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!

PANDORA'S Makeup Box Chai Latte + Rainbow Honey Summer Blossom + Girly Bits Shift Happens

Here is a Thanksgiving-y manicure featuring PANDORA'S Makeup Box Chai Latte and Rainbow Honey Summer Blossom and Girly Bits Shift Happens.

I really love the way the yellow and orange glitters work with the neutral base! It's perfectly seasonal yet still resisting the urge the wear all the vampy polishes! I really like how Shift Happens looks over Chai Latte - it's really subtle but totally gorgeous.

Sinful Colors - Endless Paradise

I love this colour! I was searching for Blue zoom by Milani one day but couldn't find it anywhere when I stumbled across this polish from Sinful Colours. It was cheap, only $1.99, and the perfect substitute.

The pictures don't quite capture this polish either so just picture a brighter yet deeper blue. It's referred to as an electric blue and I couldn't agree more with that description.

I think blue is on trend right now but who really pays attention to that. I like a colour because I like it, and I really like this one!

MoYou London Sailor 05 Stamping - First Attempt at Stamping (Be Kind!)

Riley and I tried stamping when Konad came to North America sometime back in 2012. We tried it once, maybe twice and kind of gave up. Well, 2 years later we thought we would try it again! 

I really loved the idea of stamping over some sort of gradient or mishmash of colours so I used my DIY OPI Sheer Tint knockoffs and got to work. 

The plate I chose was a MoYou London Sailor plate #05. I purchased it at Pheonix Beauty Lounge at Pacific Mall. The sales lady recommended Kleancolor Black polish for stamping. It's perfect! Unlike the stamping! Hey! It was our first attempt in a long time. I still LOVE how it turned out. I happily wore this mani for a few days.

Llarowe - Gemini Rising

What an awesomely holographic polish!! Well what do you know, it's from Colors by Llarowe. I'm not one for green polish usually but Gemini Rising might just make me a convert. 

I can't help bu think of that line from It's Raining Men that goes like "temperatures rising, the street's the place to goooo," when I think of the title of this polish.

This is such a smooth polish; it's a dream to apply! Oh and a dream to remove. I like glitters but holographic polishes are so beautiful without the difficult removal.

Just look at that in the light! Awesome!

Milani - High Voltage, Sweet Nectar, and Ruby Valentine

I adore Milani lipsticks!! They're creamy and have just enough slip that they go on smoothly yet won't wear off too soon or bleed profusely. They have a fruity scent that I quite like, others might find it a bit too sweet but really it's a nice perk to me. The packaging is classy, to me (excuse the fingerprints). 

These three are all richly pigmented and great for a bright, bold lip.

High Voltage
Sweet Nectar
Ruby Valentine
You can check Sweet Nectar in action on Killer Colours.

We bought our Milani lipsticks at CVS.
