Illimité Van Gogh Collection Swatches & Review


Illimite Van Gogh

Hello readers,
Today I have the Illimité Van Gogh Collection to share with you. This collection features a mix of shades and finishes inspired by the life and work of Vincent Van Gogh. Let's take a look at swatches.

Delicate Beauty

Delicate Beauty features a bright blue (cool) to pearly white (warm) thermal shifting base with a golden flecked shimmer and lots of small silver holo glitters. The formula was easy to work with. I used two coats for full coverage in the cool state. In the warmest state my nail lines to show through a tiny bit. This dries with a little bit of texture and a matte finish so I recommend a glossy top coat to smooth everything out. Photos show two coats of Delicate Beauty with one coat of Live Love Polish Quick Dry Top Coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Melancholia

Melancholia features a sheer burnt orange jelly base filled with several size of silver and gold holo glitters and a fine blue shimmer. The formula was easy to work with, especially for a glitter. I used three coats for full coverage. This shade does dry down with some glitter texture so I highly recommend top coat to smooth things out. One is enough to get rid of most bumps, two would be required for a perfect finish. Photos show three coats of Melancholia with one coat of Live Love Polish Quick Dry Top Coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Still Life

Still Life features a sheer teal jelly base filled with tiny blue flecks and an assortment of small gold glitters. The formula was a little finicky. I found that there was some dragging if I went over the same spot twice in one coat. I also had to do some dabbing and nudging to get even glitter coverage. However, I was pleasantly surprised with how smoothly this dried. I though for sure the glitters would need an extra coat of top coat, but one was more than enough. Photos show three coats of Still Life with one coat of Live Love Polish Quick Dry Top Coat in daylight spectrum lighting.

Sunflowers

Sunflowers features a rich yellow crelly base with small silver holo glitters and a pink flecked shimmer. The formula was easy to work with though a bit sheer. After three coats my nail line still shows through a little bit in certain lighting. This dries to a satin finish so I recommend top coat for shine. Photos show three coats of Sunflowers with one coat of Live Love Polish Quick Dry Top Coat in daylight spectrum lighting.
