Lit from Within: I got the blues - the Llarowe 3 blue holo blues

I got the blues - the Llarowe 3 blue holo blues

Hello, Fireflies!

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.
