Oh. My. Goodness! I cannot contain my excitement over these colors!
I was sent the new Fall 2015 collection by Colors by Llarowe to swatch. When I got the email asking me if I wanted to do this I was speechless! Ok, maybe not speechless as I hurried up and called my best friend, called my mom and then told my hubby as soon as he walked in the door. Of course none of them have a CBL addiction like me and really had no idea what I was talking about. Ugh! See here for part one of my addiction.
These polishes are filled with holo and shimmer galore! They scream autumn! Leah Ann Larowe definitely knows her fall colors. I couldn’t be more impressed with these pretties.
Like I do with most of my swatches, I took indoor and outdoor photos. My favorite part of swatching CBL is the first time I see it in the sun! Yes, they are pretty inside, but then you walk outside and POW! Holo, shimmer and flash pops out at you. It is nail-gasmic!
All of my swatches are two coats plus top coat, but a lot of these can easily be one coaters. I just like to be thorough.
First up is “Aubergine Dreams.” A gorgeous eggplant linear holo with pink and purple flash. This is a perfect purple for the fall!

“Lake of the Pines” is a teal/pine green with blue undertones and a soft linear holo.
“Last Harvest” is the perfect kelly green holo! I have been searching for a green like this – search over!
“Memories of You” is a silver taupe with scattered holo and lavender undertones. It also has a red shifting shimmer.
“Mocha Grande” is a deep chocolate brown filled with intense linear holo. And who doesn’t love chocolate?
“Rain” is a beautiful bright blue with scattered holo and a glowing finish. I’m not sure if it is supposed to be matte, but before I added the topcoat it sure looked at least demi matte and I liked it!
“Rare Orchid” is a lovely medium pink. Not quite hot pink, not quite magenta. It has scattered holo with a subtle shimmer and a glowing finish. It is gorgeous!
“She’s My Cherry Pie” is a magnificent plum brown linear holo with intense shimmer and a pink and red flash. If black cherry and holo ever had a love child, this would be it!
“The Fallen” is a stunning red jelly base with scattered holo, shifty flakes and a copper to red shimmer. This beauty is somewhat camera shy, but I did my best.
“Wine and Roses” is a beautiful linear holo packed Merlot shade. The shimmer in this one is just amazing!
I hope you enjoyed looking at my swatches as much as I enjoyed swatching them. I have been using some of these colors in nail art which can be seen here and here. Please check it out! There are tutorials as well.
This collection will be available for pre-order September 15, 2015 from 12pm-8pm MDT. Don’t miss the chance to snag these pretties.
