Hello everyone. I hope you are all doing well. Today on the blog we are going to talk about Il Était Un Vernis Back to School Collection. Il Était Un Vernis has to be one of my favorite indie brands. It makes it even special that it’s an European brand, with most of the indie nail polish brands being American. Back to school collection consists of 5 nail polishes in beautiful colors and finishes. I’d say the girls did it again!
Il Était Un Vernis Back to School polishes are great quality with amazing formula (like all of their polishes!). It’s a pleasure to work with these polishes and they are easy to apply. Small, flat brush makes the application even and easy. I swatches all polishes with a base coat, topped with a layer of top coat.
Wild and Free is a weathered cornflower blue with a slight shimmer (blue with a pink glow) and a holographic effect. It’s a beautiful shade of blue that fits perfectly for the fall season. I applied two coats.
Field Trip Fun is is a purple color with greyish brown undertones that reveals thousands of copper flakies in its holographic base. What a beautiful and unique color. It changes slightly depending on the light. I applied two coats plus top coat.
My Area of Expertise is a dark teal color with pink flakies and a some velvety holographic particles. Stunning teal, that I like to call a ‘bottle green’. It’s such a deep and elegant color. I applied two coats plus top coat.
Teach Me Tonight is an ink blue base, its metallic shimmers catch the light to reflect sometimes gold, copper and even pink hues. It’s topped with some holographic particles. It’s such a gorgeous, not-obvious color and finish! It’s absolutely amazing and has to be a favorite of mine from this collection. It really changes depending on the light and sometimes it’s more blue, while other times more red. I have three thin coats.
Is It Monday Yet? is an espresso shade with red undertones with copper highlights and silver flakies. This color was incredibly difficult to capture and I took so many pictures, but my camera had big trouble. It’s a beautiful color and brown holos seems to be very popular this year. I applied two coats plus top coat.
