Hi all! When I first saw the Colors by Llarowe Krispy Kreme Dreams Collection I knew that some of the colors would be coming to live with me. It is a collection of 6 vibrant saturated holos and shimmers. Alas, I was a very good girl and allowed myself only three of the colors.
First up is Bananas and Krispy Kremes Are Better Than HBO. A vibrant lime/yellow green with yellow/green flame. I lurv this polish! So much so that after I got through swatching the other colors I put it back on and wore it for two more days. The formula was great; thick but not too thick. I used two coats for full opacity but you could get away with just one generous coat as well.
I first previewed Giant Giraffes in my Yard on Instagram about a week ago. It was the first color I tried on and the one that first caught my eye in the collection. It is a described as a deep purple holo with pink shimmer. This reads a little darker and warmer on my skin tone than I've seen in other swatches but I still love it. The formula was the thinnest of the three but still easy to work with. I used two coats for full opacity.
Last is High School Was Rough Man. This color was rough on my camera, man. Seriously. I had the hardest time getting my skin tone to look somewhat human in these pics. Blues make my skin look red as hell in photos for some reason. This is the closest I could get so ignore that and focus on the gorgeous color of this polish! It is a vibrant Teal-y blue-y green-y holo. Another favorite for me. I am sucker for colors like this. The formula was pretty much identical to Bananas and Krispy Kremes'. I used two coats for pics but again you could get away with just one generous coat.
I am really happy with my pics from this collection. I almost talked myself into buying the other three colors but I have spent and insane amount of money on Spring collections over the last few weeks and my wallet is screaming for mercy.
The Krispy Kreme Dreams Collection is available via the Llarowe website. They retail for $12 a bottle.
