When ILNP dropped the preview swatches of their Fall 2017 collection, I basically nearly died from heart palpitations.
So when they went on sale over at Rainbow Connection I had to get my hands on at least a few of them! I ended up purchasing five from the collection and I’m so happy with my choices as they’re all beautiful.
Let’s take a look at the swatches and my thoughts about each shade!
This stunning linear holographic polish has a muted pale blue base and shimmers all the colours of the rainbow. The formula is a good consistency, not too thin and not too thick, and it’s perfect with two coats. Shown here with two coats and a topcoat.
This purple based polish shimmers a dazzling yellow gold in the light, as well as having a sprinkling of holo glitters strewn throughout. Again, a really nice formula on this, leaving it perfect in two coats. Two coats and a topcoat.
A dark blue polish packed with reflective silver glitter as well as a touch of holographic glitter. This was definitely the thickest formula of the ones I bought, but I assume that it is due to the amount of glitter in it. Don’t get me wrong, it didn’t make it difficult to apply, just an observation! Shown here with two coats and a topcoat.
This polish has to be my favourite of the bunch, a stunningly vivid purple holographic polish that has a pink/gold shift to it. This is a thinner formula than the others mentioned, and although you could get away with two thicker coats, it looks better with three thinner ones! Shown is three coats with a topcoat.
Lastly, we have this intense black based polish that shifts from red to green to gold. This, again, was a thinner formula so would need three coats for full opacity. Alternatively, you could pop it over a black polish and I assume the effect would be similar. Shown here with three coats and a topcoat.
The Fall 2017 collection is, once again, absolutely beautiful. There’s a variety of shades and each is so unique, which is what I generally love about ILNP. The formulas are slightly inconsistent but I don’t mind that given the difference in ingredients. I’ll definitely be buying more from the collection and can’t wait to get plenty of use out of these gorgeous shades!
