One of the reasons why I’m interested in indie makeup is unusual colours, special shimmer, shifting holo or shifting colours etc. ILNP Birefringence is a polish that fits the bill perfectly. ILNP is an American boutique nail polish brand that makes great multi chrome and holographic polishes. The first two ILNP polishes that I’ve bought are Happily Ever After, a silver lilac holographic polish with silver flakes, and My Private Rainbow (Linear + Scattered), a holographic top coat. In this post, however, I’ll review an absolute stunner called Birefringence.
Birefringence is a chromatic nail polish that shifts through blue, teal, violet, pink, purple and gold. It belongs to the brand’s collection of “ultra chrome” polishes that all magically shift from one colour to another. They don’t need a base colour to fully “pop”, which is certainly great for us impatient souls who can’t apply 3+ layers of polish and do nothing for long. 😉
November, probably the third* dullest month is gone and done. It’s finally got really cold outside and in my opinion that’s a good enough reason to stay indoors, drink copious amounts of tea and watch TV series. Really, why would anyone want to go outside to freeze their socks off?
However, there were some make-up, perfumes and skincare products that made getting ready for work (or going to sleep) much easier. This is my first favourites post, in which I will describe some things that I liked using the most in the past month. Enjoy the ride!
(Psst, there are swatches, too!)
In April 2016 the Australian company called Femme Fatale released the Enchanted Fables collection, which was inspired by heroines from numerous classic fairy tales.
As you’ve probably noticed already, I’m rather keen on alternative, independent beauty products. I discovered this post on Reddit a long while back and I decided to write a proper blog post about it in case anyone wondered why I decided to go down this rabbithole.
