Valentines Polish Swap - Colors By Llarowe 'Young Turks'

Hello lovelies! I recently participated in a Valentines polish swap through a nail polish group over on Facebook. The idea of the swap was to try a polish from a 'new to us' brand. We each compiled a list of untried indie brands along with our likes and dislikes to be sent to our secret swap partner (our 'Varnish Valentine').
 
The polish I was lucky enough to receive was the gorgeous Colors By Llarowe (CBL) 'Young Turks'. Read on to see my swatch pictures!

Colors By Llarowe 'Young Turks'

'Young Turks' is described as a 'bright turquoise holo', although I would definitely consider it a bright blue (just me?). Either way, it is a stunning polish and has an amazing formula. This was almost opaque for me in one coat. If you apply thicker coats, I do think this could be a one coater. I used two thinner coats with topcoat for the photos below.

How gorgeous is this?! The holographic is ridiculously strong (more than my photos suggest). I have been after a nice bright blue holo for a while - this is the kind of shade I was after so I'm very happy. I definitely want to try more CBL polishes in the future!

I am still unsure who my Varnish Valentine was. If you happen to be reading this, thank you so much. I love my polish and all of the extra goodies!

  1. Blues are a Deffo Fav of mine, and this would be great in my collection, expecially being a one coat, I am very tempted!
    Great post Becca x
