The Journey Collection is about Leah Ann Larowe’s personal journey.  On her website is a personal description for why each polish was named the way it was.  It gives you a new perspective into another person’s struggles. Please check them out and while you are there check out the other swatch photos as well!

“This is a very personal collection for me.  The last few years have been rough.  Loss of family members, health problems, personal problems and struggles that are too painful to talk about.  This collection came from my journey through the darkness of these past few years, the depression I suffered and ultimately the light I have seen at the end of the tunnel.  There are still dark days but with each day a new light appears.  The polishes that reresent this journey tell a story.  Each polish represents times of this period and the struggles or healing I was going through at the time.  You never know what someone is going through and a smile or kind word can sometimes mean the world to someone.” – Leah Ann

COLORS BY LLAROWE THE JOURNEY COLLECTION “BRIGHTER DAYS”

Colors by Llarowe CbL The Journey Collection Fall 2016 Brighter Days (1)

“Brighter Days” is a neon pink crelly base with intense copper to pink to gold shimmer.  This dries semi matte but I added a top coat.  And this is so much more neon in person.  The color gave my camera a hard time.  Shown is two coats plus top coat.

I cannot truly express my love for this collection!  Every polish is perfect and unique.  No application issues at all.  No staining from any of them!  It almost seems like the polishes, as a whole, flow into one another.  If that makes any sense at all. 🙂

And of course I had to do some nail art!

Colors by Llarowe CbL Journey Collection Fall 2016 striping tape nail art design

For this look I used “Out of the Darkness” (OOTD) as the base.  I then applied striping tape and filled in the blank spaces using “Family” and “Brighter Days.” And for some unknown reason my left hand refused to cooperate while I was trying to pose and get a good pic.  Cinderella needs some more training! 😉

Don’t forget….September 1st at 12pm MDT these will be available for pre-order!

Thanks for reading!
