Colors by Llarowe ~ Hellcat

Colors by Llarowe ~ Hellcat
Purple to deep red duochrome with copper to pink duochromatic flakies

Hellcat. I just LOVE that name for a polish. And I love it even more when the polish is a beautiful colourshifter, like Hellcat is. My BF asked if there are sister polishes called Wildcat, Bearcat and Tigercat. A boys-only question, apparently.

Anyhoo. I’ve read several reviews that said that the formula is thick. Well, my Hellcat is not thick, she’s got just the perfect consistency! I used two easy coats for my mani, and the drying time is pretty good.

Here’s two coats and a layer of topcoat in the sun:

And here’s a picture taken in the shade. The colour shift is prominent, also in the flakies, which now show themselves in the pink dress.

This is a lightbox picture. I love the amount of flakies.

I remember there was some talk about whether Hellcat was a dupe of another indie polish, namely Naughty Night Shift Nurse by Pretty Serious. Unfortunately I don’t own that polish, so I can’t compare the two. I just know that no matter how close the two polishes are, I would definitely keep them both, because look at how pretty Hellcat is!! 

No nail art today. I specifically picked this polish because I knew I was going to wear it on its own :)

Do you own Hellcat? What about Naughty Night Shift Nurse?

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Duochrome with flakies
Overall impression: Wow, I love this polish. The name is fantastic too!
Buy again: Yes

    Sadly I don't own any of Llarowe nail polishes, but it looks like I'll have to do some shopping pretty soon.

    1. It's so hard to chose between all the beautiful polishes she's got :)
