I have 13 new polishes from ILNP to share with you for Fall 2016, but for today, we will start out with the first four. Let’s take a look!

Oh my goodness, Highline is a gorgeous mulichrome shade shifting stunner. No matter what direction the light comes in it never looks the same. From a strong golden brass, to pine green, burgundy to bronze, this one is breathtaking. 2 coats.

From the 2016 Fall collection by ILNP, Sitting Fireside is another shade shifter, although less obvious, the holo sparkled berry sneaks in a fiery red from time to time. 2 coats.

Clever Girl from the Fall 2016 ILNP collection is a delicate teal base highlighted with pinkish holographic sparkles. 2 to 3 coats, but I liked it more sheer using 2.

Alexander from the new Fall 2016 collection is described as, "a uniquely intricate holographic shade that sits on the line between olive-green, light brown, and even grey in certain types of lighting. Formulated for maximum depth, Alexander is packed with just the right amount of varying holographic pigments for a tremendously busy sparkle in direct light." Here he is in two coats.

Conclusion: So far and no surprise, each of these apply like butter, shine like heck and are the epitome of Autumn. I can’t wait to show you more so stay tuned!

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.”

CND Vinylux Autumn Wedding trio

I received the CND Vinylux Weekly Polish Autumn Wedding trio recently from RPR Marketing. The trio is a fanciful mix of dark and light. Negligee is a perfect semi-sheer pink for the bride. Or maybe in keeping with tradition of “something blue”, Creekside as a pale blue creme that is very bride or bridesmaid appropriate. Faux Fur is a deep chocolate cream, and a perfect choice for an autumn themed wedding.

Fall Wedding in your near future? Here's a fancy trio that might work for you! Left: Creekside, top: Faux Fur, right: Negligee.

“Something Old, Something New, Something Brown & Something Blue.”

Negligee is a semi-sheer pink nude with a very delicate touch of blue shimmer, 2-4 depending on how sheer you want it.

My fave of the bunch, Negligee is a sheer pale pink with a touch of blue shimmer. the formula is glossy and in two coats you get an innocent, creamy and delicate effect. I think you might get full opacity in 3 coats, but I loved the semi-sheer look of 2.

Creekside is a light, sky blue creme. 2 coats.

Creekside is a creamy baby blue, 2 coats and a glossy finish. Perfect for "something blue"!

Faux Fur is a dark chocolate-brown creme, very opaque and fairly glossy.

Faux Fur is a dark chocolate brown creme, very opaque and fairly glossy.

CONCLUSION: Negligee was my favorite, and I don’t often say that about sheers or semi-sheers. But this shade and formula also excels at correcting yellow tints to the nail. 2 coats and you could not see the slightly yellow tinge I have on my natural nails from repeated polish use. Faux Fur had a couple of problems although once I applied both coats and shook the heck out of the bottle, the little brown pigment specs finally mixed through. I think it was a bottle that hadn’t been properly mixed. But it’s fine now. Creekside, and I’ve featured it before, was as perfect as a pale blue cream can get!

In this segment I’ll be sharing indie polish maker, Jamie, Glitter Lambs Fall 2015 lineup of golden glitters. Butterscotch Corn Maze, Golden Leaves and Hay Ride. Disclaimer, I love how bar glitter looks, I just fail at the technique! That being said, let’s take a look at these gold beauties, for sale now at Glitter Lambs online stores.

Indie polish maker, Glitter Lambs, will be presenting a whopping 14 glitter toppers for fall this year. I have them all and I’ll be sharing a couple at a time.

Ember, it’s so hot, it’s cool!

"Ember can be best described as a deep, fiery red liquid metal with enough blue to be wearable for all skin tones." Again, absolutely perfect formula, one coat. It was so hard to make up my mind which of these was my favorite, but this is most surely a contender.
