I was a little bit naughty a fee weeks ago and treated myself to a couple of the gorgeous looking Color By Llarowe polishes. These are a line developed and made by Llarowe herself, not only is she a seller of amazing polishes from around the world, she is also now a polish maker! There are a number of holographic polishes and cremes in the range, which really does have something for everyone.
This one is Dirty Diana, part of the Michael Jackson tribute collection. Let’s see some pictures!
Firstly, can I just say the formula on this is stunning. It almost a one coater, but I did two over a base coat of Glisten & Glow Stuck on Blu! (UK link now ladies!). Its like butter, smooth, self leveling and the most stunning colour. And wow, will you look at that holo effect in the image using flash. In person the holo effect is quite strong. As formula does wear well, but you can use top coat, certain ones do not dull the holo effect. I topped mine with Glisten & Glow HK Girl (UK link again!) and it didn’t dull it. I know some people feel it does, so it really is a personal preference.
The bottle is square and the brush is firm but flexible. Its a good size, you get 15ml and its great that all the bottles match and line up neatly.
Colors by Llarowe are available directly from the Llarowe website, they cost between $6 and $12 depending on finish, and there is international shipping!! They are looking into suppliers in other countries to ensure deliveries and keep postage costs down, so do keep an eye on their website and/or Facebook page. There are occasional pre-sales, so you order in advance and they get sent to you when you order is fulfilled, or if they are in stock, you can buy them right away. Glisten & Glow Stuck on Blu! Base Coat and HK Girl Top Coat are now available to those of us in the UK via Rainbow Connection UK.
