I’m (not so) slowly extending my ILNP collection. They are just too gorgeous and I need them all! I already have a new order coming in! For now, one of my most recent purchases is ILNP – Ski lodge. ILNP released Ski lodge last winter. Ever since then, I was already dreaming about this polish, but I only bought it last month. But it was definitely worth the wait!

ILNP – Ski lodge is a dark green jelly. It contains scattered holographic particles and small golden flakes. I had to look really carefully for the golden flakes, because the holographic effect is so overwhelming. At first I was afraid that this polish was too close to being black. However, I find that the golden flakes lighten the color and make the polish look even more green.

The formula of Ski lodge was nice, but it was a little bit on the thin side. I really expected it to cover in two coats, since it is such a dark color. But since the formula is really thin, I ended up doing three coats. Even then I had to make my last coat a little bit thicker than I usually do. It wasn’t really a problem, since the polish dried very quick, it was just a little bit different from what I expected.

I really like Ski lodge. Somehow, it makes me feel really sophisticated. This polish is perfect for the holiday season, but to be honest, I also really like it for Fall. The holographic effect is super strong, as in most ILNP nail polishes as I have tried and I definitely find that Ski lodge is a perfect addition to my collection! I’ve bought Ski lodge at the dutch stockist, Hypnotic Polish, but for other stockist you can look at the website of ILNP itself.
