Colors by Llarowe Time to Chill Collection: Swatches & Review

Hi darlings!

Today I'll share a new collection from Colors by Llarowe called Time to Chill. The collection is excusive to Hypnotic Polish and can only be bought from there. From the beginning I had my mind set on three of them but I ended up buying the whole collection.

I wanted new holographic neons since last summer's failure from Mentality. Or scandal. Whatever you want to call it was horrible.

Anyway, the Time to Chill Collection consists of six neon holos. They're all stunning and perfect for summer. Overall the formula is good. A few of them were very sheer and others perfectly normal. Usually when I do a mani with neon I do a white base but for these swatches I didn't so you can actually see the coverage. Thy all dry to semi-matte finish so you need top coat if you want the finish to be shiny.

The photos are taken in artificial lightning.

Island Escape

Island Escape is a neon lime green scattered holo. The colour is so lovely and bright. Perfect neon green. The only downside is that it's a bit sheer on it's own. With a white base you'd probably need two coats.
Shown is three coats plus top coat.

Hello Starfish

Hello Starfish is a watrmlon neon pink scattered holo. This is so pretty. It's surprisingly my favorite from the collection. I'm no big fan of pink but I love this. It's just so summer-y and vibrant. I think it's the least neon one in the collection.
Two coat plus top coat. 

Bikinis & Flip Flops

Bikinis & Flip Flops is a neon purple scattered holo. This one was so hard to photograph. It's a bit lighter in real life. It's such a juicy, intense colour.
Two coats plus top coat.

Zest for Life

Zest for Life is a neon yellow scattered holo. There's a few drops of green in that yellow making it ook evn more neon. I love the coour but it's very sheer. As with Island Escape this one would benefit from a white base.
Shown is three coats plus top coat.

Cocktail Party

Cocktail Party is a neon magenta scattered holo. This is another one that was really hard to photograph. It's a tad lighter and slightly more pink in real life. The colour is gorgeous. It's so vibrant! And the holo makes it even prettier.
Two coats plus top coat.

Sweet Nectar

Sweet Nectar is a neon orange scattered holo. This is such an amazing orange. It's so intense! I love it. This one was also a bit sheer but nowhere near Island Escape and Zest for Life. 
Two coats plus top coat.

Colors by Llarowe POTM June Enjoy-mint


Colors by Llarowe has made a Polish Of The Month for quite a while now. I've bought a few of them. POTM June was one that as soon as I saw swatches I knew I had to have it.

Colors by Llarowe Enjoy-mint is a dusty, muted mint green scattered holo. It's so pretty. The holo is very soft but still gives depth.

Two coats give full coverage. The finish becomes shiny and smooth.  If you want that glass like finish you do need a coat of top coat to achieve it.

Cupcake Polish Butterfly Collection: Swatches & Review


Today I'll show you Cupcake Polih Butterfly Collection. It's a collectio containing six linear holographic polishes. It's a gorgeous collection and the holo is really intense. 
The colours are all beautiful and there's something for everyone in the collection.

Formula wise this colection was very consistent. They all have great formulas. The formula isn't too thick or too thin. It' supereasy to apply and there was no clean up needed. The only thing that bothered me a bit was that they were all a bit sheer. All of the colours needed three coats of polish for full coverage. 

Hatch of the Day

Hatch of the Day is a dusty medium pink linear holo. The colour is beautiful but not very unique. The holo effect is super vibrant and intense though, which gives the polish a little edge.
Three coats and top coat.


Metamorphosis is a medium blue, leaning blurple, linear holo. It's such a vibrant, gorgeous, super holographic colour. One of my favourites from the Butterfly Collection.
Three coats and top coat. 


Cocoon is a rusty burnt copper linear holo. This wold be the perfect orange for fall. It's absolutely gorgeous. 
Three coats and top coat.


Transformation is dusty violet linear holo. The colour is really pretty. It's a bit lighter in real life but this shade of purple was so ard for my camera to capture. The colour is nothing unique but the holo is really pretty and makes the polish look vibrant. 

Little Butterfly 

Little Butterfly is a emerald green linear holo. This one is brilliant. It's intense, vibrant and absolutely gorgeous. This is my favourite from the collection. I love it.
Three coats and top coat. 

Time to Fly

Time to Fly is a fuchsia linear holo. It's a gorgeous colour. It's so juciy and the holo adds a lot of depth. 
Three coats and top coat.

Glam Polish Forever After - My Picks From the Collection

Hi darlings!

Today I'll show you my picks from Glam Polish new collection called Forever After. The collection contains twelve different colours. The nce I chose to buy were Enchanted Forest, Fairest of Them All, Her Own Kingdom, Someday My Prince Will Come and Slay the Dragon. However, all of the colours are beautiful and I wish I could've bought them all, I settled for these five.

I'll probably buy the rest. Not only because the colours are bright and beautiful but because of the names. I love fairy tales. They're my favorite type of stories. 

Enchanted Forest

Enchanted Forest is a bright jade holo with prismatic glitter. The colour is gorgeous. If you want a bright jade this is the one!
Two coats and top coat. 

Fairest of Them All

Fairest of Them All is a bright periwinkle holo with prismatic glitter. It's beautiful but incredible hard to photograph. It's slightly brighter and lighter in ral life than in my pictures.
Three coats and top coat. 

Her Own Kingdom

Her Own Kingdom is a bright hot pink scattered holo with prismatic glitter. This colour is so summery and vibrant.
Two coats and top coat.

Someday My Prince Will Come

Someday My Prince Will Come is a bright sky blue scattered holo with prismatic glitter. I just love the colour, it's so vibrant! 
Three coats and top coat.

Slay the Dragon

Slay the Dragon is a bright lime green leaning neon with a scattered holo and prismatic glitter. This is gorgeous. I love how bright it is, the perfect shade of green for summer.
Two coats and top coat.

The formula on all of these was great. It's thick but it to thick and applies like butter.  There was no need for clean up whatsoever. 
Most of the polishes only needed two thin coats for full coverage the exception being Fairest of Them All and Someday My Prince Will Come. They looked slightly streaky at two coats. 
The finish becomes semi matte and a tad textured so top coat is needed to make the finish shiny and smooth.
