Hello Again! I wasn’t expecting to post the second part of this article so soon, but Llarowe announced today that they will be restocking these colors tomorrow. I don’t think it is the final restock, but it still made the most sense to show them now in case I inspire you to place an order tomorrow. Yep, enabler alert! Photo spam after the jump!
I have 3 more colors to show you from the Colors by Llarowe (CBL) Summer 2014 Collection. As I mentioned above, the restock is scheduled for tomorrow, July 18th, at 12 PM MDT and again at 7 PM MDT. It is typical that restocks for this brand are announced only a day in advance so you should sign up for the Newsletter on their website to ensure you get notifications. The polish prices range from $6 to $12, depending on the formula, and all 3 of these were $12.
First up is Chillin’ in Paradise, described by Llarowe as a light tiffany blue/aqua strong linear holo. It definitely more aqua to me and the holo is really strong and impressive in the right lighting. The formula was great and you are seeing 2 coats plus HK Girl topcoat in the photos. I saw this color being compared to Young Turks as a dupe, after I had ordered it of course. Now that I have both of them, my opinion is that they may be in the same family, but they are not dupes. Young Turks is a bright, bold blue and this color is more subdued. I support this conclusion by sharing the my Mom couldn’t wait to use Chillin’ in Paradise at her pedi appointment and Mom does not wear bold colors.
Meet When Doves Cry, a dove grey linear holo. I was very intrigued by this color when I saw the swatches. I have more than a few silver holos, but no grey. Not to mention that I’ve been shopping for a grey polish that doesn’t clash with my skin tone and make me look dead for a long time now. I love this color and my search is over! The formula is a little thick, but it’s not a one coater. It was workable, but some people may want to add a bit of good thinner.
And finally I share Aliens & Outlaws, a strong linear silver holo base with assorted holo micro glitters and tiny black hex. It looks at lot like Beautiful Disaster from Part 1 in this series, huh? Except this glitter is in a silver base, not clear, not that I can tell the difference. I am wearing a base of OPI Glitter Off, 2 easy coats of polish and HK Girl topcoat for the photos. The polish dries to a matte finish so you really need the topcoat to bring out all of the amazing glitter colors.
I am quite pleased with all of my choices from the Summer 2014 Collection and I couldn’t pick a favorite if I tried. When Doves Cry is so pretty that I will happily deal with the thicker formula. All of the others applied perfectly. Now for some Nail Art!
