ILNP Black Orchid Swatch & Review

There are those treasured moments when you see a polish online and it is instant love. I experienced this with ILNP Black Orchid when I saw it some weeks ago. I've been holding on to this gem to show you guys after the 31 Day Challenge. Get ready to drool!

 The owner of ILNP, Barbra, states on the website that she worked on and off for two years to perfect this color. And she managed to do just that. 

Black Orchid is a gorgeous plum/burgundy holo. I literally ooohed and ahhhed while applying it. The formula was great - especially for a dark holo which I always find to be kind of streaky and patchy. Black Orchid went on smoothly with no streaks or bald spots. I was able to achieve full opacity on two coats. 

One thing I really loved while I was wearing Black Orchid was how beautiful it was in both direct and indirect light. The holo is strong but not overwhelming which I prefer.

Black Orchid is available on the ILNP website and retails for $10.
