Goodbye, Il Etait Un Vernis!


Sometimes in the nail world there are some sad news that no one would like to hear, such as the end of the activity of a loved brand like Il Était Un Vernis (IEUV). French indie brand well-known by the nail addicts worldwide, Il Était Un Vernis was very appreciated for the beautiful colours and the perfect formulas.
Due to the end of the activity, all the nail shops that sell IEUV are making a clearance sale, so, if you want to buy some shades, you’d better do it ASAP, as they won’t come back.

Why am I writing this post? Because I wanted to properly say goodbye to Il Était Un Vernis, and what a better way than showing you some beautiful nail polishes of this brand? The idea comes from the #goodbyeIEUV nail collab, that I joined together with other seven gorgeous nail addicts. We decided to swatch one nail polish each.

Besides me, the collab was joined by Adriana (blog: Adry’s Pink Cloud, IG: @_a_d_r_y_), Alessandra (IG: @upadaisynails), Ilaria (IG: @my_apawcalypse), Manuela (IG: @manumanufatti), Simona (IG: @simolive), Tanya (blog: Zaya_Nails, IG: @zaya_nails) and Valentina (blog: Do You Speak Nail Polish?, IG: @doyouspeaknailpolish). I want to send a big thank you to all the ladies for letting me use their amazing pictures!

Now, are you ready to see some gorgeous IEUV shades?

Il Etait Un Vernis, Captain Blue Sky (swatch @my_apawcalypse)

Let’s begin with Captain Blue Sky, a cobalt leaning electric blue with a holo finish. It belongs to the collection Welcome To Paradise and it was swatched by @my_apawcalypse.

Il Etait Un Vernis, Field Trip Fun (swatch: @simolive)

Field Trip Fun, swatched by @simolive, is a prismatic greyish purple with copper reflections. I find it really hypnotic! It belongs to the collection Back To School.

Il Etait Un Vernis, #imanatural (swatch: @manumanufatti)

Now, let’s see a neutral shade: a cool-toned holo grey called #imanatural. It’s part of the #hashtag collection and it was swatched by @manumanufatti.

Il Etait Un Vernis, Keep Calm And Follow The Dragon

Keep Calm And Follow The Dragon is the nail polish I chose to swatch: a stunning limey yellow that belongs to the collection Mystical Fantasy Club. It reaches full coverage in two coats, although it tends to stain a bit due to its great pigmentation.

Il Etait Un Vernis, #ladykiller (swatch: @upadaisynails)

#ladykiller is another polish that belongs to the #hashtag collection. It’s a night blue with subtle holo particles and it was swatched by @upadaisynails.

Il Etait Un Vernis, Offstage (swatch: @doyospeaknailpolish)

Offstage is a lovely pine holographic green. It is part of the collection So Cabaret and it was swatched by @doyouspeaknailpolish.

Il Etait Un Vernis, Pleased To Sweet You (swatch: @_a_d_r_y_)

Pleased To Sweet You is a lavender/mauve violet with many wonderful reflections. It belongs to the collection Sweet Bliss and it was swatched by @_a_d_r_y_.

Last, but not least: Truth Or Dare, a holo cappuccino-cream nail shade that belongs to the collection Juice Bar. Swatch by @zaya_nails.

It’s so sad to think that all these amazing shades won’t be available anymore, as they are so beautiful and lovely! I really recommend to grab the last bottles of this brand during clearance sales. I hope that you enjoyed reading this post, and that this was a good way to celebrate this brand one last time. Again, let me say thank you to the ladies for letting me include their pictures!
