ILNP – Brilliance

Brilliance is my second polish from ILNP’s Ultra Chrome Flakies collection, and it’s just as amazing as my first.  The flakies in this polish primarily lean more green and gold, but as you will see, flashes of pink and red are very common.  The formula is great to work with, and if you want a […]

OPI Push and Shove
