Baroness X Dreamscape Part II shines!

I have been dying to get this review out to my lovely readers for a couple of weeks now. I received this set right at Christmastime and I was also recovering from being sick most of December. My sweet hubby just has double carpal tunnel surgery the other day, well, on our anniversary! Needless to say, we are healing up nicely, my company has departed and the dust has settled in our house. ūüėČ I’m so excited to finally share these four gorgeous polishes with you. The Baroness X Dreamscape Part II collection is a simply put, “DREAMY”! Let’s take a look at these fabulous indie creations!

The Dreamscape Pt. II collection is a set of 4 iridescent shifty micro flakies and thin metallic shard glitter polishes. Opacity: use 1-2 coats as a topper over any color you'd like, looks best over black or complimenting darker colors. From left/rear: Dynastic, Phantasmic, Surrealistic and Etheric.

The formulas are smooth and glide nicely over any basecoat (and it is recommended that you use a deep, dark or black underneath to really show how these babies pop). They dry fairly smooth and I recommend a thin topcoat. They wear really well. After swatching all four of these, I wore one of them for full week, plus a couple of days. Although easy to remove, I had very little tip wear and no chipping. On with the Dreamscapes!

First up, Etheric!

Etheric seems like it was made for a glossy black undercoat. Shown here is one thin coat over Chloe & Bella "Blackout".

Etheric is described as: "Etheric is a glass flakie polish with fuchsia glitter shards. The flakies are a larger size which promotes a strong multichrome effect. Facing forward you can see a bright teal and it shifts over to blue, purple and then fuchsia. You can wear this on it's own but it looks great over black or complimenting colors."

Dynastic is a dynamo!

Dynastic shines golden with clever green/gold shifts over a deep blackened mahogany red by OPI, "I Sing in Color".

Phantasmic is like peering into the Caribbean!

Phantasmic gives off a mermaidy sheen...a really fluid shade shifter. Here I used one thin coat over "Poison Ivy", a deep blackened green shimmer by Wet 'N Wild.

And Surrealistic is stunning!

Surrealistic simply glows over black polish! Here I used one coat over "Blackout" and topcoated with "Crystal Clear" by Chloe & Bella.

Facing forward you can see a pink leaning purple and it shifts over to orange/amber or gold. You can wear this on it's own but it looks great over black or complimenting colors."

I love how Demi includes glass buttons on the lid tops. Great for when you've got your giant Baroness X collection all crowded into a helmer drawer! The Dreamscape Pt. II collection, from left: Etheric, Dynastic, Phantasmic and Surrealistic.

ILNP Shoreline from the Summer 2015 Collection

I’m down to the wire with my last couple of swatches from the indie polish maker, ILNP Summer 2015 collection! I’m sorry I had to drag this out. The Summer release from ILNP was quite huge and I have been in the middle of a move this summer. And now the Fall Collection is rearing its gorgeous head so I have GOT TO get with it! Anyway, today I’m sharing a gorgeous metallic flake polish, opaque in two coats stunner called Shoreline by ILNP. Let’s take a look.

Shore line gave me fits trying to photograph her as I see her in real life. She is a beachy pale aqua and all I can say is, she changes! I used two coats. Here is how ILNP describes her. "Shoreline is definitely a statement polish! Loaded with silver flakes and magical holographic sparkle, this delicate pale aqua shade is as exciting as they come! Look closely and you may even notice a bit of pink shimmer! Indoors and outdoors, Shoreline is pure magic."

I think this could definitely be a crossover shade/finish in that it will be a frosty polish for mid-winter as well! It sells for $10 at ILNP here. ILNP! Here is a macro!

I reached full opacity in 2 coats, added a topcoat but it shines on it's own. Look at those shards! Wow!

Coming up from ILNP I’ll be swatching and reviewing the last two…finally! Money Bin and Pink Mimosa. Then be on the lookout for my swatches of Barbra’s upcoming Fall Collection. Sneak peeks are popping up on her Facebook and Instagram pages and I’m fully stalking my mailman! LOL

Here are a few fabulous facts for your shopping pleasure.

What is your vegan/cruelty free policy?
ILNP absolutely does not test our products on animals nor do we purchase materials from suppliers that do. We make a conscious effort to avoid purchasing animal/insect derived materials like carmine and guanine/pearl, etc. as there are plenty of synthetic alternatives that perform the same or even better.

Are your nail polishes 3-Free?
Yes! All ILNP nail polishes are 3 free! They DO NOT contain Toluene, Formaldehyde, or Dibutyl Phthalate.

What does 3-Free mean?
3-Free means that our nail polishes do not contain Toluene, Formaldehyde, or Dibutyl Phthalate. These 3 ingredients were previously used in most nail polish formulations until recent studies found them to be potentially harmful or irritable to humans. While these chemicals aren‚Äôt illegal to use in nail polish (although California law requires special labeling if used), most large brands have already moved to 3-Free formulas at the urge of educated consumers as well as organizations that campaign for safe cosmetics.‚ÄĚ
