Ahh, mon cherie! Here is Mon Amour from ILNP Fall 2016 collection. Isn't she dark and juicy? She is described as, "a luxuriously deep holographic beauty that will easily find a place in your heart! This intensely dark purple shade is borderline black in certain lighting conditions with a wonderfully saturated finish to it. Look closely and you'll find the combination of beautiful wine red shimmers in Mon Amour create the perfect foundation for this stunner! Last but not least, Mon Amour has been carefully accented with a variety of holographic micro-flakes and pigments to wrap it all up with the perfect finishing touch!" Nearly a 1 coater for me but 2 coats gives this beauty so much depth.

Oh my goodness, Highline is a gorgeous mulichrome shade shifting stunner. No matter what direction the light comes in it never looks the same. From a strong golden brass, to pine green, burgundy to bronze, this one is breathtaking. 2 coats.

Clever Girl from the Fall 2016 ILNP collection is a delicate teal base highlighted with pinkish holographic sparkles. 2 to 3 coats, but I liked it more sheer using 2.

Alexander from the new Fall 2016 collection is described as, "a uniquely intricate holographic shade that sits on the line between olive-green, light brown, and even grey in certain types of lighting. Formulated for maximum depth, Alexander is packed with just the right amount of varying holographic pigments for a tremendously busy sparkle in direct light." Here he is in two coats.

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

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.

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.

A simple Mardi Gras inspired mani with 3 ILNP Ultra Chrome Flakies!

Actually, although I am a day late for the actual Mardi Gras day, folks in New Orleans and most likely beyond are still celebrating. So I thought I’d share with you my super simple Mardi Gras nails using ILNP’s Ultra Chrome Flakies. Of course the three mainstay colors of MG are purple, gold and green. Granted, Mardi Gras is all about celebrating, excess, thinking outside the box and blingy overkill in fashion. But after all that preparation, a simple nail art that still delivers the shine and looks amazing is just the ticket!

Well, I may be a day late and a dollar short, since the true Mardi Gras was technically yesterday. But folks are still celebrating, you can bet on it! I used three MG shaded flakies from the Ultra Chrome Flakies from ILNP. The green one is Open Fields, the gold is Rapture and the purple is Metropolis. All are available in the ILNP.COM store! The accent nail used all three over black. 2 coats on the others over a bare nail, followed by a clear topcoat.

Neon Rosebud Ultra Chrome Flaky polish by ILNP is BRILLIANT!

How does one find a favorite out of 13 perfect Ultra Chrome Flakies from ILNP? Not really possible but Neon Rosebud is pretty much up there on my list. Maybe that’s why I have been saving it almost the last. I nearly swatched her over black, but I have been looking for a nail art idea to use the shade I finally chose for undies. Almost Midnight by L’Oreal won out over black for this look. It’s a deep deep eggplant creme. A perfect fit for a flaky as brilliant as Neon Rosebud!

Neon Rosebud is perfect over any shade, but I chose the very deep eggplant creme by L'Oreal, "Almost Midnight".

Neon Rosebud is described as, "Neon Rosebud is just...wow. The primary color range of this beautiful nail polish travels through super vivid fuchsia, green, and gold with hints of other colors in different lighting! A true stunner that lives up to its name!"

For this look I simply used a single diagonal piece of pink foil striping tape over the base color. Then filled in half the nail with Neon Rosebud, then topped with a single layer of topcoat.

I'm love this shifting from brilliant pink to gold to green, even orange!

My last swatch of these fab flakies will be Metropolis. I’m still pondering what look I should go for. Which UCFs have you picked up from ILNP and how are you wearing them? I would love to hear from you!

Open Fields by ILNP, it’s a stunning mean green flaky

I’m kinda sad. Sad that I only have three fabulous flakies from I Love Nail Polish left to swatch for you! But take heart, you’ll surely be swatching your own after you have seen all the amazing swatches from my fellow bloggers. All the Ultra Chrome Flakies from ILNP are available now and every single one of the 13 are beyond my expectation. Easy on, easy off, eye-catching flakies expertly crafted and elegantly bottled, these polishes are a must-have in your collection. So here we have Open Fields. A brilliant green too gorgeous for words!

It's like these two were meant for each other! What a pretty pair.

Open Fields is described as: "Open Fields is a wonderfully fresh nail polish that primarily shifts through a vibrant grass green, golden yellow, and cool blue. You might even catch other colors depending on the lighting!"

Open Fields is perfect over purples (well, any base) but I chose to use Kings & Queens from ILNP because I'm a sucker for holos. Plus Open Fields with purple reminds me of Mardi Gras colors: green, gold and purple!

I have two left for you to see. Neon Rosebud and Metropolis. I can’t wait to show them to you! How about you? Have you placed your order yet? I know there are a lot of flakies from indie polish makers out there and I’ve tried a few, so far all fabulous. If you wondered about these from ILNP, I guarantee you will love them. They glide on like butter and sparkle like crazy. Please comment below, I’d love to hear from you.

Today, 4 of my final 7 ILNP Ultra Chrome Flakies!

As some of you may already know, my life has been a whirlwind in the last month or two as we attended to the needs of my husband’s ailing mom. She was suffering with severe end stage COPD and has been here at our home in a hospice setting. She passed away on Dec. 6, and the last few weeks of her life were pretty uncomfortable. We have had her funeral services and currently still have company, much welcomed visit from our daughter and her husband. I truly appreciate the outpouring of love, support, patience and prayers of my online friends. Thank you so much! Even though we are in the thick of the holidays, I am pretty much keeping up with my swatching and blogging commitments, a little more sparse than usual. But I’m getting back on track. So on with this week’s ILNP showcase!

Today I’m sharing with you 4 of final 7 Ultra Chrome Flakies with Atlantis, Brilliance, Cold Fusion and Rapture. Be on the lookout on my blog and Instagram within the next week for the final 3, Metropolis, Neon Rosebud and Open Fields! All 13 UCFs are perfect!

First up, Atlantis. Here comes the eye candy! Be sure to click/tap on each image for an even closer view.

Atlantis is described by ILNP as, "Atlantis is breathtaking. This beautiful Ultra Chrome Flakie magically travels through hues of blue, orange, purple, and red. The colors are so vibrant they almost appear as if they're glowing. A personal favorite!" So cool!

Brilliance…what can I say, it’s brilliant!

Brilliance is described by ILNP as, "Brilliance is a wonderfully vintage feeling Ultra Chrome Flakie nail polish. It might look a bit similar to a couple of the others but we assure you it's not! The primary color range of Brilliance travels through a pale gold, a pinkish bronze, and a light green. You'll also be able to notice a bunch of other colors like blues, oranges, and reds depending on your lighting!" Lovely!

All the flakies I'm sharing today are only one coat over undies respectively, but really nearly two coats will almost bring them to opacity. Brilliance over Bella by Seche.

Well, the stupid sunshine kept teasing me going in and out. I wanted you to see how fab Brilliance is over the vampy cranberry shimmer of Bella by Seche. But you get the idea, it's stunning!

Cold Fusion, perfect for winter!

Cold Fusion is described by ILNP as, "Cold Fusion is a super cool Ultra Chrome Flakie that's a must have! Shifting through hues of blue, teal, and even purple, Cold Fusion doesn't disappoint!" Wear this and chill!

I knew the moment I saw Cold Fusion what shade I wanted for it's undies! Kerfuffle by wHet was a perfect choice because of it's creamy periwinkle pastel hue.

And the last for today, Rapture. Holy cow it’s gorgeous over Cygnus Loop by ILNP! First, I’ll share CL with you so you can take in its beauty.

Cygnus Loop is described by ILNP as, "Who would’ve thought you could wear the remnants of a supernova on your fingertips? Cygnus Loop is a stunner of a polish that may just blow your mind right into another galaxy. Depending on the light and angle of your lovely fingertips, Cygnus Loop will shuffle through a bright purple, to orange, to yellow, and even a little bit of green. Woah! Cygnus Loop is part of ILNP’s “Ultra Chrome” class of chromatic nail polishes; formulated to apply directly to the nail without the need for a base color. Fully opaque after 2 coats!" It truly IS!

So, this was my base color for Rapture and a perfect undie for any of the 13 Ultra Chrome Flakies!

Please read this information (which may change depending on supplies being delivered to ILNP). This is a quote from ILNP Facebook page. Please, please be patient with ILNP when ordering. Barbra has no control over the timing and whims of customs. This is an AMAZING company to deal with and they are doing everything in their power to get these fabulous products to your mailbox.

As of December 6th Facbook quote: “We’re dealing with another supply delay (our product boxes have been held by customs for close to 3 weeks now) so the official release of the Ultra Chrome Flakies will likely be postponed until late December unless we get some really good news next week. I’m not going to risk potentially delaying anyone’s Christmas gifts. This delay also affects ‘in-stock’ products. Anyone making a purchase will be notified before being allowed to complete their checkout of the delays and given the option to cancel or complete their order. This has been a complete nightmare for us at the worst possible time of the year. On the bright side, we will be adding physical gift cards to the ILNP shop in the coming days that can ship immediately. Just in time for Christmas! Thank you all so much for your patience and understanding. We’ve been working 16 hour days since Monday (when we received our bottles) to get everything poured, packed, and shipped!”

Please take a moment to comment and let me know if you’ll be picking up some or all of these gorgeous special effect polishes. Again, please know these are NOT DIFFICULT to remove. It’s just like removing regular polish whether you layer it over an undercoat of color, or on the bare nail. I LOVE that!
