NOTD – ILNP Greatness

I dag vil jeg vise billeder af den smukkeste lak. Jeg havde taget denne på som base til halloween nail art, men var simpelthen nødt til at tage nogle billeder af den uden noget på, for den er simpelthen så smuk.
Det er ILNP Greatness fra ILNP’s 2015 efterårskollektion. Umiddelbart ikke en lak jeg var super interesseret i, egentlig mest fordi jeg synes der er andre lakker i kollektionen som er mere iøjnefaldende. Men man er nødt til at have Greatness på neglene for at se dens sande skønhed.
Greatness er en orange/rød ultra chrome. Den svinger mellem orange, guld til rød og rødlig lilla. En helt fantastisk lak her til efteråret, især når der ikke er meget sol, da chrome lakker tager sig bedst ud i skyggen hvor man virkelig kan se deres skift i farve.
Jeg er i hvert fald helt vild med denne lak. Jeg elsker at den er mere rød end de andre orange duochrome/multichrome lakker jeg ejer.
Dette er tre lag.

Today I want to show the most beautiful polish. I took this on as a base for some halloween nail art, but I had to take pictures without anything on it, because it’s just so beautiful.
This is ILNP Greatness from ILNP’s fall 2015 collection. Not a polish I was originaly that interested in, mostly becase I think the collection consists of more eye catching polishes. But you really have to wear Greatness on your nails in order to see it’s true beauty.
Greatness is a orange/red ultra chrome. It shifts between orange, gold to red and reddish purple. An incredible polish for the fall, especially if there isn’t too much sun, because chromes really look better in the shade where you can really see the shift in color.
I am definitely crazy about this polish. I love that it’s more red than the other orange duochrom/multichrome polishes I own.
This is three layers.

CND Fall collection 2015 “Contradictions”

c

I dag vil jeg vise de 8 lakker i CND’s efterårskollektion Contradictions. Jeg modtog denne kollektion for et par dage siden, og tænkte at det ville være super at swatche dem alle, siden det er længe siden jeg har posted om en hel kollektion.
Contradictions består som sagt af 8 lakker, med en god blanding af farver og finishes. Jeg kan godt lide farverne, men jeg kunne godt have brugt en orange eller en brun, bare for at gøre den endnu mere efterårs-agtig.
Fælles for alle disse er, at de alle har en rigtig god konsistens, og de fleste er nemme at applikere.
Disse billeder er taget i direkte sollys, så det er klart, at det gør lakkerne lysere end de “normalt” ser ud.
Alle lakker, undtagen Poison Plum, er swatchet uden top coat.

Today I want to show you guys the 8 polishes in CND’s fall collection Contradictions. I recieved this collection the other day, and I thought I would swatch them all since it’s been a while since I’ve done a post with a complete collection.
Contradictions consists of 8 polishes with a good mixture of colors and finishes.I really like the colors, but I would have liked an orange or a brown, just to make it even more fall-ish.
A commom trait for these polishes are their great consistency and most of them applies really great.
These pictures are taken in direct sunlight, so obviously the polishes look a little lighter that they “normally” would.
All polishes except Poison Plum are swatched without top coat.

4Grommet 2 lag Grommet er en lækker gunmetal med en masse fint shimmer. Jeg er vild med den næsten blå/lilla farve den får i solen. Her har jeg to lag på. Jeg kunne personligt nok have brugt et trejde pga. mine rillede negle, men synes resultatet blev fint nok, og Grommet er klart en af mine yndlings i kollektionen.
__________
Grommet 2 coats Grommet is a nice gunmetal with a lot of pretty shimmer. I love how it almost looks purple/blue in the sun. Here I have on two coats. I could have used a third because of my ridged nails, but I think the result is pretty, and Grommet is one of my favorites from the collection.

6Poison Plum 3 lag Poison Plum er en underlig lak. Det er en nærmest jelly-agtig lilla/rød/brun base med rødlig glitter. Glitteren er super svær at se i den mørke base, medmindre man lige vinkler sine negle rigtigt. Til denne har jeg lagt tre lag plus to lag top coat. Som den eneste i kollektionen behøvede den top coat, da glitteret gjorde overfladen en smule bulet. Egentlig en okay neglelak, jeg ville dog ønske glitteret var mere fremtrædende.
__________
Poison Plum 3 coats Poison Plum is a weird polish. It’s an almost jelly-ish purple/red/brown base with reddish glitter. The glitter is really hard to see unless you angle your nails right. For this I did three coats plus two layers of top coat. As the only one in the collection, this needed top coat, or the glitter would leave the surface bumpy. A pretty okay polish, but I would have liked the glitter to be more prominent.

