Swatch & Review: Colors by Llarowe July POTM – Rebillion


You might find this hard to believe but during my teenage years, I was pretty reckless. We’re all friends here, so can I be honest? I used to drink underage, go clubbing and partying, smoke cigarettes, just basically engaging in activities I had no business with. I know you’re probably think, ‘not Krystal’. But yep, that was me, bucking up against the system…. #myparents because…..I really don’t know why, maybe I thought it was cool and I wanted to push the limits? I never got into anything too serious, I kinda chalked it up to being a teenager.

Nevertheless, I grew out of that rebellious phase and matured very quickly when I found out I was pregnant with my son at 19. He is the best thing that happened to me and thank God for him because I’m not sure how my life would be if I didn’t have him.

Anyway, enough of the mushy stuff, lets talk shop…or polish in this case. The moral of my story is, I’m sure most of us would agree that we have been rebellious at some point in time. But I don’t remember rebellion looking so good.

Today I have Rebellion, the July Polish of the Month (PotM) from Colors by Llarowe (CbL). If you’re not familiar with PotM, then let me warn you now, SET MANY, MANY ALARMS!!! PotM is a one time, 24 hour offering pre-order polish that launches on the first of each month. PotM are only be available for purchase on the 1st of each month and then WILL NOT be offered again. And spoiler alert…. I will have August PotM too. I mean not today, but in a few weeks, I’ll have a full S&R!!! I’m so excited. But let’s not jump too far ahead, let’s take a look at Rebellion.

**All swatches are done using Commitment Issue Peel-off Base Coat by Vapid and Tonic Topper by Tonic (shiny) and Matte Me topcoat by Jior Couture Polishes (matte). Swatch photos are taken using artificial lights.**

  Overall Thoughts

Formula / Application: formula is amazing and while it dries slightly textured, a good quality top coat will bring out the sparkle and shine

Opacity: 3 coats

Price: $11

Availability: July 1st at 12pm mt – July 2nd at 12pm mt

Overall: LeahAnn is amazing and all the polishes I have from this brand are gorgeous. I love the flakies and how squishy this polish is. And with the matte tc…forget about it! Set an alarm, get the polish!
