Colors by Llarowe Group Customs Winter 2018-2019 Swatches and Review

Right at the end of December, Leah Ann of Colors by Llarowe made three customs for members of her Facebook brand groups (see list of links at the end of the post). Sadly, due to changes in Facebook algorithms, a bunch of people missed them. But she is amazing, and is re-opening these babies for sale to members of the Facebook groups only on Feburary 1 12PM MST to February 7 12PM MST. If you are not already a member of the Facebook groups and want these, please join now! Since I was able to buy them the first time around, I thought I would share pics!

Colors by Llarowe January and February 2019 Polishes of the Month Swatches and Review

Coming on February 1st are the new Colors by Llarowe Polishes of the Month for January and February! These are a stunning linear holo and a jelly flake with flashes of holo glitter. This is a bittersweet release, because it comes along with the news that Leah Ann, the maker, is ending retail sales for the time being as she decides to spend more time traveling! Colors by Llarowe will continue to be participating in group projects like Polish Pickup and Hella Handmade Creations, so we don't completely have to cry in our polish. I secretly hope Leah Ann will be so inspired by her travels and all the fun she will be having that she might have some really amazing stuff for us!
