, because I’m fairly confident it’s all she ever played (or rather- I don’t remember anything else!.  I miss her so much- so this makes me think of her and therefore I love it :).  I saw that one of the upcoming polishes is called The Great Pretender- which I plan on getting regardless of what it looks like!

Next is Sparkles Are a Girls Best Friend!
Colors by Llarowe Sparkles Are A Girls Best Friend
This is a stunning, bright pink holographic polish filled with purple flash and extra sparkle.  It’s SO bright and fun!
Colors by Llarowe Sparkles Are A Girls Best Friend
The polish that started my collection- Precious Metal.
Colors by Llarowe Precious Metal
Precious Metal is a cool, blue toned grey polish filled with an orange shimmer that is noticable even indoors, though never blinding.  I find myself staring at my nails every time I use this one!
Colors by Llarowe Precious Metal
Next we have Dirty Diana!
Colors by Llarowe Dirty Diana
I confess, I did buy this one 90% for the name.  But I am SO glad I did!  Dirty Diana is a beautiful magenta strong holographic polish.  When I’ve worn this on ‘normal’ days (and not taking photos), I only use 1 coat!  This was beautiful inside, as well as outside in the sun.
Colors by Llarowe Dirty Diana
This pretty purple polish is Tank Tops and Flip Flops.
Colors by Llarowe Tank Tops and Flip Flops
I believe Tank Tops and Flip Flops is retired- but keep your eyes open at blog sales, I occasionally see it pop up!  This is a beautiful muted violet holographic polish.  Just gorgeous!Colors by Llarowe Tank Tops and Flip Flops
Next is another of my very favorites- It’s Shocking!
Colors by Llarowe It's Shocking!
It’s Shocking! is a bright, hot pink holographic polish with a bit of a blurple sheen.   SO bright and pretty- my camera had a hard time capturing it!Colors by Llarowe It's Shocking!
Now we have Beat It, from the Michael Jackson collection (which Dirty Diana was also part of)!
Colors by Llarowe Beat It
Beat It is a charcoal holographic polish with a blue flash.  I’m not sure if this is retired or not- it may be.  If so, I’m sorry for making you drool!  Super intense linear holo, and really pretty indoors as well.Colors by Llarowe Beat It
Last but not least, we have Rizzo!
Colors by Llarowe Rizzo
Rizzo is a pale baby pink linear holo.  It’s a bit more ‘metallic’ than some of the other polishes I showed today- it reminds me a bit of Color Club Halo-Graphic, but more baby-pinkish!  But that same kind of metallic feel.  This is probably the most intense holographic CbL’s I have!

Above The Curve Valentine’s Day 2014

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays- though it has nothing to do with the romance part.   One of the main colors for Valentine’s Day is PINK- how could I NOT love it?!  All of the wonderful Valentine’s Day nail polish collections always contain glorious shades of pink, and it’s totally awesome!

I actually have like- a TON of pink related posts to show you all.  I had a box full of polishes to post throughout this past week- but we’ve had nothing but dreary weather.  Yesterday, even though we had 5″ of snow (which down here in Alabama is a ton!)- we had a bright, sunny day made even brighter by the white snow!  So I went on a swatching spree while I could- so be on the lookout for a lot of pink themed posts even though Valentine’s will be over 🙂  I’ll posted my Valentine’s mani on Instagram (@polish_monster)- it’s nothing too exciting, but I did dabble in nail art (which is to say, I used a dotting tool in it’s most basic capacity). 🙂

Today I’m going to be showing off one of the only ‘sets’ I have for Valentine’s Day this year- I bought plenty of individual polishes from indie brands though, which you’ll see over the next week.  These beauties are the Valentine’s Day offerings from Above the Curve!  I LOVE Above the Curve- their polishes are always amazing, and Angel and Shawn (owners) are both such amazing people that I’m lucky enough to consider friends.

Anywho, enough rambling- onto the pretty pictures!

ATC Valentines Collage

First we have Truly, Madly, Deeply.

Above The Curve Truly Madly DeeplyTruly, Madly, Deeply is a beautiful orchid holographic polish.  Orchid seems to be quite the trend this year for Valentine’s Day collections- at least that I’ve seen!  It has a pretty pink shimmer and a more subdued holographic finish.  Almost metallic feeling, though it’s certainly not a metallic polish.
Above The Curve Truly Madly DeeplyAs I expect with Above the Curve polishes, application was wonderful.  I used 2 coats with KBShimmer Clearly on Top topcoat for the photos shown.
Above The Curve Truly Madly Deeply
And because this song reminds me of my high school prom, I’m going to include the Truly, Madly, Deeply video.  I can’t resist!  You can listen to it as you look at the rest of the pictures 🙂

Next I have Circle of Love!

