Hello Nailistas! Today the newest collection from Colors by Llarowe goes up for pre-order. I have photos and live swatches of all 6 shades from the Valentines Collection. These aren’t your traditional V-day colors, they’re dark and vampy with a variety of unique finishes and that same great formula I’ve come to expect from CbL.
You Sexy Thing is a sultry plum purple with satiny pink and blue shimmer. Easy smooth application, shown here is 2 coats.
Hearts on Fire is a gorgeous deep burgundy red holo with copper shimmer. This one really glows! She’s *almost* a one coater- very opaque, perfect buttery smooth application. I used 2 coats for this swatch.
Let’s Get Freaky is a blurple jelly with a fine pink satin shimmer. A bit thinner, this one took 3 coats for full coverage. It does lean more purple-y in real life, my camera wanted to pick up the blues too much.
That Little Green Monster is an amazing evergreen super holo with golden shimmer. So much holo! Again this one was almost a one coater, 2 perfect coats shown here.
Who Needs Love? is my personal favorite of the bunch. A dark berry super holo with light pink shimmer. Again the formula was wonderful. Shown here is 2 easy coats.
It’s A Gift is really unique. It features a blackened purple jelly base and is filled with color shifting multichrome glitter and shimmer. In the bottle the glitters turn every color of the rainbow (check out this Insta pic to see what I mean). On the nail it was harder to see the shift, they stayed more in the red green gold spectrum. I used 3 thin coats for full coverage.
Aren’t they pretty! As much as I love pinks and reds it is super fun to see a sort of anti-valentines collex with dark purple and black. As I said I LOVE Who Needs Love. Let’s Get Freaky and Hearts on Fire are pretty amaze too. Which is your favorite?? Will you be grabbing any in today’s pre-sale?
The CbL Valentines 2017 Collection will be available for Pre-Order for 24hrs starting TODAY! From Feb 1st at 12 noon MST thru Feb 2nd at 12 noon MST at www.llarowe.com.
