Tahitian Sun polishes adds sparkle to your fingers and toes!

Two sparkling summertime metallics from Tahitian Sun. Metallic Silver and Metallic Gold. Those bottles!!!!

Okay, I’m a sucker for flashy polish bottles and Tahitian Sun custom polishes really hit home with my beach lovin’ heart with their sandy bottle tops with real starfish embellishments. Wow!

Tahitian Sun went full on with creativity and the beachy tropical theme reflects as well with the bottles and caps. I love the sandy lids with a real mini starfish on top!

And now for the fun part. Here are two of their sparkling metallics. Metallic Silver and Gold. And a luscious berry shade, Raspberry.

Tahitian Sun Metallic Silver is a silver glitter metallic Nail Polish in a super opaque metallic finish, 0.5 fl oz / 15ml bottle with flat brush and 2 inch sand-like cap topped with a mini starfish. 1-2 coats of this sparkler!

Tahitian Sun Metallic Gold is a sparkly gold Nail Polish in a glitter metallic finish, 0.5 fl oz / 15ml bottle with flat brush and 2 inch sand-like cap topped with a mini starfish. I used 3 smooth coats here.

Gorgeous Tahitian Sun Raspberry! 2-3 coats, here is two. I also added a gel-like top coat. There is a slightly textured glossy finish due to the ton of holo within. A good heavy duty topcoat will smooth that right out.

Tahitian Sun Raspberry is a heavy holo raspberry red in a jelly-like raspberry base.

I can’t wait to try more. Besides their willingness and ability to create custom colors and formulas, there are a ton of options from the menu. Here are the details on how to get yours! They take Amazon, AMEX, Discover, MC, VISA and Paypal.

Ingredients info:

Toxic Free Ingredients (5-FREE)
All of our products contain “No Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalat, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, or Camphor”. We take pride in being a toxic 5-Free alternative.
Toluene. The least harmful of the toxic trio, toluene is a volatile organic compound (VOC) that is found in paints, thinners, and inks. Despite giving nail polish its ability to dry quickly, toluene is still a harmful chemical. The ingredient is also classified by the California Department Of Public Health Occupational Health Branch California Safe Cosmetics Program as cancer-causing.
Dibutyl phthalate (DBP). DBP is a carcinogen found in paints, plastics, and pesticides that stops nail polish from being brittle. It is classified by the European Union as a suspected endocrine disrupter and Health Canada has linked it to liver and kidney failure in children.
Formaldehyde. Similar to DBP, formaldehyde is also classified as a known human carcinogen by The International Agency for Research on Cancer. It allows nail polish to harden and chip less, but can lead to fatigue, skin irritation, and immune dysfunction in users.
Formaldehyde resin. While similar to formaldehyde, no link between cancer and formaldehyde resin has been found. The resin helps strengthen nails, but is a skin allergen and immune system toxicant that can cause dermatitis.
Camphor. Camphor is created by distilling the bark of a camphor tree. Although natural, inhaling or having large exposure to camphor can be toxic, create irritation, and cause seizures in children.

Back row top L/R: Ferris Wheel (another beautiful Ultra Chrome Flaky) and Limelight. Far left is Lucky One. Center front is Time In A Bottle and Far right is XO.

I’ll get right to the swatches. FYI also this week I’ll be showing you another new collection from ILNP.com, the 2015 Winter Collection, and just like today’s group, they will drop you in your tracks!

First up is Empire. Everyone needs a gold like this in their lives!

ILNP Empire paired with Lucky One from the same collection! This brilliant gold is described as: "a jaw-dropping super ultra-shiny true gold Ultra Metallicsā„¢ nail polish that is simply awe-inspiring. Generously accented with holographic micro flakes for a vivid rainbow twinkle, Empire is the total package. Step into the sunlight wearing Empire and prepare to be stunned at the richness, the incredible sparkle, and the mind-blowing mirror-like reflectivity radiating from your fingertips!

Next is the gorgeous green I used to pair with this gorgeous gilded lacquer, Lucky One.

ILNP Lucky One is a classic green metallic. Paired here with this collection's Empire. Lucky One is described as: "a vividly fun pine green Ultra Metallicsā„¢ nail polish with a glorious holographic sparkle. The perfect Christmas green for those festive manicures!

