Colors by Llarowe: Multichrome Madness Custom Quad

Standard

Current status: vacuuming the polish peelies out of my car door handle hole before I go get an oil change cuz I reallllllly don’t feel like getting caught being a weirdo today.  Seriously, can I ever be normal, like even just for a little bit?  I mean, at least put them in a baggie instead of out in public for all the judgy eyes to see.  Cuz even though when I look at my tiny peelie collection and my heart swells a little like I just witnessed my children being superstars (which obviously, KINDA DID; duh), I’m well aware most people wouldn’t understand.  Although as a child I had a friend whose father hung all his trucker caps along the ceiling on little hooks in just about every room in his house, so BASICALLY who is the weird collector now, then?

Still me.  Oh well.

Who’s in the mood for a Polish Emergency today?  Cuz multichromes are happening, but only for about seven more days CUZ I AM THE BEST BLOGGER THAT EVER LIVED.   In my defense, though, I’m pretty sure Polish Con lasted approximately 18 years, and surprisingly blogs don’t write themselves.  Ugh.  Let’s get to the polish then, before the things are no longer the things.  Take a look at these beauties:

• SUPER DUPER PRESS SAMPLES •

Yes to all of it, just so you know.

FOCUS, y’all! Miss Leah Ann from Colors by Llarowe is in the spotlight for September, and she has created a most awesome custom quad exclusively for the members of the Multichrome Madness group on Facebook. Time to check your jaw at the door, cuz picking it off the floor about 18,000 times is just too much effort on the weekend.

Here’s your colors:

SHIFTY CHARACTER 

DESCRIPTION: A blackened vampy purple based multichrome which shifts from deep purple to blue to magneta with blue to green shimmer

My swatch shows two coats plus top coat. Not pictured is the drooling maniac it belongs to. 

PRISM BREAK

DESCRIPTION: A bright aqua blue based multichrome which shifts from blue to green to lavender with shifting flakies, scattered holographic and prismatic holo flake

Another perfect two coater, but I could’ve gone hardcore Polish Mountain with this one. Do you see all that flakie business? DO YOU SEE?!  I swear, I’m trying to stay a lady but there’s a sweat bead mustache ruining damn near everything.

Quad favorite, by the way. Might as well be a little flakie Leonardo considering how much I love it. 

MAY THE SHIFT BE WITH YOU

DESCRIPTION: A magenta purple based multichrome which shifts from magenta to purple to red with hot pink to red to gold shimmer

My swatch shows a luscious two coats and four fingers of Jolly Rancher goodness. Cuz I swear I’d lick this one if the judgy eyes weren’t so lurk-y. SOCIETY. Boooooo. 

3HUNDRED AND SHIFTY5 DAYS

DESCRIPTION : A royal blue based multichrome which shifts from blue to green to purple with bright blue shimmer, scattered holographic and prismatic holo flake

An ocean of lovely. I want to swim in a big tub full of this one. COMPLETELY NORMAL BEHAVIOR, in case you’re curious. It’s so dang dreamy!  Plus flakies, which make everything better. Skinnier and prettier too, prolly, and lord knows I need a skosh of that. GIMME.

Oh, and two coats once again. Basically effortless. 

THE ROUND UP 

To order, you gotta be a member of the Multichrome Madness group on Facebook. Click here to join, then head over to the CbL store by clicking here. This quad is only available until September 30, so if you can’t go now – although WHY NOT?! is the actual question – be sure to set some alarms so you don’t miss out. Cuz who wants to wake up October 1st so very sad and quad-less? CERTAINLY NOT YOU.

Single bottles retail for $11 each, which is a pretty good deal considering how much we’d pay for magical happiness in a bottle.  Plus, it’s the Multichrome Madness group’s one-year anniversary, and what better way to say THANK YOU than buying a crap top of multichrome?  Approximately no better way, so go get your pretties, then.  Cuz you’re a smart, decisioning kinda lady that’s why.

Anonymous Lacquer: Multichrome Madness Group Custom Trio

Standard

Can someone eat a whole bag of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos right before bed and let me know how it turns out? Cuz I’m about 2.5 seconds away from a junk food extravaganza, but figure midnight is not the time for a science experiment.  However, if YOU try it first and somehow manage to NOT gain 27 pounds of salt retention while you sleep, then for real you guys:  there’s about to be a Grabby Fingers to the trillionth degree-type situation happening over here.  Also known as BEST DAY OF MY DADGUM LIFE.  Weeeeee!

