It’s almost that time of the month again! No, not that one… The 1st of each month announces the release of a new Colors by Llarowe monthly polish and, this August, of a brand new collection too!
The CbL Late Summer collection is a set of 6 holos and shimmers and if you’ve already seen them then you definitely know that there are some serious must-haves!
One Crazy Ass Summer is a reddened hot pink base with pink and red shimmer and ultra micro iridescent glitter. I loved it in the bottle but I loved it even more on the nails. It’s so juicy that I dare you not to crave a popsicle while wearing it! I used 2 coats plus topcoat.
Mermaids In Maui is a light lilac base with scattered and linear holo and holo prism flake with various sizes of irridescent shifting glitters and aqua shimmer. Another beautiful scattered holo / multichrome glitter from CbL. I really wish it worked with my skin tone but alas lilacs rarely do. I used 3 thin coats plus topcoat.
Dive Right In is a bright blue crelly base with intense pink to gold to red shimmer and a scattering of holographic particles. This one was a complete surprise because I expected it to be another blue with pink shimmer but it’s really different somehow, I love it! I used 2 coats plus topcoat.
Hard To Imagine is an army green glowing holographic with blue, purple and pink shift. Ok this one is definitely different from previous CbL releases. It’s such a gorgeous green, and very pigmented too! I used 2 coats plus topcoat but the second was barely necessary.
I Skis With My Knees is a bright medium deep turquoise glowing holographic with green, purple and blue flame. This one, guys… is an absolute must-have! Everything is perfect about this polish, from application to depth to intensity. I used one single coat plus topcoat.
City Streets is a charcoal grey based glowing holographic with pink, plum and blue shift. I don’t think it’ll come as a surprise if I tell you that this one’s another favorite… Great formula and opacity, I also used one coat plus topcoat Topcoat changed the overall appearance of the base color so don’t be surprised if it darkens and becomes warmer, more intense with topcoat.
The Colors by Llarowe Late Summer collection is launching for preorder – along with the August POTM color It’s Your Destiny – on August 1st at 12:00pm MDT on llarowe.com.
Individual shades retail for $11 (international shipping available).
