Hello everyone! Happy new year to you all! I hope you all had a wonderful new year’s eve and that 2017 becomes a beautiful year 🙂 Are you already tired of all glitter polishes? To be honest, I am a little bit, and I’m longing for a nice neutral shade! But first, I want to show you ILNP – Private Reserve. ILNP released this polish in their New Year’s collection and it is one of their UltraMetallics shades. That means it is a super reflective, holographic metallic polish. I’ve already shown you one before, which was called The Harpist.
Private Reserve is a dark grey polish, consisting of tiny metallic flakes and holographic sparkles. I expected this polish to be black, but it really is a dark grey. Although it belongs to the same range as The Harpist, I feel like this polish contains smaller flakes and contains a little bit less holographic particles. Nevertheless, it is really pretty and definitely suitable to wear to a New Year’s party!
The formula of Private Reserve was a little bit on the thin side. I am wearing three coats in these pictures, although I feel like it might have been better to use two thicker coats. I don’t really mind, since ILNP polishes always dry super fast. The removal was a little bit annoying, since the metallic flakes get everywhere, but it is not as annoying as glitter. To be honest, this polish is definitely worth the trouble! I can’t believe I was actually considering not getting it, because I thought it was not special enough. Stupid me!
You can buy ILNP Private Reserve directly from ILNP or from one of their stockist. I bought mine from Hypnotic Polish. And while you are there, you should definitely check out their other UltraMetallics polishes, because they are all really pretty!
