Colors by Llarowe: Spring Frenzy 2014 - The Shimmers

*This product is Cruelty Free 

Tonight I have some of the polishes I showed you on my Facebook Page today of the Colors by Llarowe Spring Frenzy that launched for pre-order today. Just putting them here for future reference...and to give you more details about formula, application, etc.

The Great Pretender, Will You Still Love Me Tealmorrow,
Connie, You Saucy Minx and Purple Rain (2014 version)

 Continued after the jump...

Starting with my favorite...The Great Pretender. This one is described by the maker as "my version of the elusive Unicorn Pee." By that, she means, of course, Clarins 230, which was long ago discontinued and is about as easy to find as "unicorn pee." It's a color-shifting polish like Clarins 230 but it opaque in 2 coats. Shown here with 2 coats and no top coat.


Will You Still Love Me Tealmorrow is a deep blue crelly with teal shimmer. LOTS of teal shimmer! Two coats and one coat of top coat for the photos.


Connie, You Saucy Minx is a purple crelly with super intense magenta/fuchsia shimmer. This is one of my favorites. Perfect formula. Two coats and no top coat.

And finally, Purple Rain. This is the new version - sorry I don't have the older version to compare. This one is opaque in 2 coats but it's rather thick, so you can see the thickness of the polish on my nails. This one was pretty, but except for Tweety Bird which hated my skin tone, this is probably the only other one I could have passed on...only because of the formula and the others were just so perfect by comparison. It's extremely glowy though and almost looks like velvet. A shiny smooth velvet LOL!


I've already shown you the other polish in The Shimmers part of the collection: Little Boy Blue and it, along with The Great Pretender were my favorites of The Shimmers.

These polishes, as with all of the Spring Collection 2014 polishes, were available for pre-order at the Friday, February 28, 2014 restock...keep checking FB for information on when these will be available again.
