Hi loves! Today I have a very pretty shade to show you from Colors by Llarowe. It's called Intrigue and made exclusively for your favorite indie stockist - Hypnotic Polish! Maria asked me if I wanted to swatch it and I am so happy she did, because it's really really pretty.
My swatches are 2 coats of Intrigue over a base of Duri Rejuvacote. I used G&G HK Girl topcoat to finish it off and give it a shiny finish.
Colors by Llarowe is described as a deep aubergine purple, filled with golden shimmer and a holographic finish. While the golden shimmer doesn't necessarily show up, I hink it adds to the depth of the shade giving it a warm and jewel like tone.
The formula is really good. Almost opaque in 1 coat, even and fully opaque at 2. It isn't thin nor thick, the polish can be handled easily and doesn't pool your cuticles. The only remark I have is that it doesn't dry particularly shiny, but I never wear anything without topcoat anyway so I didn't really care about that.
Overall, I think Hypnotic Polish has another gorgeous exclusive added to the range and if you are a CbL fan, this might be a great addition to your stash!
How do you feel about this deep, dark shade? Is it anything you'd wear? Tell me in the comments!
