Today I’d like to share with you four more gorgeous new Ultra Holos from I Love Nail Polish! They are Paper Route, Paige, Float On and Ten Fold. I hope you didn’t miss the Preorder but you can still order them singly, or the whole set. I only have two left to share, coming soon. Let’s get started!
Here is a super summery shade, Ten Fold, perfect for those lazy hazy days on the water!
For those days you want some flash but you’re in a neutral mood, here is Paper Route.
Float On is a an amazing aquamarine with tons of ultra holographic sparkle.
And Paige, she’s a very berry pink loaded with sparkle!
Stay tuned, I’ll be bringing you the last two by this weekend. If you can’t wait, head over to ILNP and get yours ordered today! Bottom line, I love the Ultra Holos and I highly recommend them. Oh yeah, I have a bunch of new Summer polishes from ILNP coming soon too. Barbra and her crew have been busy little bees! 😉
Reminder: here are what the 10 new Ultra Holo bottles look like!
Now here are a few fabulous facts for your reading 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.”
I received all six shades of the 50 Shades of Grey LE Collection by OPI, from Loxa Beauty this week. From vampy cool toned red to the smoldering deep toned grey (w/just a hint of blue-tone), this ensemble will surely inspire you to paint your nails and go to town! I have to say, the some of the formulas were on the thin side of application, but each only needed two coats to opacity. I had a bit of trouble with pooling on the red, Romantically Involved, but it only happened on one nail. The fluidity of the formula took me by surprise. Each creme dried quickly, applied smooth and dried glossy. Here are a couple shot of the bottles.
I like how the grey shades were sort of stepped, and I plan on trying a gradient when I get the chance. Then the other three took on a different personality from snappy silver, sparkly silver with blue glitters and sexy red.
You can now get all six shades from the LE Collection of 50 Shades of Grey by OPI now from Loxa Beauty! The film adaptation of the 2011 romance novel by British author E.L. James is due to be released in theaters on February 13, 2015.
“Surrender to the passion. Surrender to the color.” Pick up your OPI 50 Shades of Grey polishes today at Loxa Beauty!
Conclusion: I liked this collection and felt like they all were very complimentary with each other. I loved layering the Shine on Me over My Silk Tie…total win there. I love reds and one would think with all the reds I own, I’d have a dupe. But nope! I looked and this is unlike my other reds. The thin formula is workable and makes this one worth it. I’m not a huge fan of grey/gray 😉 but they do gradient nicely together. My fave grey in this collection is the Dark Side of the Mood. What do you think? Got it, want it, on the fence? Loxa Beauty also has the set of minis as well!
OPI Nail Lacquer is rich, long-lasting, high shine, colored nail polish for natural nails. OPI Nail Lacquers contain everything you want, nothing you don’t. Contains no DBP, toluene or formaldehyde and they are not tested on animals Lacquers feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide Brush.
I can’t personally expound much on the “Grey” trilogy, other than the 2nd installment of the books is named Fifty Shades Darker and the 3rd is Fifty Shades Freed. Both were published in 2012. But from what I’ve read from reviews of the trilogy, the story line is steamier than a July picnic in Louisiana! I may not be able to handle that, but I had no trouble with these fab polishes.

‘Tis the season to celebrate and amp up your so-so manis in high style. Today we have a great gift trio from China Glaze and available now at Loxa Beauty, Reflect on the Season!
This holiday season China Glaze introduces a palette that allows you to reflect on the season and celebrate color, with glitters and shades to melt for. The spirit of the season is captured by sparkles in the night, soft glowing lights and visions of the new year. This cute kit includes: Tip Your Hat – 0.5 oz., Chillin’ With My Snow-mies – 0.5 oz., and Out Like A Light – 0.5 oz. with a FREE Mirror and Pouch.
Tip Your Hat and Out Like a Light are both great formulas. Chillin With My Snow-mies in its clear base, is basically a matte glitter topper I found easier to manage by dobbing a bit onto a piece of aluminum foil and picking up the pieces of glitter with a stick and placing where I wanted.

NOTE of Thanks: I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and I especially want to thank all my readers and followers for supporting me with love, thoughts and prayers as our family continues to endure the tough job of caring for my husband’s mom here in our home. The past month has been the hardest I’ve ever known, and the job of caring for an end-stage COPD hospice patient is more than I thought I could ever handle. But we’ve persevered with much prayer and the strength of the Lord. My blog and social community of friends has indeed helped me get through this. We don’t know how long we will have my mother-in-law with us and doing this through the holidays has it’s own special challenges. I’m so glad now that I have been able to work on some of my swatches, photos and posts ahead of time. And as I write our youngest son sits in my MIL’s room on the other side of our house, just being there so I can write and stay caught up. Blogging and finding moments to do my nails are so therapeutic. Funny how the little things are the highlight of your day in these situations. Moments of clarity from my MIL are far and few between but they are there hidden behind the oxygen deprivation and cloudy medicine interference. Yet, times when she has a memory, or showers us with hugs and kisses and blessings…are a blessing. Thanks everyone!
When I found out I’d be swatching the re-release of these six fabulous polishes from Zoya’s Matte Velvet collection I nearly fell out of my chair! I’ve seen some swatches before and in my opinion they are among the velvetiest mattes I’ve ever laid eyes on. I couldn’t wait to share them with you. So here they are! Oh, and you can order them now!
Here is Loredana:
Here is Savita:
Here is Posh:
Here is Veruschka:
Here is Harlow:
Here is Dovima:
And here is a little inspiration for you! Try blinding up your mattes! I have so many ideas now. What have you come up with? I’d love to see your comments and grab some ideas from you.
All in all I loved all if the fast drying formulas. They all were a breeze to apply as well. I can’t speak for wear as of yet. That will be in a later post. I highly recommend these beauties!
Please Note: MATTEVELVET nail color by Zoya is not intended to be worn with a base coat, top coat or speed dryer of any kind. Due to the unique matte formulation, color is not as long-wearing as traditional nail color. A completely clean, dry surface yields the best results for matte nail color wear.
ZOYA IS THE HEALTHY COLOR OF FASHION! **BIG5FREE: Formula contains no formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, dibutyl phthalate, toluene or camphor. These sell for $9 (US) each. Zoya MATTEVELVET* colors are available exclusively on Zoya.com and Ulta Stores.

Just a quick post to let y’all know for the first time in my lacquer lovin’ life, I’ve fallen in love with a gray! Yuna is her name. Two coats to perfection.
When I bought most of the other Zoya Ignite collection, I was still on the fence about Yuna. I didn’t have one gray in my collection and wasn’t sure how it would look with my complexion. But the warmth and golden flecks in this beauty changed my mind.
How about you? What warm and cozy Zoya shades are you sporting this fall!
