Review: ILNP Ultra Chrome Flakies - Part 2 (pic heavy)
Hope you're all well and your year started great! I've you've missed my last year's summary, you can catch up here.
I've managed to catch up on some swatching over the holidays and today I'm excited to show you the second half of the ILNP Ultra Chrome Flakies collection! The whole collection consists of 13 polishes in total and each has different flakies in them.

Atlantis - multichrome flakie polish shifting from blue through purple to red and burnt orange.
Cold Fusion - multichrome flakie polish shifting from light blue through darker blue shades, teal and green and to purple.
Metropolis - multichrome flakie polish shifting from purple and fuchsia shades to pink, blue and burnt orange.
Neon Rosebud - this multichrome flakie polish has it all! It shifts from fuchsia and purple through red, gold and gold green. Sometimes you'll see blue as well.
Brilliance - multichrome flakie polish shifting from greens, olive and golden green to hints of pink and blue.
Rapture - multichrome flakie polish with gold and olive green coloured flakies and hints of darker green and blue.
Open Fields - multichrome flakie polish shifting from vibrant greens through hints of gold, teal to a bit of blue.
Beautiful, aren't they? All swatches are one coat over black base and no topcoat. My top picks are Neon Rosebud, Brilliance and Cold Fusion.
I still have he same thing to say about these polishes as in the first review - all of these flakie polishes have exactly the same formula. They applied very nicely and they lay flat on the nails so there is no rough surface. With a coat of topcoat you'll have a smooth finish. They dried fast and glossy. The flakies are in a clear base and the bottle is packed so you get a nice amount of them on the brush. In my opinion they are best layered over a polish because it takes 3-4 coats to get full opacity (although I don't doubt it would look spectacular). You can also layer different shades to get multi-coloured mix of flakies which gives you a lot of new options to try!
"Every 12ml bottle is created by hand, with love, in the USA.
