ILNP – Bishop

A while back I ordered three nail polishes from ILNP and today I want to take a quick look at the last polish from that order, Bishop. (The other two were Spiced Eggnog and Cygnus Loop H)

two coats of Bishop over OPI Nail Envy and with a single coat of Seche Vite top coat
If you are a green or gold nail polish lover then you really might just NEED Bishop in your life. It’s so rich and beautiful and it travels from a yellow gold through a rich olive green and at extreme angles there is a deep navy blue. It’s gorgeous.

This applies easily and is completely opaque in two coats. Many duochromes or metallic finish polishes are streaky and leave brush marks but Bishop really applies quite smoothly, there are a few brush marks but it’s pretty minor.

As far as lasting power, I have been incredibly impressed with the ILNP formula. I had pretty minor tip wear after about 8 days and it started to chip a little after 10 or so days. I actually wore this for two weeks because I am lazy and really, if it weren’t for the nail regrowth, it looked pretty darn good. I can’t recommend this brand enough and it is fast becoming my new favorite.

You can purchase Bishop from the ILNP website and it is $12.50 (ILNP frequently runs promotions and sends out discount codes so get on their mailing list, it’s really worth it). Bishop is also available with a holographic effect that is really tempting.

Have you tried anything from ILNP? I’d love to hear your recommendations if you have! Also, have you seen their new winter collection? I need it. All of it.


  • Gray Cat is really not a fan if being an indoor cat. Two nights ago he kept me up all night long crying and literally climbing the walls. We will all be glad when he can go outside again. 
  • We’re going on a long trip soon and I’m having fun trying to decide which very basic makeup items to take along. 
  • I found these cool bugs on my walk recently 
    I suspect that they are boxelder bug nymphs but I’m not completely sure.
  • I found this guy on the same walk. He was around four inches long and at a glance he looked just like a leaf. Aside from the moving across the pavement. That kind of gave him away.

  1. This is like that Chanel Peridot colour that everyone duped! I have the OPI dupe called Spot the Lizard from the Spiderman collection. It’s not a flattering colour on my skintone but it’s a really eye catching shade though.
    What happened to Gray Cat to make him a temporary indoor feline?
    Oooh I’d love to see what you pack for minimist travel makeup!
    Those red bugs are pretty… I would totally have thought they were berries at a glance.

    1. I have that Lizard shade as well! I absolutely love these kinds of shades but much like you, they aren’t particularly flattering on my skin tone. I don’t mind in this case because the color is great but in definitely get a little of the “lobster hand” look happening πŸ™‚
      The house we’re temporarily living in is on a really busy street so we’re not letting the cats go outside. We used to live out in the country on a dirt road so they don’t really know about streets and cars.
      I thought those bugs WERE berries when I was walking!
      I’ll definitely do a post on the travel makeup when we get back from our trip. I keep waffling between taking a small eyeshadow palette or just a quad. I literally have too many choices πŸ™‚

  2. Colourpop’s Telepathy would be a perfect match for it. Y’know… if you ever want to match your nail polish to your eyeshadow. πŸ˜‰ Bishop looks gorgeous!! Especially appreciate how good the formula is.

    Those buggies are adorable. We used to have a ton of boxelders and I used to play with them a lot as a kid… freaked my parents out lol.

    1. I suddenly have a burning need to match my nail polish to my eyeshadow. Particularly with this shade. I need to place a Colourpop order soon anyway. I really love the stuff you sent me and now that I know they have a shadow to match Bishop….
      My brother’s nick name is “Bug” because he used to always chase boxelder bugs around when he was little πŸ˜€
