Colors by Llarowe: Halloween Duo 2015

Good evening, dear readers! I hope you have been having a wonderful week! For today's blog post, I have the new Halloween duo made by Colors by Llarowe to share with you. I've been debating on cutting my nails short and going with a more rounded look, so I decided to test the look out on my non swatch hand. As much as I try, I just don't quite care for this shape on me, and I am jealous of those that can pull it off. Oh well, I'll just have hands with two different lengths and shapes until these grow out a little more. Ha! Now to the polish!
I am in two facebook groups that are dedicated to Colors by Llarowe polish, and in both groups, Leah Ann had a contest to name the shades in the duo. Those that had their names selected won the duo, and one of my name suggestions was picked! Let's start off with the one I named....

Ghouls Just Wanna Have Fun
Stunning, super bright blue toned purple intense linear holo with turquoise blue and hot pink flame

I apparently had Cyndi Lauper on the brain when I came up with this name, but it fits oh so well! This is such a pretty shade of purple, and I am happy to report that I had no staining issues whatsoever. The formula was a little thinner than I've grown to expect from CbL polishes, but I didn't have any cuticle flooding as long as I worked a little slowly and carefully. I used three coats for this photo.

All Jack'd Up
Gorgeous neon orange scattered holo with yellow flame

How awesome is this name, and YAY for orange! I'm so glad to see Leah Ann create another orange shade! This is a beautiful yellow-leaning orange, and I'm sure you already know I am a fan. I just can't get enough orange polish, and this name is fantastic! Like Ghouls Just Wanna Have Fun, the formula was a little on the thinner side, but it was easy to work with provided I worked a little slowly. I used three coats for this photo.


This particular duo was only available for purchase for a limited time, and unfortunately it is no longer available at Llarowe. You might be able to find them in a destash though, and there are other beautiful shades available to purchase.

Until next time, have a wonderful night!
XO!

    1. Thank you! It's fun to try something a little different on occasion, although this may be a little too far outside my comfort zone.

  7. I didn't get to find out about this duo until it was already sold out. Obviously I need to be on social media more! I am so extremely jealous, CBL does holos like no others. That purple is seriously a unicorns dream!
