Colors by Llarowe ~ The Journey Begins

Colors by Llarowe ~ The Journey Begins
Raspberry red jelly base with glowing holo flake and shimmer

Today I wanted to make my nails really pretty. You know, the kind of manicure that you just don’t want to remove again. I grabbed The Journey Begins, which is from The Journey Begins collection from Autumn 2016. It’s a really beautiful red with some really amazing holo goodness added to it.

I used two coats for my mani and the drying time was really good. It’s the kind of polish that you don’t want on your cuticles because once it’s there it doesn’t want to let go again :D

This is two coats and a layer of topcoat in the sun.

I love this polish, it’s so gorgeous!

I stamped on it to give it a little bit of extra bling. I chose an “open” design from the stamping plate UR Beautiful-02 and I stamped with China Glaze’s “Harmony” from the Romantique collection from 2009. A great polish for stamping – and I’ve heard that lots of the polishes from that collection are great stampers.

Anyway, this is the final mani, including one more layer of topcoat:

One last shot, just because I can.