Pretty sure I have a problem with potato chips.  I mean, clearly I do.  On Sunday, I bought a bag of dill pickle-flavored ones and it wasn’t even on accident.  Cuz NO ONE buys chips that taste like pickles, except for those who lose control of all rational behavior once the shopping cart gets one wobbly wheel length down the snack aisle.  Seriously, did I just walk into a room full of one thousand Leonardos all handing me a Starbucks?  Might as well have.  DREAM SCENARIO, is what I’m saying.

So while one hand’s been stuck in a bag of Doritos, then other one’s been swatching nail polish.  GUYS!  Multichromes are happening, and if there was ever a time to get real serious about spending some money, now would be it.  Look what I got:

• SUPER DUPER PRESS SAMPLES •

You done died.  You did.  How the rest of this blog is getting written I don’t even know.

It’s time for the August customs for the Multichrome Madness group on Facebook, y’all!  This month, Mildred with Anonymous Lacquer is in the spotlight, and she created such a lovely trio.  There’s a blue and a purple, and so far so good, but then she tossed in a glorious green one, and basically I’ll never be normal again.  Ugly Ecstasy Face in full effect, yo.  And my brain has officially stopped holding my mouth closed.  If anything sexy happens soon, we’d all be surprised.

And now, a quick rundown of the colors plus more shifty beauty than you can handle.  Brace yourselves.  There’s serious business up ahead.  Lessss go!

GAIA

DESCRIPTION:  A teal to blue to purple shifter

OPACITY:  Two delicious coats

Then I turned on the mood lights, and OMG, have you ever?!  NO. YOU. HAVE NOT.

HERA

DESCRIPTION:  A green/gold/blue/blurple shifter

OPACITY:  Two smooth coats

And here’s where all our jaws just fell right off our faces.  Ladylike composure?  NOT TODAY!

HARMONIA

DESCRIPTION:  A green/gold/purple shifter

OPACITY:  Two of the yummiest coats of your life

This is my favorite color combo, and I want it on all the surfaces.  Mine AND yours.  Completely normal behavior, in case you’re curious.

THE ROUND UP

WANT, WANT and NEED, that’s your new motto.  And good news, guys:  you’re buying alllll this!  Cuz where there is multichrome there is you, having a var var good day right now.  Hooray!

To order, you gotta be a member of the Multichrome Madness group on Facebook. Click here to join, then head over to the Anonymous Lacquer store by clicking here. This trio is only available until August 31, so if you can’t go now – although WHY NOT?! is the actual question – be sure to set some alarms so you don’t miss out. Cuz who wants to wake up September 1st so very sad and trio-less? CERTAINLY NOT YOU.

Single bottles retail for $12

Trio retails for $30

However, happiness is PRICELESS.

Stella Chroma: Multichrome Madness Group Custom Duo 

Standard

It’s the never ending quest to get caught up, PART ONE BILLION.  Ugh.  I swear, I see the drafts queue and about 7,345 partially written blogs staring back at me, but then I’m like FULL HOUSE IS ON! and so it’s down a rabbit-hole I go.  At some point, game notifications light up and it’s time to save some baby pandas from their little bubble cocoons – and that doesn’t just happen all by itself.    Feet up on the coffee table, wearing an enormous amount of robe, with one eye sleeping because CLEARLY:  responsibilities are for other people.

But now we’re in dire straights and I gotta get my focus face on.  Cuz guys, there’s a POLISH EMERGENCY in our midst.  A legit no joke crisis-a-mundo, topped with panic and anxiety and a full tube of hives cream.  In other words, pa y at te..n

Ack!  Chips Ahoy just appeared out of nowhere.  BRB.

• SUPER DUPER PRESS SAMPLES •

Someone just needs to keep the TV off and the snacks away.  Except don’t, or I will cut you.

Multichromes are happening, y’all!  Miss Pam from Stella Chroma is in the spotlight for July, and she has created a most awesome custom duo exclusively for the members of the Multichrome Madness group on Facebook.  Who’s ready to spend some money today?  Damn near all of us, that’s who.  Lesss go!

