ILNP Fall 2015 Collection Pt. 2 [Swatch] [Review] & [Comparison]

Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday!

Today I've got Part 2 and five more polishes from ILNP's Fall 2015 collection to share with you! These are the warmer-toned holographic/ holo mixes in the collection! If you missed Part 1, featuring the cool-toned holos, it is here!  (Bottle shots are in the Mail-time post, here.)

There are also a couple comparisons at the end, so stay tuned!

First, here is  ILNP- Mona Lisa:

Mona Lisa is a medium brown Ultra Holo that leans a little taupe.

Artificial light, two coats:

I think that the holographic particles lighting up make this lean a little cool or purple. It's a really nice effect, and I loved this polish more than I thought I would!

Formula: It's nice! You can have this opaque in two or three coats depending on polishing style. I used only two for swatches, and it applies easily and smoothly like the other Ultra Holos!

Next, a surprise for a Fall collection, ILNP- Dream Girl:

Dream Girl is a pale, cool pink Ultra Holo.

Artificial light, three coats:

The holographic effect in this one is very strong, I think due to the paler color. It's really lovely!

Formula: It's like other Ultra Holo formulas I've tried: smooth, self-leveling, and easy to control. This is a little on the sheer side, but dries down quickly, builds well, and because the holo is so strong, you could wear it at two coats easily if you wanted. I used three for swatches!

Next, one so many people are excited for,  ILNP- Pretty Little Liar:

Pretty Little Liar is a vampy, warm-toned plum holographic. I guess you could also consider this a very cool-toned, deep berry too.

Artificial light,two coats:

I love this color on my skin tone! It's just kind of sexy...and juicy??

Formula: It's smooth and easy to apply with good pigmentation. Opaque in two easy coats!

Next, here is  ILNP-Diablo:

Diablo is a deep burgundy holographic.  It's like the redder/ less purple cousin of Pretty Little Liar! It's a really nice balance between red and brown. Perfect for the season!

Artificial light, two coats:

Mmmm! Love this one too!

Formula: It's rich and pigmented, smooth to apply. Easily opaque in two coats- no complaints!

Finally, for today,  ILNP- Overnight Bag:

Overnight Bag is a red-toned deep brown. It could also be considered a very brownish burgundy, but is much darker than Diablo- and browner. It has the same gold/ bronze flake that Mountain View and After Midnight have, giving it a special little twist!

Artificial light, two coats:

Gosh! I love this one as well! It's so intriguing, and as a fan of brown polish in general...I just can't. If you like deep browns, or vampy reddish browns, you need this!

Check out the gold flake!

I can't wait to wear this as a full manicure!

Formula: It's very similar to After Midnight and Mountain view, the other two holo shades with gold flake. It's slightly on the sheerer side, but very buildable, smooth, and opaque in two coats. Nice!

Comparison Time!

Mona Lisa is a bit similar in color to A England- Virgin Queen, but the holo finishes are much different, as you can see. There's just something about that Ultra Holo flake that makes the finish so dimensional!

Dream Girl is the coolest-toned pale pink holo (if you don't count Dreaming in Violet..which is more of a purple) in my collection, and I didn't find an exact dupe for it!

(You can middle click the image to open a larger version in a new tab.)

As you can tell, I really love deep purples and burgundies! I didn't find any dupes, though! Pretty Little Liar is definitely close in color to Picture Polish- Desire, but the holo finishes are different, and I prefer the chunkier ILNP. Zoya- Payton is much deeper than Pretty Little Liar.

I thought Diablo was going to be more similar than it is to Zoya- Blaze, but wow- Blaze is much redder and lighter! Overnight Bag looks so brown compared to all these burgundies which contain more purple, but I promise you that it actually has a nice red undertone!

Overall, these polishes also live up to my lofty expectations- just like the previous five! These particular five are even more appropriate for the Fall season, I think! (I love vampy reds and burgundies in Fall!) The formulas on all were excellent. (But what else is to be expected?) If I had to pick a favorite from this set...I would have to say Overnight Bag, although Pretty Little Liar looks really nice on pale, cool-toned skin I think!

Available for pre-order Friday, Sept. 4th | | $9
