ILNP Cygnus Loop

This week's nails/swatch is ILNP Cygnus Loop, one of ILNP's awesome Ultra Chrome polishes. Eyed this polish (and many others!) for years before finally buying it. It's topped with Sally Hansen Miracle Gel top coat in my photos. https://www.instagram.com/p/BfP41acgmSP/?taken-by=eternaldecember Cygnus Loop is an exceptionally shifty multichrome polish that primarily reads as a bright blue-violet on my nails,...

ILNP Grace

This is ILNP Grace, an Ultra Holo from ILNP's fall 2017 lineup. This is two coats, topped with Sally Hansen Miracle Gel top coat, which I've been wearing for about a week. It was neutral enough that I'm still not tired of it! My Instagram post has some photos in both sunlight and artificial light... Continue Reading →

ILNP Lights Out

So, I finally made my first-ever ILNP order. I’ve been covetously eying their amazing polishes (best holos and multichromes ever!) for years, but I just kept biding my time for some reason. (Then they sent me a 25% off coupon because I’d registered and never bought anything, and I was galvanized to action. Took me long... Continue Reading →
