Two more new Ultra Holos from ILNP!

Today I’m sharing with you the last two of the 10 brand spankin’ new Ultra Holo polishes from ILNP. Did I have a favorite? I’ll never tell. Actually, I loved them all! They are all available to order now along with 11 new summer polishes (which I’ll be sharing in the coming weeks)! Be patient with me, I’m in the middle of packing to move as well as sprucing up the house we are selling. I’m telling you, This will be our last move, ever! It’s hard work. Well, I got off track. Here are the swatches, Walking Home and Missed Calls.

I love this deep purple sparkler, Walking Home!

Walking home is described as, "Walking Home is a deliciously juicy grape holographic nail polish that is sure to drop jaws! Step outside with this beautiful Ultra Holo on your fingertips and you'll gush at the blindingly incredible sparkle radiating from your nails.  Walking Home is part of ILNP's new "Ultra Holo" class of super intense holographic nail polishes; specifically formulated for maximum, in-your-face holographic sparkle! Fully opaque in 2 to 3 coats!" It only took 2 coats for me!

I simply had to share a macro of this complex stunner, Walking Home.

The only time missed calls is pretty, in when it’s a polish! Here is Missed Calls!

Deep and mysterious and full of sparkle! Missed Calls is described as, "Missed Calls is definitely here to make a statement! Inside of this black nail polish is so much holographic sparkle that it practically explodes off the nail. Don't miss this one! Missed Calls is part of ILNP's new "Ultra Holo" class of super intense holographic nail polishes; specifically formulated for maximum, in-your-face holographic sparkle! Fully opaque in 2 to 3 coats!" Again, this only took 2 coats for me!

I have a feeling with "Missed Calls" on your nails you may get LOTS of calls! ;-)

All 10 of the new Ultra Holos are available to order now at ILNP.com and sell for $10 ea. I highly recommend each and every one.

Here are a few fabulous facts for your shopping pleasure.

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.”

3 of the Boardwalk Collection from Virago Vanish, I’m in love!

Oh wow, this is what summer neon polishes should be folks! Pigmented, non-staining, one-coater, no white undercoats. These babies from Virago Varnish have it all. I have 3 of the 9 available shades in this stunning collection. I’ll say it right away, GET THEM!

Wowza! I have three of Virago's Boardwalk collection for summer 2015 and are these beach babes bright! From left, Tsunami Mommy, Summer Highlighter of My Life and Paradise Pool.

Here are the swatches and descriptions!

For Tsunami Mommy I did a fun dry brush of the three shades over a glossy black on the accent nail

Virago describes Tsunami Mommy as, "Watch out for this mommy! Tsunami Mommy is a bright pink neon lacquer that will have onlookers gazing at your nails. A white base is not needed to achieve full opacity. For long-lasting neon manicures, we recommend the use of our Clutch Base Coat and Lambent Top Coat." Seriously folks, this is a hyper pigmented one-coater and NO white undies! It does dry satiny so if you want a glossy look you should use a clear topcoat.

On the Summer Highlighter… accent nail I dotted with Tsunami Mommy and Paradise Pool!

Neon yellow in one coat, no white undies? Yes please! Virago describes this beauty as, "Your future will be as bright as a highlighter wearing this lacquer. Summer Highlighter Of My Life is an extremely bright and opaque yellow neon crème nail lacquer. A white base is not needed to achieve full opacity. For long-lasting neon manicures, we recommend the use of our Clutch Base Coat and Lambent Top Coat."

For Paradise Pool I did a fun dry brush of the three shades over a glossy black on the accent nail.

Fabulously pigmented Paradise Pool! Virago describes it as, "Ready to take a dip? Why not into Paradise Pool? Paradise Pool is a bright pool blue neon lacquer. As with all Virago Varnish neon lacquers, a white base is not needed to achieve full opacity. For long lasting neon manicures, we recommend the use of our Clutch Base Coat and Lambent Top Coat." Isn't that refreshing?!

Morgan Taylor Hello Pretty! collection…last duo is Electric Pop

The final duo set I have to show you today is the Electric Popelectric pop box, which includes two seriously poppin’ shades. The neon pink is called Pop-arrazi Pose and the super bright purple is Anime-zing Color!

Wow! This duo is brilliant! Electric Pop includes a hot pink neon creme called Pop-Arazzi Pose and a sassy nearly neon purple called Anime-Zing Color!

Wow! This duo is brilliant! Electric Pop includes a hot pink neon creme called Pop-Arazzi Pose and a sassy nearly neon purple called Anime-Zing Color!

Both of these shades are quick drying, easy to work with, take 2-3 coats and dry to a satin finish. Adding a glossy topcoat is optional. Both are great for nail art!

I wanted you to see how these neon shades dry from the Hello Pretty! Electric Pop duo. Both are serious neons, the pink Pop-arazzi Pose more than the purple Anime=zing Color! They are both beautiful whether you leave them satin or add a glossy topcoat. Both take 2-3 coats depending on your technique. I used 3 coats for the pink and 2 coats for the purple.

