ILNP Downtown is a moderately warm-toned, light duochrome with a sparkle finish. It is a permanent nail lacquer that retails for $10.00 and contains 0.4 oz.
ILNP Downtown Holographic Jelly Nail Polish ($10.00 for 0.4 oz.) has a sheerer, lavender jelly base with fine shifting sparkle that went from chartreuse to brighter lime green to cool lavender. At certain angles, half my nail looked mostly pink; sometimes I thought I had mislabeled because it really does look pink along the edges but does go purple at other angles.
It had a smooth, fluid consistency that was true to a jelly finish polish, so a little plusher and a little thicker, but it didn't pool or flood along my cuticle too readily. If I want to load up on coats and go for a more opaque look, I'd definitely go with a thinner coat initially and then let second and third coats be more of a "normal" thickness coat. When the light hit my nail, the gold really came through the brightest and strongest.
Per the brand, it has maximum coverage in two to three coats. In the swatches, I've applied three coats using Deborah Lippmann Gel Lab Pro base and top coats, which yielded medium to semi-opaque coverage. I'd definitely need a fourth coat to get closer to opaque, as I could see my nail line sometimes with three coats, but it has a jelly finish, so translucency was expected, but I'd say that compared to other similar finish shades by the brand, this seemed a little sheerer. I wore this shade for 10 days and had minor tip wear and no chips.
