Layered Mani: Sally Hansen – Get Down & Colors by Llarowe – Fall In Love With Chicago

Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is a gorgeous one! I have lots of photos today.

I started out with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Get Down. This is a plummy/berry/brownish creme. Great formula on this one! You will only need 1-2 coats. I just picked this one up at a store called .99 Only, so it’s probably an older color. Unfortunately I didn’t get any photos of this one on it’s own.

Then I added Colors by Llarowe Fall In Love With Chicago. This one is a LE from the September 2016 Indie Polish Convention (Polish Con) in Chicago. These conventions have been popping up more and more in the last year or so, and quite a few cities already have plans for one. I didn’t get to go to this convention, but Llarowe sold the left over polishes on her website after the show. 

This is a purple based multi chrome that shifts purple, red and gold. It also has copper flakes and a touch of holo. It has an excellent formula, staying right where you paint it with no running or pooling. I don’t think this has to be layered, but I had a perfect colored base for it, so I added just 1 smooth coat plus topcoat. Love this one!