Above The Curve Circle of LoveCircle of Love is a fun glitter topper, filled with TONS of circle glitter and hearts in every shade and finish of red, pink and white!  This is definitely Valentine’s Day in a bottle! 

Above The Curve Circle of LoveI didn’t have any issues with this one- I chose to dab the glitter on where I wanted it rather than paint it on, but I had no trouble at all getting hearts or circles onto the brush.  I had to fish a little when I wanted something specific though 😉  Photos show 1 ‘coat’ of Circle of Love with KBShimmer Clearly On Top topcoat.  
Above The Curve Circle of Love
Last but not least, my favorite- All You Need Is Love!  WINE!!!  
Above The Curve All You Need is Love/WINE!*Swoons* what a simply stunning polish.  I adore the name, too- you can probably tell from the picture just under this, that in reality the Love part of the name is X’d out, with Wine ‘handwritten’ over!  I love my kids- but man, I definitely feel that way a lot of the time 🙂  
Above The Curve All You Need is Love/WINE!All You Need Is Love!  Wine!!! is a breathtaking polish filled with- well, TONS of things.  It’s a brown/wine holographic base, filled with purple, red, copper, brown glitters, holographic glitter- it’s really amazing.  The base polish is actually quite opaque, so the glitters in it peek through but aren’t super obvious.  This is one of those polishes that sparkles like crazy in the sun- but is equally beautiful inside as well.   
Above The Curve All You Need is Love/WINE!

 

You can find Above the Curve polishes in their Big Cartel store, and also at Overall Beauty.  You can follow the ATC Facebook page and ATC on Instagram for news and updates.  Polishes range from $7 to $9- and don’t forget, $1 from every bottle is donated to Shriner’s Hospitals for Children!

Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer: My Indecisive Valentine Collection

*Press Sample*

Hello everyone!  Today I have some *gorgeous* colors from Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer to show you!  The My Indecisive Valentine Collection has 6 beautiful colors in it- and today I’ll be showing 2 of those!  I have Flash Forward Fantasy and I Still Adore.  This collection, along with Love Makes You Do The Wacky (seen here), Deepest Inquisitions, and All I’ll Ever Need, will be available on February 2, 2014 at 3pm EST!  Be sure to grab what you want- it will be the last ever restock for the non-collection polishes, and the Valentines polishes will only make a second appearance if demand is high!

Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer Flash Forward Fantasy
First up is Flash Forward Fantasy.  I think Julie managed to nail the exact color of my skin tone with this one 🙂  Flash Forward Fantasy is a nude polish filled with violet flakies and a strong pink to gold shift.  This polish dries matte, but I opted to use topcoat to bring out the sparkle!
Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer Flash Forward Fantasy
Coverage was good, I used 3 thin coats for these photos with KBShimmer Clearly on Top topcoat.  I ended up bumping my fingers a few times before photos- and I worried that I would have to remove the polish on that nail and start over, but I was able to just add another coat in the bumped area and it smoothed it out nicely and evenly.  Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer Flash Forward Fantasy

The next polish I received was I Still Adore-  an orchid holographic polish!
Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer I Still Adore
I Still Adore is simply *stunning* outside in the sunlight.  This is a bright, beautiful dusty purple pink/orchid holographic polish with a bit of a pink to gold color shift.  You can see the pink flash in some of these photos!

Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer I Still AdoreCoverage was wonderful- the polish was thick, but I didn’t find it hard to work with.  This was pretty much a 1 coat polish, but I used 2 for good measure.  Everything went on smoothly and didn’t need any cleanup- and I didn’t use topcoat!  You definitely want this polish in your life!

Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer I Still Adore

As I said above- the My Indecisive Valentine collection will be on sale February 2, 2014 at 3pm EST.  Be sure to grab the ones you want- there won’t be many of each color, and there will only be a second restock if demand warrants it!  It will also be the *last restock ever* before retirement of Love Makes You Do the Wacky, Deepest Inquisitions, and All I’ll Ever Need.

You can find these beauties at Julie’s store:  http://www.blueeyedgirllacquer.bigcartel.com/

Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer – Love Makes You Do The Wacky

Ah, nothing like a 2 month break around the holidays!  My absence was not planned, but I just got busy and distracted.  Sorry about that!   I may still show a few of the holiday polishes I bought- I didn’t get many this year, but I do have a few new pretties!

