I applied two coats of Colors by Llarowe Julia Roberts 1967 over my regular Base Coat and finished it with Glisten&Glow HK Girl. Now the polish fairies were not well disposed towards me yesterday. I had one big fight with Julia Roberts 1967. The formula of my bottle is thick and not nicely spreading. I should once remember posting a picture of a really bad first coat here - not so much as to shy off anyone at the gruesome view but as reassuring measurement that nearly ANY polish can be built up to a lovely and beautiful finish. But back to matters at hand: After having painted about four nails I finally "understood" that polish. Julia Roberts 1967 wants to be applied in medium thick coats. And don't, just absolutely don't go over the same area twice. It will not look patchy but the brush literally picks up again ALL the polish you just applied - ewww!! It dries though super quick to a level of dry-to-the-touch but beware - it remains dentable for a good hour or so. What saved the mani overall? The immaculate, one and only Glisten&Glow HK Girl. It covered and then evened out not one but two of my dents. The remaining part of my hassle was totally my fault - I ended up having to do two of my nails again from scratch, drowned a nailbed completely in polish - you get the idea, right?
Final thoughts: Despite the hassle I had for getting Colors by Llarowe Julia Roberts 1967 onto my nails I love it - it is exactly my favorite shade of Pistachio green (imagine some ooh-ing, gushing and OMGs). Now I have to yet SEE the shimmer - I think it is more to spruce up depth and overall look of this beauty. So if you get it (which you actually should if you are into Indies) work with medium thick coats, don't go over the same area twice and don't head for grossary shopping right after application. Then you will be fine - no, you actually will be DELIGHTED!!!
Notes about Nell: those of you who follow me also on Instagram (@mausishuffle) might have seen my earlier posting there about Nell falling from the window sill on first floor down to ground at 2 a.m. last night. I was frankly mere inches from a heart stop and ran down in my nighties and slippers into a creepy storm to look for him. Luckily he was fine, dashing past me into the house at the speed of a canon ball. He is playful, hungry and currently haunting "the hood" in a mild summer night - I am relieved beyond words that the furball of my eye is apparently fine. I trust that any serious injury would have shown by now. Just look at him:
very possessive of this fly swatter ;-P
Colors by Llarowe polishes are available with Llarowe and with Harlow & Co.
