colors by llarowe At Last

Press Sample 

Today I have colors by llarowe At Last to share with you. I feel like the polish name describes me a lot right now because I feel like "At Last" some things are falling into place. Back in March, Mr. PG and I found out we were expecting a little girl. Sadly, in April, she was gone and I was filled with lots of sadness. We currently have a 7 year old and while we love him dearly, we were looking forward to expanding our family. Well, last month I found out that we are expecting again. I had quite a scare on my way to NYC for Fashion Week (official term was "threatened miscarriage") and while I'm not totally out of the woods yet, I did have some needed doctor's ordered bed rest to help my body try and reorient itself. Baby Emery is due May 2, 2015 and we are cautiously, happily awaiting his or her arrival.

But back to the polish. While at Cosmoprof North America, Leah Ann LaRowe, the owner of colors by llarowe gave out great gift bags with her newest collections - The Show Me Collection and Emily's Imagination. At Last is from Emily's Imagination and it's this crazy awesome purple blue teal multichrome holographic polish.

I used a base coat of Cult Nails Get It On, 2 coats of polish and finished with Digital Nails Ain't Nobody Got Time For That. Top coat did not dull the polish at all. The first coat of polish was a little thin but the second coat made it nicely opaque.


See what I mean in the sun? The purple comes out to play along with the holographic goodness.


Meanwhile in the shade, you lose the holo but this lovely blue starts to peek out and give it this lovely duochrome look. Best part - no need to wear a base color under... again this is just 2 coats of polish!

Finally inside with the flash, you can see the teal coming through strongly. It's a gorgeous color to wear and I can't wait to put it on again and play with some nail vinyls.

Colors by Llarowe are available through the Llarowe website and range in price from $6 to $12. You can also like it on Facebook, follow on Pinterest, and follow on Instagram.

The Beauty Quartet Subscription Box


I've been a huge fan of Digital Nails since I first stumbled across her Etsy site, so I was extremely excited to hear that she was a part of a new subscription service called The Beauty Quartet.

deborah lippmann Sexyback Lip & Nail Duet


While I love deborah lippmann's nail polishes and especially her new cuticle cream "The Cure", one thing I haven't tried yet is her lipstick. She now has 9 shades available on her website - nudes, berries and corals. This coming month, she’s bringing sexy back. 

LVX Laguna

Press Sample 

The finale of the LVX Summer 2014 collection, as we lead into fall, is Laguna, a beautiful sky blue. I used a base coat of Cult Nails Get It On, 2 coats of polish and finished with LVX Gel like Top Coat. Honestly, this could have been opaque in one coat but I used 2 thin coats to be sure.

So in the sun, this color just wouldn't behave! Look how BRIGHT and brilliant it is!

Meanwhile in the shade, it settled down and showed its true colors. You can see that I had a little cuticle issue but it wasn't from a bad formula - just an unsteady hand on my part.

Inside was pretty perfect too. I love how squishy it looks on my nails - not like a jelly but like a stay puff marshmallow. Would be a great base for clouds or a rainbow nail or just alone. I did not have any issues with staining but did not do a long wear test to double check.

LVX [Website | Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | Instagram] is available on their website for $16 a 15 ml/0.5 oz bottle.  It is big 5 free to include Toluene and Camphor, vegan and cruelty free.
