And it’s a wrap! My last 5 ILNP swatches for the Fall 2016 Collection

Here are the last five of the ILNP Fall 2016 and Fall Neutrals! What a glorious lineup this has been. I always love ILNP Fall shades. I will get right to it since the Pre-Order starts tomorrow on the 16th of Sept., and there is no time to waste! Special discount when you pre-order.

Chocolate Slate from the Fall 2016 collection by ILNP is described as, "Chocolate Slate is a deliciously rich dark chocolate-brown shade with subtle hints of auburn. Delicately accented with a precise trifecta of gold, yellow gold, and copper flakes, Chocolate Slate is a premium truffle with undeniable character. To top it all off, Chocolate Slate has been dusted with a premium holographic twinkle for a heavenly finish that is sure to delight your palate!" I used 2 coats. I don't know if it was the way the sun was peeking in and out of the clouds when I snapped this picture but my images kept coming out looking more berry like. There is a slightly more chocolately tint to this IRL~

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.”

Hidden treasures at Rue21

Just a quick post here in case you’ve been shopping at Rue21 boutique stores in your local mall and missed these hidden gems! This spring I picked up a few more polishes, usually found near the checkout counter at Rue21 shops. If you are concentrating on apparel shopping at Rue21, open your eyes and look a little closer. I’ve been picking up these little treasures (well, actually they are full size) for a couple of years now. Like this summery neon fuscia shade, simply named 069. For the life of me I can’t figure out why most shades are nameless in the different bottle shapes found there. No matter. I love the formulas, price 2/$5 and the shades available.

I'm loving these Truely Yours polishes by Rue21! This Neon fuscia (069) has a golden flash and really sets it apart.

I also picked up this cute little dreamcatcher ring at Rue. These come in gold, copper and silver.

Oh yeah, ONE COATER HERE! I mean, wow! I have more to share, but right now I’m kind of busy packing for our move this summer! I’m giving preference to my indie and mainstream blogger samples and have some coming up waiting for my attention. But since I already had this beauty swatched, I didn’t want to forget I had it! Check out your Rue21 for more hidden treasures!

Morgan Taylor Ooh LaLa collection is très jolie!

Morgan Taylor has nailed the sophisticated shades of French fashion with the new collection, Ooh LaLa. Oh the glitter, the glam! You’ll be on-trend and on-point wearing these four shades in any combination. They beg for nail art, from beginner to advanced, this palette will bring out the artist in you! Let’s take a look.

Bonjour mes amies! Presenting the Ohh LaLa collection of Morgan Taylor. Four gorgeous lacquers inspired by all thing fab, French and flirty! From left: Amour Color Please, Escar-Go To France, Postacards From Paris and Cancan We Dance?

Now, I took over four years of French in school, and now that I’m “mature”, I’ve lost a lot of my French conversational linguistics…badly! But every now and then, I’ll hear a word or phrase and some of it comes floating back to my lips. But I won’t torture you. It’s a good thing you don’t have to hear me! Anyway, let’s begin with the most perfect formula! They are all good, but this petite beauté had me oohing and ahhing! Amour Color Please is perfect.

Amour Color Please is a bright berry fuscia creme with a whisper of blue flash. This is one coat, that's all you need! Perfect formula, very pigmented. Accented here with a bit of French whimsy and on the pinky, the glitter topper in the quad called Escar-Go To France.

Escar-Go To France is a sugary treat of multi pastels of complimentary colors to the whole collection. The added holographic silver sets it off perfectly. I love it over every shade in the set but over black, c’est magnifique!

Escar-Go To France is the perfectly complimentary glitter topper to the collection. The clear base is filled with multi-sized rounds and hexes from medium to small in pastels of tiffany blue, rosey pink, white, and holographic silver. One thin coat over any shade and super easy to remove, no glitter nightmares here!

Next up is Postcards From Paris. This very pigmented Tiffany creme just reminds me of springtime in Paris. I have a few shades like this, but this one is a much fresher shade.

Postcards From Paris is a gorgeous Tiffany turquoise creme. I used two coats and although it's very pigmented, the first coat was every so slightly streaky. But the second coat makes it just right. On the accent nail is the glitter topper, Escar-Go to France over black.

And to finish off this quartette of fanciful and classy bunch, is Cancan We Dance? She’s a bit more of a free spirit this one! How can she help it? 😉 Her iridescent blue flash, look like the petite coats of a dance girl.

Cancan We Dance? is an elegant blushing coral creme, with the same hint of blue flash as Amour Color Please. The formula is a bit thinner and did require two coats.

Bottom line: I loved the inspiration of this collection. It’s always easier to me when a collection has a common theme. But just as important is the fact that the formulas and unique shades have to grab me. These really did!

Brilliant Pink Ice lacquers from Rue21

Brilliant Pink Ice lacquers from Rue21

I’ve been haunting the cosmetic racks at Rue21 shops since last fall. I’d read somewhere on Instagram that these little boutique franchises carried their own line of polishes. So while Christmas shopping I decided to drop in a few of these stores at the mall.

Pink Ice polishes come in a wide variety of colors.

Pink Ice polishes come in a wide variety of colors.


I’ve been finding some nice polishes, always discounted, at Claire’s and Icing, but it never occurred to me to check places like Rue21, Forever21, American Outfitters and even dare I say, Victoria’s Secret for polish! But there they were!

I especially like Pink Ice’s square bottles that contain these creative colors. The polish is pretty decent for an average cost of 2/$5 US! They carry textured glitters, glitter bombs, shimmers, cremes, flakie crellies, jellies, metallics and milky indieesque polishes. My only beef is that most of what I’ve found are not named, only labeled with style numbers. I like names and it can’t be that hard! But here are a few from my collection.

Pink Ice, please name your polishes. They're so awesome! :-)

Pink Ice, please name your polishes. They’re so awesome! 🙂


The lineup of the bottle back labels correspond with what is on my nails here. On the left, pinkie finger is a pretty crelly with some white matte flakies and shreds, pink foil flakies and glitter and silver glitter. Three coats to opacity. Very femme! Then on my ring finger is one of my faves, a satin finish orchid that is to die for! You can also gloss it up and I did on the free edge. It’s the only one of these four with a name, Far Out Purple. Two coats and gorgeous! Then we have on the middle finger is a brilliant jelly filled with lots of royal blue matte flakies. I used three coats here but I think it might be interesting to do two coats over a like color. Then on my pointer finger a very close in style to the previous, only it’s a brilliant pinky purple. Note, all these dry quickly and easy to apply, nice formulas!

I have others from Pink Ice to review. I may even get to them 😉 Not all Rue21 stores carry the same colors. You won’t find much help online either. Just check out yours and let me know what you find!
