ILNP The Magician and Cirque Coronation Dupe?!

Happy Tuesday gang! Today I have for you a polish combination that I discovered while perusing the Facebook group Polish-Aholics Anonymous . If you are not familiar with the group it is a group where mail polish enthusiasts go to discover polish, talk about polish and show off polish. Someone posted pics (I didn't get the woman's name who posted, so if you are in the group and know who it is please let me know in the comments so I can credit her!) of ILNP The Magician over OPI Do You Have This Color In Stock-holm? And I about passed out. Why, you ask? Well because the combo is a dupe of the Big Foot of the polish world, Cirque Coronation. Coronation is a polish that if you were lucky to get your hands on when it was available you are indeed a lucky girl. Cirque stopped making the polish when the ingredients (called Unicorn pee by polish enthusiasts) stopped being produced. And now bottles of Cirque gor for upwards of $60 on the resell market. Yeah. you read that right. $60 for a polish! And that's on the low end of cost estimates! Sooo...you can imagine my joy when I discovered that there was a way to achieve the gloriousness of Coronation without having to drop $60 - and that's if I could find it (and trust me- I've been looking. For literally years). 

The Magician is a limited edition polish made of the same rare pigment used in Coronation, called Unicorn Pee. I have to admit, in the bottle it doesn't look like much of anything. A milky, slightly reflective top coat. But once you layer it over a color polish? OMG. I could not stop gasping as I painted it over my base color. 

I decided to use the same base color suggested in the FB group and layered it over Do You Have This Color In Stock-holm? The combination of the two is nearly identical to Cirque Coronation! The more you layer the Magician over a color the more intense the color-shift and sparkle. The possibilities are endless with this polish.

Because of the extremely limited supply of the pigment, ILNP The Magician is limited edition. Which means once they run out of pigment they will stop making it and it will be gone forever. So if you are interested I highly suggest heading over to the site to order it now. When I ordered mine it was on a Saturday and the first batch was sold out by Sunday morning. I checked on the ILNP website and it is currently re-stocked for the what I believe to be the final batch. 

The Magician retails for $12.50 via ILNP