5Rouge Rite 4 lag Jeg ELSKER bærfarver, så denne er selvfølgelig ingen undtagelse. Godt nok har jeg nok over et dusin af denne slags lakker, men “de er ikke de samme, de er ens”, ikke? ;). Tre lag var egentlig nok til denne, men for billedets skyld lagde jeg et ekstra, da man ellers kunne se min negl under.
__________
Rouge Rite 4 coats I LOVE berry colors so this one is no exception. I might already have a dozen of this kind of polish, but “they’re not the same, they are similar”, right? 😉 Three coats were actually enough, but for the sake of the picture taking I added an extra, or else you could see Visible nail line.

3Tartan Punk 2 lag Tartan Punk er en ret lækker lys rød lak. Den har en smule guld shimmer, og er bare super fin. Også rigtig lækker at lægge på!
__________
Tartan Punk 2 coats Tartan Punk is a really nice light red polish. It has some slight gold shimmer and it’s just super pretty. Also really nice to apply!

8Naked Naiveté 4 lag Ud af alle lakkerne i denne kollektion, var denne den sværeste at lægge. Der var stadig “bald spots” efter tre lag, så den måtte have et fjerde. Selve lakken er en fin nude der læner sig mod det lidt gullige. Super flot lak, men jeg er ærgelig over, at den var så bøvlet at ligge.

__________
Naked Naiveté 4 coats Out of all the polishes in this collection, this was the worst to apply. I still had bald spots after three coats, so I had to add a fourth. The polish is a nice nude that leans towards the yellow-ish. Super pretty polish, just a shame it’s so hard to apply.

7Safety Pin 3 lag Det er sådan sølv foil lakker skal laves! Hold op en fin lak. Denne har sådan et fint look. Den ser nærmest grønlig ud i nogle lys, i andre læner den sig mod sølv med lidt kobber. Desuden er den super fin da den ikke efterlader penselstrøj, som mange foil lakker ellers gør. Jeg er bestemt fan af denne lak!
_________
Safety Pin 3 coats This is how to make a silver foil polish! Wow a pretty polish. This has such a nice look. It almost had a green tint in some lights, in others it leans towards some copper. It’s also really pretty because it doesn’t leave those horrible brush strokes that a lot of foils do. I am definitely a fan of this polish! 

2Couture Covet 3 lag Super flot mørk teal lak. Rigtig lækker konsistens. Jeg var nødt til at give denne 3 lag, men lakken tørrede hurtigt, så det gjorde ikke noget. To lag plus top coat ville nok have været fint :). Jeg er vild med denne! Fed farve!
__________
Couture Covet 3 coats Super pretty dark teal polish. Really nice consistency. I had to do three layers, but the polish dried fast, so I didn’t mind. Two coats plus top coat would probably be good 🙂 I love this. Such a cool color!

9Peacock Plume 1 lag Jeg har gemt den bedste til sidst (ikke med vilje, jeg går efter det øverste billedes rækkefølge, men sjovt nok er den bedste til sidst 😀 ) Denne lak er så lækker! Det overrasker vel ikke nogen, at dette er min yndlings. Den er jo blå! Denne lak prøvede jeg to gange. Da jeg først prøvede den brugte jeg tre lag. Jeg har riller i mine negle, og de blev bare ved med at kunne ses. Anden gang jeg prøvede jeg at ligge to lag base coat, og det resulterede i, at lakken pludselig var en one coater for mig! Vildt ikke? Jeg elsker når lakker kan se så smukke ud her, med kun et lag!
__________
Peacock Plume 1 coat I saved the best for last (not on purpose, I’m going with the order of the picture at the top, but funny enough the best is last 😀 ) This polish is so stunning! I guess it doesn’t surprise anyone that this is my fave. It’s blue! I tried this polish two times. The first time I applied three coats. I have ridges in my nails, and I just kept on seeing those ridges. Second time around I did two layers of base coat with the result that the polish was suddenly a one coater. Crazy right? I love when polishes can look this gorgeous with only one coat!
