Colors by Llarowe Smoke Gets in Your Eyes LE

Back to the grindstone after a three-day weekend; it was Family Day here. We spent our morning at Ikea which was a mad-house! Apparently, Family Day is their busiest day of the year - even more so than Boxing Day! Hope you had a great Family Day/Louis Riel Day/President's Day/day off!

Today I have a gorgeous limited edition polish to show you. I have mixed feelings on these posts. On the one hand, why show it to you if it's not currently available? However, I am trying to share my stash and this one is too gorgeous to skip. Plus, there's always the after-sale market - blog sales, Pinterest boards, Storenvy stalking. ;) Either way, I hope you enjoy the pictures. :)

Colors by Llarowe Smoke Gets in Your Eyes is a brown leaning taupe with gorgeous copper shimmer. This applied smoothly and the formula wasn't as thick as some of my others CbLs. The shimmer is stunning and there's is a colour shifting element as well - I just couldn't capture it. To get a feel for the shifty nature of this beauty, check out Pointless Cafe.

Shown here is one coat of CND Stickey base coat, three coats of Smoke Gets in Your Eyes and one coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri.

Pretty, right? What are your feelings on the indie polish after-sale market? Personally, I try to pay as close to retail as possible with a few exceptions. Will you be looking for Smoke Gets In Your Eyes now?
