Llarowe held the grand opening of the Llarowe store today in Fort Lupton, Colo., and I had the opportunity to attend this gala event.
Upon arriving, I opened the door and I was in awe. I was completely star-struck. Just imagine all those bottles of happiness in one location - it's enough to leave you speechless. I wandered around with my order list and was overwhelmed with all the choices. I wanted to just make it easy and buy one of everything, but that just wasn't possible. There are photos of the event through out this post. But the polishes shown are not all of the polishes available. There are many more brands available.
The store was packed with customers oohing and ahhing over the displays and polishes. In all the hectic activity, Llarowe employees managed to keep up with the line and filled orders with a smile on their face.
One special guest at the opening was Jess Beltran. Jess was the grand prize winner in the Llarowe giveaway and won a trip to the grand opening for her and her husband. Jess traveled from New Jersey and said she was still in shock at being chosen as the grand prize winner. Jess said she was ecstatic at Leah Ann's generousity.
Jess spent the day scouring the displays and enjoying the winning feeling. Her smile was infectious and it was delightful to watch her throughout the day. Her husband also seemed to enjoy himself, but drew the line at having his nails painted by one of the indie makers. We definitely tried to convince him though. Congrats Jess!
Indie makers were there to support their particular brand of polish. These ladies are amazing. They were a delight to meet and I enjoyed talking to each of them. I loved watching them do their nail magic on each other and customers. Seeing the faces behind my favorite brands was fascinating.

Shannon from Pahlish also graced the opening. Pahlish creates polishes that are full of depth and vitality.
Linda from Nail Vinyls also attended. Her ingenious nail vinyls have definitely delighted me and made creating amazing nail art much easier.
Lauri from Crows Toes was there also. Her amazing polishes are deep and mesmerizing. If you like multichromes, then you will love her polishes. Of course she does much more than multichromes though.
Missi from Different Dimension also attended. Her vast range of shades and finishes is sure to have something for everyone. Her holos are definitely my favorites of her creations.
Jill from Glisten and Glow was also there. Her nail and cuticle balms are simply a must have for anyone. Her top coat, HK Girl, is just about the only one I use anymore. It dries at a remarkable speed and doesn't smear nail art.
Pam from Girly Bits was also there. Her polishes are simply stunning and full of depth and dimension.
And of course, Leah Ann from Llarowe was there. Her stunning Colors by Llarowe polishes are packed with holo and special effects.
The store is decorated in an eclectic style. The displays are pleasing to the eye and are the perfect setting for all of those amazing polishes.
If you are in the area, or can make the trip, you definitely need to visit the Llarowe store. It's located at 127 S. Denver Ave. Ft. Lupton, Colo. I know I will be making the trip there whenever I can.
