Eclipse (H)

ILNP Eclipse (H) Holographic Ultra Chrome Nail Polish ($12.50 for 0.4 oz.) has a black base with an intense, multichromatic shift that moves between charcoal black to warm black to reddish-burgundy to coppery orange. It has an underlying, fine metallic finish with the addition of holographic micro-flakes throughout. I had no trouble admiring the multichromatic shift in person, throughout the day, without having to hunt for it.

The texture was smooth, fluid, and easy to work with, though the formula itself was more pigmented so I felt like I could go with a thinner initial coat and a more normal-thickness secondary coat to ensure cleaner edges (without having to go back in). The second coat–and third coat if you’re feeling extra–camouflages any visible brush strokes quite well, and the addition of holographic sparkle gives it a little extra oonph, but they are fine enough to let the shift really come through.

Per the brand, it has its maximum coverage in two to three coats. In the swatches, I’ve applied two coats and then one layer of Zoya Armor top coat (though I added Zoya Anchor as a base coat when I tested for longevity), which was effective to get opaque coverage. I wore this shade for 10 days and had minor tip wear and no chips.

As a FYI, the brand offers this shade with and without holographic micro-flakes–shades designated with (“H”) include the holographic micro-flakes.

Formula Overview

$12.50/0.4 oz. - $31.25 Per Ounce

The brand has several finishes, though some overlap, and they primarily have polishes with some shimmer to them, which often includes holographic, duochromatic, or multichromatic shimmer and effects.

The majority of shades specifically list how many coats are necessary for full coverage, which typically ranged from two to three, though a few went as high as four coats; the jelly finish, as expected, tended to be the sheerest. I found that what was stated was typically accurate to opacity performance. Most shades needed two coats for even (and/or opaque) coverage.

More metallic shades--often multichromes--had barely visible brush strokes from a normal viewing distance (as compared to a close-up photo, which is magnified). An additional coat sometimes made these even less noticeable, and then a good layer of top coat further reduced the visibility.

Both the holographic and multichrome shades presented with visible shifts and even dispersion of holographic shimmer/sparkle. Some of the multichrome shades had less contrasting shifts, so the effect wasn't as strong head-on (e.g. shifting between blue to violet to warmer purple) but readily visible just glancing at my nails resting on the desk and so on. Many shades had finer pearl/shimmer, which danced and caught the light beautifully but ensured a smooth texture and easier removal.

The formula tended to have a light to light-medium viscosity to it, which ensured fluid, more even coverage without being thick, goopy, or so thin that it dried down as one applied it to nail. Some of the black-based shimmer shades seemed to be a little thinner relative to the jelly or multichrome finishes. Most shades self-leveled and hid my more ridged nails, though a good base and top coat would be ideal. Overall, the polishes were smooth and easy to work with, while the brush itself wasn't too wide nor too narrow, though I had to be most careful working with some of the richer shades on my pinky!

The drying time seemed average; I was able to add a second (and/or third) coat after I had done the other nails on my hand. I would give the Multichromes a little extra time to dry down just to ensure the least visible brush strokes in the end result, though. For the more sparkly and textured shades, like the glitters, I felt like a top coat really helped to bring everything together to give the end result a shiny, plush effect.

Of the shades I've done full wear tests for (about 20 shades at the time of writing the overview), none of them have chipped over the course of a week. I've had minor tip wear across the board with some shades having very minor tip wear at that.

That being said, it's typical for me to have polish last a week or longer on me, though, and I have not personally had issues with finding a formula that wears a week with minor tip wear but no chipping. The primary source of tip wear likely comes from typing on the computer, though I also open small, paper cartons and peel off labels routinely when opening new products (for review).

Greatness (H)

ILNP Greatness (H) Holographic Ultra Chrome Nail Polish ($12.50 for 0.4 oz.) has a black base with an intense, multichromatic shift that went between burgundy, warm red, copper, olive, and rich gold paired with a fine, metallic finish that had holographic micro-flakes dispersed throughout. The shift was very strong and noticeable in person without having to resort to extreme, contorted positions–no hunting for the shift required! I was even able to see that olive-green edge come through at a glance.

The texture was smooth, fluid, and not too thick or too thin, which made it easier to apply the polish in even layers that didn’t pool along the edges of my nails. It seemed to self-level quite well and very few brush strokes came through, certainly not in person.

Per the brand, it has its maximum coverage in two to three coats. In the swatches, I’ve applied two coats and then one layer of Zoya Armor top coat (though I added Zoya Anchor as a base coat when I tested for longevity), which was plenty for full opacity. I wore this shade for 10 days and had minor tip wear and no chips.

Cameo

ILNP Cameo Ultra Chrome Nail Polish ($12.50 for 0.4 oz.) seemed to have a black base with an intense, multichromatic shift that went between raspberry pink to plum to orange-copper to bronze to olive green with a more metallic finish. It was like a finer metallic, which helped minimize the visibility of brush strokes, though I felt like I could barely detect them in person (and a little more noticeable in the close-up photos, which I’d expect).

The consistency was smooth, fluid, and easy to work with as the color applied evenly, didn’t pool, and self-leveled without taking too long to dry down between coats. Per the brand, it has its maximum coverage in two to three coats. In the swatches, I’ve applied two coats and then one layer of Zoya Armor top coat (though I added Zoya Anchor as a base coat when I tested for longevity), which was plenty for full coverage. I wore this shade for 10 days and had minor tip wear and no chips.

If only I didn’t get psoriasis in my finger and toe nails. These are gorgeous and it would be a great way to add color, when your eyes are moving towards neutrals, due to age. How I wish I could wear these.😢

I don’t know why it never occurred to me before, but I need to check if they have a suitable alternative to MAC’s Bad Fairy. That’s one of the few polishes I’m still truly sad to have missed out on, years later! I found it funny that so many companies at the time were releasing those multichromatic polishes, but MAC was the only brand to release *that* shade.
