Happy New Year, by the way! My apologies for not posting a bit more, but this round of holidays had left me feeling more slothful than usual. Plus, I just wanted to hang in my house and play with my dog. I did play with nail polish, too. I took pictures, but I still have yet to post them. Here we have one of the colors I’ve played with. Hope you find this flakey polish as gorgeous as I did.
On the Llarowe website, it’s been described as “Sapphire tinted sheer based blue to green flake.”
I chose to layer River over Pretty & Polished’s Bioluminescence (which I thought I had swatched and reviewed, but apparently not). It definitely highlights the prettiness of Colors by Llarowe River. I’ll have to swatch and feature it because I really love the blue.
Now, in case you don’t know, Colors by Llarowe River is a polish that is Dr Who inspired. It can be found on the llarowe site.
Also, in case you don’t know who River is, click here. If you don’t want to know and don’t want spoilers, keep on reading!
As I said earlier, I layered it over a blue, wanting to show how it plays when layered over another color. On two fingers, I used two coats and I even included a macro for it, too!
Formula for this was great because I totally piled it on and it still dried very quickly. Can you imagine that? A glitter/flakey polish that dries quickly!
On to the pics.
Please pardon the pics in the upcoming posts. I’ve been playing around with a few cameras, trying to find one that I really like. I found that the FujiFilm F900 EXR that I’ve been using for the past year hasn’t been playing well with my current light box set up. This set of pictures was taken using FujiFilm X-Pro 1 with a 60mm Fuji lens. It’s supposed to be good for macros. It’s supposed to be the best macro Fuji lens Fuji has for that camera. Let me know what you think. I like the colors with the Pro better than the old point and shoot I had.
Loving how it all looks, don’t you?
See the flashes of blue-green and then blue in the flakes? Stunning!
Thanks for making it this far.
