Colorado Lacquerista Meet-up, Shopping Guide & piCture pOlish Giveaway



As you may know my family and I recently moved to Colorado (all the way from Virginia). I was excited to move as Colorado has so many awesome indie makers  based here and not to mention the Llarowe flagship store is just 40 minutes away! Through the beauty of social media I was welcomed into a state based group on Facebook of polish lovers and polish makers. Since I have never really known anyone (in person) with the same interests as me this excited me greatly! There must be something in the water here to have so many talented people all in one state!

We all recently had a get together over lunch in Denver and upon arrival the talking and networking just began. It was such an easy conversation, so fun. No one glazed over when I talked about differences in polishes. To mark the occasion the makers in our group all brought some of their stock as well as extras for everyone! Seriously it was better then Christmas!

Look at all that gorgeous Love, Angeline polish!
Natosha the owner/creator of Love, Angeline created a special mystery holo just for the occasion! This amazing polish is a deep navy linear holo with micro glitter and micro flakies. Isn't it gorgeous - PS it even stamps!


We were also treated to a package of the new Love, Angeline mani crumbles! I chose the blood orange and peppermint scent. Its so different and so lovely. These are just like a mani bomb, add to warm water and soak your hands and/or feet for moisturized perfection!

Lou the owner/creator of Lou it Yourself brought everyone a Colorado themed mani bomb and special clean up brush in addition to her stock of bath bombs, mani bombs, polishes and nail vinyls. I love bath and body products, probably even more then I love polish. I really enjoyed smelling through all of Lou's bath bombs, mani bombs and her "No More Uglicles" balm. I'm really excited to use everything I picked up from her and get to know her even better! She makes lots of really cool vinyls and even does custom vinyls for your helmer! I will be reporting back about the bath bombs, mani bombs and cuticle balm that I picked up from her. I'm loving the balm in the lime & green tea scent!

 I also got to pick up some amazing polish remover from Proper Polish. Acetone can be so harsh on your nails and cuticles, why not use a proper polish remover? This gentle blend combines acetone with essential oils to moisturize while removing polish! Available in 3 scents currently, I got Brown Sugar, with more coming soon!

Proper Polish also makes cuticle oils, bath bombs and of course polish! More to come on all that as well.

Post lunch, more shopping and talking!
 After lunch we all drove up to the Llarowe flagship store to shop, play and talk. Since Leah Ann needed to make a stop before we headed to the store she gave me the key to open the store. I think my heart may have stopped! I had the key to polish paradise! I felt like the Cheshire cat opening the door to polish paradise.

Once inside we all continued talking, more folks joined the party and the fun really started. As a treat we were able to preshop the Llarowe sale! Bins of $1.00, $3.00 and $5.00 polishes?! Like I said better then Christmas! As the icing on the cake we were able to buy from the new CbL Overboard Collection which doesn't launch until June. In addition Leah Ann graciously treated us all to piCture pOlish leggings which came with a special polish called Super Styling.

Look at all that polish for super sale!!
Happy Shoppers!


We also met Brittany from UberChic Beauty. I'm sure you have seen her amazing stamping plates on the market and in nail art on Instagram. We got to preview some plates from an upcoming collection but I'm sworn to secrecy on that!

 It was such a great day, we all can't wait to do it again. When you move thousands of miles away its such a wonderful feeling to be welcomed by new friends. That is what I love about the indie polish, indie bath community, its really that - a community.  Be sure to shop from these Colorado based makers! You won't be disappointed!

  • Love, Angeline - Polish, Nail Vinyl Stencils (Stuck on Love Nail Shields), and hand/body care coming soon! http://loveangeline.com

As a special thank you I'm giving away a pair of these awesome piCture pOlish leggings (size M, ps they are super stretchy) and a bottle of piCture pOlish 'Super Styling'. This is a US based giveaway only. Sorry my international friends! Enter below! Winner will be drawn June 12th!
