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.”

Let’s just get right to it. I chose three completely different finishes. Remember, these and all the new 2015 Fall Collection from ILNP will be available for preorder on Sept. 4th at 11 a.m., Pacific.

First up, delicate Dream Girl.

Dream Girl goes on dreamy, and shines like heck! Powerfully feminine.

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.

ILNP Harbour Island, as refreshing as a dip in the Caribbean

Well, I have only five polishes left to show you in my ILNP Summer 2015 series. And remember, they are all available NOW at ILNP.com! Today I’ll show you Harbour Island. It’s stunning! It is described as: “Harbour Island is a lovely Caribbean blue nail polish accented with an array of holographic magic! Harbour Island is a versatile sheer / jelly nail polish that can be worn over other polishes or built to opacity for a lovely finish with intriguing depth! Fully opaque in 3 to 4 coats!” $10 ea.

I am down to the wire with my ILNP Summer 2015 swatches. Kind of sad really as I've so enjoyed every one of these beautiful polishes. This is gorgeous Harbour Island! 3 coats, glossy as heck and such a perfect Caribbean aqua blue!

Some years back my husband and I took a vacation on the island of Eleuthera. The most amazing shades of blue and aqua shores with gentle lapping water on one side of the tiny island and the deep blue of the Atlantic on the other. Factoid about Harbour Island: Harbour Island is an island and administrative district in the Bahamas and is located off the northeast coast of Eleuthera Island. This gorgeous place is known for it’s sugary soft pink sand and low key island life, on the arid side and very little tourist population. You could literally go days without seeing a soul on your usually private beach if you rented a beach home like we did. Talk about relaxation! I’d say the shade and glisteny formula of this amazing holo polish would be perfect to wear to Harbour Island!

Order yours here! Harbour Island

Mega (X) joins the Mega family from ILNP

I you have any or all of the rest of the Mega polishes from indie maker, ILNP, you’ll truly appreciate the new Mega (X), a holographic powerhouse!

ILNP began the line with Mega, a full-blown, no-filler SpectraFlair polish. She’s a rainbow in a bottle. Then there’s Mega (L), an even more linear polish due to it’s even more microfine holographic particles. She’s got that smooth rainbow effects you’ll love. Before (X) came the most recent in the Mega line, Mega (S). This SCATTERED version is intense and also a winner. All Megas sell for $10ea.

Now, Mega (X) is the big kahuna, the showstopper, the…well, let’s take a look!

Mega (X) is described as: "The MEGA family has added a new member to its holographic clan and this one really brings the muscle! MEGA (X) is composed of an array of oversized holographic pigments for maximum holographic sparkle to the 10th power! MEGA (X) has a seriously over-the-top scattered holographic sparkle that's even visible indoors and is practically blinding in the sun!" I used 3 coats, but two is opaque! I also added a coat of clear topcoat even though Mega (X) is already smooth to the touch on it's own.

I also added a coat of clear topcoat even though Mega (X) is already smooth to the touch on its own.

Of course, polishes like this really shine in the sun, but the SpectraFlair is so full and evident, you will know that your digits will be eye-catching in regular lighting.

So pick up a Mega (X), or all of them! With this much holo, they are a steal at $10ea!

Baroness X Nail Lacquer new collection, NeoElectro trio is coming soon!

First, let me get a tiny bit of business out-of-the-way. As you know (if you follow me on Instagram, and you should 😉 We have been planning a big move to Texas from Missouri. Now that has happened as of Monday, I’m slowly getting back to a bit of my regular posting routine. Sorry if it seems my blog presence has been a bit spotty in the past month. After living in the same home for 17 years, moving, fixing, sorting, purging and packing was more daunting than I imagined! But we’ve accomplished this phase (moving into our daughter and her hubby’s home while we househunt) and we are super pleased to be here! I’m getting caught up with my posts, which the next few are swatches I had already done before our trip and now time to post! I also trimmed the length of my nails down to keep them from breaking too badly during the move. Thank you for your patience.

