Colors by Llarowe - Overboard Collection Summer 2015 (partial)



*Self Purchased*

A few weeks ago I was up at the Llarowe flagship store in Fort Lupton Colorado (only 40 minutes from my house) for a local nail lover meetup (read about that here) and while we were in the stop Leah Ann was gracious enough to allow us to prebuy any of the colors from the Summer Overboard Collection!

The Overboard Collection has 15 colors inspired by the classic 1987 Goldie Hawn & Kurt Russell movie Overboard. If perhaps you are too young to know this movie I highly recommend that you check it out - I bet its on Netflix - because its hysterical!

While I would LOVE to have the whole collection I limited myself to buying two polishes from the collection and I thought I would share them here with you for launch day!

Katarina is a creamy light sky blue aqua creme with intense violet shimmer.  This polish glows and is so delicate!  Leah Ann told me this was a favorite of hers and that she loves it so much I made a holo version as well in Arturo.






The formula was easy to work with and needed 3 coats for full coverage. Love the violet shimmer - it really is amazing! I was going to stamp over it but decided not to because its just so lovely.

Buh Buh Buh Buh Buh is a Periwinkle blue jelly base with intense violet shimmer and micro flake.  This polish glows and the color differs in different lighting and hand movement. Again three coats for full coverage.




Shades in the Overboard Collection range from $6.00-$12.00 and will be available for pre-order TODAY, Monday June 15th from 12:00 (MST) - 8:00PM (MST) on Llarowe's website.  Be sure to hop over to their website and Facebook page to see swatches of all the fabulous colors!

Also launching today is the Little Miss Independent Collection - A trio of red, white and blue polishes to celebrate American Independence Day on July 4th! This is a very limited edition release which will be SOLD as a SET (not individually) and is NOT a pre-order. Available only while quantities last.

Are you picking up any of the Overboard Collection shades today? Which are your favorites? Tell me below as I'd love to hear from you!

  2. Beautiful swatches! I buy a few from every CbL collection, but I'm usually not in a hurry. I'm tempted by the Little Miss Independent trio, but only because I really like the white.
