Pt. 1 ILNP Fall 2015 Collection, thus it begins!

Fresh off the block, not even on the site yet but Barbra from ILNP has already started showcasing some of her Fall 2015 collection on social media. To wet your appetite, today I’ll start off with three of the 17 polishes. They include, Multichromes, Ultra Chrome flakies, Holographics, and mega shiny glitter bombs. I want to emphasize that this indie polish company has been around a long while, has excellent customer service, and fabulous products you can trust. They will be available for Pre-Order on September 4th. Let’s get started!

Greatness is a stunning addition to ILNP’s line of Multichromes. Note: I do not have the detailed descriptions on these polishes as they haven’t been written yet! So, I’ll just wing it the best I can for now.

Greatness is what a multichrome should be. Super glossy, opaque and not streaky. It's one of my faves!

Greatness is a multichrome and wow, the formula is amazing! More opaque than a lot of multichromes or duochromes I've used. 2-3 coats but I reached full opacity in 2! It's a rich satiny bronze that shifts to gold and ruby and copper. Maybe even some green indoors!

Overnight Bag is the perfect shade and finish for Fall!

Overnight Bag is a glossy plum raisin with holographic particles thrown in. I know, the bottle throws a bit of an eggplant hue, but it leans more to the berry side of the spectrum.

Next we have Glory. The gorgeous Ultra Chrome Flakies just keep coming and each one is drool-worthy. It’s a perfect shiny compliment for any fall shade.

Here is the Ultra Chrome Flaky, Glory, over Overnight Bag, plus a clear topcoat. I did NOT want to take this combo off!

Glory, a new Ultra Chrome Flaky! Since I'm very early in putting these out here, I don't have full detailed descriptions of the Fall 2015 collection. So I shall do my best! Once these are listed on ILNP.com, you can get their details then. Glory is a 'glorious' new Ultra Chrome Flaky polish in a clear base. From my observation, the UCFs shift from bronze, to gold, to magenta and even to green.

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.”

Chloe & Bella, 4 more indie stunners you MUST have!

I’m telling you, this has been a fabulous swatching week for me and every polish I’ve used have been out of this world. I especially love the care and attention to detail my indie girls put into their fabulous products. Chloe & Bella polishes are amazing and these four I have to share with you speak for themselves. So I will just load you up with photos, starting now!

From left to right: Jasper, Dragon's Skin, Tiger's Eye and Peacock. All are perfection!

Wet your appetite? Here we go! Starting with Dragon’s Skin! It’s a gorgeous multi colored metallic flakie polish, and be sure to check out it’s sister polish Dragon’s Breath!

Dragon's Skin is the second in a pair of chrome flakie polishes from Chloe & Bella. Gorgeous flakies in a clear base can be used alone 2-3 coats (I used 2) or over a base color like I did here. I used Chloe & Bella's black creme, Black Out, also available on the web site!

Dragon's Skin is described as, "an astonishingly gorgeous nail polish that shifts through green to gold to copper, and contains an electrifying platinum colored sparkle. This is not a glitter polish! Dragon's Skin is colored by chameleon flakes and infused with super-shiny silver covered flakes that give it a shine that will knock your socks off!" Color: Green/Copper/Gold with platinum/silver sparks. Texture: Dragon's Skin will dry completely smooth on the nail. Coverage: Dragon's Skin has light coverage with one coat, and full coverage with two coats.

Next up are three stunning multichrome polishes (see descriptions in the photos), Jasper, Tiger’s Eye and Peacock!

Jasper is a lovely multichromatic polish and the formula is FABULOUS! Shimmery Color shifts from bronze to wine, to green, gold and probably even more! I used only one coat, but I think they suggest 1-2 depending on your technique.

Jasper, how I love thee! This multichrome shimmery color shifter is total genius!

Tiger's Eye is another huge hit with me, not only is the formula amazing, but the color shifts in this gem are mesmerizing. From bronze to forest green, gold to garnet and beyond. I tried to mimic the effect of the gem Tiger's Eye on my accent nail. I used to have a ring with one in it but I couldn't find it. :-( Sad face, so sad. LOL

Tiger's Eye is the same great formula as the other two multichrome shimmers. So amazing!

Oh my goodness, get this one! You can't stop staring at your nails, seriously. I used a few pieces of peacock feathers on my accent nail.

Peacock is described as, "Peacock is a gorgeous multichrome that features flashes of green, blue, and violet. Depending on the light source and viewing angle, this polish appears completely different! Texture: Peaccok will dry smooth on the nail. Coverage: Peacock  has medium coverage with one coat, and full coverage with three coats.  We recommend using a black base coat because it brings out the various flashes of color." The formula is supreme!

