A few months ago, I boldly declared that one of ILNP’s spring collection polishes was my “new favorite ever.” Being a polish addict, I’d say that this happens at least once a month, but the gorgeous holo and silver flakies of “Happily Ever After” (reviewed here) really stuck with me. So when I saw that ILNP’s summer collection had several color colors with the same unique finishes, I had to have them. (“Gotta catch ’em all!”) today I’ve got “Pink Mimosa,” a light pink cousin of “Happily Ever After.”
Mmm, this may not surprise you, but I love it. It is just so super duper ultra blingy in-your-face holo. I can be sitting on my couch in my dark apartment (hey, it’s hot here) and my nails are just rainbowing away. Stand in the sun and you risk going blind like mountain climbers in the snow.
The formula on this is top notch. I’m going to put this in the highly coveted category of “paints itself on.” I used two smooth coats here for full opacity. Two! What sort of sorcery are they up to over there at ILNP’s Vegas headquarters?
From the moment it landed on my doorstep, I just wanted to get Pink Mimosa on my nails as fast as possible. But, I did promise that July would be a month of nail art, so I cooled my jets for a minute and added a stamped accent. I used Colors by Llarowe “Pirates of Penzance” (reviewed here) and the Bundle Monster BM-XL10 stamping plate to add a paisley design that reminded me of summery bandanas.
If you’re anywhere near as infatuated as I am, I suggest that you check out ILNP’s website for “Pink Mimosa” and its cousins (Happily Ever After, Fame, Money Bin, and Shoreline). They are 100% worth it!
