Swatches & Review // Il Était Un Vernis #Hashtag

Hi loves! I'm sharing the new Il Était Un Vernis #Hashtag collection with you today, another beautiful 5 piece set. Like previous collections, the formula of these shades is outstanding, so let's dive right in to take a closer look!

My friend Emily from Very Emily is sharing swatches of these beauties as well, and since she takes her pictures in a completely different set-up I highly recommend you to check out her review as well (after reading mine, obviously ;-)). She always takes gorgeous pictures and I can't wait to see how these will look on her!
 
All pictures are taken under artificial lighting which highlights a holographic finish and slightly washes out smaller details like glitter.

Il Était Un Vernis #Hellosunshine is a bright and cheery yellow shade, with a jelly finish and a touch of holographic sparkle. This has the bestest formula ever for a yellow shade. It does have a jelly finish and I still think it has a certain translucency at 3 coats, but it does cover smoothly and very even, so it´s a dream to apply.

Il Était Un Vernis #Imanatural is a beige/grey shade, quite the chameleon. It really depends on both your skintone and lighting how this'll appear, but either way it's a lovely and cozy shade. The formula is opaque in 2 easy coats.

Il Était Un Vernis #Justmytype is a charcoal grey with a lovely scattered holographic finish, that easily sparkles when it catches some light. For me personally this grey is a bit too warm toned, though the formula makes up for it: 2 easy coats and you are done.

Il Était Un Vernis #Ladykiller is a superdark, vampy dark blue shade with that same luxurious scattered holographic finish as Cabernet Sauvignon from the previous collection. Depending on the light this shade will look black but I don't mind, it's gorgeous either way! My brush had one hair that was a bit too long so I struggled with application at first, but after I trimmed it there were no issues anymore. I used 2 coats for opacity.

Il Était Un Vernis #Monsieurjetaime is a lovely teal shade. If you've seen previous collection, you'll notice the girls love to add a teal to their sets, but this one stands out very well from the rest. It's quite a light shade and with a lot of green to it, and again the formula is perfect, just 2 easy coats are needed!

Overall conclusion
Like I said in the intro, the formula of Il Était Un Vernis is heavenly. The colors all applied smooth, evenly and with the exception of #Hellosunshine they all covered perfectly in 2 easy coats. I like the versatility of colors in this set, and my favorites are #Imanatural and #Ladykiller.