Today I’ll be showing off a GORGEOUS holographic polish- Love Makes You Do The Wacky from Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer!

I actually received this polish back in September as part of my birthday present from Julie, the creator.  It was part of the Once More With Feeling collection, which was one of her debut lines for Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer!  The Once More With Feeling collection is based on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and this particular polish is for Willow, Buffy’s best friend and witch extraordinaire.  Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer Love Makes You Do The Wacky
Love Makes You Do The Wacky is a light purple holographic polish with a fuchsia flash.
Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer Love Makes You Do The Wacky
Application was wonderful- the polish went on smoothly and evenly.  I didn’t need any cleanup at all!  These photos show 3 thin coats with top coat (I believe I used KBShimmer Clearly on Top).

Unfortunately, the Buffy line has been retired  (sadface).  But, the reason I’m posting this one tonight- is that Julie announced today that Wacky is making a return!

Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer Love Makes You Do The WackyJulie will be re-releasing Love Makes You Do the Wacky for ONE restock- it will be available alongside her Valentines Day polishes on February 2, 2014 at 3pm EST!  There will only be a few of each of the polishes stocked this time, and the last chance for Wacky- so if you want it, be sure to be there!  I’ve seen pictures, and I can promise you- the Valentines Day collection is BEAUTIFUL!  There’ are some definite must-haves there!

You can follow Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer on Facebook and Instagram for news and updates, and you can find her polishes in her Big Cartel store!  Be sure to check them out- she has a lot of beautiful core polishes, including the 2 customs she made for me for my birthday that are now available for everyone (Monster’s Tea at Tiffany’s and Jiggery Pokery)!


Silly Bee’s Chickadees Diana’s Nippley Holiday

*Press Sample*

Good Evening Everyone!  Tonight I have something EXTRA special for you all!

Awhile back, Melissa of Silly Bee’s Chickadees asked me if I would be interested in collaborating with her for her blogger-inspired Christmas collection.  Of course I said yes!  We were tasked with deciding what our favorite Christmas movie was-  and then deciding what our favorite scene of that movie was.

The BEST part about this collection- is that each blogger was able to pick a charity for proceeds from their polish’s sales to be donated to!  20% of each $10 polish will be donated to the charity of that blogger’s choice.

For the proceeds of my polish, I chose Toys for Tots.  It’s Christmastime, and that was the first thing that popped in my head.  It’s also one of the charities my family donates to each year.  My children (ok- mostly my oldest, my son is still too young to ‘get’ it) help pick out toys and bikes each year for Toys for Tots and our local Bikes or Bust campaign.  The holidays are a hard time of year for many families- during December we try and help out where we can.

Along with myself, the bloggers contributing to the Gift of Melly collection are Dulcie of OhThreeOhFour, Mishka of Accio Lacquer, Stephanie of Imperfectly Painted, and Emily of The Lacquerologist!  This collage shows their polishes and the scenes that inspired them.  Be sure to check out their posts!
Silly Bees Collage

For my polish, it was a pretty easy decision.  I love a LOT of holiday movies- but National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is probably my very favorite.  It reminds me a little of my own family- which is probably why it’s a favorite for all of us 🙂

When asked about a scene that stood out for me- well, there’s plenty of course!  But one in particular is always Clark’s dream sequence, where he’s fantasizing about the backyard pool and the stork clerk he met earlier 😉

And so from that scene inspiration- Melissa created Diana’s Nippley Holiday!

Silly Bee's My Polish

If you’re unsure where the name comes from- here’s another movie clip for your enjoyment 🙂

Diana’s Nippley Holiday is a very light blue crelly base, filled with hot pink flowers, red, green, and white circle glitter, white hexes, and gold magic dust.

Silly Bee's Chickadees Diana's Nippley Holiday

The blue base is for the pool water, the flowers and green are for the summer aspect of the sequence, and red for the bathing suit!  Every polish in the Gift of Melly collection contain the magic gold dust, to tie them all together 🙂

Silly Bee's Chickadees Diana's Nippley Holiday

To be totally honest, I did have a little bit of trouble initially with my pretty polish- it got thick quickly after it was opened, so I added a bit of thinner to make things work well.  Melissa has fixed the other bottles to ensure they all apply wonderfully, so this shouldn’t even be an issue for you!  Once I added a touch of thinner, application went well.  I used just over 2 coats for these photos (but not quite 3 full coats), plus topcoat.  I didn’t have to do any fishing for the flowers or other glitter- they all came out easily!

