I applied three coats of Colors by Llarowe Moonshine over Essence Hardening Nail Base. The formula of Moonshine has a certain thickness. On the bright side this reads: easy controllable application and no cuticle flooding. On the other side, Moonshine has a tendency to act gluey and drag when you go over the same area twice. The first coat goes on streaky but the second and third coat provided the level of opacity I was aiming for: even though still enough see-through to allow the glitter to shimmer and sparkle in all those various shades from silver to deep magenta. Since I was with nubs for this, I cannot report about any sightings of a VNL (visible nail line).
Final thoughts: Colors by Llarowe is such a classic yet unique and particular polish. It is versatile, festive, sparkly though understated enough to walk all the miles from work to an evening out. Not to mention the wear time - I had it for more than two days on my nails and no tip wear or chips near or far.
I ordered Colors by Llarowe Moonshine with well, Llarowe - usually those gems are sold out within days if not hours if not minutes but enlisting for Llarowe's newsletter will let you know when restocks and launches will take place.
To all of you I wish a wonderful Christmas Eve (that's when we celebrate Christmas here in Switzerland). I will get geared up for my dinner out now - I will spend the evening with many of my closest friends - all of us seated at one long table feasting on an outstanding gourmet menu…..
With love to all of you - Christine
