Hello everyone! Hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday! 🙂 Today I will be sharing swatches of Colors by Llarowe‘s Pretty Woman Collection.
This collection consists of 13 polishes – 7 holos, 1 crelly glitter, and 5 crelly shimmers. All swatches were taken under Cree daylight bulbs and macros under LED bulbs.
976-Babe is an intense berry red holo with added purple shimmer. Shown here is ONE coat with top coat. I am OBSESSED with this baby. I experienced some staining at the base of my nail when I removed the polish but it was totally worth it! What makes this polish is the purple shimmer which is more like a flash because it’s always present.
Yeah, I’m mesmerized too…
“A Lot More Help Sucking Up”
A Lot More Help Sucking Up is a denim blue holo with scattered pink shimmer. Shown here is ONE coat with top coat. You all must know by now that I love blue and I love holo so the two together… AMAZING!
Can I just swim in it??
Barney is an orchid purple crelly with pink shimmer. Shown here is three coats with top coat. This polish was pretty opaque in two coats but I added the third to get rid of any visible nail line that was present. For some reason my camera captured it to be more purple than it actually is. It leans a little more pink than vibrant purple (the macro is truer to color). Either way, it’s a gorgeous shade!
Love how the shimmer transforms the polish!
“Big Mistake. Big. Huge.”
Big Mistake. Big. Huge. is a rose pink crelly that shifts to a slight soft lilac with gold shimmers. Three coats with top coat. This polish was opaque in two coats but I had a couple streaks that I wanted to smooth out so I applied a third coat. Of the 5 crelly shimmers, this is the most intense so I was instantly drawn to it!
Such a great shade for spring!
Blue Banana is a blurple crelly with pink/purple shimmer. Shown here is two coats with top coat. This is another shade that my camera did not want to capture correctly. The base color is blue but with the added shimmers it’s definitely more on the purple side. You can see more of the purple hue in the macro photo.
Blurple polishes … always keeping me on my toes!
Divot Dance is a teal green holo with subtle color shifting glass flakes. Shown here is ONE coat with top coat. This polish makes me hardcore swoon. At first sight, I knew I would love it and I do!
Three words: you need it.
“I Want the Fairytale”
I Want the Fairytale is a bright cobalt blue crelly with pink/purple shimmer. Three coats with topcoat. My favorite shade of blue AND its got pink and purple shimmers?! Yup, I love it.
Ooh-ing and Ahh-ing over this color and shimmer combo!
Kit is a bright red crelly with an assortment of glitters – large pink holographic circle and hex, small blue and purple duochrome hex, red holographic bar, and micro holographic glitters. Shown here is two coats with top coat. The large assortment of glitters go so well with this crelly polish. I had to fish for the larger glitters but that’s easily overcome with the fact that there are so many other types of glitters that you get with each coat.
Can’t take my eyes off the duochrome holographic shifts that are happening in this macro!
I. Just. Can’t…
“Pirates of Penzance”
Pirates of Penzance is an intense (and I mean intense!) true red holo with added purple shimmer. Shown here is ONE coat with top coat. This polish is on FIYAAAAAA *insert Alicia Keys singing voice* I mean talk about sexy! Wow! I don’t know about you but this screams Pretty Woman to me.
Man oh man… it’s getting hot in herrrrrr.
“Slippery Little Suckers”
Slippery Little Suckers is peach crelly with light blue and purple shimmer. Shown here is three coats plus top coat. Here’s another shade that is perfect for spring! So soft and delicate. I wasn’t able to capture the shimmer in this polish in a macro but you can definitely see that it’s there.
“Vivian + Edward”
Vivian + Edward is a bright hot pink holo with purple shimmer. Shown here is ONE coat plus top coat. Another polish from this collection that I just simply adore. Very girly, very pink, very holo!
Barbie would be in heaven!
“Well Done! Woo! Woo! Woo!”
Well Done! Woo! Woo! Woo! is a light turquoise creme with gold shimmer, micro pink, blue, and gold flakes, and subtle holo. Shown here is two coat with top coat. This polish was named perfectly – not because of the movie reference but because of how amazing this polish is. I don’t have anything like this in my polish collection which is always a huge plus. It’s just so perfect – Bravo!
“What’s Your Dream?”
What’s Your Dream is a deep magenta holo with added purple shimmer. ONE coat with top coat. This polish has made me realize that my dream is to be able to encapsulate everything that I own with a holo sheen that is as magnificent as this polish. I am so not kidding. I may even want to bathe in this color because I love it so much.
I need this in my life… all day… every day… every where.
I’m so in love. The color scheme goes very well with the Pretty Woman theme and I love how each polish tell it’s own story. I had almost no application issues and 6 out of 13 polishes were ONE COATERS! My favorites would be 976-Babe, Divot Dance, Well Done! Woo! Woo! Woo!, and What’s Your Dream?. Yes I realize that all of these are holographic polishes but come on, were you at all surprised? 😛 Regardless of my picks, they are all great!
I do need to mention one thing… ALL of the shimmers watermarble as do the majority of the holos! Whattttt?! I’ve done two watermables using polishes from this collection that I’ll be sharing on my Instagram and YouTube later this week!
This collection is currently out of stock but will be restocked soon! Check out Colors By Llarowe on Instagram for updates as to when this great collection will be available for purchase again!
