Instagram 31 Day Nail Challenge: Day 5 "Blue" - Colors by Llarowe "Zipper"

A while back I purchased this Colors by Llarowe polish because I had heard from Radha that it was really similar to an Enchanted Polish called Ballerina Sprinkles. I managed to snag it during one of the Llarowe restocks about a month ago, and it came just in time for my (failed) Instagram 31 Day Nail Challenge. 
For my "Blue" day I decided to put this one on and absolutely loved it :D Zipper, named after her cutie pie pup, is a baby blue creme with a really delicate linear holo running through it. The blue is similar to OPI's What's With The Cattitude?, possibly slightly less milky. It's got a slightly thicker formula and goes on a little patchy on the first coat but evens out really nicely on the second coat. You definitely don't need more than 2 coats with this polish.
I used OPI's Nail Envy as a base and Seche Vite as a top coat. I can't tell you about the wear of the product because I really only had it on for a day but It looked great for the day that I had it on lol. 
This is $12 on Llarowe's store, which you can get to here. Make sure you follow Llarowe's Twitter and "like" her on Facebook to get updates on restocks. This polish, "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" and the other CBL Polish I have, which I'll have up for you guys soon, definitely make me want to expand her line more :)