First up is Amortentia:

This beauty is a re-release of the very first Multichrome Madness exclusive back when Stella Chroma used to be Paint Box Polish.  She’s come back to life, guys, and for that we all say THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.  Now send Leonardo, kthxbai.  

For those that don’t already have the original Amortentia, it is a glorious pink/yellow/green/gold shifty stunner.  There could be a bit of a blue shift at super extreme angles, but that sounds like hand gymnastics to the trillionth degree, aka EXERCISE, aka LAME.  So enjoy my blue-less swatch photos, cuz BEST BLOGGER EVER, that’s why.

Gah!  So pretty.  The pink pulls you in, then the green makes you stay.  We are all just puddles of goo at this point.

The other half of the duo is Draught of Peace:

This one is a blue/purple/red/gold multichrome with the most amazing teal shift of your life!  It seriously just glows and glows and glows.  This one’s getting shoved up in stranger’s faces, I just know it.  Possibly in a slightly more stalker-y kind of way, as strangers don’t wanna Look at mah nails! quite like you’d expect.  I mean, I get it.  Cuz if anyone comes running up to me with their jazz hands on, one of them better be handing me a Starbucks.  OR ELSE.

Can we ever just look at this one time WITHOUT the hassle of the drool and the buckets and the Ugly Ecstasy Face and whatnot?  Cuz hubby is starting to feel sad about this pile of noodle legs he’s married to.  I mean, the traditional 5th anniversary gift is WOOD and I swear if I get cheated out of my popsicle stick Titanic and little toothpick Leonardo, someone’s getting a karate chop.  

The round up:

Yep.  You’re buying it.  A decision has been made.  Both polishes in this duo are delicious two-coat dreamboats, and I see no logical other way.  Okay, maybe you don’t like pretty things.  Or maybe you have no eyes.  I dunno.  But after that, nothing.  27 bottles, in the cart they go!

To order, you gotta be a member of the Multichrome Madness group on Facebook.  Click here to join, then head over to the Stella Chroma store by clicking here.  This duo is only available until July 31, so if you can’t go now – although WHY NOT?! is the actual question – be sure to set some alarms so you don’t miss out.  Cuz who wants to wake up August 1st so very sad and duo-less? CERTAINLY NOT YOU.

Single bottles retail for $13

Duo retails for $24

Happiness is PRICELESS.

Short and sweet tonight, although it still took 18 years to write.  Ugh.  One day I’ll get really good at this, I swear it.

Later, loves!

Ellagee: Multichrome Madness Group Custom Duo

Standard

I sat in someone’s pee today, so things are going quite well over here in case you’re curious.

Blah.

I don’t know about you, but once the momentum of sitting down kicks in, stopping mid-sit is nigh on impossible.  Two drops just hanging out on the edge of the toilet like NO BIG DEAL, you see it roughly 2 seconds too late, and suddenly WE. ARE. ON IT.  Right on top of it.  And all the cootie-slash-flesh eating bacteria scenarios are running through your brain like a dadgum freight train.  Quite honestly, I might die soon considering all the self-diagnosing I’ve been doing for the past 12 hours.  Oh, Anxiety, my evil friend.  Ugh.

In other words, happy weekend, y’all!  Despite that pee thing, there’s nonstop pajamas for the next 72 hours and LIFE IS GOOOOOOOD.  Weeeee!  Plus multichromes are happening, which is an instant great day about 97.74658% of the time.  Miss Laura from Ellagee has created a gorgeous custom duo for the Multichrome Madness group on Facebook, and you might as well just check your jaw at the door cuz picking it up off the floor 18,000 times is just too much effort for a Friday.

• SUPER DUPER PRESS SAMPLES •

See?!  For real, these colors are making me feel some type of way.  Mmmmmm, I swear if Leonardo happens next, it would only make sense.  Cuz why hold onto your last thread of ladylike composure when you know damn well the drool buckets are already lurking?  And normal behavior is a thing for other people.

OMG, what just happened?  Shut up, Brain.

