Colors by Llarowe Summer Collection review part 2

Hi guys!
Guess what? I have more Colors by Llarowe for you today! Last week I swatched 20 polishes from the new Summer collection and today I have 11 more! Colors by Llarowe has quickly become one of my favorite indie brands, I bet you'll understand why by the end of this post.

To catch up on the previous review, just follow this link.

The shimmers
I already reviewed Holiday Road and Connie's Nosy Neighbor.

The third, Alternate Universe, is shown below.

Consistency was perfect, an ultra sparkly glass fleck, fully opaque in 2 coats. Swatches below with both regular and matte topcoat.

Alternate Universe
Turquoise crelly base with strong lime green shimmer 
2 coats

The jellies / crellies 
Already reviewed : Blue Jeans & Beauty Queens, Read My Lips, More New Colors and Summer...Finally!.
The five others are shown below.

Formula was nice and easy to work with. I used 2 coats plus topcoat on all of these but Strawberry Wine which required a third. Liquor is Quicker could have used another coat too but I didn't really feel the need for it.

The glitters

Shown below : Blonde Ambition and Watch Me Fly, See Me Soar.

Perfect application and intense holo effect, simply flawless. I used 2 coats and no topcoat in all of my swatches.