A bit of inspiration for you from my Zoya Mystery trio promo

As I’m getting through my mountain of polishes that were waiting for me, I’m back from vacation and I’m almost caught up! I wanted to throw in this quick manicure that just popped into my head while staring at the three polishes included as a mystery mini trio from the January 2014 Zoya promo. I read a lot of “on-the-fence” reactions to these three little bottles.

In case you missed it, these are the  Zoya's January 2015 Mystery Trio (minis) came with the 3 for Free pay $15 shipping. Upon opening the box I was not surprised as I had already seen photos being posted on Instagram and when mine arrived I was out of town. I was not sure these would fit into my polish life but Zoya polishes are always great formulas and worth a try. And they were free! I have to say these formulas are perfect! Here is Charlott, Anais and Severine.

Here is Charlott, Anais and Severine.

But you know what? I like them! The khaki shade Charlott is super pigmented and applies like butter. Only two coats and it dries glossy and fast. Anais is a warm (almost brownish bronze shimmer) pewter and two coats will reach full opacity as well. In the bottle I thought, meh. Then I applied and immediately fell in love. And finally Severine is a white gold metallic and with careful 2-coat application you can nearly get by without metallic streaks. But it’s so pretty, it’s totally worth it. I have to say that this Peter Som ensemble is quite lovely. Not a part of Zoya’s core line but I wish they were. I’d love full size bottles. Here is my mani!

Looking for a little inspiration for your mystery polishes? As these were featured with the A/W 2012 Runway show colab with designer Peter Som, it just looked like my design should be based on the fashion plate idea. I used all three with a dry marble using Charlott at the base and marbled Anais and Severine.

Did you receive this long-awaited promo? I mean, seriously long because Zoya experienced an unprecedented response to this promotion. I ordered a few lemmings, Dot, Sooki and Lo. Have you used your minis yet? Post them on Instagram, I’d love to see them!

Drink With Me & Bronze Me Baby by Madam Glam, delicious!

I have two of six polishes sent to me from Madam Glam to share with you today. Drink With Me and Bronze Me Baby. I’ll be following up with the last four in a very near future post! But first, let me help you drool over these beauties!

Bronze Me Baby and Drink With Me. Both perfect formulas! I love the textured glitzyness of Bronze Me Baby yet easy to remove formula. Drink With Me is what all shimmery cremes should be!

Drink With Me by Madam Glam is the quintessential deep deep burgundy wine. It’s almost like having a Cabernet with a slight sexy shimmer on your nails.

Here is two thin easy coats, taken in my sunroom. The subtle shimmer allows the wine to shine, and glints of light play within.

Drink With Me is a Purple plum. It is described as: "This deep plum color will make a great fall manicure. Holding that glass of red wine has never looked this classy! Very subtle shimmers. One to two coats for full opacity. Very smooth to apply." Sooo Glossy!

Application is as near to pigmented perfection as it comes. The formula is what I like to see in all cremes and shimmers like this. It stays buttery smooth and wet for the duration that you apply it to each fingernail. It never drags or get ahead of itself. It doesn’t pool or goop up on you. It’s patient and kind! Lol yet it dries fairly quickly to such a glossy finish, you’ll wonder if you already applied a gloss topcoat and slept through it!

Bronze Me Baby is another huge win. This formula…wow! Love love love it!

Bronze Me Baby is so femme yet has that edgey texture we all love. And EASY to remove!

Bronze Me Baby is a glittery golden pink. It is described as: "A fusion between gold and pink, topped with shiny glitter. What more can you ask from a nail polish?" This reminds me of rose gold. I love the texture on this. Very much like the original Pixie Dusts by Zoya.

Totally in love with this delicate rose gold texture. It's not snaggy and such an easy quick mani, two this coats!

I can’t wait to show you the rest. I’m trying desperately to stay caught up with all my swatching. With about a dozen polishes waiting in the wings and even more winging their way through the postal service presently, I say to winter, “Bring it on!” My nails and my camera are ready 😉 Footnote: I hit my pointer finger nail on a grocery cart today…no, I didn’t swear but I wanted to! I broke the tip off the nail of my model hand, so, looks like I’ll be shortening those nails a bit so they all match. So my next swatches my nails will be more “working length” but oh well, they grow fast thank goodness!

I need to also mention, Madam Glam not only updated their bottle designs, great brushes I might say. But the boxes that hold up to three polishes are super sturdy and well packaged. Great touch and attention to detail. I love that!

Madam Glam offers a myriad of shades in Vampy shades, neutrals, Neons, Pastels, Glitters and Golds. They also have Soak Off Gel polishes, foundations and lipsticks. All are full size .5 oz beautifully packaged bottles. All Madam Glam products are “five-free”: Product does not contain Formaldehyde, Toluene, DiButyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde Resin Or Camphor.

Also, you get free shipping for orders over $30.
