Il Etait Un Vernis – Végétal

The lovely ladies at Il Etait Un Vernis sent us another gorgeous collection! This one is called Végétal which translates to “vegetable” in English but generally means something more like “plant life” I think. We’re moving on from the cold winter into spring. That means new life, new growth, and everything is exploding with colors and scents.

This new collection is full of color and perfect for spring. Again, the formula is amazing. I really love how the polishes go on. You can find more information on their polishes here.

And now on to the polishes!

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.