First half of the duo is Fireside Wine:

This one has a glamorous magenta multichrome base with a copper/red/fuchsia/violet shift and bright pink sparkle.  IT IS GLORIOUS.  Two ultra smooth coats, and it’s a Noodle Leg Epidemic for all of us.

Another angle, which I swore looked completely different from the first picture, but in reality it’s most definitely different by at least 17 millimeters.  You know, VASTLY DIFFERENT is what I mean.

She’s a hot little mama!  I absolutely love how it looks on my nails.  Anytime a polish can make my fingers look less sad and sausage-y, I’m tossing 27 bottles in the shopping cart.  And we just don’t argue with that kind of logic.

Macros, for extra drool factor:

Gah!  So pretty.

The other half of the duo is Rhapsody in Blue:

This one has a luscious royal blue multichrome base with an emerald/blue/teal/purple shift and bright turquoise sparkle.  Seriously, we’re beyond ridiculous now.  It’s a mouth gaping, tongue lolling, puddle of goo EXTRAVAGANZA! and hubby just needs to look the other way for a little bit.  Cuz the Ugly Ecstasy Face causes divorce if I’m not mistaken.

Angle #2, a bit of lower light for more shifty goodness:

Two coats of dreamboat and an ocean of lovely.  Aaaaahhhh!  You’re about to spend some money, I just know it.

Let’s seal this deal:

DONE. Dead.  We are past the point of smelling salts, let’s just say.

The round up:

Soooooo, you’re buying both of these, just FYI.  Here’s what you need to do:

1. Join the Multichrome Madness group on Facebook to get access to secret shop link and coupon code.  Click herestat.  There’s a post in the group from Laura giving you all the info you need.   

2. If you’re unable to shop today – although WHY?! is the actual question – you have until June 30 to snag these beauties.  After that, they are gone forever.  I mean, it’s basically a POLISH EMERGENCY of the trillionth degree.

Cost for the duo is $25 or you can get single bottles for $13.  But reveling in all your good decisioning?  PRICELESS.

Top Shelf Lacquer: Multichrome Madness Custom Quad

Standard

Sounds I like:

1. The toilet shutting off after you’ve flushed.  Cuz after four years of just jiggling the handle, hubby has finally completed a DIY project.  I no longer have to inform guests of proper protocol of the sad state of affairs in our bathroom, or leave a note for the housekeeper that the toilet is even more broken than ever (due to failed DIY attempt #1).  NOPE.  All fixed.  Who’s a fancy lady now?  (ME, to be clear.)

2. Your cat’s purring up close after he accidentally mistakes your lap for something he loves.  This happened to me twice yesterday, and I posted a picture in yesterday’s blog as proof.  I’m not certain what he was doing cuddling up to me, but regardless, I am var var concerned about his brain.  He jumped off about 2.5 seconds later, cuz either he realized what he’d done or he sensed a hug was coming.  He no likee the hugs.

3. Silence.  Unless it’s after dark and I am alone.  Cuz that’s when the hauntings start.  I can sit in a house with no TV on, windows open and a nice breeze blowing through, joyously minding my own business.  But as soon as I hear a random noise from somewhere back there, well, basically it’s time to move.  I mean, I know there ain’t no one going in that laundry room for fun.  In other words:  GHOST.  There is no other logic for that one.

4. Bananas inside someone’s mouth. Oh wait, that’s just a punishment for bad people.  Cuz whatever kind of torture you’re into, listening to the smack of a banana being mooshed around with a tongue is enough to make me confess to anything.  That is not a typo.  Blech.

Now that I’ve grossed everyone out good and proper, it’s time for nail polish.  I have some of the most beautiful things you’ll ever see on the blog today.  Ready to hand over your wallet and look suuuuuuper unattractive in the process?  Get your smelling salts handy, then, and take a look at these: 

Told ya.  I hope you’ve locked yourself in a room in case of accidental divorce cuz there’s only so much sexy to go around while holding a drool bucket.  It’s best to keep that private just in case.

This is the Multichrome Madness group custom quad made special for the members of the Multichrome Madness Facebook group.  One of my favorite brands, Top Shelf Lacquer, is in the spotlight for April, and Amy has seriously blown me away with what she came up with.  Seriously, NAILED IT doesn’t even begin to describe this scenario.  You like holo and glitter and shifty little dreamboats?  Well, today is your lucky day.

