Colors by Llarowe Bring Us the Girl Harlow & Co. Exclusive

Colors by Llarowe Bring Us the Girl might be one of the prettiest coral holographic polishes of all time. This is a simply stunning pink-coral holo polish that has small pink glitter laced throughout. It has a slightly gritty texture without top.

As you can see from the photos, this is a really unique polish. I personally don't have anything else like it in my stash so I am more than happy to own this Harlow & Co. Exclusive nail polish. While it is exclusive to Harlow & Co., it is not limited edition. It will become available once again- rejoice!

The holo in this polish is intense. I fell in love with it immediately and then I stepped into the sunlight and knew I would be wearing it again. This is perfect for summertime - tips or toes :)

China Glaze Spring In My Step & China Glaze at Costco! (For cheap!!)

On our blog you see a lot of holos, glitters, multichromes, etc. but today we present to you a creme! This is China Glaze Spring In My Step. A gorgeous creamy light salmon pink. It covered perfectly in 2 coats. 

As for the Costco part of this post... we got this polish along with half the China Glaze City Flourish collection from Costco at $19.99. What a deal! I think this is a gorgeous collection, especially the Peonies & Park Ave. half of the collection which is mostly pastels. 

While this polish is great, it's not perfect. I definitely needed a thick top coat to smooth it out as it was ever so slightly patchy. However, I love it and it was worth the extra patience required during application. I cannot wait to try the rest of the collection! Pictures to come :)

Colors by Llarowe Young Turks

To say I love this polish would be an understatement because... I FREAKING looooooooooove this nail polish! This could quite possibly be my favourite nail polish ever. Yeah, I'm that serious.

It's the most amazing turquoise-blue colour plus it's holographic! It reminds me of the ocean so naturally it's a winner. Anything that reminds me of the ocean has my heart.

Look at that holo!!! Hey they way my fingers are placed kinda reminds me of a wave. Do you see it? ;)

This is from the Colors by Llarowe Spring 2014 collection. It's currently out of stock but you can find other polishes from Colors by Llarowe (plus other brands) here.

Cult Nails You're My Dandylion

Cult Nails You're My Dandylion is a really great yellow. Unfortunately, I didn't find the polish to be a stunner formula-wise. It was a bit on the thick side and it started chipping after one day of wear. I was very disappointed. For such a bright, cheery colour, this polish made me very sad. OMG just kidding! I don't actually get that upset about polishes performing poorly. There also appears to be a slight shimmer to the polish when you look at the bottle but it doesn't translate to the nail.

I used to have an aversion to yellow polishes. I never thought they would look very good with my skin tone but I'm realizing that isn't the case. 

The photos make the polish look a little deeper than it is in real life, especially the last photo. But it is quite cheery and bright for sure! Just picture it a little lighter.

Girly Bits Get Weaponized + Lynnderella Her Name Is Petal

When you can't leave good enough alone, you add glitter to an already awesome manicure. That's what I did with Girly Bits Get Weaponized. I decided to add Lynnderella Her Name is Petal to two nails as an accent. As with any and all Lynnderella polishes, it applies like a dream. I used 2 coats to ensure full coverage. 

I really loved the combination of these two polishes. It's a springy, bright and fun manicure that made me smile whenever I looked at my nails. It's silly but true! Especially in the light with the holographic glitter in Get Weaponized.

Girly Bits Get Weaponized

Glittery goodness! Get Weaponized by Girly Bits is so incredibly sparkly and beautiful. Right after pink, blue polish is always irresistible to me. This is a gorgeous turquoise-y blue with purple glitter and iridescent bits throughout. 

I cannot stress how much I love this nail polish. It really is phenomenal and I fell in love the moment I applied it to my nails. As with any Girly Bits polish, application was a breeze. I barely experienced tip wear after many days of wear which is awesome. If you like blues, then this polish is for you! Absolutely stunning!

Chaos & Crocodiles Butterfly Shenanigans & Girly Bits Twitterpated

A garden on my nails! That's what this manicure reminded me of. I was totally into it except my nails were just a tad too long for my liking. Twitterpated by Girly Bits is an awesome nail polish - hoographic with the most amazing pink shimmer. It's a stunner!!

As for Chaos & Crocodiles Butterfly Shenanigans ---- AMAZING! It's one of my favorite glitter toppers for sure. I love the mix of neons and with a clear base, it goes well over almost any polish. This manicure is case in point. I love how well Chaos & Crocodiles glitters apply - one coat glides on with ample coverage. It's an amazing polish brand.

Girly Bits Shift Happens over CrowsToes Indian Summer

Girly Bits Shift Happens

 While I was wearing CrowsToes Indian Summer, I wanted to amp up the mulitchrome effect even more. So! I topped it with Girly Bits Shift Happens. 

Girly Bits Shift Happens

In hindsight, I realize that wasn't the best layer decision because the magical impact of Shift Happens is kind of lost in the multichrome madness that is CrowsToes Indian Summer. But Shift Happens really did amp up the shift effect plus it added a little shimmer which is always welcome on my nails. This is a gorgeous topper that is sure to bring beauty to any mani. I will definitely be trying it again over perhaps a blue or deep purple.
