Four more Girls Around the World from BOii Cosmetics!

I’m so excited that BOii Cosmetics sent me more of their “Girls Around the World” polish collection for review. I started out not too long ago with two of the collection and found the formulas amazing. These next four I’m sharing with you today fall right in line. Great formulas, tons of pigment, super easy application and inspired shades.

Here are four more of the new collection from BOii Cosmetics, "Girls Around the World". From left: Dominican Girl, English Girl, Belizean Girl and American Girl.

How these adorable polishes arrive!

As usual, BOii has the cutest packing with these polishes, little gossamer yellow bags with gem trinkets tied on. Love them!

Let’s start with a gorgeous blue one, English Girl!

English Girl is a fabulous medium blue shimmer/metallic 1-2 coater, and the formula is like the others, perfection.

First up is Spiced Pumpkin Cider. I keep meaning to ask Jamie, does she come up with the names after thinking about the food, or create the glitter then name it after a food it reminds her of? LOL either way, they are always perfectly paired.

Spiced Pumpkin Cider over an orangey gold screams Fall! It's described as: "a clear base filled with small orange holographic hex."

Next up is Jack O Lantern. It’s Bootiful! 😉

I LOVE Jack O Lantern! Here it is with a couple of nail water decals from Born Pretty Store: the purple holo/shimmer is Rhythm and Booze by indie maker Indigo Bananas, and the glass fleck orange is Hot Lava by Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure. It is described as: "a clear base filled with black shreds and light peachy orange hex."

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.”

Hay Ride is described as a clear base will with Gold Holographic Slices. Butterscotch Corn Maze is a clear base filled with small butterscotch hex glitters.

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.

A sampling of BOii Cosmetics “Girls Around the World” polishes

This is my first experience working with the indie cosmetic company, BOii Cosmetics (Made for girls, inspired by boys). Today I get to show you part of the newest collection, “Girls Around the World”. The collection showcases colors from around the world, and I have Indian Girl and Japanese Girl! The collection will be available for purchase this weekend. I might add, these two colors are perfect for fall. I can’t wait to see what the other ‘places’ look like! Let’s get started.

Here are two of the new collection from BOii Cosmetics, "Girls Around the World", Indian Girl and Japanese Girl. Shimmery beauties :-)

How they arrived, too cute!

I love the packaging of these "Girls"~ Cute little fobs on these shimmery bags!

Indie creator, Kumari Brathwaite, creates beautiful cosmetics as well. “Boii cosmetics was started in 2012 by two sisters living in New Jersey. We initially became interested in creating nail polishes as a hobby, but was inspired by our awesome mom to evolve our hobby into a business and a career. Since then we have transitioned from nail polishes to now offering eye shadows and lipsticks.” Products include: Nail polish, nail art, face, jewelry, candles, bath and body.

Here is Indian Girl!

Indian Girl from the Girls Around the World Collection is a shimmery metallic deep gold polish. Very opaque and nearly a 1-coater. Not to mention a perfect shade and finish for fall!

Japanese Girl is a deep cherry shimmer metallic. It reminds me of a bing cherry shade. Vampy and also very pigmented. 2 coats.

Conclusion: I found the polishes dried fairly quickly, even as well-pigmented they were. The formulas were easy to apply, no flooding or thickness issues. No strong odors and the colors are really beautiful. Indian Girl is unique for a gold, it’s warm and shimmery, and very little streaking for a metallic. Japanese Girl is a beautiful deep red/burgundy with tons of shimmer. I do have some shades like it, but no dupes that I know of! I highly recommend these!

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!

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.

Ember, it’s so hot, it’s cool!

4 gorgeous lacquers from wHet by Me! Bath

If you’ve never had the opportunity to try wHet nail lacquers, you NEED to get your hands on them. I have never been disappointed by any of them. Highly glossy finishes, rich pigments and longlasting wear, you can’t go wrong with these polishes and they are worth every penny. Let’s get right to them.

I’ll start with the gorgeously reformulated pink creme, Ethereal.

And last, but a new fave of mine, Yesternight! Wow, I can’t wait to try this in the fall. Such a deep blackberry and since it’s sort of a jelly the shine is never-ending. Of course it’s perfect for any time of year, but I think it has Fall written all over it.

I was so pleasantly surprised with Yesternight. I really thought it was going to be black, but it's a rich blackberry jelly-like polish and is very pigmented and super glossy. Only 2 coats.

More new shades for Summer 2015 from Madam Glam

Aaaannnddd we have three more beauties from our friends at Madam Glam. I’ve been featuring their newest additions to the MG family for Summer 2015. I continue to be blown away. Did I already mention that these polishes are quite long wearing? That’s a great plus for you gals that don’t change polish as often as I do! Let’s get this Party started!

Three more beauties. From left, are; Rock Star, a pink holo glitter in a clear base. Amazing over any shade! Party nights is a golden glitter in a clear base, perfect to glitz up your daytime mani. And Candy Coat. This sweet purple creme will make you drool!

Here is one of my faves. Rock Star is a pink holographic topper that so feminine and amazing over any color.

Here is one light coat of this pink holo glitter called Rock Star over Chocolate Dream by Madam Glam! Love this combo. Rock Star is described as, "Holographic Glitters. Wear it by itself or on top of a color. No matter how you choose to rock it, it will definitely make its presence noticed! Formula is Holographic glitters in a transparent base. One coat for an even coverage."

Candy Coat blew me away! In a sweet way. 😉

Be still my beating heart! Candy Coat is a dream! A big, shiny, purple coated dream! 2 coats.

Party Nights and summer go together like tiki lights and beach bonfires! Super smooth micro glitter topper.

Party Nights! This micro gold glitter top in a clear base is perfect as a glitter topper, used as a glitter gradient over a color (as seen here over Candy Coat), or 3-4 coats for full coverage. Very smooth!

I still have more coming so stay tuned. It’s always such a joy working with Elsa and the Madam Glam team. Seriously superb customer service and a plethora of other products to amaze you!

Oh, side note: I apologize for not “presentin'” with more nail art, gems etc., on my recent manis. I’m just trying to get these colors out to you for your shopping pleasure. I’m sure you’d prefer to see the products in all their glory than see my feeble attempts at art. LOL But seriously, I’ve been uuber busy of late helping my hubby finalize liquidation of his folk’s estate (his mom passed away in December). It’s been grueling work and I thank the Lord my nails have stayed strong with all the cleaning, sorting, packing, etc. When life gets back to somewhat normal, I’ll be blinging it out again. 😉