Silly Bee's Chickadees Diana's Nippley Holiday

These polishes are being released on November 15 at 11am CST.  You can buy each individually, and there are also limited amounts of box sets that contain all of the polishes, plus a few surprises!

Elevation Polish: Naughty by Nature Collection

*Press Sample*

Hello everyone!  Today I have the gorgeous new polishes from Elevation Polish to show you all!  The Naughty by Nature collection was just released on Thursday.  I *really* wanted to have this post up on release day- but the universe had other plans!  My family was super sick the whole week- and by the end of the week of taking care of them, I was down for the count too.  But better a little late than never!

There are 6 BEAUTIFUL colors in this collection- and the exciting part is that they’re all water based!  I don’t know about you guys, but my experiences with water based polishes in the past haven’t been that great (though they’ve also been limited).  I could barely tell a difference between these polishes and other Elevations!  I did notice that all 6 got a bit thick when exposed to air more quickly than my ‘normal’ polish does, and a few were thicker in general.  I probably will add a few drops of thinner later (I did not for photos).  That’s more of a personal preference- as you can see from the pictures, they all apply wonderfully!  I could barely smell a polish smell at all (it was very subtle), and the dry time was just fine.  Lulu has really impressed me with these- and that’s just the formula, not the beautiful colors!

First is Forest of the Fog- a beautiful teal jelly polish filled with blue and purple shimmer.

Elevation Polish Forest of the Fog

This polish is so pretty!  I really love the purple shimmer with the teal base- it’s a fun combination.  The shimmer is definitely a little shy- it’s noticeable, but it’s not super in-your-face and instead is more subtle.  These photos are outside in the sunshine, which is why it’s cooperating!  Inside, you have more of a dark teal jelly polish.  Photos show 2 coats with no topcoat.
Elevation Polish Forest of the Fog

Then I topped Forest of the Fog with Pitaraq, a gorgeous flake topcoat!
Elevation Polish Pitaraq

After years of being a polishaholic- my love for flakies of all types has never diminished.  So of course, this is one of my favorites of the collection!  Pitaraq is a fun topper filled with white, silver, and blue flakies and blue microshimmer!  This polish will be PERFECT for the winter months coming up- it feels like I just spread frost over my nails!  This is 1 coat (no topcoat) over Forest of the Fog.
Elevation Polish Pitaraq

Next is a wonderful red cream, Volcanic Dust!
Elevation Polish Volcanic Dust

This polish really surprised me and was another favorite in the collection.  I’m normally not a fan of creams- I have a good amount of them, but I rarely get excited for them.    But Volcanic Dust looked great on, and applied great!  Pictures show 2 coats with no topcoat.
Elevation Polish Volcanic Dust

Ah, and now for my favorite of the collection- Darkest Storm, a beautiful dark blue holographic stunner!
Elevation Polish Darkest Storm

Darkest Storm is a very dark, almost midnight blue holographic polish.  Because of the darker shade, the holographic effect is blinding outside in the sun!  Photos show 2 coats with no topcoat.
Elevation Polish Darkest Storm

Next is Black Ice, a charcoal polish filled with lots of shimmer!
Elevation Polish Black Ice

Black Ice dries to a velvet matte finish on it’s own.  I ADORE how it looks with topcoat on top though!  This beauty sparkled so much in the sun that it almost looks holographic.  But it’s not!  It’s filled with a silver and white shimmer that is always visible, and also with multicolored shimmer that comes alive with topcoat.  This polish applied like a DREAM- I didn’t have to do any cleanup at all!  Photos are 2 coats with topcoat.
Elevation Polish Black Ice

Last but not least is Naked Night Sky, a brown jelly polish accented with aqua and blue glitters!
Elevation Polish Naked Night Sky

I actually ended up liking this polish a bit more than I had anticipated- unlike Lulu, the creator, I don’t love brown nail polish (her blog is http://lovebrownnailpolish.wordpress.com/ lol).  But I did really like this!  On her store listing, Lulu advises to wait for each coat to dry before applying the next one, and I would agree with this completely.  This polish is actually the only one that gave me a bit of trouble, and it was because I was initially not following that advice, and the second coat would pull and ruin the first coat.  Once I waited, I had no more issues.  Photos are 2 thick coats plus topcoat.
Elevation Polish Naked Night Sky

And there you have it, the Naughty by Nature collection!  As I said earlier, these polishes were released on Thursday- Darkest Storm is sold out for now, but the rest are still available!  Elevation Polish restocks on the 7th and 22nd of the month, so Darkest Storm will be available again then.  The collection is also going to be launched at Llarowe.com, though I don’t believe the restock date has been announced yet.

