ILNP Courtyard Collection Swatches & Live Swatch

Hello!

Today I have the Courtyard Collection by ILNP to share with you! This is ILNP's first 2022 collection and it is full of beautiful and different finishes. Make sure to check out Harlow & Co for this collection starting on March 4th!

Here is what ILNP had to say about the collection:

The Courtyard Collection is a set of 6 beautifully refined shades with formulas ranging from holographic to metallic to speckled. Reminiscent of a serene garden comprised of fragrant florals, cobblestone paths, and a flowing fountain, the Courtyard Collection paints a scene of a serene stroll through a lively courtyard.


At first I was a little confused by the colour story, but seeing them all together in the collage makes it a little less confusing. The blue definitely invokes a serene feeling of water glinting in the sunlight and I actually love the soft pink with the golden flecks. 😍

Just note that my swatches are all 2 coats and no top coat.

Let's get into the pictures!

Harmony is a light rosy mauve with a delicate holographic effect. Harmony is a sophisticated creamy mauve further enhanced with a delicate dusting of holographic pigment. Inspired by blossoming floral in the Spring, Harmony carefully balances a rose-tinged hue with a subtle twinkling effect.

The holo scattering is so delicate in this gorgeous soft pink creme. I guess a 3rd coat would be needed for a more opaque coverage but the shade is to die for!





Pebble Path is an antique brass Ultra Metallic™ nail polish. Inundated with incredibly reflective silver metallic flakes, an array of prismatic holographic micro-flakes intensify as every stroke leads you to an awe-inspiring sparkle. As lively in the sun as it is indoors, Pebble Path’s unique brass base will have you doing a double-take!

So I'm in love with the ultra metallics from ILNP. I can't help it! It feeds my need for sparklies and this one is no exception! 😍






Sundress is a pastel speckled nail polish with blue metallic flakes sprinkled throughout. Take a stroll through the courtyard wearing Sundress! A creamy ivory base is playfully sprinkled with radiant blue metallic flakes. A vintage-inspired color pairing, Sundress is a beautifully refined shade with an unmistakable contrast!

The blue flakes is what really got me. I wasn't expecting it to be so shiny and vibrant! 💙





Penelope is a creamy pale pink accented with gold metallic flakes. Delicate and light, Penelope’s soft pink base is sure to leave you delighted! Complemented by a precise ratio of warm golden metallic flakes woven between layers of a pastel pink hue, Penelope’s creamy formula effortlessly glides on the nail!

I absolutely ADORE this one 😍 The combination of this perfect pink shade and golden flakes is so heart-breakingly beautiful and elegant! 😭 (happy tears!)




Morning Dew is a khaki green with a scattered holographic jelly finish. Taking inspiration from the quaint greenery in an earthy garden, a fresh green hue intertwines with droplets of gleaming holographic micro-flakes. Subdued and charming, Morning Dew’s unique tone and sparkling holographic finish create a distinguished shade.






And lastly, Good Mornings is a radiant teal holographic jelly nail polish. A lively teal jelly base, Good Mornings is loaded with an assortment of vivid blue metallic flakes. Look closely and you’ll catch a glimpse of vibrant green sparkle alongside a touch of gleaming holographic micro-flakes! Inspired by the glimmering water flowing through a garden fountain, Good Mornings showcases an incredible finish full of radiance and depth!

Another beauty that will entrance you with it's calming shade and holographic sparklies. Do I like jellies? Not particularly. Do I like ILNP jellies that are full of holographic goodness? YES - I'm only human! 😭 (more happy tears) 😁




Here is my live swatch video from my YouTube channel:
