Turkey Coma - Colors by llarowe for November A Box, Indied

Tuesday, October 7, 2014


I am so excited to be sharing the Colors by llarowe contribution to the November A Box, Indied. Holographic polishes are my weakness. The theme for November's A Box, Indied is "A Cornucopia of Color." This polish is only available as a part of the November box.

Turkey Coma is a stunning deep rusty salmon shade. It wants to be red, but can't quite be as the salmon shade takes over. And I don't mean that in a negative way. It's a shade that is difficult to describe. It reminds me of a brick red... then I move my hand and it has a salmon sheen to it. It is truly mesmerizing.  The linear holographic effect is powerful and will definitely dance in the sunlight. I wish there were sunlight when I took the photos so I could show you the full impact of the holo. 

I have taken a lot of photos and some are only slightly different than others. But I wanted to show you the true range of this polish. The swatches are with two coats and a top coat.

The swatches below are showing a little too much red. But I wanted to show you the holographic sheen. There was no sun, so these are taken under bright lighting.

Glisten & Glow Shea Butter Hand Scrub review

Sunday, May 4, 2014



I have only recently tried Glisten & Glow products. I must say I am in love with them. The scents are alluring and oh-so-delicious. So I am excited to be able to share the Shea Butter Hand Scrub with you. It's called Wild Nights in Seaside Heights and is part of the June, A Box, Indied subscription box.

The June box’s theme is Destinations. The destination for Glisten & Glow is Wild Nights in Seaside Heights. This hand scrub brings scents of papaya, mango, a splash of coconut, with the mist of the Jersey Shore's ocean breeze.

 After opening the jar and inhaling the amazing and tropical scent, I dipped my fingers into the luscious, whipped hand scrub. It is as light as air. But don't let that fool you. It is a pretty powerful scrub.

I applied a quarter size amount of the scrub to the back of my hands and was amazed at how whipped, yet creamy it was.

But once I started to rub it and "scrub" the dead skin off of my hands I realized how intense the scrubbing beads (which is really pink sea salt and is environmentally safe) were. It's not too abrasive, but it let's you know it's working. I could feel those little granules working their magic. I massaged it into my hands for about three minutes.

Here's a close-up of the hand scrub. Look at how fluffy it is. You can see the granules here too.

After I used it and washed my hands, I loved the feel of my hands. They felt so soft and fresh. And they smelled pretty wonderful too!

Ingredients: shea butter, pink sea salt, sweet almond oil, apricot kernel oil, jojoba oil, vitamin e oil, tea tree botanical extract and premium grade fragrance oil.

Let's talk a little bit about her inspiration - The Jersey Shore.

The Jersey Shore is a favorite vacation destination of East Coasters. Millions make the annual pilgrimage to the various beaches on the shore each summer. By day, the Jersey Shore boasts famous beaches, boardwalks, funnel cakes, salt water taffy, pier filled amusements and everything in between.

By night, the Jersey Shore also dubbed “The Shore” takes on a whole new personality. The families have gone back to their motel or house rental and the 20 something’s come out to play! Seaside Heights is best known as the setting for MTV’s reality tv series – Jersey Shore Seaside Heights for the 20 something is the place to be for the summer!

Gather up your friends and rent a summer house. Don’t forget your favorite tunes and the hottest night club outfits. Beach bunnies by day - getting that perfect tan, playing volleyball, munching on boardwalk pizza and hot waffles + ice cream and taking a gamble at Frog Bog or the roller coasters on Casino Pier!

When the sun goes down the beach bunnies turn into club divas. Hair, make-up and outfits just right while getting ready for a night out at Club Karma, Jenks, Bamboo or Beachcomber! Getting Wild is not even the half of it. Tons of fruity drinks, the techno beats, fist pumps and dancing until your feet feel like they are falling off. Looking for Mr. Right or for maybe just tonight. All with the beautiful sand and surf in the background and in the distance the neons from the piers.


This will be available to order on May 26th as part of the A Box, Indied subscription box. Mark your calendars to visit Llarowe.com then. If you are already a subscriber, you are set. No need to rush. If you aren't - you will definitely want to get there at launch time.

Dollish Polish "Twist of Lime" is a vivid lime green polish with a subtle holo sheen. There did seem to be bits of pigment that had not dissolved. But I managed to work around them.
