Darling Diva Ladies of a Certain Age collection: swatches, review

Friday, November 28, 2014

Darling Diva Polish has released another stunning collection. The Ladies of a Certain Age collection has six stunning holographic polishes with silver or gold flakes. The names are fun too. For ladies of a certain age - these names may be a bit naughty. 

The flakes definitely complement the holographic sheen on the polishes. They applied easily and the flakies rested flat against the nail.

Let's take a look.

FBS is a gorgeous mid tone purple holographic polish with silver flakes. The holo prisms are vivid and the holo arc is primarily a vivid blue. This is two coats with a top coat.

Xmas/Hanukkah 2014 Collection - swatches, review - part two

Wednesday, November 26, 2014


Here is the second of three posts of the Colors by llarowe Xmas/Hanukkah 2014 Collection. Yep, that's right... More gorgeousness.

I am making several posts so it isn't so photo heavy. I had a difficult time choosing between photos - so there are quite a few. These polishes require multiple photos. 

As part of Llarowe's Black Friday sale, this collection will be offered at a discount of $1 off each bottle IN STORE ONLY (meaning the physical Llarowe store in CO).

Xmas/Hanukkah 2014 Collection will launch as a pre-order on the Llarowe website December 1st. A discount of $1 per bottle will be offered if the whole set is purchased.

Now, let's take a look!


Santy Claws is a bright pink/red jelly based polish with copper and red flakes with purple iridescent micro glitter. This jelly base of this polish makes it three-dimensional. The bright pink/red shade will definitely be an eye-catcher! The flakes and purple glitter add an interesting and appealing factor to the overall appearance. This is two coats with a top coat. Without a top coat, it has an ever so slight texture.

Plum Pudding is a jelly based polish. This deep plum shade has a red tendency and has silver and magenta micro glitter. These micro glitters complement this plum perfect shade. It dries glossy and has a very slight texture before top coat is applied. This is three coats with a top coat.

Peppermint Kisses is a red jelly based polish with holo micro glitter, golden flakes and gold shimmer - it's the perfect shade for holiday events, or any other day of the year. The holo micro glitter and flakes add a magical illusion to the overall appearance of this polish. It's a rich color that dries to a glossy finish. It does have a very slight texture before top coat is applied. This is three coats with a top coat.

O Holy Night is a silver based extreme linear holographic polish. It also has a strong golden shimmer. Holy Holo! This vivid holo polish will shine bright and light your way. This polish will look golden in some lighting and silver in other lighting. It definitely sent my camera into fits trying to focus. The photos below were taken in different lighting and angles. This is two coats with a top coat.

Xmas/Hanukkah 2014 Collection - swatches, review - part one


I'm excited to be able to share the Colors by llarowe Xmas/Hanukkah 2014 Collection with you today.  This collection has some stunners in it. Multi-chromes, glitters, holos... Oh My! I am going to post a few posts so it isn't so photo heavy. I had a difficult time choosing between photos - so there are quite a few. But these polishes have so many personalities that they need multiple photos.

Now, let's get to the real reason for this post - the polishes!

Bells Will Be Ringing is a teal to pink to purple multi-chrome with intense scattered to linear holo. This shade has truly magical color shifts and the holo illusion just adds to the depth and overall appearance of the polish. Every movement of the nail and every change in light transforms the look. This is one of my favorites of the collection. This is two coats with a top coat of HK Girl.

Gingerbread Man is a gorgeous, deep chocolate brown. This scattered holo with golden, green and blue arc has that "lit from within" look. I had a hard time capturing all the color prisms in the photos; but they are there and aren't shy at all in real life. This amazing polish is sure to please. This rich polish is classy and deep in color. This is two coats with a top coat.

I Holla for Challah! is a deep royal blue with amazing shimmer. I am partial to blue polishes and this crelly base with intense light blue, violet and aqua shimmer makes me realize why. This deep blue shade has the "lit from within" appearance that I adore. This polish dries semi matte and has a slight (very slight) texture. This is two coats with a top coat.

Little Drummer Boy is my positive favorite from this collection. This shade has a mesmerizing high-gloss finish and the multi-chrome effect is sure to be an eye-catcher. It has a copper to pink to gold multi chrome shift. The intense scattered to linear holo adds depth and dimension. You might want to wear gloves when you are driving so you don't get distracted by the gorgeousness of it. This is two coats with a top coat.
