Illyrian Polish | Talisman, Gold Lion

MAGYAR verzió                                                                                                                                       PR sample

 I have two Illyrian Polish swatches to show you, I bought them both from Color4Nails a couple of weeks earlier. Sadly one of them (Gold Lion) went out of stock by the time I was able to write this post, but since I already finished the swatches I thought I will share them anyway.
I asked Sisi from Color4Nails, but probably they won't restock Gold Lion, but maybe Vanessa from Illyrian Polis will bring back this shade someday.

It has a sheer grey jelly base with heavy shimmer. The shimmer's main color is green, but it shifts to a red-brown or golden brown in certain angles and lights.
It has a really nice formula, this is 2 coats with topcoat.

It's a medium/dark grey with the slightest blue undertone with intensive orange-copper micro-micro glitters or shimmer, I couldn't decide :D
I can't understand how can be so bright and intense the color of the shimmer, because the base itself is really pigmented, not jelly-like at all, yet it doesn't cover up the color and shine of the shimmer. It's amazing :D
I used 2 easy coats with topcoat.

I truly hope that Gold Lion will return one day and will be available for purchase, because I saw how many of you liked it, it got tons of comments on my IG!
Anyway, Talisman is still available on Color4Nais, so grab it while you can!
