Good morning dears! Doesn't October just seem to be flying long? Way too fast for me! I don't even have all my kids costumes yet. Eeep! I am going as a witch and with all the gorgeous polish coming out at least I know I'll have fabulous nails! Point in case, this group custom Colors by Llarowe called Amarena! I don't believe this polish is available any longer but you can get in on the current and future customs by joining the Indie Polish Lovers United group on Facebook! And if Facebook groups aren't your thing, there are loads of jaw-dropping, gorgeous shades available in the CbL shop!

Amarena is inspired by the small, dark Italian cherry of the same name. The amarena cherry is usually dripping in syrup and used on desserts. Yummeh. I think this color is stunning and really does capture the look of the sticky, sweet fruit. Amarena is a deep red/burgundy base full of gold shimmer and tiny flakes. The formula was fan-flipping-tastic! Leah Ann really makes fabulous, opaque polish and this is a prime example. Amarena could easily have been 1 coat, but I used 2 for optimal depth and color richness. I finished with a layer of topcoat.
