ILNP Fall 2015 swatches…and I’m on the home stretch!

I’m down to three ILNP Fall polishes after this and I’m ecstatic with today’s entry. Presenting Cameo (H), Clockwork and After Midnight. These are all different formulas and finishes so it was fun to mix it up today. Let’s see how different they are!

First up is Cameo (H), Cameo’s big sister. It’s a holographic version and the color shifts are nearly countless depending on angle, lighting and even the amount of coats used! I used 2 and it’s suggested 2-3.

Ultra Chromes by ILNP are amazing and Cameo (H) is the holo version of it's sister, Cameo. And of course, you can't just show one angle of these  beauties because they are multi-shaded. Here in a shadier angle you can see shades of green, copper, gold and magenta.

Yes, same Cameo (H)…amazing huh?

Cameo (H) in sunlight or flash really lets that purple shine through.

Cameo (H) is described as, "a holographic version of the original Cameo Ultra Chrome polish! The new Cameo (H) contains just the right amount of holographic splendor to add a beautiful rainbow sparkle to the polish. All without ruining the intense color shift effect! Cameo (H) effortlessly shifts through an incredible array of vivid pink, purple, copper, gold, and a stunningly vibrant green. Quite similar to the Masquerade Ultra Chrome, Cameo (H) leans more pink and has an even stronger color shifting effect. Cameo (H) is part of ILNP’s "Ultra Chrome" class of multichromatic nail polishes; formulated to apply directly to the nail without the need for a base color. Fully opaque in 2-3 coats!"

Clockwork is perfect for fall, glitzy but very classy.

Clockwork is one of those classy metallics that really attract attention. Wear this baby and you won't even feel like you need jewelry! 2 coats!

Clockwork is described as, "a jaw dropping bronze holographic with an extremely bright metallic finish. The assortment of metallic flakes coupled with a range of holographic particles, all dipped in a silky beige base, give Clockwork a truly unique combination of class and head turning vibrancy. Clockwork is part of ILNP’s “Precious Metals” class of incredibly vivid metallic finish nail polishes; specifically formulated with various ultra-thin metallic flakes for a blinding sparkle with an undeniably rich finish and super-easy removal!"

The three I have left to share with you are Maiden Lane, First Class and Lulu. All these are available now for order so don’t wait for me. Go take a look!

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.”

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 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.

Cult Cosmetics, two new shades made for each other

I love the formulas of Cult Cosmetics polishes anyway, and here are two more that didn’t disappoint. I finally got to try out Huntington Beach and it’s amazing. Now, I just noticed on Facebook that the real Huntington Beach, CA, just had a freak storm laying down about 1/2″ of hail making it look like it snowed there! Wow, that global warming is a diva! LOL But seriously, in honor of that great beach, here is a super simple mani using Huntington Beach polish and accented with a dry brushing and trident of Whisky A Go Go!

It's like Huntington Beach and Whisky A Go Go were made for each other!

On Top: "A rich marsala red. Our 'Color of the Year'! Huntington Beach polish pairs perfectly with long nights, warm fires, and red wine. A sensual red to inspire your most romantic mani ever." On Bottom: "A bold, full glitter coat. Whisky a Go Go is for all you bright, bold, beautiful sparklers. This thick, gold glitter will make you feel like royalty as you party like a princess."

I should mention, Whisky A Go Go is a one coater glitter. And Huntington Beach is opaque in two coats. Buttery formula as well!

Cult Cosmetics lacquers are premium, 5-FREE, Vegan, cruelty-free single coat polishes and makeup products. None of their polishes are animal tested and they are made in California, USA.
