Hi everyone!! Today I will be talking about Il Etait Un Vernis Spring 2016 – Tales Of Love collection*. It’s a spring collection with colours perfect for this time of year. Almost all of the colours have a pale touch and it’s what makes it spring.
They all have holographic particles and to make them more interesting Bé and Stephanie filled them with multi-coloured flakies that go from golden to coppery to pinkish. I actually thought there were iridescent particles in there, but then I read on line that those were multi-coloured. And they blend in so well with the main colour of the polish.
I think I have mentioned this in one of my previous posts that their brush is amazing. It’s one of my favourites. It is so easy to work with and it’s so easy around the cuticle area. And the bristles are always perfect.
And now to the review of the polishes.
A Thousand Kisses – Il Etait Un Vernis Spring 2016
It’s a perfect spring pastel pink with a bit of holo and those multi-coloured flakies. These flakies are pink/purple and very subtle. My camera couldn’t catch them, but they are there.
It needed two coats for full opacity. The polish was a bit streaky, but nothing I couldn’t handle. The result was still perfect.
Crazy Little Thing – Il Etait Un Vernis Spring 2016
Oh my, this is soooo beautiful. It is slightly more dusty and maroon-ish in person and full of the multi-coloured flakies. I think they are pink and coppery, at least that’s what I see.
I applied two easy coats to reach full opacity.
Spring In My Step – Il Etait Un Vernis Spring 2016
This polish kind of stands out in this collection, because the other colours are on the purple/pink side and this one is completely different. It’s a holographic muted pale turquoise filled with pink flakies.
And again it was opaque in two easy coats.
HOLO(VE) – Il Etait Un Vernis Spring 2016
Another gorgeous shade for me *_*. I’ve seen this colour in a polish before, but I still love it. It’s burgundy and it’s purple at the same time. Well, it’s maroon :). I love how the multi-coloured flakies blend in yet they still give the polish something extra.
Another perfect formula opaque in two coats.
Heart.Skips.A.Beat – Il Etait Un Vernis Spring 2016
I love the dots in the name and I love the polish. Isn’t it interesting how a small detail makes you happy and like the product even more.
It’s a dusty blurple in person full of pink and purple flakies that make it beautiful. But my camera made it way more blue than it actually is. And in this photo you can actually see the flakies in the bottle ♥.
It was opaque in two easy coats too.
So what do you think of this collection? I like it a lot. It’s a bit different from all the others and the most interesting part for me is how pastel the colours look, even the more vivid ones. And you know I love pastels this spring. Here they are, together in one picture.
Thank you for reading and see you in the next post. xoxo
