Colors by Llarowe Julia Roberts 1967 & Soccer Mom

Hello all,

Today I have for you two nail polishes from the American brand Colors by Llarowe- Julia Roberts 1967 and Soccer Mom.


Julia Roberts 1967 is from the Emily’s Imagination collection, and it is a pistachio green  with holo particles and silver shimmers beautiness in a bottle. The application was amazing,it dries shiny and the color looks stunning both indoor and outdoors. Reminds me of one rare and very sought after polish- OPI’s Damone Roberts.

Soccer Mom  is from the Summer 2014 Collection and it is a periwinkle / blue -grey with holographic silver particles as glitters. It dried semi-matte, with a little bit of gritty feeling, but a nice thick topcoat / in this case Poshe/ evened it out and gave it shiny finish. Wear time was good.

Yves Saint Laurent Bleu Galuchat #52 & Contrary Polish Anna Maria

Hello lovelies,

After a long break I am back again. And today I have two gorgeous and dark nail polishes, which also are beginning to be in line with the weather outside- autumn is here. The polishes are Yves Saint Laurent Bleu Galuchat #52, and Contrary Polish Anna Maria.


The first one –Bleu Galuchat, is from the new Fall 2014 Cuirs Fetiches Collection. It is with a textured finish, very dark blue leaning towards very dark, indigo dark green. I would actually even describe it as very dark indigo green. In the bottle there is some shimmer, which unfortunately is pretty invisible on the nail and maybe those particles actually dry to form the sand-like finish. Nevertheless, the polish has amazing coverage, 1 coater, but for the swatches I applied 2. The dry time is insanely fast, and the wear test showed no chips after 4 days without top coat of course.

After I applied it I thought it looked familiar as a color, so I went through my stash, and voila- Contrary Polish Anna Maria! The same color, but a a normal texture. So Anna Maria is a nail polish from the indie brand Contrary Polish, and it was released i think in the end of 2012. It is a dark green little teal blue-ish with gold shimmer shade. The shimmer is visible on the nail, and it requires only 2 coats, as the formula was very good and applied nicely. Wear test showed again very good results, no chips after 4 days, with 1 coat of top.

So my verdict- both are must haves! The YSL Bleu Galuchat is perfect for the autumn and winter months , and is in the trend of the textured polishes. And it turned out that Contrary’s Anna Maria is its almost twin, but not with textured finish 😉
