Colors by Llarowe Tribute To Michael Jackson Collection Swatches and Review

Press Sample

I have another amazing collection to show you tonight!  It is missing ONE polish – which will be on my front step tomorrow morning.  Since the name is a BIG one… I’ll give it it’s own post ;)

Tonight I have the Colors By Llarowe Tribute To Michael Jackson Collection!

These will be launching on the Llarowe Shop TOMORROW!

Beat It

Beat It Normal Lighting

First up we have Beat It!  This is 1 of 3 linear holos in the collection.  Beat It is a charcoal linear holo with blue flash.  I used 2 coats for this photo!  This is also normal kitchen lighting.

Man In The Mirror

Man In The Mirror full

Man In The Mirror is a dense silver micro glitter with holo micro glitter.  I used 2 coats on its own for this photo and 2 coats of top coat to smooth it over.  Incredibly sparkly!

One coat over Bad

If you aren’t into the full on glitter look, it’s a nice glittery top coat over another shade!  This is one coat over Bad (which you will see next)

Bad is another stunner.  Bad is a deep indigo with a pink flash!  I used 2 coats for this photo.  It’s nearly a one coater though.

Billy Jean


Billy Jean is a wine red crelly with intense golden red to green shimmer.  This is a classy shade perfect for Fall!

Black or White

Black Or White over Melon Wine

Black or White is a glitter top coat!  It contains black and white matte glitter in hexes, circles and bars!  I used 2 coats over Melon Wine (from the Last Shot of Summer Collection).

I am missing ONE polish and it will be here tomorrow, as I mentioned earlier.  I am missing Thriller!  How can it be a Tribute to Michael Jackson without Thriller?!  I will have it up tomorrow as soon as possible!  My mailman usually gets here at 9am… so tomorrow better not be his day to be late ;)

    I love how you showed them in artificial light. Great swatches. You made them all look phenomenal. Wait, they are phenomenal. You just captured them well!

    Dirty Diana and Beat It must be mine – gorgeous! But the most surprising part of your review is that your mail gets delivered at 9am – lucky lady! Takes mine until 6pm some days – which just plain hurts when you have beautiful polishes like these on their way to you!

    Beautiful swatches, you made me want to have them all, argh. How many coats was Billy Jean?

    Looking forward to your swatch of Thriller, I read it’s a teal holo and I just love teal.

      Oh sorry! I used 2 coats for Billy Jean!

    This is the right web site for everyone who would
    like to understand this topic. You understand a whole
    lot its almost hard to argue with you (not that I really would want to…HaHa).
    You certainly put a new spin on a subject that’s been written about for
    years. Excellent stuff, just wonderful!
