Something to Remember

Like Rathy mentioned in her previous post, we were sent some beautiful polishes from Il Etait Un Vernis to try. The formula for these were absolutely excellent and a charm to work with. I think my favorite of the bunch would have to be Something To Remember. I love this mauve-y purple color, and thought it would look perfect with a little accent of gold. I tried some nail stamping for the first time using Born Pretty’s stamping plate item #17266.

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.

Penguins and Gold Snowflakes

I just received these adorable Born Pretty Snowflake decals just in time for some cute winter nail art. These were delicate but sturdy decals, and I handled them mainly with a pair of tweezers. I did have to press them down a bit against my nail with an orange stick and sealed them with a nice layer of top coat.

I thought the gold would look nice against a soft almost white gray so I decided to go with this gorgeous piCture pOlish Lakodom, packed with a ton of subtle micro-glitter. It took me 3 coats to reach full opacity, the formula was easy to work with and did not clump up at all. Yet another excellent polish from the ladies at piCture pOlish

On my middle two fingers I used piCture pOlish Bette to create a gradient for the background of my penguins. I free-handed the penguins using Julep Daria, Julep Winter, China Glaze Liquid Leather, and China Glaze Snow.

I’ve recently developed an obsession for holographic nail polish as it is beautiful under the sunlight as well as to photograph. The one featured here is ILNP Iconic on my thumb. It’s a soft, exquisite gold holographic. It may look like your normal typical gold in the shade, but bam! When you see it under direct light, this polish just comes to life. :love:
