Colors by Llarowe: Spring 2014 - HOLOS!

*This product is Cruelty Free 

Right now I have the last 4 new Spring holos in The Holos Collection - lots of pics so pull up a chair!

Continued after the jump...

So I'm going to start with the one that nearly broke me. The one that is just impossible to capture on camera.

The Mighty Red Baron

This one is simultaneously the most beautiful and the most frustrating polish EVER! It's a gorgeous deep, cool-toned red puddle of glowing goodness. And it's linear! BUT...while it has a strong arc, it's not a rainbow arc, it's a glowy arc. The glass flecks that sit deep within the polish glow like mad. I think it made my camera cross-eyed. So I'll just show you what I got with the caveat that it's more stunning in person. It's like if the best red linear holo had a baby with China Glaze Ruby Pumps...on steroids.

THIS is what it kept doing to my camera...

But I kept trying...

Here you can see the linear arc a bit - but it's stronger in real life...


Concrete Jungle is is a lovely blue-based grey with a loose linear holo. Great formula and application. One coat if you do medium coats. I used two coats and no top coat for the photos. I adore this one and it battled it out with Lucy, I'm Home for the #1 position in my favorites of the entire collection.


House of Blues is a bright blurple (blue purple) strong linear holo. Same formula as the other holos - perfectly smooth. One-coater if you use a medium coat. I used two light coats and no top coat for the photos.


Deanna, It's Blue! is a royal blue strong linear  holographic polish with a light blue/teal flash. Same great formula as the other holos - can be a one-coater if you use a medium coat. As with the rest, I've used two light coats and no top coat for the photos. No issues at all!


Well, that concludes the new holos in the Spring Frenzy Collection!
