Unless you don’t follow nail bloggers, Instgram nailistas or just plain live under a rock, you’ve no doubt heard of the pretty doggone cool iridescent, color-shifting nail polish flakies craze. All I can say is, I’m in! I’ve tried the pale, semi-transparent iridescent ones which may shift from cool blue, yellow/orange, pink and green. And oh my they are gorgeous. These take the trend to a whole new level. Warning, lots of images here but I’ve compressed them for you so they shouldn’t be too brutal on your data package! 😉
ILNP Ultra Chrome Flakies are fully opaque and can be worn alone or over any color without affecting the intense color shifting properties. Full coverage in 3 – 4 coats. And ILNP is taking pre-orders as of yesterday, Nov. 14th! So enough of me yammering on and on about these lovelies. I have the first 6 of 13 to show you today. More to come later. Here are come the swatches! Oh, and I would be remiss if I didn’t mention these are in ILNP brand spankin’ new classy squared bottles. The brushes are smooth, rubberized ergo cap, and the formulas are easy to apply, quick to dry…my oh my!
Note from ILNP: Be sure to get over to ILNP asap to get in on the pre-order discount! Pre-orders are scheduled to end on Tuesday November 18th at 10PM Pacific Time. Please note that it could end slightly earlier if supplies run out! ILNP planned for pre-orders to ship out on or before 11/26/2014 but there is a possibility that they meet a few delays that could push this date out several days. Please know that they will be doing our absolute best to get them out on time!
Thank you for reading and sifting through all the photos! Phew, that was fun though. Please take a moment to comment and let me know if you’ll be picking up some or all of these gorgeous special effect polishes. Again, please know these are NOT DIFFICULT to remove. It’s just like removing regular polish whether you layer it over an undercoat of color, or on the bare nail. I LOVE that!
In case you wondered, here is info on ILNP 3-Free and cruelty free products!
“What is your vegan / cruelty free policy?
ILNP absolutely does not test our products on animals nor do we purchase materials from suppliers that do. We make a conscious effort to avoid purchasing animal/insect derived materials like carmine and guanine/pearl, etc. as there are plenty of synthetic alternatives that perform the same or even better.
Are your nail polishes 3-Free?
Yes! All ILNP nail polishes are 3 free! They DO NOT contain Toluene, Formaldehyde, or Dibutyl Phthalate.
What does 3-Free mean?
3-Free means that our nail polishes do not contain Toluene, Formaldehyde, or Dibutyl Phthalate. These 3 ingredients were previously used in most nail polish formulations until recent studies found them to be potentially harmful or irritable to humans. While these chemicals aren’t illegal to use in nail polish (although California law requires special labeling if used), most large brands have already moved to 3-Free formulas at the urge of educated consumers as well as organizations that campaign for safe cosmetics.”