First up is Tequila Mockingbird:

Do you hear angels? I hear angels.  How stinkin gorgeous is this?  (Very.)

This one is a blue to purple shifter with the most delicious square holo microglitters.  As a person with a touch of the OCD, squares soothe my soul like nothing else.  Cuz how you gonna line up round things all snug and Tetris-style?  As an expert organizer, I can tell you it’s nigh on impossible.  Even as a child, I knew.  I mean, I couldn’t kick a soccer ball to save my life, but if you needed your cart of groceries organized, I was a dadgum champion.  So, basically same thing, is what I mean.

Under the lamps, the purple comes out much better:

Macros of all the goodies:

Did you just die?  Cuz I sure did.

Next is Help Me Straighten Mai Tai:

In case you were unaware, Top Shelf Lacquers names their polishes after drinks and drink-related things.  It’s all very clever.  The polishes in this quad were named and voted on by members of the Multichrome Madness group, and lemme just say there are some smarty pants in that group.  Not me though cuz my brain was like WINE COOLER! and then had itself a little seat in the back.  Apparently sipping on one drink for three hours straight doesn’t bode well for the expertise.  Plus, I need 18 hours minimum to come up with genius things.  That is why blogging is hard.

So this one is a purple to red to bronze shifter with those same square holo microglitters.  You should see the situation in this room right now.  Ugly ecstasy face sounds about right.  Blah.

Under the lamps, it’s a much more brighter purple:

A square glitter EXTRAVAGANZA!:

Mercy, that’s pretty.

Here’s Schnapp To It:

Oh my goodness, will the drooling ever end?

NO.

This one is a super shifter that goes from green to blue to purple with the occasional flash of red. More glitters too cuz there’s literally no end to this.  All the glitters, all over my body.  Or just on my nails cuz SOCIETY with their judgy eyes.

I think this one is my favorite.  The colors in it are fabulous, and the shift on it is unreal.  The green, it got me.  It got me good, guys.

Under the lamps, purple says hi:

Now for macros:


I won’t lie; I kinda want to lick that one.  Cuz I’d be surprised if it didn’t taste just like a Jolly Rancher.  I mean, it’s probably more poison-y than expected, but who’s to know for sure?  Being normal is zero fun sometimes.  

Lastly, here’s Now Watch Me Sip…My Chardon-Nay Nay:

This one is another super shifter that goes between pink, orange, gold and green with more square holo microglitters.  Seriously, words have left me.  It’s moan-y throat noises from here on out and I have no idea how the rest of this blog is getting done.

Uhhhhhhhhhnnnnnnnnnn.  See?  Ugh.

Aside from all that though, it’s probably one of the best named polishes of all time.  You’re buying it for that reason.  But also cuz it’s pretty.

Under the lamps, the pink tone has its jazz hands on:

You’re about to spend some money, I can already tell.

The round up:

This quad is available now, but you gotta be a member of the Multichrome Madness Facebook fan group to get it.  Here’s your to-do list:

Click here to join the group, then head over to the Top Shelf Lacquer store and throw every last one of these in your cart.  Click here to shop.  DO IT.  I mean it.

Single bottles retail for $12 for full size or $8.50 for 8ml polish shots

Full set of 4 costs $46 for full size or $32 for polish shots

The quad is only available until April 30, so if you immediately thought POLISH EMERGENCY, you are correct.

While you’re in the clicking mood, join the Top Shelf Lacquer Facebook fan group as well.  Stay up to date on sales, specials, group customs, sneak peeks and general coolness.  Click here please, then toot your own horn cuz you make good decisions.

Also, check out all the Instagrams!  Top Shelf Lacquer can be found here, Multichrome Madness can be found here, your favorite blogger in all the land can be found here.

In addition, this set is available in two alternative finishes – a straight multichrome or a holo version.  These are not part of the group custom but will be available on the website if you’re not a fan a glitter.  Although WHY AREN’T YOU?! is the actual question. 

Welp, you’ve made it to the end so high fives for you then.  I know sometimes my blog posts are wordy and ridiculous, and make zero sense most of the time.  So I appreciate that you’ve taken time out of your day to come say hi and die over nail polish with me.  You’re the best and I lub you lots.

Later, loves!
