Il Etait Un Vernis – Licence to Polish

I’ve got some beautiful polishes to show you today all the way from France! Bérangère and Stéphanie are the co-founders and creators of a nail polish brand called Il Etait Un Vernis.

One of the main awesome things about these polishes are that they are 5-free and vegan. Yay! I’ve been more apt to wear polishes that are at least 3-free or more because I was pregnant last year and I wanted to be careful of what polishes I wore, though I didn’t leave the polishes on my nails for very long.

This new collection from Il Etait Un Vernis is called Licence to Polish, an elegant and non-traditional winter collection. The subtle holographic effect has so much life to it. Absolutely beautiful! I think what also made me love this polish is the fact that the formula was amazing! I had no trouble whatsoever and it was so easy to apply.

The collection includes a range of five different colors. Something strong and bold to something more light, sweet and airy. But each one packs a lot of punch with its holographic glitter effect. Loooove it!

We Want You for NPA Army

What a great army green for fall/winter. It has that edgy but feminine look especially with the gold flakes. It’s hard to find a good green to wear, but this one is totally wearable!

In Teal We Trust

I think this is my favorite of the collection. The dark teal is so intense and bold, yet so sparkly. This color will definitely stand out amongst the crowd.

Drop Dead Gorgeous

This is an espresso brown polish with gold glitter flakes. I’m not one to wear a bold brown if I had a choice, but the gold flakes definitely enhance this neutral color.

Juggling Glass Balls
3 coats and top coat

I had to add an extra layer of this polish due to the fact that the white/silver flakes are suspended in a transparent base. But it’s still easy to paint in three coats. This polish can also be worn as a topper over another polish. Imagine the possibilities!
