I'm back today with the Winter 2015 collection from Colors by Llarowe. I have all 12 shades to show you and it's an explosion of holographic, shimmery festiveness. You're definitely going to need a few of these!
Colors by Llarowe is the nail polish line by indie stockist Llarowe, who have recently moved away from stocking other brands to focus on their own line. I showed you the Fall 2015 collection a few weeks ago and I'm so happy to have the Winter collection to show you!
Berries In The Snow is a deep berry wine strong linear holo. This is one of my favourites, it's so intense and richly pigmented (use a base coat!) it's just beautiful. 2 coats plus top coat
Breathless is a deep, almost blackened magenta with red to gold shimmer. The formula on this leans towards jelly giving it a beautiful depth. 2 coats plus top coat
Santa Baby is a perfect festive red strong linear holo. This one looks like it's on fire under certain light! 2 coats plus top coat
If You Dare is a strong fuchsia linear holo with violet flame. So intense and beautiful, again richly pigmented so don't forget your base coat. 2 coats plus top coat
Peacock Parade is a blue toned teal linear holo with a softer effect. The colour is so deep and intense, I can never get enough of teal shades. I found the formula to be a tiny bit thick so I might add a bit of thinner in future. 2 coats plus top coat
Jewel of Denial is (to my eyes) again a teal linear holo but with aqua green undertones rather than the blue of Peacock Parade. 2 coats plus top coat
Ice Ice Baby is a sky blue strong linear holo. Ever so slightly more sheer than the others so I added a third coat for full intensity.
Tree of Lights is a christmas green scattered holo with multi-sized holo micro glitter. My swatch really doesn't do this justice, it's just gorgeous. The micro glitter makes it look like it's got loads of tiny little lights in it! 2 coats plus top coat
Plum Perfect is a strong purple linear holo with blue flame. I love this particular shade of purple and the blue flame is super strong. 2 coats plus top coat
'Shroom With a View is a dark taupe scattered holo with lighter taupe flame. This has a glowy effect to it and the light taupe flame is super strong. 2 coats plus top coat
Hot Buttered Rum (I just love that name) is a sandy gold scattered glow holo with golden flame. I like this much more than I expected to, it's subtle but stand out! 2 coats plus top coat
Lastly, Fairy Dust is a white-grey scattered jelly holo with multi-sized holo shimmer and glitter. It's so ridiculously pretty, the sparkles are endless. This could be layered or used alone in 3 coats (as shown)
That was a BIG collection to swatch! There are some beautiful, perfect Winter polishes in this collection and they're all so intense and rich in pigment. Which is your favourite? Let me know!
