Hi everyone! Today’s manicure comes from Illyrian Polish. I’ve become a big fan of these complex, often flakie filled, creations! The webstore is closed right now but will be opening up tomorrow with a new collection. You can find that HERE. I am not affiliated.
Mesmerism was from the Halloween 2018 collection. I did not find an official description but I saw it as a sheer black base with tons of green/teal/pink/purple flakies and a green to purple shifting shimmer. This had an excellent formula. It applies easily but it is packed with flakies so I would suggest letting your coats dry completely between coats of color. I used two normal coats than a thick third coat and it covered completely. It dries nice and smooth so only one coat of topcoat was used. I love it so much I accidentally bought two!
Illyrian Polish Mesmerism, 3 coats plus 1 coat of topcoat.

If you have a polish brand, I’d love to swatch and review for you! Send me an email rpf1968 (at) hotmail.com!
Well, there we have it!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
The polish in this post is from my own collection and was purchased by me.

Hi! Isn’t it cute? It was such a perfect match I had to include it! It’s a little bag charm from Coach.
