Colors by Llarowe: Winter 2017 Collection 


Now that our one and only trick-or-treater has come and gone, I suppose I’ll just sit here staring at a crap ton of candy that I CAN’T FREAKING EAT.  Ugh.  Let’s just say, the sheer amount of willpower happening over here is downright superhuman.  In fact, I’m not sure I’m even ME at the moment.  A facsimile of me, maybe.  Cuz at any other (normal) time, I’d have empty Kit Kat wrappers strewn allll across the table by now.  UNASHAMEDLY.  Quick!  Are we in the right blog?  Cuz seriously, I don’t even know.

I shall distract myself with polish.  I mean, it’s either that or a bowl full of Whoppers, and prettttty sure that’s not how skinny works.  Miss Leah Ann from Colors by Llarowe sent me a whooooole lotta pretty to share with you today!  If you like rich, vibrant color and general yummy deliciousness, you better have yourself a seat and your smelling salts handy: it’s about to get serious.


Gah! Who’s acting completely normal now? NOT THIS LADY.

This is the Winter 2017 Collection, a set of 6 gorgeous shades full of holo and flakies and noodle legs GALORE!  Plus, as an added effortless bonus, there are THREE one coaters in here.  And, well … you had me at effortless.  Cuz who’s got time to spend eons lounging around painting nails all day?  I mean, I DO, but other than that, practically no one.  Oh, you and your fancy life. (Or me and my sad one. Booooo.)

Quick rundown of colors, then I’ll meet you at the bottom. Weeeee!


DESCRIPTION:  A medium plum glowing prismatic holographic with strong orchid flame

OPACITY:  One dreamy coat

OMG, do you hear angels?  I hear angels.  This is quite possibly the prettiest purple that ever lived.  EVER.  If it somehow accidentally ends up on all the surfaces, no one is surprised.  


DESCRIPTION:  A deep blackened copper multichrome with deep green/copper/black shift and intense green shimmer

OPACITY:  Two coats

AACK!  We got a green one.  I know it’s not primarily green, what with the added shifts and the sparkle bits, but I’d say we’re close enough.  We swoon anyway!

Also, “sparkle bits” is a technical term.  I’m sooooo good at blogging, you guys!


DESCRIPTION:  A sheer violet jelly topper with copper/red to green flakies

OPACITY:  Three coats

This one is a layering polish, intended to go on top of a colored base to add some extra fancy.  I did not read my press release before using it (responsibilities!) so here is three coats over naked nails.  Mostly opaque and just as lovely.  With edible flakies.  Prolly.  I dunno.


DESCRIPTION:  A deep navy multichrome that shifts from royal blue to bright green with prismatic holographic flakies

OPACITY:  Another spectacular one coater

Well if that first green one didn’t do you in, here … lemme fix it.  This thing is FREAKING GLORIOUS!  More shift, more sparkle bits, and at least 27 levels of drool-y type scenarios.  Who’s still ladylike?  CERTAINLY NOT ME.


DESCRIPTION:  A deep blurple glowing prismatic holographic with lavender flame

OPACITY:  Gettin’ braggy with her one coat

This one is similar to the first one, a sister polish if you will.  Same glowy goodness, same probability of an accidental surface painting incident.  Someone needs supervised!  (Probably me.)


DESCRIPTION:  A deep plum grape with prismatic holographic flakies

OPACITY:  Two luscious coats

Well if we’re gonna end this blog, might as well go out all swoon-y and proper.  Quick! Lick the screen while no one’s looking. Now act natural.

Good job. Seriously, if you came here for the rational behavior, you’ve picked a horrible day. 


We’re all gonna need wheelie carts to get out of this blog at this point.  Legs aren’t working and neither is brain.  Where is Leonardo when you need him?  (Seriously, WHERE IS HE?!)

  1. I sooooo badly need to know how plum compares to Who Needs Love….can’t decide if I neeeed both :(…and in two minds about Figgy. Some swatches, like yours, are awesomely juicy and then I’ve seen some that are just not nice, lol.


    • Sadly I don’t have Who Needs Love or I’d be more than happy to compare for you 😊 As for Figgy, I think it looks juicy, but the top coat pushes that along. Maybe other pics don’t have a high shine TC? Oooh, a mystery!
