Colors by Llarowe Fall 2014 Collection Swatches & Review

Thursday, October 23, 2014
Hello everyone!

I've got swatches of eight of the new Colors by Llarowe Fall 2014 Collection to share with you today.  The restocks are today, at 12:00pm MDT and again at 7:00pm, so make sure you are ready if you want any of these gorgeous polishes!

Colors by Llarowe Fall 2014 Collection

Seasons of Change is a beautiful dusty teal holo with a bunch of pink flake shimmer and a golden flash.  This is one of my favorites, for sure!  The formula was so smooth, opaque in two coats, and photographed without top coat.

Sandy We Ain't In Kansas Anymore is a vivid blue holo with a turquoise duochrome and purple shimmer (which sadly, you can't see in my photo).  I love, love this one as well.  It's got more of a metallic finish to it than the others, and is one of those glowy polishes that appear slightly darkened at the edges.  The holographic effect is more subtle than the rest, and it's opaque in two coats.  This was photographed without top coat.

My Broken Down Crop Duster is a deep, muted purple (slightly charcoal) holo with a flash of golden shimmer.  Such a gorgeous fall color, and the holographic effect is extremely strong in this one, so it's amazing in the sun!  This one was also nearly opaque in one coat.

Mercy is a burgundy holo, which leans slightly more purple than red.  It's another beautiful color, perfect for fall.  It was also nearly opaque in one coat with a perfect formula, and the holographic effect is pretty strong.

Obsessed With Marilyn is a cranberry red holo.  This one is more of a jelly than the other holos, and the holo is less dense, more scattered, but it really glows from within.  So pretty!  It was opaque in two coats, and I photographed it without top coat as it dried quite shiny.

Penny For Your Thoughts is a burnt orange holo.  Like Obsessed With Marilyn, this one is more jelly than the other holos, with a less dense holo effect, but really glows.  It's such a lovely fall color and opaque in two coats.
Disclaimer: Unfortunately, this one stains pretty badly (bright yellowish stains), however, I scrubbed my nails with a toothbrush and my Arm & Hammer toothpaste, and about 90% of the stains came off.  I then lightly buffed after and they were gone.  You could also do a soak of lemon and baking soda.  You may want to avoid this one if that sounds like too much to handle though!

Burning Embers is a gorgeous, deep bronze with a stunning burgundy duochrome shimmer.  It shifts red, gold, and green and is packed with flakes and multicolored shimmer, so it's super sparkly!  Totally Fall appropriate, and has a perfect formula; opaque in two coats.  I'm not wearing top coat in the photos.


Sherwood Forest is a deep teal green jelly base, with red, orange, gold, blue, and green duochrome shimmer, as well as some multicolored shimmer that really shines in direct lighting.  This is another one of my favorites, and so Fall appropriate.  It was slightly sheer, so I used three thin coats for the photos, without top coat.



I hope you all enjoyed the swatches!  My picks are Sandy We Ain't In Kansas Anymore, Seasons of Change, and My Broken Down Crop Duster.  Make sure you head over to Llarowe if you've got your eye on any of these.  The first restock has now passed, but the second is at 7:00pm MDT!