Here is the new XO, perfectly paired with another ILNP stunner, Masquerade.

ILNP XO, alone on my ring finger and paired with ILNP Masquerade. XO is described as: "a rich and saturated palatinate purple Ultra Metallicsā„¢ nail polish. Stuffed with holographic sparkle and high quality ultra-thin metallic flakes for superior shine, XO is a wonderfully unique purple that youā€™ll reach for year round!

This one really took my breath away. Although Limelight in the Holiday collection, I think it will make a gorgeous summertime polish!

Oh my, I fell instantly in love with this brilliant lime green metallic! Limelight is described as: "a super fun and wonderfully festive bright green Ultra Metallicsā„¢ nail polish with just the right amount of holographic pigment to add a beautiful rainbow sparkle in the sun!

The one Ultra Chrome Flakie that snuck into this glittery crowd is Ferris Wheel. Don’t you love?!

Ultra Flakie Ferris Wheel by ILNP over a glossy black. Ferris Wheel is described as: "an amazing combination of color-shifting Ultra Chrome Flakies that is unmistakably festive and perfect for the season! At every angle you turn your nails youā€™ll enjoy vivid hues of green, gold, blue, red, purple, and pink. Use Ferris Wheel as a topper over your favorite nail polish or brush on a few layers for full coverage. ILNP Ultra Chrome Flakies are fully opaque and can be worn alone or over any color without affecting the intense color shifting properties. Full coverage in 3 - 4 coats."

Winding down with today’s collection is Time In A Bottle. One of those essential mermaidy metallics none of us can do without.

Time In A Bottle, two coats. Accented with Morgan Taylor's Party At The Palace! Time In A Bottle is described as: "a gorgeously rich aquamarine-leaning Ultra Metallicsā„¢ nail polish. A little darker than turquoise but not quite teal, Time In A Bottle is one of those unique colors thatā€™s difficult to describe but nonetheless stunning! The vivid blue shade of Time In A Bottle plays beautifully with the super reflective metallic flakes and micro holographic flakes. Seriously, do not pass this one up!

And finally, Cherry Luxe. A delicious cherry red metallic. I know, Christmas is over but hey, Valentine’s Day is fast approaching!

Two coats of Cherry Luxe! Love this gorgeous cherry red metallic. It is described as: "a beautifully stunning, fun, and festively rich red nail polish that's absolutely perfect for the holidays! Cherry Luxe is part of a set of 6 new holiday themed Ultra Metallicsā„¢ polishes that take advantage of our Ultra Metallicsā„¢ formula for an incredibly ornamental-like finish!

ā€¢ 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.

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 arenā€™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.ā€

Madam Glam, you never cease to amaze me!

It’s been a little while since I have had a chance to post anything from Madam Glam Cosmetics. Between packing moving, buying a house, packing again, moving again, holidays and company, I’m finally getting back into the groove with my favorite indie girls! I have a few amazing products to share with you this evening. Now I’ve tried many many polishes from MG, but this time, I also got the chance to try out an amazing polish remover and a Quick Dry top coat.

Madam Glam Express Nail Polish Remover (Dip & Twist) is just as incredible as the label says! And the Quick Dry topcoat is great because not only does it dry super glossy and fast, it's not annoyingly thick like some commercial brands...ahem SV cough cough. LOL

I have tried those department store sponge dip removers before. They are ok but they are just acetone and a sponge. It took me just as long with those to remove polish as if they were from a bottle. But Madam Glad Express Nail Polish Remover is a wonder to behold. In fact, I’d like to see this is a giant sponge bottle! This stuff is FAST! 3 seconds average to remove, 9-10 seconds for ornery glitter. I did a short video which I’ll share on my Instagram feed, because I don’t have permissions here on WordPress to share it. Dip, twist and your nail comes out totally clean. The only thing I would change is the sponge did come apart a tiny bit. Not sure what happened but a few tiny fragments of the black sponge within came out on my finger. Maybe it was just a few pieces from when the sponge was installed. So if that is normal, no worries. But if we could have sponge that doesn’t shed, that would make this a perfect product. That being said, the magic is in the remover! I also used by cleanup brush dipped into it when cleaning up my manicure and it whisked away every trace for super quick cleanup. Here’s what Madam Glam says about it:

“Express Nail Polish Remover”
Nail polish remover that will leave your nails nice and clean, as if the lacquer was never there. Say goodbye to the classic way of removing nail polish. This is one of the life-hacks you need for your nail care routine. No need for cotton pads! Everything you need is all in one item. You can easily take it on your travels, as it is perfectly packaged, for when you are away.
How does it work? Inside the bottle you will find foam soaked in nail polish remover. Insert one finger at a time and twist it until there is no more nail polish left on the nail.
 
