And it’s a wrap! My last 5 ILNP swatches for the Fall 2016 Collection

Here are the last five of the ILNP Fall 2016 and Fall Neutrals! What a glorious lineup this has been. I always love ILNP Fall shades. I will get right to it since the Pre-Order starts tomorrow on the 16th of Sept., and there is no time to waste! Special discount when you pre-order.

Chocolate Slate from the Fall 2016 collection by ILNP is described as, "Chocolate Slate is a deliciously rich dark chocolate-brown shade with subtle hints of auburn. Delicately accented with a precise trifecta of gold, yellow gold, and copper flakes, Chocolate Slate is a premium truffle with undeniable character. To top it all off, Chocolate Slate has been dusted with a premium holographic twinkle for a heavenly finish that is sure to delight your palate!" I used 2 coats. I don't know if it was the way the sun was peeking in and out of the clouds when I snapped this picture but my images kept coming out looking more berry like. There is a slightly more chocolately tint to this IRL~

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.

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.

Conclusion: So far and no surprise, each of these apply like butter, shine like heck and are the epitome of Autumn. I can’t wait to show you more so stay tuned!

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.”

The overall finish of Pucker Up is so very crisp and ultra-saturated that you’ll want to eat it up! The semi-translucent, jelly-leaning formula of our shimmer polishes allows for maximum balance, depth, and effect payoff. Great on their own or paired with your favorite base colors, the versatility of our shimmers is sure to keep you busy discovering new and beautiful finishes! Fully opaque in 2-3 coats.”

The Boulevard, here in 3 coats, is one of those 4-season shades. ILNP describes it as, "Time to walk that walk! The Boulevard is a blue-leaning slate grey polish accented with the perfect combination of yellow gold and copper shimmers that come out to play in all types of lighting conditions! If you're after a dark and sleek finish, go for a stroll on The Boulevard. We promise it will not let you down! The semi-translucent, jelly-leaning formula of our shimmer polishes allows for maximum balance, depth, and effect payoff. Great on their own or paired with your favorite base colors, the versatility of our shimmers is sure to keep you busy discovering new and beautiful finishes! Fully opaque in 2 to 3 coats."

Ruby Sky is fully opaque in 3-4 coats, I chose to do it in 2 coats and I love how squishy it is! ILNP describes it as, "Ruby Sky is a seriously rich blue polish with delicious purple undertones. This stunner makes excellent use of high quality red and pink shimmers that effortlessly stand out in all types of lighting! Ruby Sky was specifically formulated to provide a wonderful base to shimmer contrast and noticeably buildable depth with each successive coat!

CONCLUSION: Although these are fairly sheer and jelly-like for the most part, I found each one of these formulas super easy to apply and extremely glossy. Yet they didn’t take a long time to dry like some of the more jelly-like polishes on the market.

One of my fave indie nail brands, ILNP has two 2016 polish collection you’ll crave. A couple of weeks ago I posted my review on the ILNP Spring Jellies and today I’ll present the Spring Collection.

ILNP Spring Jelly Collection is blooming brilliant!

Happy Spring to all you lovers of this seasons colors. I have two beautiful Spring ILNP collections to share with you which I will present one today and the other later in the week. Today’s collection is the ILNP Jelly Collection. Six super smooth, glossy and sparkly jellies to sink your teeth into. First, let me share with you a taste of springtime in Texas! The Bluebonnets are in bloom and a host of other glorious colors with Indian Paintbrush, wild Buttercups and the delicate, yet thorny Mesquite.

I shot this at my daughter's farm. Central Texas countryside in the spring is a sight to behold!

And onto the ILNP Spring Jelly collection! They are all sheer to start and can be worn many ways, 2-4 coats for semi-sheer to fully opaque, sandwich them or whatever! All are smooth and glossy. They are $10ea or $60 for the ILNP Spring Jelly 2016 set.

The glorious ILNP Spring Jelly lineup. From top to bottom, left to right: Sweet Pea, Jello Shot, Sandy Baby, Valerie, Night Light and BFFs.

Let’s begin with Bffs. A grape jelly with tons of sparkle and personality.

I applied 3 easy coats of BFFs. BFF's is described as "a tastily translucent concord grape jelly loaded with holographic goodness. The deep grape hue of BFF’s provides an amazing backdrop for our extremely vibrant holographic micro-flakes to go wild in the sun! Easily built up or sandwiched, the sheer formula of our jellies make way for our scattered holographic micro-flakes to work their magic all the way through each layer right down to your nails! The end result is a super crisp and sparkly finish with unmistakable depth. Fully opaque in 3 to 4 coats!"