Now for the important schtuff! lol This is my first experience with indie brand, Baroness X Nail Lacquer and I couldn’t be more pleased with this cute collection, NeoElectro. Owner, Demi Lee, also has a lot of other gorgeous polishes on her site as well. These formulas are all top notch, and really unique. They are set to release on July 29th, just around the corner. Let’s take a look!

These are healthy minis in 8 ml size, which cost $18. The full size set (15 ml) size set is $27 and you can purchase full size individually for $10 ea.

First up is FluroFizz and I’ll share with you images both in direct sunlight and a well-lit room.

FluoroFizz is a gorgeous neon pink jelly filled with Spectraflair in the base and the glitters are a mix of matte and holo black glitter (the large circles are holo and some of the smaller glitters are as well. It loves the sun!

FlouroFizz in well-lit room, not direct sunlight as in the other photo, but still has tons of pop! This is a fabulous formula, only 2-3 coats, this is 2.

Next up is the brilliant Electric Sparks. This one really has kaboom!

Electric Sparks in the sun is gorgeous! I say gorgeous with a singing voice! lol On the ring finger you'll notice I painted one coat over white for an in-your-face highlighter effect. Or you can wear it slightly toned down with 3-4 coats over the bare nail. Easy to apply, easy to remove.

Electric Sparks in indoor natural light. You can still see the glitzy sterling silver flakies even without direct sunlight. Stunning!

And a macro shot of Electric Sparks because it’s just mesmerizing!

Macro of Electric Sparks. So simple but complex to describe. The highlighter yellow/green jelly base contains various small sizes of silver flakies. This gives them the appearance of having a golden hue, especially in the sun. It stunning! This is the nail with one coat over a white base.

And the third in this little collection is Neon Bubbles. How cute is this one?!

Neon Bubbles, even the name is fun! Here she is in full sunlight. I didn't try her alone, but this is one coat, smooth as silk. over a deep fuscia gloss. NB is filled with neon micro glitters of pink, aqua, yellow, green, and black. I think I got them all, oh and holo glitter.

Two more new Ultra Holos from ILNP!

Today I’m sharing with you the last two of the 10 brand spankin’ new Ultra Holo polishes from ILNP. Did I have a favorite? I’ll never tell. Actually, I loved them all! They are all available to order now along with 11 new summer polishes (which I’ll be sharing in the coming weeks)! Be patient with me, I’m in the middle of packing to move as well as sprucing up the house we are selling. I’m telling you, This will be our last move, ever! It’s hard work. Well, I got off track. Here are the swatches, Walking Home and Missed Calls.

I love this deep purple sparkler, Walking Home!

Walking home is described as, "Walking Home is a deliciously juicy grape holographic nail polish that is sure to drop jaws! Step outside with this beautiful Ultra Holo on your fingertips and you'll gush at the blindingly incredible sparkle radiating from your nails.  Walking Home is part of ILNP's new "Ultra Holo" class of super intense holographic nail polishes; specifically formulated for maximum, in-your-face holographic sparkle! Fully opaque in 2 to 3 coats!" It only took 2 coats for me!

The only time missed calls is pretty, in when it’s a polish! Here is Missed Calls!

Deep and mysterious and full of sparkle! Missed Calls is described as, "Missed Calls is definitely here to make a statement! Inside of this black nail polish is so much holographic sparkle that it practically explodes off the nail. Don't miss this one! Missed Calls is part of ILNP's new "Ultra Holo" class of super intense holographic nail polishes; specifically formulated for maximum, in-your-face holographic sparkle! Fully opaque in 2 to 3 coats!" Again, this only took 2 coats for me!

I have a feeling with "Missed Calls" on your nails you may get LOTS of calls! ;-)

All 10 of the new Ultra Holos are available to order now at ILNP.com and sell for $10 ea. I highly recommend each and every one.

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.”
