I have a holo-stravaganza today and tomorrow for you. First up, three blues from Llarowe's Colors by Llarowe collex.
Zipper. This was touted as a near-dupe for the fairly elusive Enchanted Polish Ballerina Sprinkles. I don't have EPBS to compare, though.
A lot of pastel blues are a little finicky, and this one was, too. It was too goopy to put enough coats on to eliminate the VNL on me. I ended up adding a little thinner to it, and it behaved much nicer after that.
I love stamping over a holo, and I thought this pattern looked like zippers! This is Essie No Place Like Chrome. All the stamps are from MJ III plate.
Next up, Rare Bear, a medium blue, intense holo.
I love this one, the holo was so nice and the color is really intense and pigmented.
I stamped some butterflies with white... I think it's Milani White on the Spot.
Last, but not least, In The Navy.
This was one of the polishes that drew me to the whole pre-order. I felt like I needed to have this deep, rich navy blue. And I was right. It's still my fave.
I really wish Color Club would slap a label on the polishes they sell in collections at Ross. I have no clue which one this is, but it's a light blue metallic color.
This is the MJ Plate I used for all three stamping manis, plus the ones I'll post tomorrow.
Here's a comparison of all three blues, side-by-side. Zipper, Rare Bear, and In The Navy.
And, the bottle shot: Zipper, Rare Bear, and In The Navy
