I Love Nail Polish Nostalgia Swatch And Review

Purchased

Hello my dears!  Thank goodness for the weekend!  It's been a super busy and tiring week for me, and I'm looking forward to getting some much needed rest over the weekend.  I think I might be coming down with a cold(again), which is something I'll have to get use to while LO is in daycare.  The joys of parenthood, LOL.

I tried to resist purchasing this beauty that I'm going to show you today, but being the multichrome junkie that I am, I could not.  This is I Love Nail Polish Nostalgia, her most recent multichrome creation made for the holiday season.  I think this is the first I've ever seen of this particular shade of color shifting polish, and this beauty goes from burgundy to copper to vibrant green with utter ease.  Application was not easy however, as with multichromes it wasn't highly pigmented and need three coats for full opacity, and with more coats comes more brushstrokes.  The photos below are without topcoat so you can see how it finishes on its own, complete with brushstrokes.

I don't think calling it multichrome gives the color shifting properties any justice, if anything, it's more of an uberchrome, or superchrome!  Regardless of what angle or light you look at this polish, you can always see multiple colors across the nail.  The beautiful results are worth the tiny bit of extra hassle of application, guaranteeing many moments of random admiration throughout the day.   I'm loving the boom of multichromes with all the indies, but none of yet have come up with this particular combination of color shifts making Nostalgia unique amongst all of them.  I'm glad I had a lapse of willpower when it came to purchasing this beauty!  Have you fallen off the wagon for any pretties lately?

  1. Wowzer, that is stunning. I have yet to purchase any ILNP and I think that is about to change after seeing these stunning pictures!

    1. Thanks dear! It's hard to resist those multichromes... ILNP is the only one with this shade, but KBShimmer and Dance Legend have multichromes as well. Hopefully you can restrain yourself! :)

  2. That sound you just heard was my jaw hitting the floor. Uberchrome is right! Lawd have mercy. Between that beautiful flame tinted burgundy and the bright shades of green, you've got a whole flower right there in each nail -- blossom, stem, leaves and all. A tulip or a peony or a rose. Or a spray of gladiolus. Think of the brushstrokes more as a feature than a bug. The colors kind of like totally eclipse them but when you look for them all they do is really just add to the illusion that there's an impressionist's floral spray growing out of each nail. Wow.

    1. You're so right! It really does look like a rose of some sort, especially with the burgundy and green flashing together. Beautiful description! The brushstrokes aren't too bad IRL either, and it's hard to even notice them while drooling over the color shifts.

  3. Wagon? What is this wagon you speak of?

  4. I'm not a huge fan of the brushstrokes but it's very pretty regardless. I think it's something I'd put up if the end result was this. Feel better by the way!
