As most of you probably have figured out right now, I’m a big fan of the brand ILNP. So when I bought Private reserve from their New Year’s collection I also bought Looking up. ILNP released Looking up in their Winter collection, which is always released at the same time as their New year’s collection. I am a big fan of dark blue polishes with shimmer, so when I saw Looking up it was a no-brainer that I needed to have it.
Looking up is a dark blue polish with a metallic finish. Besides from that, it also contains small golden flakies and scattered holographic particles. The holographic effect is a little bit sparse in this polish. It becomes immediately clear why this polish is called Looking up. It looks exactly like a dark blue sky filled with stars. I’m really loving this look!
The coverage of Looking up was okay. The formula is like many other ILNP polishes, it is a little bit on the thin side. The polish is more or less opaque in two coats. But with three, it gets so much more deeper and beautiful. So I definitely recommend using three coats. I think it is also possible to layer this polish over a black polish, but I haven’t tried yet myself.
Well, again ILNP doesn’t disappoint! I think this polish is even one of my favorite polishes I have ever tried. Dark metallic blues are just one of my favorites ever and combined with gold flakes and holo, it is even more amazing! And I am sure that I’m not the only one that finds this polish truly mesmerizing.
You can buy Looking up directly from ILNP.com, but ILNP also has several stockists. I have bought mine at Hypnotic Polish, which is a stockist based in the Netherlands.