Jello Shot will make your mouth water!

Jello Shot in 3 coats. So glossy, it's juicy! Jello Shot is described as "a deliciously juicy paradise pink jelly that packs a jaw-dropping holographic punch thanks to a generous assortment of oversized holographic goodness!  You’ll find the glass-like translucency of Jello Shot lends itself to an incredible finish. Get ready to go nuts over the amazing depth and color saturation you can build with each coat!

Night Light! Who doesn’t need a bit of light and sparkle when the sun goes down?!

This is 3 coats. Remember, jellies dry super glossy and are sheer on the first coat. Really, this is nearly opaque enough to get away with 2 coats, depending on your free edge. Night Light is described as "a beautifully crisp deep blue-violet jelly loaded with holographic micro-flakes.

Sandy Baby will compliment every skin tone and it’s oh so delicate.

Sandy Baby in 3 coats, a real blushing beauty. Sandy Baby is described as "a subtle and sophisticated peach beige jelly that is extremely versatile, super holographic and builds beautifully! A serious sheer knockout that can be worn over a base, by itself, sandwiched, or built up heavily for a jaw dropping manicure with incredible depth and a mind blowingly vivid holographic sparkle!

Here are a few fabulous facts for your shopping pleasure.

Valerie is a stunning shade that reminds me of pomegranate juice!

Valerie in 3 coats, 2 was nearly opaque for me. Valerie is described as "a stunning and incomparable mulberry leaning jelly that is a real show-stopper in any lighting.  Build up to a few layers and prepare to be amazed at the deliciousness on your fingertips! Easily built up or sandwiched, the sheer formula of our jellies make way for our scattered holographic micro-flakes to work their magic all the way through each layer right down to your nails!

Sweet Pea, as fresh as the blooming flower it’s named after.

Sweet Pea in 3 coats! Super smooth. Sweet Pea is described as "a graceful and sweet seashell pink jelly that is incredibly versatile! This sheer stunner wears beautifully alone for a subtle pop of color with a glass-like shine and intense holographic sparkle or take it a step further and sandwich it with another favorite! Easily built up or sandwiched, the sheer formula of our jellies make way for our scattered holographic micro-flakes to work their magic all the way through each layer right down to your nails!

Conclusion: All six of these jellies were smooth as silk to apply. I recommend applying thin layers to maximize the dry time. I waited about 3 minutes after each coat. I have virtually no cleanup to do as these polishes apply without pooling and clean nicely to the brush. Every shade was super glossy, and the added sparkle set these jellies apart. I highly recommend this collection. I’d have loved to see a grass-green but maybe one is coming down the road. Love love love these!

Stay tuned as I have the other ILNP Spring Collection (7 in the set) coming this week. I can’t wait to show you!

ILNP 2015 Winter Collection sparkles!

I’m thrilled beyond reason! Why? Because Barbra from ILNP creates amazing collections and here we go with yet another set to add to your lacquer shelves. The ILNP 2015 Winter Collection ranges from a delicate pale golden sparkler to an in-your-face crimson showstopper. They are all available now! Here we go 🙂

I’ll start with Cozy Mittens. I was taking a photo in my well-lit office, then the sun came beaming through the window and showed me a whole new shine to this mani. So I have two photos of this one for you. Cozy Mittens will warm up your coldest winter day.

2 coats of Cozy Mittens. In this shot, well-lit room. It is described as: "a perfectly soft and luxurious linear holographic nail polish accented with an array of gold flakes for a truly elegant finish. The super fine holographic particles used in Cozy Mittens give the finish of this nail polish an incredibly warm and silky feel to it. The primary color of Cozy Mittens is a light grey however, in certain types of lighting the added gold flakes really assert themselves and push the overall hue of the polish towards a soft champagne. A classy shade perfect for the season! Fully opaque in 2 to 3 coats!"

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.”

• Conclusion: No surprise here. I LOVE this whole collection. You may notice that most of my images are taken in different lighting and angles. I usually try to keep them consistent within a collection, but because of the different ways these each catch the light, I found it behooved me to think outside the box and just go with my instincts.

You can get the whole Holiday Collection for 2015 for $70 or individually for $10 ea and Ferris Wheel Ultra Chrome Flakie for $12.50.
