Valentina is from Summer Shimmers 2016 Collection. It's a sheer teal/turquoise jelly. It cannot be built up to full opacity. I remember seeing a swatch of Valentina over another ILNP polish, called Super Juiced and I have fallen in love with that picture and wanted this polish ever since. However, this is my most disappointing ILNP polish to date. I used it as a topper (I am not a fan of this polish on its own). Although my base polish wasn't the aforementioned Super Juiced, it was a very similar shade by China Glaze. And although the result was pretty (see my picture), it wasn't as transformingly mesmerising as I expected. I tried it over a couple of other colours, but none looked as good as I hoped. For me Valentine is a no-no as a polish in its own right and I am not keen on it as a topper, so definitely would not repurchase (in fact, unlikely to ever use it again).

️Super-gorgeous!!!! I'm still new to the brand ILNP, but it's easy to see why people love them so much. Cityscape is a black jelly polish that is densely packed with sparkly holographic microglitter. And with the jelly formula, the glitter really shines through and doesn't get buried. It looks so beautiful on the nail! So much fun to wear. This is basically what I had hoped Zoya Storm would be, and I love it.Great formula as well. Not thick at all, very smooth application. Opaque in 2 coats.It looks AMAZING on the nail and I'd definitely buy this one again!!! Highly Recommended!! A++++

STUNNING!!! So gorgeous!! This is my first polish from the brand ILNP, and I can see why people love them so much. Hi-Fi is a super-vivd purple metallic foil polish from their Ultra Metallic Brights Collection. The color is so rich and pigmented! I own a fair amount of metallic nail polishes, but none of them look like this. Usually purple metallics have so much silver in them that they end up looking like a silvery lavender. And then there are the "almost-metallic" purples, but those are really just shimmer polishes. But this one, Hi-Fi, is a truly metallic purple. And I love it.Great formula as well. Not thick at all, very smooth application. Opaque in 2 coats.It looks AMAZING on the nail and I'd definitely buy this one again!!! Highly Recommended!! A++++

Black Orchid is a very deep maroon with red, gold & iridescent sparkles and shows up dark plum with iridescent sparkle in the bottle. In some light it shows up black and in others, dark maroon. Wear time over Stickey base coat and with Fast & Hard topcoat from Vibrant Vinyls [indie polish maker] is pretty decent. I'm not too hard on my hands and haven't seen any chipping or much tip wear. I'm VERY pale and this might be a bit too dark for my skin tone. I do like it a lot, so maybe it'll take a bit of getting used to. What I really like is seeing the different shades and colors showing up under different lights which is one reason I like indie polishes like ILNP. I said "no" for a rebuy but I'd rather have it as "maybe" because this is a good winter time polish.

This magic topper is a beauty and looks great layered over so many different shades. It's a red to gold to green sheer top coat that changes with light's angles on your nails. I especially loved one coat of ILNP Scarlet over two coats of Essie Devil's Advocate, a super dark raisin purple, sealed with Seche Vite.It was also gorgeous over a one-dimensional, cheap black polish; a light navy, Smith + Cult's Kings and Thieves; and the new ILNP Black Orchid, which was a bit dull without the extra pizzazz and fire of Scarlet.Can't wait to see how it looks over other polishes!
