Indie Nail Polish Haulage from Harlow & Co (November 2016)

Haulage! Harlow & Co (November 2016)

Well, I had a rough night so I have no swatch post written up for today.

I stupidly stayed up until 3 doing (mostly) some work and then little Olive, who had been so nicely sleeping through the night for a month, decided she would wake up at 4 in the morning and stay like that for an hour or so, instead of sleeping through to 7 or 8 like she usually does. Of course, both she and Peanut woke up at 7ish so I basically got an hour of sleep, and then about an hour and a half after that.

So here’s a haulage post! ‘Cause they’re pretty easy to do, ha!

I actually ordered this back in November but didn’t get around to even opening it until a week ago. (I know that’s a bad idea, just in case the wrong items were shipped. It’s a very bad habit I have.) It’s my first order from Canadian online nail polish retailer Harlow & Co. They were running a Black Friday sale, so I got my first two Colors by Llarowe and three more A Englands.

(By the way, Harlow & Co’s website doesn’t load when you type in “” without the “www.” I’ve emailed them about this—it’s a pretty quick fix—but they haven’t bothered. I never type in “www”, so this annoys me. Also I think it’s weird that they’re clearly a for-profit business with a .org domain. I guess someone’s squatting on

Here are my goodies!

I admit I don’t check out indie brands as much as I’d like to. Most of my indie polishes are by A England, and they’re just stellar, so you’d think I’d diversify! I think my hesitation is partly because I’m just not that into glitter, and a lot of them seem like they’re glitters.

Who makes your favorite indie nail polishes?

  1. Aww sorry to hear about your lack of sleep! Remember, it’s only temporary! hope you get good quality sleep for the weekend!

    I only placed an order from Harlow recently (in my post tomorrow) and now that I know I have easy access to all these indie brands… TROUBLE! 😮 I’m with you – I’m more into shimmers / holos but not so much on the crazy glitters. I still haven’t tried Colors by Llarowe but it’s only a matter of time. I’d love to hear how you get on with them. And, the a england “Her Rose Adagio” is on my wish list! Such a Stashy shade…

  2. My favorite indie brand is Cadillacquer, but they are spendy and do have lots of glitters. The color combinations are so weird and unique though, I feel like they don’t blend in with a lot of other indies. Same with a-england, their polishes are so stellar so why would you want to try anything else? :]

  3. I absolutely love A England, they always seem to put out such high quality polishes! I really love KBShimmer, Pretty Serious, Cirque (if it counts as indie, I’m not sure, haha!) and piCture pOlish for other indies. All four brands have made polishes I really love and have had zero issues with.
    I love Harlow & Co. for their access to indies because otherwise I would definitely be missing out (my wallet might be a bit happier though…)
