Illyrian Polish Winter 2016 Collection: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review
Hey guys! For today I have Illyrian Polish's Winter 2016 Collection, all inspired by the song "Cosmic Love" by Florence + the Machine. This collection will be released as a pre-order from Friday, December 9th, starting at 6 pm CST until Sunday December 11th at 11 pm CST in Illyrian Polish's shop. Pre-orders will ship by December 19th. 


Illyrian Polish The Moon
Two coats
Dusky gray linear holographic
Simple and crisp and altogether lovely. It's a creme based holo so it has a lower density holo flame.

Illyrian Polish The Stars
Three coats
Dark teal blue jelly with tiny holographic micro-glitter
A wonderful starry night sky polish with those holo glitter bits. It's opaque in two coats but I did a third one, I found that it deepened the color just a bit more.

Illyrian Polish Darkness
Two coats
Deep grape purple creme with strong red shimmer
Holy crap, will you look at that shimmer? It's my favorite copper/red shimmer and it looks amazing in this base. The purple itself lean slightly blue in my photos, it's a bit more purple in person. Nice opaque application, this is two coats.

Illyrian Polish In This Twilight 
Three coats
Purple tinted base with green to red color-shifting iridescent glitter and purple shimmer flecks
So pretty and magical. It's a sheerish polish so I did three coats over a ridge builder base and you can see that I have some visible nail line still. I don't mind it though, I think the over-all look is gorgeous but if you prefer to have it be completely opaque, you may want to layer it. Black or another darker color would look amazing, if you do layer it, because of the iridescent glitter.

Illyrian Polish Shadow of Your Heart
Two coats
Plum red base with a strong orange metallic shimmer and black iridescent flakes
Oh yes, exactly what I love. Bold and glowing red. You can see the flakes a bit more clearly with the matte topcoat. Easy application, opaque in two coats.