Femme Fatale Cosmetics Swatches and Review!

*Press Sample*

Good evening everyone!  Today was the last day of Blizzcon, the annual convention for all fans of Warcraft, Starcraft, and Diablo!  I’ve mentioned before that I’m a very long-term World of Warcraft player- I’ve been playing since just slightly after launch (so *gulp* over 8 years now)- and still actively play.  So of course, this weekend was full of excitement as I watched the events on my computer via a virtual ticket (traveling to Anaheim is just not in the cards right now!)- and I decided there wasn’t a better way to celebrate than to do a subtle World of Warcraft post!

While not created specifically for World of Warcraft- if you’re familiar with Femme Fatale Cosmetics and play World of Warcraft, some of the names and themes may seem very familiar.  The owners play, and often let the beautiful places and things within the game inspire the creations!

First up tonight we have Aqueous- a beautiful blue crelly polish filled with teal, navy, blue, magenta and pink glitters.

Femme Fatale Aqueous

LOVE this polish!  I’m a sucker for crelly and jelly polishes- seeing the glitters suspended through different levels makes me smile 🙂

Femme Fatale Polish Aqueous

Application was wonderful.  I got plenty of extra large pink glitters with absolutely no fishing- I even had to put a few back!  I didn’t have to worry about dabbing, I applied like I would a normal cream polish and got wonderful glitter placement.  My photos show 2 coats with topcoat.
Femme Fatale Polish Aqueous

Next is a long favorite of mine- Spring Fling!

Femme Fatale Spring Fling
Spring Fling has been a favorite Femme Fatale color of mine for awhile now- I love mint greens!  And adding pink?  Must be meant for me 🙂  There’s also plenty of white glitters, diamonds, and micro neon green glitter!

Femme Fatale Spring FlingApplication was wonderful again- the only issue I had (if this is even an issue?) is that I had so much luck with the larger glitters, I had to start putting diamonds back into the bottle.  My photos show 2 coats with topcoat.

Femme Fatale Spring FlingNext is Witchful Thinking, a beautiful glitter topper filled with grey, silver, black, glitters and shimmer!

Femme Fatale Witchful Thinking

Witchful Thinking is part of the 2013 Halloween Trio.  My first and last picture show 1 coat of Witchful Thinking over Elevation Polish Darkest Storm, and the middle photo shows 1 coat of Witchful Thinking over Cult Nails Nevermore (plain black).

Femme Fatale Witchful Thinking

Witchful Thinking sparkled like MAD outside in the sun!  Application was great- these photos show only 1 coat!  I did have to do a bit of dabbing to fill in a few holes, but for the most part it went on as shown- which is crazy to me, since it looks like I placed each large glitter purposefully!  It sort of reminds me a bit of fish scales (in a good way) 🙂

Femme Fatale Witchful Thinking

Last but not least is Lime Thief, a beautiful lime green jelly polish filled with green and orange glitters!

Femme Fatale Polish Lime Thief

This polish was my surprise favorite of the bunch.  Honestly, this is one I probably wouldn’t have given a second look to- I didn’t even love it looking at the bottle in person.  And then I put it on- and WOW!  Lime Thief is incredibly juicy looking, and so bright and happy!  I wore Lime Thief for a few days before I was forced to take it off 🙂

Femme Fatale Polish Lime Thief

Pictures show 2 1/2 coats with topcoat (I added a thin 3rd layer just around my nail line, but not a full coat).  Application was amazing- no fishing, no dabbing, no cleanup- just normal application.  Perfection!

Femme Fatale Lime Thief

Femme Fatale Cosmetics not only sells their own beautiful nail polishes, they also offer an amazing line of mineral based cosmetics (I own about 15 of their beautiful eye shadows, they’re wonderful!), and they’re also now a nail polish stockist for Australia!  They offer local and imported nail polish to Australian customers, including Emily de Molly, Enchanted Polish, HARE, and Girly Bits among many others!

Femme Fatale nail polish is available via http://femmefatalecosmetics.com.au/ for $10 AUD, and they’re now able to ship overseas!  For nail polish lovers outside of Australia though, sometimes shipping can be a bit prohibitive- so Femme Fatale polish is also available through the following international stockists:

Ninja Polish (coming soon)
Color4Nails
Norway Nails
Mei Mei Signatures
Beauty So Fly
Harlow & Co.
