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.

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.”

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.

Here are three of the 13 polish collection of Ultra Chrome Flakies currently in stock at ILNP.com.

The three Ultra Chrome Flakies I used for this Mardi Gras mani are, from bottom: Metropolis, Open Fields, and on the right Rapture.

A couple of charmers from Spell Polish “A Charm of Powerful Trouble” collection

Who can resist a great holo or matte? Me neither! I’m a sucker for everything holo and everything matte, and these two beauties from Spell Polish don’t disappoint. Today I have Lizard’s Leg (a linear holo) and Wool of Bat (a velvety matte). Each so dynamically different and each are breathtaking.

Love the rainbowy holographic goodness of Lizard's Leg and the dark fuzzy matted opulance of Woof of Bat from the "A Charm of Trouble" collection, available now!

First up is Lizard’s Leg! From the moment I saw this one I knew it would be a joy to swatch. It’s got everything. A linear Holo chrome, a dusty, navy blue, quick drying, highly pigmented, smooth and perfect application in 1-2 coats, long wearing and eye-catching in the sunlight. I wore this stunner for 5 days with little tip wear only on my right hand, no tip wear on the left, and no chipping. I used two coats with a single topcoat. It is described as “is a Steely Navy Blue linear holographic with a subtle cast of fuchsia sparkles.” All bottles are 15 mL/.5 oz.

Lizard's leg flashes beautifully in the sun!

Wool of Bat is a black violet matte polish so complex, you’ll wonder at it’s beauty. It is a velvety finish and for accents or to change the look even more, try a clear topcoat! I love multitasking polishes don’t you? It is described as “a rich velvety black with an iridescent, sparkly purple undertone and a matte finish. Add clear topcoat to bring out its iridescent sparkle!” It is suggested to use 2-3 coats for full coverage depending on your technique and shake/roll before use for Spell Polish mattes. After seeing this shade, I’m now on the hunt for a cozy sweater to match!

Such an elegant matte, is Wool of Bat!

Beach Bum by Super Nails is SO me!

When owner/creator KC, of Super Nails told me she was sending me her beach themed glitter topper, Beach Bum, my heart lept. She said she knew I was a beach girl and it would be perfect for me. She nailed it! I tell everyone I think I have sea water running through my veins and I may even be part mermaid. When I’m around the water I just feel complete. I love blues, aquas, greens and iridescent shimmers and shades. So let’s take a look at a beach bum’s Beach Bum!

Beach Bum is as mermaidy as a glitter topper can get.

KC describes Beach Bum as ” a Clear polish base with dense tiny holographic and metallic blue, teal, aqua and gold starfishes, and blue circles.”

If you’re going to the beach or just want a fun summery mani, look no further! Ooh, it would be gorgeous over a deep ocean blue for a salty sultry evening look. Yes, I’ll have to try that next time.

These come in two sizes, mini and full.

So grab yourself a bottle of Beach Bum and head to your own spit of sand. The formula is smooth and loaded…no fishing! Excuse that pun, I couldn’t help myself. 😉
