Colors by Llarowe Penny for Your Thoughts


I post this polish as a warning... Colors by Llarowe Penny for Your Thoughts is a BIG TIME STAINER! I wore this polish about 5 weeks ago and my nails are STILL STAINED. I used 2 coats of Base Coat and yet it still stained my nails terribly. You've been warned. 


It's a bit disappointing because this polish is gorgeously glowy and rich. I had to give it away because I knew I would wear it again despite my better judgment. So there you have it: a gorgeous polish that destroys nails :P Why?!?!

Lynnderella A Moon is Born + Butter London Molly Coddled



I've decided that I need to have all the star and moon polishes. Good thing Lynnderella seems to have an infinite supply of new and exciting polishes featuring those beloved moons and stars.



Here is A Moon is Born which I paired with my perennial favorite Butter London Molly Coddled. I love this combination. The blue shimmered base of the Lynn works so well with the purple creme. As with every Lynnderella, this polish applies like a dream and removal is easier than with most glitters. I used 1 coat of glitter with only minimal fussing. Love!

A Melange of Manis!

It's the holidays and everyone is busy. I've barely had time to paint my nails! They've been naked for more than 2 days (and they're oh so badly stained - thanks Colors by Llarowe!). Anyway, here are some manis I've worn recently.

Girly Bits What Happens In Vegas... Ends Up On Instagram + Selfie Bomb + CrowsToes Her Goose Got Cooked


Well folks... I think I am officially done with long(er) nails. It just feels a lot cleaner and more chic to have short nails like Riley. I thought I would deck out my shorties in something fun! I chose to wear the Girly Bits What Happens in Vegas collection on my nails. 


I paired Selfie Bomb (gold) with What Happens in Vegas... Ends Up On Instagram. I topped Selfie Bomb with CrowsToes Her Goose Got Cooked because Selfie Bomb wasn't what I had hoped for on its own. I was slightly disappointed with these two Girly Bits polishes. Instagram had a very gritty texture that required 2 coats of top coat to smooth and Selfie Bomb was the same. Plus I just didn't like the colours! Oh well, it happens! Luckily I was able to swap and sell them for more pretties.

Zoya Blaze


For a few days I enjoyed rounded, almond-esque nails. I thought I would polish them with something sparkly. Zoya Blaze was the perfect choice. I love the scattered holographic effect in this polish. It's a stunner for sure. I used 2 coats and 1 coat of top coat. I will definitely pull this back out for the holidays!

Colors by Llarowe Rainbow Skittle


Hubba Hubba Holograhic! This is an all-CbL holo skittle topped with I'm Seeing Spots (also by CbL).


Thumb-Pinkie: Paper Moon, Young Turks, Gemini Rising, Woodstock, The Man in the Red Suit.


Oh my goodness do I love holographic polish. I love rainbows too! Here my two loves come together to create the perfect manicure! I really loved how it looked on its own but I thought it would be fun to top everything off (and make it a little more cohesive) with some little black and white glitters. I was not disappointed.

Colors by Llarowe - Julie, Julie, Julie


The season for red tips is fast approaching! If you're looking for something a little different, a little shiny and a lot awesome then you will love Julie, Julie, Julie from Colors by Llarowe. This was part of the Spring 2014 collection and it is no longer available online now. 


I love this cherry red metallic polish! It's so gorgeous and it shines like nothing else. It's the perfect Holiday red!
