Colors by Llarowe ~ Talk to the Hand

Colors by Llarowe ~ Talk to the Hand
Purple linear holo with purple and pink sparks

Talk to the Hand was Llarowe’s polish of the month for September 2015. I knew I needed to buy it when I saw the first swatches, this purple is such a me-polish.

The formula is good and so easy to work with. I used two coats for full opacity and the drying time between the coats was good. I painted my ring fingers white with El Corazón’s m&s-172 from the Matte & Shine Effect collection.

Let me show you the final result before I talk you through the rest of it :D The picture is taken with flash.

I stamped with black over the white and with white over the purple and filled in with alternate colours. I used NailNation 3000’s Black and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Whirlwind White for this step. Note that Talk to the Hand is a bleeder, so if you want a white stamp, you want to topcoat the base colour before you stamp. That way the white stamp remains white.

I added studs on the rest of the nails, and then my mani was done. This picture is taken in daylight, no direct sun. Isn’t it just gorgeous!?

Here are the two pretties I used.

Wow, I just love Talk to the Hand. The colour is awesome, the rainbows are so pretty and it’s just a good quality polish. I am glad I snatched it while I could!
