Swatches and review of ILNP – Diablo (Fall 2015)

When I first saw ILNP – Diablo I really wanted to have it. But apparently I wasn’t the only one. It was constantly out of stock during the whole Fall and Winter! By the time I finally got it, it was already Spring. I already wore it back then and shared it on my Instagram page, but I wasn’t that enthusiastic about it. Sure, it was a nice polish, but I’m always a little bit tired of red polishes after the Holidays. When I was digging through my stash and came across Diablo, I just knew I had to give it a second chance!

Diablo is a stunning dark red holographic polish. It has a jelly finish with a scattered holographic effect. Due to the jelly effect, I needed 3 coats to darken the color. I probably also could have gone with two, but I felt like some nails were a little bit patchy and that the color needed to be a little bit deeper. I absolutely did not mind needing 3 coats, because the polish was just so easy to apply!

I’ve tried to capture the full holographic effect in the pictures, but it was not that easy. I think that the polish is even prettier in real life than in the pictures. Many people called this polish their favorite polish of 2015 and I can definitely understand why. I think the complete Fall 2015 collection of ILNP was a must have! I’ve already shared Mona Lisa with you, but I definitely would not mind owning more polishes from that collection;)

Am I feeling different about Diablo know than I felt back in Spring? Definitely! I just wasn’t feeling like wearing reds back then. I bought mine around March at Hypnotic Polish¬†and I checked.. It is currently sold out again! Apparently the polish is a true bestseller! You can also always buy it from ILNP or any other stockist.
