Swatches & Review // Colors By Llarowe Spring 2016 Creme and shimmers

Hi guys! Are you up for some swatches? I've got the 4 piece Spring 2016 Creme and Shimmers collection from Colors by Llarowe for you today and it is gorgeous! I've shown you a couple of collections from them before and I was very impressed with those, so when these showed up on my doorstep I was very excited.

Wanna check them out?
This 4 piece collection consists of 2 cremes, a shimmer and a neon shimmer. The formula, as I've come to expect from this brand, is perfect. I almost felt like the polishes have something of the texture of a ridge filling polish to them, a bit thicker but smooth, easy to apply and self levelling. They also dry very quickly. They do dry down to a bit of a satin finish though, so they benefit from a nice coat of topcoat. But they take the gloss very well and then turn out to be shinier than most polishes, especially the cremes.

Ain't nobody leavin' til we sing the blues is a fun and very bright royal blue creme. This would be a gorgeous base for glitter or flakies! It was opaque in 2 easy coats.

Barney Sucks! is a a super fun and bright lilac creme. This color is my life now! It's my favourite out of the 4, so gorgeous! This is 3 coats, but you could probably do 2 if macro pictures aren't involved.

Freeze frame is a very interesting one. It's a charcoal jelly base with bright blue shimmer. The shimmer becomes muted by the jelly base and turns a lovely dusty color. Shown here is 3 coats. 

Bow chicka wow wow is one seriously bright polish! It's a neon coral with bright pink shimmer. I had to take a gazillion pictures because my camera just didn't 'get' it. In the end I do think I've captured the brightness, but the pretty pink has been lost a little bit in the pictures/ Now you guys know I do not like orange polishes at all, but I actually love this one! The brightness is just awesome and the addition of the pink actually makes it work with my skintone. Shown here is 3 coats, over a normal (non white) base, which is crazy for a neon.

Overall conclusion
These are awesome! The formula is great and every one of these colors is stunning. There is nothing more to say really!

What do you guys think? Do any one of these catch your eye? Or are you not ready for spring colors yet? Please let me know below!
