I Love Nail Polish Winter collection - Review

Ready for some winter/holiday glitters? Then read on, because I received some great ones that'll surely put you in the mood for the season! :) The polishes that I'm talking about are from the Winter collection from I Love Nail Polish.

Normally I just post swatches, but I wanted to show you the packaging of these polishes as well. Does this packaging make you think of an Indie brand? No right? I think it looks great!



Brabra from ILNP really gave a lot of attention to the packaging of these polishes! It's always nice to have polishes delivered to your door, but these felt even more as a pressie. It's not necessary of course, but when you want to spoil yourself, this just adds to it, don't you think? :)


Every polish even has a matching label at the bottom, how cute is that!



But enough about the packaging now, because it's the polish that matters, so let's have a look at them! I swatched all the polishes on 2 different basecolors, to give you a better idea of how they look. My swatches are with 1 medium thick layer of glitter and a layer of top coat.


Once Upon A Starry Night

Different sizes and shapes of silver, blue, white and holographic glitters. It applied easy, no dabbing needed to get this coverage, but this polish has little stars in it and those I did need to fish out a bit. I thought those stars looked cute in the bottle but would maybe be a bit too much on my nails, but next time I'd add some more of those!

This polish mainly has gold, green and red glitters in different shapes, and there are some very fine holographic glitters in it as well. This one had a tiny bit of piling on the tips if I wasn't a bit more careful with the application, but nothing special. I used a less thick coat of this one compared to the others.

Gold, pink, teal, green and blue glitters, again in different shapes and sizes. Very colorful and layered over black I think it makes an excellent New Year's Eve mani! Easy application.

A finer mix of gold and copper glitters. Festive, warm and elegant, and as you can see, packed with glitters! It applied even and easy.

Green, light green, white and red, bottled Christmas with some snowflakes on top! The bigger glitters piled slightly, but with a gentle application it wasn't a problem at all.

Different shades and shapes of teal and white glitter, and some tiny holographic ones as well. And yes, slightly different photos of this one, the sun went away and I tested my new lamp with this polish. Need to mess with my camera a bit more, but I think it'll do =) Anyway, back to the polish. These polishes are all packed with glitter and this one was no exception, in fact, it was almost a bit too packed for my liking, haha.

And just because I think glitters always look so nice in the bottle, some bottleshots of these glitters :)


As I said above, these are packed with glitter and with all the different shapes I expected having to dab them on to get an even coverage, but that wasn't needed. Bonus points for the rubber cap which I liked a lot! I think it's a great collection, not only for this season :)

These polishes cost $10 for 12ml and you can buy them in the I Love Nail Polish Etsy Store. You can also follow ILNP on the matching blog.
