ILNP Birefringence and Nostalgia Swatches

The nail polish community (we have regular monthly meetings. Please bring a snack for everyone) has been abuzz with talk about ILNP.

The holos and duochromes are to die for.

Well, not literally. I would die for liberty. Or a penthouse apartment.

Oh wait, if I died for a penthouse apartment, I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the apartment……

While I continue to ponder this, look at these swatches.



It’s an aqua blue on me with purple shifts.






In the spirit of Chanel Peridot, this is a pinkish green duochrome. It also has gold shifts.





I wore these for about 3 days before it started chipping (without a top coat). The formula was very nice and the final effect of the shades were great after two coats (I made sure to let the first coat dry completely before applying the second coat).


Check out the other shades on the ILNP website.

  2. Oh how pretty! The first one is easily the prettiest, but that second one reminds me of Autumn!
