Illyrian Polish was kind enough to send me a stunning sample of their polishes. I have eight gorgeous Illyrian shades to share with you today!
First up is “Jet Fuel”! Jet fuel has a medium purple crelly base and is packed with a rainbow mix of gorgeous flakies plus bright green shimmer. This shade was opaque for me in two easy coats of polish.
This stunning blue is “Jupiter”. Jupiter has a mauve-toned purple base with mega-intense bright blue shimmer that takes over the entire polish. I used three thin coats of polish for my swatches and would recommend using straight brush strokes to avoid any obvious brush strokes on the nail.
“Ghost Train” is hands down my favorite Illyrian shade to date! This is such a unique and stunning polish. Ghost Train has a forest green jelly base and is packed with a rainbow mix of flakies plus a pink to gold magnetic effect. To create this strong magnetic effect, hold your polish magnet over the nail while the polish is still wet for 20-30 seconds. Repeat after top coat to maintain the thin magnetic line!
“Space Queen” has a blue-leaning teal jelly base that is packed with green-yellow-orange shifting iridescent flakies. This shade is opaque in 2-3 coats of polish.
This stunning multichrome is “Northern Lights”. This shade shifts from blue to teal to purple and is packed with multicolored flakies, holographic glitters, and gorgeous holographic shimmer. This shade was easily opaque in two coats of polish for me.
Another one of my favorites from this collection is “Lodi Dodi”. Be still my purple-loving heart! Lodi Dodi has a light orchid purple base with intense pink shimmer that shifts golden around the edges. There is also a light dusting of holographic shimmer. This shade was opaque for me in 2-3 coats of polish.
“Day Tripper” is a stunning periwinkle holographic with bright blue to bright green shifting shimmer, plus a mixture of holographic glitters and shimmers, and iridescent microflakies. This shade was opaque in two coats of polish.
Flakie lovers need “Bubblegum” in their collections! Bubblegum is a gorgeous rainbow flakie topper. My swatches show two coats of Bubblegum over my bare nail on my thumbnail and ring finger nail. On all other nails, my swatches show one coat of Bubblegum over my favorite one-coat black, “Squid Ink” from 1850 Artisan Polish. I was blown away by the amount of flakies Bubblegum offers in just ONE coat of polish!
