Llarowe Mystery Bag April 2014

Yes, you read that  right! I have another Llarowe Mystery Bag to show you! You can see my other bags here and here. This bag contained:
Darling Diva Seduction
Darling Diva 1999
Liquid Sky Lacquer New Beginnings

The New Beginnings is a dupe from my last bag. You can see swatches of that one here. The Darling Diva polishes are both toppers so I thought I would show you what it looks like over four different colors. That way, you can get a good sense of what it would look like for you! :D

First, here is Darling Diva Seduction. This is a white holo topper that can really make a polish pop. My favorite is it over black. It looks like a good start to galaxy nails! :D

Next, here is Darling Diva 1999. This glitter topper is so much fun! It has circle pink and circle silver glitters in a couple different sizes. Then, it has small black bars. All of this is suspended in a very light purple jelly base. Because of the purple tint, it changed the white to a very light pink on my pinkie! I kinda like it!

While I was writing this post, I was watching Deadbeat which is a new original series on Hulu. It’s hilarious! But not for everyone…there are some pretty racy jokes in there, but I think it’s funny!

Llarowe Mystery Bag!

I got my Llarowe Mystery Bag in the mail today!!! I really love these bags. (To see my previous bags, click here.)  I love the surprise and I love trying polishes that I wouldn’t normally pick out for myself. I got three polishes:
Liquid Sky Lacquer New Beginnings
Darling Diva Polish Persephone
Wicked Polish Dropping Balls

Before I show you the swatches, don’t forget to enter this month’s giveaway by clicking here!

First up, let’s take a look at Liquid Sky Lacquer New Beginnings. The application on this one was very smooth. I needed three coats for the opacity shown. If you wanted to do few than that, just start with a coat of white polish. I didn’t really like this one in the bottle, but I LOVE it on. It’s a gorgeous clean, shimmery, milky polish with cobalt blue glitters. It reminds me of the movie “Frozen” but that’s probably because “Frozen” mani’s are all over the place right now!

Next up, we have Darling Diva Polish Persephone. I must not be good at judging polishes in their bottles, because this is another one I didn’t think I was going to like. Once I had it on, me oh my! This baby is gorgeous! It’s a duochrome that shifts from cranberry to blue. Just stunning. This is two coats.

This last one is Wicked Polish Dropping Balls. Again–I’m super bad at judging polishes from their bottles. This much I learned today. I thought this was going to be my favorite of the three. However, the application on this one is atrocious. It was nearly impossible to get a smooth, even coat. I don’t even know how to describe it. It was gloopy and thick and I felt like a child trying to play with mommy’s makeup. This is my first (and last?) Wicked Polish. Those of you who have used this line before, is it normal for application to be this difficult?

Even though I ended up not liking one of the three polishes, the mystery bags are totally worth it. I got two polishes that are beautiful and they are both ones I never wouldn’t have purchased of my own accord. I would call this bag a winner!

What do you think? Do you have a favorite of the three?

Llarowe Mystery Grab Bags

Llarowe Mystery Grab Bags are available once in a while on Llarowe.com. When I saw they were in stock, I decided to snag two! It is three polishes for $20 which is a great deal!

I don’t know which three would have come together as all six were just in the box together.
