I have the new Krispy Kreme Dreams collection from Colors by Llarowe to show you today. This whole collection screams Spring, but it's not the official Spring collection yet.
This collection was inspired by Leah Ann's (creator of CbL) crazy and vivid dreams which were caused by eating Krispy Kreme donuts before bed :) More about the colors and their inspirations on llarowe.com! Btw. the color descriptions on the Llarowe site are really good!
These polishes have awesome formula (you can see a live swatch HERE) and the colors are beautiful! I tested each polish for staining on 1-1 nail for 1 day, without basecoat, you can read the results at every shades!
It's a bright, medium blue holo (strong to medium holo effect) with smaller green UCC flakies. I really like this one, but I wish there will be a little bit more "tiny spacemen" in it :D
You see 2 easy coats + topcoat on the pictures. It stained my nails the tiniest bit, but I didn't used basecoat, so I think with a basecoat there will be no staining. You will have to be careful at removal though, because it can stain the skin a little bit.
Ah, this one is one of my favorites! So bright, so fun! It's an almost neon green banana color, but it can be more yellow depending the lights. It has a medium holo effect.
This is 2 easy coats (again, watch my live swatch about this on my IG, it's unbelievable how good the quality is!) + topcoat. This dries matte! It didn't stained at all!
I's a pink toned cherry red with an insanely intense linear holo! The pictures don't do it justice!
This one can be opaque in 1 normal coat, but I used 2 here. It stained a tiny bit my nails (but again, I think if I would've been used a basecoat it would've not stained), and also you have to be careful at removal!
This one is a fun, bright violet. It has the same "glowing holo" as Rare Orchid and Rain have, I love it! This is 2 easy coats with topcoat. It dries matte. It didn't stained on me!
This one is hard to describe. It has a dark, but quite sheer plum/purple jelly base. It has pink shimmer, and slightly bigger gold-to-pink micro shimmerflakies in it. It looks totally different when the light hits it than in the shades. In the shade there are now glowwing effect, but you can see the microflakies. It has a little bit of scattered holo in it too.
This will need 3 coats. It didn't stained on me!
This is another favorite of mine. It's a bright green/mint toned turquoise. So it has definitely more green than blue in it, but it's quite hard to describe and photograph. But it's beautiful, belive me! Again, this one has that inner glow kind of holo too (same as Rare Orchid and Rain from the previous fall collection).
2 coats + topcoat, dries matte, but it didn't stained.
Gosh, how beautiful are these! It's really hard to pick a favorite, because I like all of them so much! I didn't realised how much my soul needed these fun colors.
These are already available at Nailland and Hypnotic Polish, but there will be a pre order at llarowe.com tomorrow (Feb20. 12PM-8PM MST).
