Colors by Llarowe Jitterbug

Jitterbug was released at the beginning of this month by Colorado-based indie polish maker Colors by Llarowe as the brand's March 2018 Polish of the Month (POTM). It's described as "a reddened hot pink, prismatic holo flake with a blue to purple aurora pigment for added sparkle." The color is a vibrant, rosy, medium-dark Mexican pink with aspects of raspberry and cerise. Abundant silvery holographic flakies give the polish a luminously dappled visual texture and create a delicious, dimensional prismatic flush in bright hues of red, rose, pink and lavender in ambient light. So pretty!

Application was wonderful. The consistency of Jitterbug is fluid, light and smooth with a medium viscosity and a fluent, even, self-leveling glide over the nail, a beautiful, eminently-paintable formula that is on par with the brand's best. Pigmentation is very good to excellent, almost a one-coater, and delivers completely even opacity and full bottle color in two coats. Cleanup is straightforward with a tiny bit of pigment travel. Jitterbug dries naturally in very good time to a smooth, shiny finish. Topcoat accentuates the prismatic effects of the flakies.

I always look forward to CbL's POTMs and this one is gorgeous, I love it! The color is fierce -- lush, saturated and feminine -- and the luminous prismatic effects of those holographic flakes really complement its native rosy richness. Perfect!

Currently, Jitterbug is still available at Girly Bits in Canada and Hypnotic Polish in the UK.
