in the sun
in the shade
and some more shimmer, shimmer, shimmer...
I applied two coats of Billy Jean over Essence Hardening Nail Base. The formula is perfection and well, what's left to say about application? Of course flawless. Billy Jean applies like silk and is already upon the first coat even and half opaque. However I would suggest that you do not go over the same area twice as it has the ever so slight tendency to drag. But I didn't wait more than 1-2 minutes in between applying the first and the second coat. After the first coat the base reminded me of a wonderful Chianti lightened up by all that red shimmer. The second coat darkens this polish but while you cannot really identify any Chianti or other wine reference anymore, it never looks black. Instead at two coats the shimmer glows and twinkles under any light.
Final thoughts: I like shimmer. I like Colors by Llarowe. I like this concept of themed collections unrelated to a Season. I like the option of pre-ordering new releases. I like the whole package. And as I type this, I started to wonder if I might keep up that Chianti base if layered over….. oh well this will be for another post ;-)
You can order Colors by Llarowe with - of course - Llarowe!
