Her Wrenn polishes are 5-free, vegan and cruelty-free and inspired by the druzy stones she uses in her jewelry. Let me say, they are gorgeous! Overall, the nail polish formula is superb. They apply easily and with no fuss. I was able to get great coverage in just two coats for the polishes that I swatched and I have six colors for you to see!

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!

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.

Coraline

Happy Halloween everyone! To celebrate, I painted Coraline. I was almost going to dress up as her for Halloween since I already have a cheese-whiz yellow rain coat, but I’m missing the yellow rainboots and a blue wig. Maybe next year :P

I used ILNP Black Orchid, a beautiful plum holographic as my base and complimented it with piCture pOlish Honey Dew, a bright mint green. Orange really doesn’t suit my skin tone, so I try to find alternatives to painting Halloween themed looks without using orange too much. :P

Purple Glitter Tape Mani

From Julep‘s July Maven 2014 box, I received Bombshell box that included Beverly (the beautiful dark purple creme pictured in this post) and Lissa (turquoise).

The formula for Beverly is pretty awesome. I have to say, in general, the formula in the more recent boxes have been a huge improvement in comparison to some of the boxes I received last year. This was fully opaque after 2 thin-medium coats and worked well as a base for my tape mani. The glitter I layered on top was from a sample I received in a purchase from Rainbow Honey in December, I haven’t seen it officially released on Rainbow Honey yet but I hope she does soon because it’s quite pretty. :)
