I'm so pleased to announce that our ([personal profile] jlailin and I) Llarowe order finally came in (which also means I finally get to mail [personal profile] these_ordinary_days her birthday present--none of which is included here)!  Since I'm still wearing the Sally Hansen Salon Effects polish strips (day 5...and still only has some minor tip wear and some unnoticeable chips on some nail tips--awesome!), I decided to swatch these on paper.  I know the effect isn't exactly the same, but I really wanted to see these out of the bottle (flakies swatched over black polish really brings out their effect!).  Some of the colors are slightly off...andI was willing to bust out my digicam for this, but it decided to die...so crappy phone pics again it is.  I included essie's Shine ofthe Times to compare it to the new flake polishes.



 
The swatches done on the false nails are a mixture of all the flakies (except Shine of the Times).  Gorgeous, right?

Polishes Swatched:
  • Tony Moly - Earth: A grey-blue based jelly, a mixture of graphite and blue microglitter, and small pink iridescent hexglitter combine to create one of the most interesting glitter polishes I've ever seen.  Go here to see some awesome swatches of the Galaxy collection.
  • HITS - Lambada: "Clear base with copper, red, green golden yellow, and turquoise flakes" (Llarowe).
  • Ludurana - Trovao: "Clear jelly base with turquoise and green flakies" (Llarowe).
  • Ludurana - Chuva: "Yellow tinged jelly base with blue and copper flakies" (Llarowe).
  • essie - Shine of the Times: Clear jelly base with flakies that flash from orange, yellow, green, and purple/blue.
Gorgeous, right?  I can't wait to wear Earth!  I'm going to have a hard time deciding what to put on my nails next!

And this is all the stuff that came in today...four packages worth. O_o;;;

It isn't about "like," but about "love."

When I call you, drunk, and speak of my love for you, all you have to do is listen.
