Colors by Llarowe Pirates of Penzance

Hi sweethearts!

Colors by Llarowe Pirates of Penzance is a polish I wanted to show you for the longest time, but inspiration never struck and as you know my polish interest basically disappeared. I'm getting back on track and I've finally got some inspiration to write.


Pretty Woman is one of those classic rom-coms. I'm no big fan of romantic comedies but I do like Pretty Woman. It's witty, smart and, well, romantic.
I especially like the Pirates of Penzance scene so I'm glad there was a polish inspired by it in CbL's Pretty Woman Collection. 

Pirates of Penzance is deep, vibrant red with a strong holographic effect. I guess that the shade is inspired by Vivan's dress worn in the scene.
The holo effect is extremly strong and adds a lot of depth to the finish.

The formula is good. It's creamy and goes on smoothly. I did two very thin coats for full coverage but if you do thicker coats you'll probably get full coverage with just one coat.

Oh, for your information, I just bought myself a new camera. A DSLR Canon EOS 1200D. I've never used a DSLR camera before so I'm still getting used to it. I still won't get the white balance right and sometimes the focus, but I'm working on it. The pictures are still a lot better than with my old Exilim compact camera.

What you see in the pictures are two coats of Colors by Llarowe Pirates of Penzance and one coat of Pretty Serious Crystal Coat.

Enchanted Polish Dragon Egg

Hi darlings!

Long time no write. I guess you may want an explanation. The simple truth is that I completely lost interest in nail polish. It went from 100 to 0 in less than two months. Well, maybe from 100 to 3. I still painted my nails, but only about once a week. A lot of things were changing in my life and I wanted to do other things so the blog sort of died out on its own and I've been out of the nail polish loop for about six months.

Until I saw an instagram post of this polish, Enchanted Polish Dragon Egg, and basically fell head over heels into nail polish again.
This polish finally arrived to my house the other day and since then I wanted to write a post for you about it. I've been thinking about if it's a good idea to start this blog up again, but I decided that yes it is. I'm not going to post as frequently as I did before and not put any pressure on myself. If inspiration strikes I'll probably blog. As of right now I can't say how often that is. Maybe a few times a year or a few times a week. We'll see. 

Back to Dragon Egg. Its a pink-ish red shimmer with a subtle holographic effect and lots of iridescent flakes. It's amazing. Absolutely beautiful. If I imagine dragon eggs, this is what they'd look like.

The formula is good. It's a bit sheer but three coats gave full coverage. The finish becomes a little textured when dry so you'll need a good top coat to make the finish shiny and smooth.

What you see in the pictures are three coats of Enchanted Polish Dragon Egg and one coat of Pretty Serious Crystal Coat.