4 gorgeous lacquers from wHet by Me! Bath

If you’ve never had the opportunity to try wHet nail lacquers, you NEED to get your hands on them. I have never been disappointed by any of them. Highly glossy finishes, rich pigments and longlasting wear, you can’t go wrong with these polishes and they are worth every penny. Let’s get right to them.

I’ll start with the gorgeously reformulated pink creme, Ethereal.

Only needing 2 coats, the newly reformulated, highly pigmented high shine Ethereal is a perfect pink creme.

I love a good gold polish and although I supposed I own plenty, they all have different qualities. I love Opulent because the formula is so superior to many I’ve tried.

And last, but a new fave of mine, Yesternight! Wow, I can’t wait to try this in the fall. Such a deep blackberry and since it’s sort of a jelly the shine is never-ending. Of course it’s perfect for any time of year, but I think it has Fall written all over it.

I was so pleasantly surprised with Yesternight. I really thought it was going to be black, but it's a rich blackberry jelly-like polish and is very pigmented and super glossy. Only 2 coats.

2nd installment for Morgan Taylor’s Hello Pretty! duos, Cupcake Cute-Ture

Today I’d like to share the second of three beautiful duo sets, available NOW at Loxa Beauty. Cupcake Cute-Ture is a mouth-watering set containing a shimmery mint green and a shocking neon coral creme. Let’s take a look!

Cupcake Cute-Ture is an adorable set with a shimmery oriental green called Do You Harajuku? and a nearly neon coral called Manga-Round With Me.

Cupcake Cute-Ture is an adorable set with a shimmery oriental green called Do You Harajuku? and a nearly neon coral called Manga-Round With Me.

I LOVE neon corals and this creme did not disappoint. Typical perfectly creamy formula for MT lacquers, Manga-Round With Me is a tan loving, brilliant coral. It really gave my camera fits trying to balance my skin tone with that neon!

Manga-Round With Me applied perfectly in two coats, is slightly satin in finish and a brilliant neon coral creme. I have to say, I'm in love with this one!

Now, this is unusual for Morgan Taylor formulas, but this pretty little mint number, Do You Harajuku?, did not want to cooperate. It’s on the thick side, streaky on the first two coats but finally settles down on the third. I highly recommend letting each coat dry a good 5 minutes and it’s all good.

Do You Harajuku? requires three coats and this gorgeous shimmery mint is on the thick side, making it a bit of a challenge to apply evenly. The outcome is stunning but application did vex me! lol

It made a gorgeous base for a little “Cute-Ture” nail art!

Lovely shade of pale green mint with a hint of shimmer. Do You Harajuku? may be a bit of an unforgiving formula straight, but all it's all good when you add nail art. The neon coral creme Mango-Round With Me in the Cupcake Cute-Ture duo teams up beautifully!

SquareHue Decades Collection 06.15 1950s is cool!

I love this month’s installment from the monthly subscription service, SquareHue! Bright, happy and vibrant high gloss cremes take us down memory lane to the 1950s. It was such a happy time with many firsts of the century. Disneyland opened in 1955, Elvis was king, and Alaska joined the USA in 1959. The post war boom brought about many new technologies. What a great time! But enough of the history lesson, let’s take a look at these babies!

SquareHue Decades Collection for 06.15 is 1950s. Brilliant selection of high gloss cremes SH! From left: Palm Springs 1950, Belair 1957 and Sock Hop 1958.

First up is Palm Springs 1950!

Palm Springs 1950 is a bright but not quite neon green. Although is starts out streaky, 3 thin coats is all it takes for a perfect finish.

I want to clear something up while we are discussing the Palm Springs shade. It is not a dupe for 04.14’s Beethoven Straat. See below.

I had to bring something to light. Since swatches and bottle shots have begun to appear on blogs and social media, I've noticed a bit of discussion about these two polishes. Some have complained that Palm Springs from the Decades collection for June is simply a renamed dupe for Beethoven Straat from April 2014. Nope! As you can see here and on my nail swatches, both are indeed light nearly neon green. However, Beethoven Straat is a bit of a milkier formula giving it a creamier appearance and lighter as well. Palm Springs is a deeper version of Beethoven Straat and not as milky. Clearly two different polishes. No dupes here.

There is a difference on the nail as well. You can see here, with three coats each, Beethoven Straat and Palm Springs dry to a glossy shine.

Now that we have that out-of-the-way, let’s move on to Bel Air 1957.

Bel Air 1957 is a creamy sky blue with a super glossy finish. These kinds of blue get my motor runnin'!

Finally, here is Sock Hop 1958. I want to disclose that I never got to go to one because I was only 3 years old at the time 😉

Sock Hop 1958 is a bubblegum pink and such a glorious shine it will make you want to dance and shout! Each shade I used three coats but this one seems a bit more pigmented and you could get away with two.

Final thoughts. I love this collection even though they were all the same finish. When they are this glossy and fabulous, I say bring ’em on! All were on the thin side, but no pooling. I used three coats with each although the Sock Hop seemed a bit thicker and more pigments. You could get by with two.
