ILNP Sparks May Fly

Sparks May Fly was released in November by Nevada-based indie polish maker ILNP as part of the Holiday 2017 collection, and is described as a Dijon yellow holo with golden bronze shimmer.  It's an unusual, complex dark goldenrod color, a brassy yellow-brown with aspects of curry, gingerbread, caramel and bronze, warm, rich and highly decorative. Superabundant golden microflake shimmers flood it with tons of bright yellow-gold sparkle and create a polished precious metal kind of vibe. In the sun, the gold sparkle is supplemented by a field of brilliant prismatic sparks. Dazzling!

Application was fabulous. The consistency of Sparks May Fly is fluid and full-bodied with a medium viscosity and a plush, self-leveling glide over the nail, an eminently-paintable formula that is a pleasure to manipulate with ILNP's flattened-style brush. Pigmentation is very good, delivering opaque coverage in two coats. Cleanup looses gold microflake shimmers to roam freely about the nail environs, but they aren't as sticky as some. Sparks May Fly dries naturally in very good time to a smooth, shiny finish.

Some may be inclined to classify this as a "so ugly it's beautiful" kind of color. I beg to differ! It is unusual for nail polish, true, but so radiant, sumptuous and sparkly that it possesses an almost regal sensibility on the nail. I find it utterly stunning and profoundly glamorous, a gorgeous, unforgettable signature look! If you love chic, unusual colors, you simply must have this -- it will please you immensely!

love,
