Colors by Llarowe: Thriller, Tank Tops and Flip Flops, and Monkey See, Monkey Do review

Well folks, I know it's been a bit since I last posted. I started a new job at the beginning of December and that made things a bit difficult. Then to top that off and make it even harder, my husband and I opened our own used car dealership. So, to say that I have no free time is an understatement. Then just recently I was fired from my full time job as a Certified Nursing Assistant/Medication Aide, because I had Influenza-like symptoms and a fever for over a week so I was told by my doctor that I was not able to work until I was fever free for 24 continuous hours. Since I missed a little over a week, mind you I was only scheduled 3 of those days, the Director of Nursing called me and told me I no longer had a position. So now I am at the car lot full time and let me tell you, all the paper work and stuff that I have to do down here is like having 4 regular jobs! So, I have been trying really hard to get some blogging in here and there. What I've ended up with is random notes about different polishes written down all over the place! You can probably envision the mess that I have...Anyway on to the part you really came here for!

I have some very beautiful polishes for you, Colors by Llarowe, from the awesome and very talented Leah Ann LaRowe founder of Llarowe, where you can purchase her polishes along with a very large variety of other international and independent brands. She started out as a one woman operation from her kitchen table ordering international brands and selling them to those who wanted them in the US, and has greatly expanded from there. From there she found a whole new world of nail polish in the independent brands that are made by talented artistes (herself included) on a small scale. She added her first independent line in October of 2011 and has grown massively ever since. Like to the point that she's had to search for new web hosts so that her website wouldn't crash on launch days of several very popular brands. Well enough of the information section on with the pretties! I have for your viewing pleasure: Thriller, Tank Tops and Flip Flops, and Monkey See, Monkey Do!

I will start off with Thriller! Thriller is a deep teal (green/blue) with linear holo sparkles! It's an amazing polish, I absolutely love it.

Look at how amazing the sparkles are! This polish has a very pronounced lovely holo rainbow.

See how dark it is, that's only one coat! I really love these polishes, because most of them only require 1 or 2 coats.
 Tank Tops and Flip Flops is up next, and this is a lovely deep violet holo, that to me has some lovely gold shimmers.

This polish is sooo pretty! Look how amazing all the sparkle is here with the flash!

And her without the flash it is still super beautiful. I am extremely impressed with all of the colors that I have purchased of Colors by Llarowe.

 These two are a bit fuzzy but it helps to show the arc of rainbow color in both pictures.


And below you can see it clearly and wonderfully. This was again a one coat polish! and I have no faults with this polish either. I absolutely love this color as well.
Last but not least, I have Monkey See, Monkey Do. Which is an outstanding polish that I absolutely love, I'd almost say my favorite but they are all so pretty! This polish is a blue/gray/light blue with linear and scattered holo, it also has course micro holo and blue micro glitters in it to give it just a bit of extra pizazz. 

This is with the flash. It is so amazing looking at all that sparkle. I seriously could not drive down the road without having to stare at my nails in the sun!

And still freaking amazing without the flash! Okay it is probably my fav of the 3, mostly because I'm a major sucker for a blue polish!

Bottle shot show and still looking wonderful!

I do have on 2 coats of this polish just because I loved it so much and planned to leave it on a bit longer than the others. But you could totally just go with one, you just get more depth with 2.

This color also have a much thicker formula than the other ones that I have. I believe that's to hold up all the extra glitters in there that make it so amazing.

Just a bit different light so you can get an idea of just how amazing this polish is. Because pictures of it look good, but they really don't do it justice. It's an amazing polish!
Now if you are interested in purchasing or just perusing to check out some Colors by Llarowe here are some places to look: the online shop, facebook, twitter, pinterest, or instagram.  I hope that you saw some polishes that you liked here or found something new to love on her website. Please come back again soon so see what else I have lined up for your viewing pleasure. Have a wonderful day and don't forget to smile, you never know whose looking :)
