Swatch: ILNP Greatness

Alright, I actually have a real opinion on this one. I am pretty disappointed. Greatness is absolutely lovely to be sure, but if you already own and like Abundance, it is not worth spending your money on. I expected much more red lean than the bronze Abundance but... well, it's not. I even put Abundance on my thumbs (no picture sorry) and it goes a bit more golden but you really can't tell the difference....

SIGH. Oh well, this one's up for swap the next/first time I meet my Vancouver nail ladies <3
 still has many lovely colours. Check it out!

Swatch: Rainbow Honey Apple Peel

Swatchy swatch!! Rainbow Honey Apple Peel has been sitting in my untrieds for a while and it's pretty perfect for fall. It's a rich bronze red and was opaque in three coats.

Swatch: ILNP Ice House

Alright so you saw my sorry attempt for a french with ILNP Homecoming. It's a gorgeous colour so it definitely needed its own full swatch post. I put it over my current favourite dark blue, Cult Nails Time Traveler in two coats.

It shifts from purple to a teal-y blue and it's lovely and rich.

These photos make me happy. Check for more like this!

Swatch: ILNP Homecoming

I am up to my ears in ILNP untrieds so I'm gonna start here getting into the dark fall colours. Homecoming isn't quite what I expected. In dim light it's not that impressive to me. A dark purple with a black undertone. Three coats here.

It obviously came alive under bright lights. Check that holo!

I attempted to fix it up with a french tip but...

The green-y blue didn't really mesh with the silver/black purple...

Back to basics then!

Have you guys seen Barb's new collection? It's gorgeous. I know what's going on my Christmas list!