Why? 
– It smells awesome!
 – The foam has a comfortable texture.
 – The white peach extract will leave your cuticles nurtured and moisturized, thanks to its vitamins and minerals. It’s time to make your nail polish removing experience so much easier and healthier for your finger tips!!”

I give this product 2 clean thumbs up! Now, about the Quick Dry Topcoat. Love it! I’m always on the lookout for a great glossy topcoat that dries fast, doesn’t get thick or sticky and speeds up my whole mani operation. As much as I swatch, it’s pretty important that I have a good reliable topcoat. Here is what Madam Glam has to say about it:

Quick Dry
If you’re tired of waiting for your mani to dry, this is the solution!
– Apply after polish and top coat
– Look up the latest polish of Madam Glam
– And surprise it’s already dry!

On to the four gorgeous shades I have to show you. I’ll just post the photos here and let them speak for themselves!

Pastel Sky is described as, "Azure Blue". This pale blue creme is super pigmented, dries fast and smooth in 1-2 coats. Caribbean Island (be still my heart, SO in love with this one!)...It's described as a bright mint. This mega opaque creme is fully opaque in 1-2 coats. It really reminds me of the shallow shoreline of a Caribbean island!

Original Sin is described as "A flirty bright red". This creme is buttery smooth, sort of like a crelly, dries super glossy in 1-2 coats. I would describe Golden Beauty as a while gold micro glitter is super dense and slightly textured, very slight. One coat of topcoat, I used the amazing Madam Glad Quick Dry, will create a glossy smooth finish if desired.

Baroness X group custom Doomfire is hot!

Unless you are totally new to Facebook or have been living under a rock, you may realize by now that belonging to a fan group for cosmetics comes with perks. I’ll get right to the point. I have been a fan and ultimately swatcher/reviewer for Baroness X for some time now. As soon as owner of indie cosmetic company, Baroness X, started a closed fan group on Facebook, The X Army, I immediately jumped in with both feet! Perks include firsthand info on upcoming polishes, cosmetics, collections and sales, and ultimately group custom items only members can order. Take a peek at this awesome group custom package I bought from Baroness X!

This is how my amazing Doomfire package arrived. The best part obviously is the Doomfire polish group custom, limited. An adorable adjustable unicorn ring, two emery boards, purple iridescent earrings and 2 unicorn horn scented guest soaps. How cute are these!?!

This limited polish available only to Baroness X fan group members on Facebook makes it extra special! Creator Demetria knocks this one out of the park!

SO good to be a part of The X Army Facebook group for Baroness X fans! This group custom, Doomfire is breathtaking! Sigh-worthy! It's a purpley blue jelly base with a plethora of firey pink or copper shimmers.

And now for a little closeup just to make you a tiny bit jealous. Just a bit. šŸ™‚

Drooling much? Wow!

Just a little temptation to show you how amazing this polish is. And one more reason to show you it pays to become a cosmetic group member on Facebook. You can't get these any other way!

Just a thought: Please respect these amazing indie companies. I want to state that it is bad form to join a group just to order a group custom, then bail the group. I put it up there with “liking” or joining a blog fan group or Instagram follower to enter a contest for prizes then when you don’t win, unfollow. Just FYI!

Mosi Mei…some gift worthy holiday shades!

Thank you to all my loyal product suppliers and readers for being so patient with me while I went through a move to our new home, packing, unpacking, moving in…all within a week of Thanksgiving. We had family coming in from out-of-state for the holiday. So yeah, stress was at an all time high! But we got through it, company left this morning and now I’m getting back to my swatching and reviewing schedule! So tonite I had three more lacquer shades from Mosi Mei. Just in time for your holiday manis. Let’s take a look!
