Colorizing your world, one digit at a time

Happy Spring to all you lovers of this seasons colors. I have two beautiful Spring ILNP collections to share with you which I will present one today and the other later in the week. Today’s collection is the ILNP Jelly Collection. Six super smooth, glossy and sparkly jellies to sink your teeth into. First, let me share with you a taste of springtime in Texas! The Bluebonnets are in bloom and a host of other glorious colors with Indian Paintbrush, wild Buttercups and the delicate, yet thorny Mesquite.

And onto the ILNP Spring Jelly collection! They are all sheer to start and can be worn many ways, 2-4 coats for semi-sheer to fully opaque, sandwich them or whatever! All are smooth and glossy. They are $10ea or $60 for the ILNP Spring Jelly 2016 set.

Let’s begin with Bffs. A grape jelly with tons of sparkle and personality.

Sweet Pea, as fresh as the blooming flower it’s named after.

Sweet Pea in 3 coats! Super smooth. Sweet Pea is described as "a graceful and sweet seashell pink jelly that is incredibly versatile! This sheer stunner wears beautifully alone for a subtle pop of color with a glass-like shine and intense holographic sparkle or take it a step further and sandwich it with another favorite!

Conclusion: All six of these jellies were smooth as silk to apply. I recommend applying thin layers to maximize the dry time. I waited about 3 minutes after each coat. I have virtually no cleanup to do as these polishes apply without pooling and clean nicely to the brush. Every shade was super glossy, and the added sparkle set these jellies apart. I highly recommend this collection. I’d have loved to see a grass-green but maybe one is coming down the road. Love love love these!

Stay tuned as I have the other ILNP Spring Collection (7 in the set) coming this week. I can’t wait to show you!

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.”
