SwatchTv Presents: Colors by Llarowe - Woman From Tokyo

Hey there listeners! I've been relishing in being phlegm and cough free this week and hard at work swatching on the regular. Today's feature is Colors by Llarowe - Woman from Tokyo. For those of you familiar with rock history you may know the band and discography from which this polish gets its namesake. And the answer is...Deep Purple, famous to guitar 101 classes everywhere for their simple but catchy riff on the single "Smoke on the Water". Anywho, if you haven't noticed already, this polish is described as a DEEP purple (heh heh) with strong linear holo pigment. I love little polish puns. Part of the reason I buy polish is for the name. I mean a polish by any other name would still shine as bright, but it's a nice touch I think. Look out below for more swatches and SwatchTv

SwatchTv Presents: Girly Bits - Well Isn't That Special

Hey there lovelies! Today's the day that GirlyBitsCosmetics.com reopens so I'm wearing a very special polish from the Fall Season Premier Collection. Today's feature is Well Isn't That Special. Does the name bring a bell? You might recall a certain Church Lady that kept us in stitches. Described as a light (sweater) purple with tightly scattered holographic pigment the kicked in this polish is tiny white microflakies. I was able to capture them slightly in the bottle in a few shade shots as well as a stray one or two on the nail. The flakies aren't the focus of the polish, they just add depth and complexity to the finish. That's part of what I'm beginning to seek out in holographic polishes now. I just adore brands that go above and beyond to reach where no holo has gone before and I can proudly say Girly Bits is the tops! Enjoy the swatches and SwatchTv below.

SwatchTv Presents: Colors by Llarowe - Oh Christmas Tree

Hey there polish elves! How's the new year treating you? A bit of out with the old and in with the new? Speaking of old, my Christmas tree is looking a little worse for wear these days. It evokes the image of A Charlie brown christmas which is charming I assure you, but decidedly flammable. So today's feature gives a proper sendoff to the Douglas Firs and Virginia Pines that brightened up our spirits this crazy time of year. I give you Colors by Llarowe - Oh Christmas Tree. Described as a deep deep forest green holographic, this polish shines in the evening light. Llarowe really has a handle on these dark deep holos. They're highly pigmented and yet still have a strong flame in every lighting situation you might come across. No Christmas lights needed. Enjoy some swatches below.
