Colors by Llarowe I'll Be At The Lake POTM July 2016

Today I have the July POTM from Colors by Llarowe, I'll Be At The Lake. I guess this is kind of a theme, as yesterday's polish was also from July and here we are at the end of August. I'll Be At The Lake is described as a "bright blue metallic base with intense aqua shimmer and pink to purple shifting shimmer with a sprinkling of holo." This polish has an almost metallic or foil feel to it from the shimmer and does have flashes of pink/purple at certain angles. The holo is pretty low key, but adds another dimension of interest to this polish, so there's a lot going on here!

I didn't have any issues with this polish. This was a little thinner than what most CbL polishes tend to be, but was still easy to use and apply. I used three coats to get the finish I wanted. You can see just a hint of visible nail line on my ring finger, but I honestly don't think it was noticeable in real life.  

I had a hell of a time photographing this baby, and sadly I think it looks much better in person than in my photos, womp womp.

You can see how glowy it is! Despite my inability to capture this on camera, this polish was really stunning in real life. I hope you can appreciate some of its beauty despite my less than stellar photography attempts!
