So, it’s been a week since I have posted the swatches of the newest ILNP Fall 2015 collection (you can check them here). The pre-order is live, so if you are not sure about a polish or two (or ten!), check out this post, because I was searching for some dupes. Hurry up, because it end tonight! 🙂 I tried to pick all the polishes, that look similar in the bottle, but as you will see, show off different things on nails. I have compared all exept Spiced Eggnog (cuz there is no dupe for it atm) and the two flakies. Let’s see the comparisons.
Firstly, I have compared ILNP polishes: Clockwork, Fame and Iconic. Clockwork and Fame have the same finish, but the base colour is different. Fame leans more to silver and Clockwork to gold. When comparing Clockwork with Iconic is just the opposite. Both colours are goldish, but the finish is not the same. While Clockwork has a strong metallic & holo finish, Iconic has a stunning pinkish shimmer & linear holo finish.
Next up is First Class. I did two comparisons. First photo shows you ILNP polishes with same finish, but different colours. While Fisrt Class tends to be more greyish, Fame leans more to gold and Happily Ever After to lilac. The second picture shows a comparison of First Class with ILNP Fame and F.U.N Lacquer – Pay Day (H). I am really sad I have realized that my Pay Day (H) turned more yellow/goldish than it has to be, because I am sure the original colour doesn’t look like this. Anyway, same thing as with Fame. Pay Day (H) is goldish, while First Class leans more to silverish grey.
Here comes another ILNP stunner – Top Down. I was super surprised when I was looking into my stash, because I found Literary Lacquers – Attice Mice, that looks quite close when talking about the colour. Applied, of course, isn’t that close, because it is much more greyish while Top Down is a silverish blue that leans even to teal a bit. Also, the holo effect is not the same, because Top Down contains holo flakes and Attice Mice is a classic linear holo. Comparing to ILNP – Timeless Vow, Top Down is more blue-ish, and the holo effect is again not the same. Also, Timeless Vow has some awesome golden flakies.
Maiden Lane vs. MIssed Calls. Both polishes are ultra holos (and they are AMAZING!), but the colours are different. Missed Calls is a black based ultra holo, while Maiden Lane has that specific grey base that has a bit of blue in it.
I have compared Mona Lisa to F.U.N Lacquer – Pocahontas. Again, the holo effect isn’t the same, because Pocahontas has a linear holo effect, and the colour is also more goldish. Mona Lisa has a darker and more browner base.
Next up is Dream Girl, compared to some older sisters from the previous ILNP collections. Colours of Flower Girl and Dream Girl are there-there but holo effects are different. Flower Girls is a linear holo while Dream Girls has that in-your-face ultra holo sparkle. Champagne Blush and Dreaming in Violet have again a different base colour and a different holo effect.
Moving on to the vampies. I have compared Diablo to six different polishes, and the closest dupe is Picture Polish – Monroe, but then again… Picture Polish has a specific holo effect, which is deffinitely not similar to the one Barbra makes. Zoya – Blaze is much more red, and ILNP – Black Orchid is a darker vampy. Picture Polish – Moscow isn’t a real holo and the colour is more cranberry, which applies for Echoes Polish – Crushing Cranberry as well. I was looking at my bottle of Darling Diva Polish – The Grand Rite and thought it would be an interesting comparison. It turns out, it is rather red than vampy! 🙂
Next is the purple Pretty Little Liar in comparison to three other ILNP purples from previous collections. ILNP – Poetry is has a stunning shimmer and it is a linear holo while these jellies have a scattered holo effect. ILNP – Kings & Queens is a much lighter shade with linear holo, and ILNP – Black Orchid is more blackened than Pretty Little Liar.
Lulu is a blurple shade, so I couldn’t really find a match for it. It is a darker shade then ILNP – Walking Home, which is an ultra holo, and Dance Legend – Anthem, which has some gorgeous flakes in it as well and is a linear holo. ILNP – Homecoming is darker then Lulu and is a linear holo.
I was searching for a possible dupe or a closure at least for Overnight Bag as well. I don’t have one. I swatched it side by side with ILNP – Black Orchid, but the last one is more purple, which Overnight Bag isn’t at all. Also, the holo effect is different.
I saw some comparisons of Mountain View and Picture Polish – Escapades. Well, you won’t see this one here, because I don’t have the mentioned Picture Polish. But I did compare it with ILNP – Fall Semester and BaronessX – Black Forest. No dupes here either. While Mountain View tends to be a bit tealish, Black Forest is a true green shade. Fall Semester is a lighter teal shade with linear holo.
I might have a dupe for After Midnight. In shade of course! I am talking about Darling Diva Polish – Queen of the Night. This one is maybe a shade darker, but really close to After Midnight. The difference is of course in holo effect, and those golden flakies that After Midnight contains. The remaining two, Echoes Polish – Crisp Air and Pahlish – Violet Gumdrops, looked close as well, but when I applied them, both of them were more purple than blue.
Enough holos, let’s shift some colours. I have a dupe for Greatness! It is the F.U.N Lacquer – Burnin’ Up. They looked the same to me. Dance Legend – Boo is maybe a bit more orange than red, and ILNP – Abundance (H), I don’t have the original version, is also more copper and orange than red.
And the last comparison is of Cameo (H). I don’t have a dupe for it, but if you have the F.U.N Lacquer – Celebrate (H), you might have one. i have compared it to the original F.U.N Lacquer – Celebrate, and the shift itself was the same. You can see below the ILNP – Masquerade (H) and Nostalgia (H) as well, but there is a lack of true purple in the shift.
You can purchase the new ILNP Fall 2015 collection on the official website or through one of the international stockists such as Nailland Hungary or Hypnotic Polish. The pre-order ends tonight, so hurry up, otherwise you will have to wait until the official release! I hope you enjoyed my comparisons and please feel free to comment!
