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.”

Part of the Jior Couture As a MATTEr of Fall Collection for 2015

Today I’m sharing with you the first half of the Fall 2015 collection, “As a MATTEr of Fall” by indie cosmetics company, Jior Couture! It is a collection of 6 matte lacquers, all containing flakies.These perfect matte polishes I have today are: Scenic, Harvest and Frost. The whole collection will be available for purchase on Sept. 25th!

This is half of the "As a MATTEr of Fall" Collection by Jior Couture. Gorgeous velvety mattes that are easy to apply, perfect formulas! From left: Scenic, a dark blue matte with multicolored holo flakes. Harvest, a greenish leaning mustard yellow with holographic flakes. And Frost, a dark grey with holographic flakes, seem mostly aqua.

And Frost, a dark grey with holographic flakes, seem mostly aqua.

Let’s get a closer look at these beauties. Note, I swatched these using the 9 ml bottles. No problems with the minis (I’m not sure at this point if they will be released in this size but I had no issues with either the formulas or the full size brushes).

Scenic by Jior Couture is a beautiful dark blue denim shade with tiny holo flakes. Totally in love with this one, 2 coats. These dry fast and matte perfectly.

Harvest is a greenish mustard yellow and frankly, I was worried about this shade with my complexion. But after applying it, I was really impressed! 1 coat!

Frost is a gorgeous dark felt grey with holo flakes. The flakes don't show up as much as the other two. Still gorgeous though. Perfect for sweater weather! 2 coats.

*The release date for The fall 2015 collection is Sept 25.

Conclusion: I’m seriously impressed with these matte polishes. Sometimes mattes can come off as a more satiny finish and not quite matte enough. These are full on mattes with a really velvety finish. So perfect for fall. Fast drying and sturdy.

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.

Two more beauties from ILNP Summer 2015 Collection

I’ve got a ways to go with my swatches from indie polish company’s ILNP (I Love Nail Polish) Summer collections. But I’ve been in the middle of a move and I’m just trying to get caught up. I had already swatched these two gorgeous polishes from the Summer collection for 2015. Now that I’m “somewhat” settled, I wanted to get these posted asap.

First up from the 11 bottles in this collection is So Coral! It’s a tan lover!

So Coral is described as: "So Coral is a soft neon coral crelly nail polish that dries glossy and screams summertime! Incredibly bright and fun, So Coral is just perfect for those bright summer days! Depending on the light you're under, So Coral may lean more pink or more orange. Hard to photograph but wonderful to wear! Fully opaque in 3 to 4 coats." I barely needed 3.

And just as stunning and one of ILNP’s faves from this summer’s additions is Summer Crush.

Summer Crush is described as: "Summer Crush is a tasty bubblegum pink neon nail polish with just the right touch of super sweet holographic sparkle.  This vivid beauty is so yummy and vibrant; it's the perfect compliment to a bright summer day!"

Two more NEW additions to the ILNP Ultra Chrome Flaky line!

Well, I’m down to six ILNP Ultra Chrome Flakies to review for you, and they are available for pre-order now as of this date, 3/13/15. Today I’ll share a pair of new flakies to tempt you. Paradox and Paradox (H)! ILNP Ultra Chrome Flakies are fully opaque and can be worn alone or over any color without affecting the intense color shifting properties. Here is a sneak peak (I previously posted) of the new lineup of polishes from ILNP for spring 2015.

Ultra Chrome Flakies (H) You know ILNP (I Love Nail Polish) LOVES polish when they can create such massive collections! Each one a winner.

First up is Paradox. ILNP says, “Paradox is an absolute jaw-dropping beauty of a nail polish!” I agree!

Brand new in the lineup is Paradox.

Brand new in the lineup is Paradox.

ILNP describes Paradox like this. "If Supernova was a little bit too green for you, Paradox is the answer! Just like Supernova, Paradox has an extreme color shift that travels through teal, blue, violet, pink, and fuchsia. Of course, you'll definitely catch glimpses of other colors at extreme angles and under different lighting conditions. You'll love it, guaranteed!" This is three thin coats with no undies.

This is three thin coats over the bare nail. Honestly, I'd have to show you a dozen shots to convey how many shades are possible with this amazing new flaky polish.

And its even blingier sister, Paradox (H). Paradox (H) is a holographic version of the original Paradox Ultra Chrome Flakie nail polish!

Brand new to the UCF (H) lineup is Paradox (H).

The new Paradox (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!

ILNP describes Paradox (H) like this. "If Supernova was a little bit too green for you, Paradox (H) is the answer! Just like Supernova, Paradox (H) has an extreme color shift that travels through teal, blue, violet, pink, and fuchsia. Of course, you'll definitely catch glimpses of other colors at extreme angles and under different lighting conditions. The added holographic touch in Paradox (H) is sure to add an extra vibrant touch that you're guaranteed to fall in love with!" I applied one light coat over black.

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.”

Say what?! Your eyes aren’t deceiving you. 27 brand new polishes are set for a March 6th pre-order and the next few days I’ll be sharing my swatches with you so you can start your shopping list. In this blog post I will share the Spring Collection, a total of 10 polishes in various finishes. Then coming up over the next few days, I will be posting 17 Ultra Chrome Flakies in a Holographic version, 4 (2 UCF/2UCFH) of which are totally new colors to the UCF family. Remember, you can pre-order the new spring polishes as well as the new Ultra Chrome HOLO flakies on March 6th! So let’s get started with the new Spring Collection. I’ve been swatching my digits to the bone and I have them all right here…right now! Warning, lots of images but I tried to compress them so the page won’t take too long to load.

Abundance (H)

Abundance (now in holo) is described as, Abundance is an absolutely gorgeous fall themed Ultra Chrome that couldn't be more suited to the colors of the season! Abundance effortlessly shifts through super vivid hues of red, orange, bronze, and gold. Now add to that holographic microparticles and you have a seriously gorgeous warm sparkler!

Mega (H) in regular indirect daylight! Barbra of ILNP says, "MEGA is the mother of all holographic nail polishes, period. It is not a top-coat. It’s a full-blown 100% all-thriller, no-filler SpectraFlair nail polish." She even suggest for fun to try adding a few drops of Mega to an old polish and watch the magic. Cool idea!
