Today’s post is very dear to me, so I couldn’t wait to show you my first Il Était Un Vernis polish. I found this new brand on Instagram, and I immediately fell in love with their shades. “Of course” I had to order some of them and now, here we have Crush On Blue.
Il Était Un Vernis is a French indie polish brand, the name itself means ‘Once upon a nail polish’. One day two lovely French bloggers, Bé and Stéphanie decided to hop into the nail polish business – this is how Il Était Un Vernis was born. I’m sure that most of you have alreay heard at least about Bé (Vernis en Folie), because she was the one who created the most beautiful nail polish ever, Hope, with piCture pOlish.
I was sure that I possibly can’t go wrong if I trust her another time, so I ordered Crush On Blue and In Teal We Trust – and both of them are so gorgeous!
Crush On Blue is a metallic deep blue with scatter holo. *_* It reminds me of PP Eyre, but the base shades are quite different. It covers with two coats and has a very good formule. As the SpaRitual polishes, these are vegan too – this feature is becoming more and more important lately.
You can order directly form their website, though it’s entirely in French, so it doesn’t really favour those who don’t speak the language. Fortunately the webhop is the same as Funlacquer’s, so it can help to manage. Still I think that they should have an English version too. :/ Or you can go to Hypnotic Polish and order from them. :) You can choose from two collections, but they have a base and a top coat and nail care items too.
I admit I’m more than biased when it comes to Il Était Un Vernis: it’s French, it’s Hope related and the girls are more than nice too, so yeah I can’t but recommend them to all of you. :) And I do hope that there will be even more Europe based indie brands, so that we don’t have to order everything from overseas. :)
