My Kinda Color Nail Lacquers, new swatches!

This is my first time trying My Kinda Color Nail Lacquer and it looks like owner/creator, Patty, has a lot of gorgeous colors…and counting! She also sells cosmetics such as eyeshadows and eyeliners, so check the links below!

Sorry for my absence the past month. We have been in Florida remodeling our beachfront condo property, prepping it for sale, and giving it a total refresh for this summer’s vacay crowd!

Today I am featuring five beautiful shades and without further ado, let’s take a look!

Here is a peachy golden metallic shimmer by My Kinda Color, “I’m The Boss”. A super pigmented nail lacquer, full of class!
Metallic Purple by My Kinda Color is a smooth royal purple that is loaded with pigmented but glides on smooth!
Sitten Pretty by My Kinda Color is a super bright neon shimmer and perfect for summer!
My Kinda Color has some gorgeous glitters, nearly 1 coaters! This one is ‘Heavenly”, perfect name! It’s on the thick side since there is so much glitter, but a delicate hand you can achieve full coverage in one coat. It has some texture so a gel type top coat like Gelous, is my recommendation.
Celebration is the same formula and finish as Heavenly, the blue glitter. Loaded with feminine glitter and holo, one coat should do with a good gel like top coat for perfect smooth shine.

Many more shades and finishes in Patty’s store. Give them a try!

Owner Patty notes: Most nail polish colors have matching pressed power eyeshadow and smudge proof Gel eyeliner/shadow. Vegan 5-free Cruelty free Made in USA-Florida. Prices are super reasonable!

CONCLUSION: All three formulas were as always, fabulous, tres chic! The matte and the creme, not so much my colors, but they’d be great canvases for some nail art! My fave was the chocolate-brown scattered holo. Wow, that one, oh my goodness! If you get a chance to order this, do it for no other reason than to get that holo wonder, Pompidou! Au revoir mon chéri!

They’re coming! Deborah Lippmann Fall Gift Sets, starting with Ice Princess

I have a total of four brand spankin’ new gift sets from Deborah Lippmann, available October, 2016. Today’s set is called Ice Princess. A 2-bottle set. In the next week or so I’ll continue sharing, including the Ice Queen (2 bottles) set, Family Jewels (3 bottles & available now) and Her Majesty (9 bottles)! Phew. You gotta love fall.

A $24 value, Ice Princess can be purchased for $17 US, $19 CA. Bottles are 8ml/.27 fl oz ea.

“No need to call your fairy godmother, this Ice Princess duet of polishes from Deborah Lippmann will have you properly prepared for any occasion, from a gala to a girls night…Create crystals at your fingertips with La Vie En Rose, a sheer pastel pink shimmer, and Heart of Glass, an ethereal iridescent shimmer that flashes pink and gold, housed within an ice castle box design with crystal-like accents. Dazzle your wardrobe by layering the two, or wear them alone…”

The folks at Deborah Lippmann have been burning the midnight oil creating all new gift sets for fall. From the duo set, Ice Princess, a pair of dainty shades that are just made for each other. On the left is Heart of Glass. In a clear base are iridescent shards. On the right, La Vie en Rose is a pale blush pink polish with shimmers of rose gold. I layered Heart of Glass over La Vie en Rose on the middle and ring finger.

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.

1st Installment of ILNP Fall 2016 Collection coming soon!

Welcome back! It’s always an exciting time around LacqueredLori’s swatch table when the seasons change. Lots of polish bottles line up waiting their turn and the fragrance of lacquer fills the air. Fall is here and like clockwork, ILNP never fails to make a bold entrance with their new line. Enter ILNP Fall Neutrals and Fall polishes for 2016. By the way, Pre-Orders begin September 16th!

The first four of the new fall ILNP lineup for 2016. More to come! From left: Highline, top center Alexander, bottom center Sitting Fireside and right Clever Girl. Stay tune for more in days to come!

I have 13 new polishes from ILNP to share with you for Fall 2016, but for today, we will start out with the first four. Let’s take a look!

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.

From the 2016 Fall collection by ILNP, Sitting Fireside is another shade shifter, although less obvious, the holo sparkled berry sneaks in a fiery red from time to time. 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.

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.”
