I LOVE NAIL POLISH (ILNP) Cygnus Loop (H) Swatch and Review

Hello lovelies,

Today I have prepared the most fabulous nail polish I have. It is I Love Nail Polish ultrachrome in the shade Cygnus Loop (H). I love regular ultrachromes, but ultrachromes infused with holographic pigment are so fab I can’t even…

So far I have two regular ultrachromes: Birefringence and Mutagen. When I got them, I actually wasn’t 100% sure about whether to pick Birefringence or Cygnus Loop because they are very similar. Back then I picked Birefringence and it was Cygnus Loop’s turn this time. By the way, the only difference is that Birefringence is more blue based, while Cygnus Loop is more purple.

Anyway, back to Cygnus Loop (H). It is a deep purple based multichrome which mainly shifts to blue, orange, fuchsia pink and reddish gold colours. If you put it under water, you can also see green and dirty yellow. When you look at the bottle, the holo effect looks scattered, but on the nails Cygnus Loop (H) is a linear holographic; however, the linear holo effect is not as strong as with Color Club holo polishes.

The nail polish is very sheer and patchy in one coat, but two coats are perfect – completely opaque and even. You can also put one coat over black – the effect will be the same and you save some polish.

I Love Nail Polish ultrachromes retail for $12.50, but I got mine during a pre-order for $11.50. Each polish comes in a paper box and the presentation itself is very high-end. I also have to thank Barbra (the owner of the brand) for devising a perfect pre-order system which ensures that everyone is able to get their hands on the nail polish. The shipping to Croatia is a bit expensive: $13.50 for one or two nail polishes, $15.50 for three to four.

By the way, the new Christmas collection is available for pre-order (the prices are a bit lower – holographic for $9, ultrachrome for $11.50) on ILNP page. Jump to the site to get yours, I already got mine :)

Za danas sam pripremila swatch najdivnijeg laka za nokte koji posjedujem. Radi se o I Love Nail Polish ultrachrome laku za nokte  u nijansi Cygnus Loop (H). Obožavam klasične ultrachrome lakove, ali začinjeni holo pigmentom je posve nova razina fantastičnosti.

Trenutno imam dva ultrachrome laka: Birefringence i Mutagen. Kad sam ih naručivala zapravo sam se dvoumila želim li Birefringence ili Cygnus Loop jer su jako slični (jedina je razlika u tome da Birefringence vuče na plavo, a Cygnus Loop na ljubičasto). Budući da sam tada odabrala Birefringence, ovaj je put Cygnus Loop došao na red.

Cygnus Loop (H) je ljubičasti multichrome koji se prelijeva u plavo, narančasto, fukcija rozo i crveno zlatnu boju. Ukoliko ga uronite pod vodu, do izražaja još dolaze zelena i prljavo žuta. U boci holo efekt izgleda razbacano, ali na noktima je Cygnus Loop (H) linearno holo iako linearni efekt nije toliko izražen kao kod, npr., Color Club holo lakova.

Lak je dosta rijedak i prvi se sloj neravnomjerno nanosi, ali drugi sloj laka sve to poravna. Ukoliko želite uštedjeti lak, stavite jedan sloj preko crnog – efekt će biti isti.

I Love Nail Polish Ultrachrome lakovi koštaju 12.50 dolara, ali sam ja svoj naručila pred-narudžbom kada je koštao 11.50 dolara. Svaki lak dolazi u krasnoj kartonskoj kutijici. Želim se zahvaliti vlasnici Brenda Barbri na smišljanju savršenog sistema za naručivanje koji osigurava da svatko dobije svoj primjerak laka bez rušenja stranice baš u trenutku kad želite platiti ili nemogućnosti da se uopće ulogirate na stranicu. Poštarina za Hrvatsku je dosta skupa – mislim da dođe 13.50 dolara za jedan ili dva laka, a 15.50 dolara za tri ili četiri laka.

Inače, na ILNP stranici započele su pred-narudžbe božićne kolekcije, te su ti lakovi sad malo jeftiniji (holo dođe 9 dolara, a multichrome 11.50 dolara). A sad hop na stranicu po vase primjerke, ja sam svoje već naručila. :)

Here are the swatches: 2 coats and Sally Hansen InstaDri top coat:
