Opal Sunset

ILNP Opal Sunset Holographic Jelly Nail Polish ($10.00 for 0.4 oz.) has a mid-tone, brighter pink jelly base with intensely shifting sparkle that went from warmer gold to chartreuse to lime green and also had holographic sparkle, though the shifting sparkle was most dominant. The overall impact of the combination of sparkles made the base color look warmer pink and rosy lavender, depending on the angle. The texture was smooth, fluid, and had the expected plusher, jelly-like look after two coats.

Per the brand, it has its maximum coverage in two to three coats. In the swatches, I’ve applied two coats and then one layer of Zoya Armor top coat, which was mostly opaque, so a third coat would achieve full opacity–in person, two seemed perfect given it was a jelly finish (so that squishy, translucency is distinctive). I wore this shade for 10 days and had minor tip wear and no chips with Zoya Anchor Base Coat and Zoya Armor top coat.

Formula Overview

$10.00/0.4 oz. – $25.00 Per Ounce

The brand has several finishes, though some overlap, and they primarily have polishes with some shimmer to them, which often includes holographic, duochromatic, or multichromatic shimmer and effects.

The majority of shades specifically list how many coats are necessary for full coverage, which typically ranged from two to three, though a few went as high as four coats; the jelly finish, as expected, tended to be the sheerest. I found that what was stated was typically accurate to opacity performance. Most shades needed two coats for even (and/or opaque) coverage.

More metallic shades–often multichromes–had barely visible brush strokes from a normal viewing distance (as compared to a close-up photo, which is magnified). An additional coat sometimes made these even less noticeable, and then a good layer of top coat further reduced the visibility.

Both the holographic and multichrome shades presented with visible shifts and even dispersion of holographic shimmer/sparkle. Some of the multichrome shades had less contrasting shifts, so the effect wasn’t as strong head-on (e.g. shifting between blue to violet to warmer purple) but readily visible just glancing at my nails resting on the desk and so on. Many shades had finer pearl/shimmer, which danced and caught the light beautifully but ensured a smooth texture and easier removal.

The formula tended to have a light to light-medium viscosity to it, which ensured fluid, more even coverage without being thick, goopy, or so thin that it dried down as one applied it to nail. Some of the black-based shimmer shades seemed to be a little thinner relative to the jelly or multichrome finishes. Most shades self-leveled and hid my more ridged nails, though a good base and top coat would be ideal. Overall, the polishes were smooth and easy to work with, while the brush itself wasn’t too wide nor too narrow, though I had to be most careful working with some of the richer shades on my pinky!

The drying time seemed average; I was able to add a second (and/or third) coat after I had done the other nails on my hand. I would give the Multichromes a little extra time to dry down just to ensure the least visible brush strokes in the end result, though. For the more sparkly and textured shades, like the glitters, I felt like a top coat really helped to bring everything together to give the end result a shiny, plush effect.

Of the shades I’ve done full wear tests for (about 20 shades at the time of writing the overview), none of them have chipped over the course of a week. I’ve had minor tip wear across the board with some shades having very minor tip wear at that.

That being said, it’s typical for me to have polish last a week or longer on me, though, and I have not personally had issues with finding a formula that wears a week with minor tip wear but no chipping. The primary source of tip wear likely comes from typing on the computer, though I also open small, paper cartons and peel off labels routinely when opening new products (for review).

Pink Flamingo

ILNP Pink Flamingo Holographic Jelly Nail Polish ($10.00 for 0.4 oz.) has a brighter, medium pink (with warmer undertones) base with medium-sized flakes of green-to-gold shifting sparkle and finer holographic pearl throughout. The polish applied evenly with each coat and had good dispersion of the shimmer/sparkle as the texture was fluid, smooth, and easy to work with.

Per the brand, it has its maximum coverage in two to three coats. In the swatches, I’ve applied two coats and then one layer of Zoya Armor top coat, which yielded opaque coverage. I wore this shade for 10 days and had minor tip wear and no chips with Zoya Anchor Base Coat and Zoya Armor top coat.

Champagne Blush

ILNP Champagne Blush Holographic Shimmer Nail Polish ($12.50 for 0.4 oz.) has a medium pink, slightly warm-toned base with fine gold and holographic pearl throughout. The shimmer seemed quite fine to me, so it appeared smoother in its shine and reflective qualities than a flakier particle.

The texture was smooth, fluid without pooling or flooding the nail bed easily, and easy to maneuver for even coats. The brand didn’t specify how many coats for maximum coverage, though this finish seems to be two to three for other shades. In the swatches, I’ve applied two coats and then one layer of Zoya Armor top coat, which was sufficient for full coverage. I wore this shade for 10 days and had minor tip wear and no chips with Zoya Anchor Base Coat and Zoya Armor top coat.
