The new Colors by Llarowe Holiday 2016 collection is already available through stockists, but the official pre-order on the Llarowe site in on December 1st. I can finally show you my swatches of all 8+1 shades, so here you go!
It's a shifty burgundy-red with tones of orange and pink, such a stunning and feminine shade, I love it!
It's nicely pigmented, it can cover in 1-2 coats.
It's a slightly warm toned medium-dark green "velvet holo". CbL have a couple of shades from this finish (like Rare Orchid os Rain) and I love it. It glows from within with a stunning golden fire <3 It dries matte, but I wear it with topcoat to bring out that inner glow.
It's strongly pigmented, you can get away with only 1 coat!
It's a sheer purple toned blue jelly base with blue-violet shimmer.
Sadly it's a bit sheer, I needed 3 normal-thick coats.
5 ROSE GOLD RINGS
It's a warm, peachy toned rosegold linear holographic with a golden glow.
3 normal coats + topcoat.
It's a sheer blue-grey base with silver holo microglitters and tiny blue flakes.
It's a true wintery icy polish, I love it!
You will need 2-3 coats and use generous layers of topcoat.
BELLE DE LOUVAIN
It's a sheer blackened plum jelly base with orange-red-pink-purple mutichrome shimmer, gold-orange-red-pink multicrome flakes and scattered holo shimmer.
You can use it on it's own (I used 3 thin coats on the pictures), or you can layer it over different colors.
It's a blue metallic leaning finish with turquoise shimmer and schattered holo shimmer.
2 easy coats with topcoat, nice formula!
It's a bright red (with pink undertones) jelly base with gold to pink irredescent flakies.
2-3 coats with topcoat.
HO HO HO IT'S SANTA LLAROWE
It's one of my favorite from the collection, but also I'm a bit sad about it, because it can't be purchased individually. It's a limited edition extra polish which you will get for free if you buy the whole collection. This option is only available at Llarow (on Dec. 1st pre-order at 12PM MST), Hypnotic Polish, Mei Mei Signatures and Rainbow Connection at the moment.
It's a sheer blue jelly topper with blue shimmer and green-teal-blue shifting flakes.
You can layer this over anything you like, I'm sure it will look awesome!
CbL Toasty Fires + 1 coat of Ho Ho Ho... my fav combination ever!
CbL Pine Boughs + 1 coat of Ho Ho Ho
1 coat of Ho Ho Ho over black
I tested the darker shades for staining (Toasty Fires, Pine Boughs, Ornamental, Caribbean Holiday), I wore them for 2 days without basecoat and non of them stained for me.
What do you think about these shades? I like how diverse the finish palette is, and there's so much unique color and layering options in it <3
As I mentioned, these are already available at stockists, and the pre-order on the Llarowe site will be on the 1st of December 12PM MST.
