[Werbung / Advertisement – Samples] And all of a sudden it’s May and we are here learning about the ILNP Daydream Spring 2020 collection, launching on May 15th on ilnp.com.
Also, disclaimer time: all these photos were taken with artificial light, but no flash. I tried to get as true to color as possible, but as monitor settings vary there might be differences. Let’s just call those swatches „my truth“.
But now… let’s talk polish!
This extra sparkly holo bomb drew me in right away. Caroline is a rosy copper ultra holo with copper metallic flakes. The base has a slight hint of rose, but it is almost clear.
Therefore I needed three thin coats to get an opaque result, depending on light and angle a fourth one might have been nice. It dries quickly and with a smooth surface. I did add Topcoat for the photos, but it isn’t really necessary.
As beautiful as the flakes are, they are stubborn. I’d recommend to take your time with the application and avoid a cleanup.
When I first saw Full Bloom I was a bit worried how the soft peachy pink shade might look to my more olive skin tone, turns out – it looks great! I applied two medium coats. The shimmer in this one is incredibly soft, but still there and gives it a special touch. I am not sure if it feels so subtle because the other polishes are THAT much more holo.
This one would have fitted really well with the Nine To Five Collection too.
In The Clouds
This one really took me by surprise, because I usually don’t love super shimmery stuff, but this one got me daydream-ing. The base is a pale lilac holographic with a strong golden glowy shimmer.
With this one, you have all options, because it just applies that nicely. You could wear one coat and have the nail whites shine through or get an opaque result in 2-3 coats. Clean up with this one is not as easy, because the glitters are super stubborn.
I was a bit unlucky with this one and a weirdly twisted brush, but the application was still okay. It was opaque in two coats.
The very strong holographic pigments battles with a soft violet base and metallic copper flakes. So much, that you can hardly see the flakes.
Another one of those super intense holographic polishes in this collection is happy thoughts. The polish features a pea-green base.
The formula felt a lot thinner, but it was still easy to manipulate with the brush. Opacity took 3 coats though.
Serenity is my favorite and least favorite of the ILNP Daydream collection, both at the same time. The softer tones of the collection work together just fine, but this bright blue just makes the whole release feel less cohesive for me. This is just my personal opinion and shouldn’t matter though.
Application with this polish is AMAZING – with the right amount of polish on the brush, this is an one-coater.
What are your thoughts on the brand new ILNP Daydream collection? Do you like the shades? Will you buy? Let me know 🙂
