Colors by Llarowe Winter 2015 collection swatches and review!

Happy Monday everyone!
Yeah, that's probably not your favorite day of the week either - and it's been the longest day at work for me - but I have a whole bunch of new Colors by Llarowe polishes to show you today so it's can't be all bad now, right?

The CbL Winter collex is a set of 12 Holiday themed polishes and there's a little bit of everything : holo, of course, but also glitter and shimmer. Let's give them all a closer look!

Formula was top notch on the entire collection. They were all pigmented and applied like butter. I know some people have experienced staining with a couple of these, namely Berries In The Snow and Jewel of Denial but I used a thicker than average basecoat and didn't experience any whatsoever. Basecoat is always a must guys!

Two coats and no topcoat in all of the pictures below.

Berries In The Snow is "a Blackened berry wine intense linear holo."
Absolutely gorgeous, it's one of my favorites 

Breathless is "a deep magenta red crelly base packed with red to gold shifting shimmer."
A beautiful vampy, not so dark that it looks black even under low lighting.

Fairy Dust is "a white jelly scattered holo with multi sized holo shimmer and micro glitter."
An ethereal white, soft and delicate.

Hot Buttered Rum is "a nude scattered glow holo with golden yellow flame."
Not the most flattering color on me but a nice take on your average gold, I can see it working on lighter skin tones.

Ice Ice Baby is "a medium sky blue intense linear holo with blue and turquoise flame."
 A mix between Winter blue and denim, very complementing.

If You Dare is "a deep hot pink fuchsia intense linear holo with intense violet flame."
Jaw drops... A must have, this polish is so vibrant, an instant top favorite!

Jewel of Denial is "an emerald green with slight blue undertone linear holo with aqua flame."
It actually looks more teal than emerald to me but it's a beautiful colors nonetheless.

Peacock Parade is "a deep blue toned teal soft linear holo."
Another beautiful blue, CbL definitely knows how to make them.

Plum Perfect is "a medium plum fuchsia intense linear holo with blue flame."
And another heart stopper! A must have IMO, so much depth and glow.

Santa Baby is "a medium neutral red intense linear holo with red flame and red sparkle."
I love reds and I'm really digging the festive shimmery look this one has, even in the shade where the holo tends to disappear. It's super intense too.

'shroom with a View is "a mushroom taupe brown scattered glow holo with lighter taupe flame."
An interesting twist on the usual Wintery brown. Muted and cool tones in the shade, it morphs into a sizzling holo under direct lighting.

And finally Tree of Light is "a christmas green scattered holo with multi sized holo microglitter."
A lot of sparkle but not so packed with glitters that you'd feel self conscious wearing it on an everyday basis.

Overall :
Another gorgeous CbL collection with a couple of breathtaking creations. My top picks : Berries In The Snow, If You Dare, Plum Perfect and Santa Baby.
