ILNP Black Orchid (3 coats, direct LED daylight to show holo goodness)
Hi guys! I know, no Nibs & Nails again this week. No worries, I still have several more brands/inks/giveaways coming so don't despair! Can I just say that I'm happy it's Friday? This week seemed to drag on for some reason. I'm leaving for Dallas to work at the Dallas Pen Show, so if you're in the Dallas area, come say hi! It's only fitting to show ILNP's Black Orchid tonight because I was given this polish by a fellow pen/ink lover, Ana! Ana is the mastermind behind the blog The Well Appointed Desk. Once she found out I had a nail polish blog we instantly became friends. While at the DC Pen Show this year, Ana was kind enough to give me a few indie brand polishes I haven't already featured on the blog. Yes, I finally know someone in real life who loves indie brand polishes! Please stop by her blog to support another polish/pen/ink lover.
Black Orchid comes from the Fall 2014 Collection from ILNP. I just received an e-mail today about the Fall 2016 pre-order that goes until Sept. 23rd. They are a reputable brand known for their holo, multichrome, and flake polishes. Black Orchid is a vampy burgundy holo with strong purple undertones. Come on, that holo finish! I think you need another purple holo in your life and its name is Black Orchid. I ended up using 3 coats for my photos above, but you should be able to get away with 2. The formula was smooth and perfect, so no need to worry about streaking or flooded cuticles.
Black Orchid is still on sale for $10 at the ILNP website. Make sure to check out the Fall 2016 collection while you're there. You can find out more about INLP on their Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter pages. Have a great weekend!
