Colors by Llarowe ~ The Man in the Red Suit

Colors by Llarowe ~ The Man in the Red Suit
Cherry red linear holo

I’m in a red kind of a mood today, and I checked out my boxes of untrieds to see if there should be a red that fitted my mood. There was! I found The Man in the Red Suit, which is from Llarowe’s Christmas collection 2013! So yes, it’s been sitting unnoticed in the box for over a year, poor little polish!

The formula is great and application was really easy. This is practically a one coater! I used two coats, both out of habit but also because that’s the way I roll, haha! The drying time between the coats is good too.

Dudes and dudettes, this polish is an absolute beauty!

Two coats and no topcoat – flash picture:

The colour is amazing and the rainbows are stunning!

The polish is also beautiful in lower lights. This is where you can really see that this isn’t a true red. I love this colour!

I added more holo and some glitter too! I applied a thin stripe of glitter down the sides of my pinkie and my pointer. The glitter is from H&M and is called Silver Frost. On my ring finger and my middle finger I made candy cane stripes. I used striping tape and a silver holo from Urban Outfitters called Silver Holo. Great and very innovative name :D Here’s the final result:

Me and striping tape aren’t the best of friends. It’s such a hassle, but I admit that I like what you can actually do with it.

The polishes: 

I love how this turned out. The Man in the Red Suit is a great polish and I really like how this mani came together.

Overall impression: Amazing colour, great quality, fantastic rainbows.
