Colors By Llarowe Fall 2015 Swatches & Review

Hello friends. I'd like to start this post off by saying thank you, so very much, for all of your comments, messages, and sentiments following my previous blog post. I am far from over the loss of my precious Bubs, but I am getting there, slowly. I have been keeping myself busy, the result of which you can see here today - I have swatches of the Fall 2015 Collection from Colors By Llarowe to show you!

All the relevant info will be at the end of the post, so shall we take a look?

All swatches are shown with two coats of polish, with base and top coats, and all formulas are pretty much perfect - some of them are so pigmented they are easily one coaters, but I always apply two for consistency.

"Aubergine Dreams"

"Aubergine Dreams": Deep aubergine intense linear holo with pink and purple flash

"Lake Of The Pines"

"Lake Of The Pines": Deep pine green with blue undertones soft linear holo. The holo appears crazy strong in the bottle, but is far more subtle on the nail.

"Last Harvest"

"Last Harvest": Medium grass green intense linear holo

"Memories Of You"

"Memories Of You": Silver taupe scattered holo with lavender undertone and red shifting shimmer with glowing finish

"Mocha Grande"

"Mocha Grande": Deep chocolate brown intense linear holo with copper, gold and red shimmer


"Rain": Bright sea blue scattered holo with glowing finish

"Rare Orchid"

"Rare Orchid": Medium orchid pink scattered holo with subtle shimmer with glowing finish. This one has more of a purple undertone to it in reality, but my camera refused to pick that up.

"She's My Cherry Pie"

"She's My Cherry Pie": Deep plum brown intense linear holo with intense shimmer and pink to red flash

"The Fallen"

"The Fallen": Deep copper red jelly base with scattered holo, shifting flake and intense copper to red shimmer. This is the sheerest polish in the collection, two coats were sufficient for me but you may wish to apply three if necessary.

"Wine & Roses"

"Wine & Roses": Deep wine red intense linear holo


What are your thoughts on this collection? Do you have a favourite? Do you even like autumn? It's my favourite season, so these are all winners for me, not least because of the wonderfully evocative names!

This collection will launch for pre-orders on the Llarowe website on Tuesday 15th September (12:00pm - 8:00pm MDT), but is available already on Rainbow Connection if you live in the UK (I don't know if all shades are in stock currently though).

Thanks for reading, and come back again soon!
