Now that Spring is fully on deck, our nail lacquer lovers are seeking all things shiny and new. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate Spring than freshly painted nails. 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. These babies all scream for the sun (which is why I shot most of the photos in the sun!). Let’s take a look!
Let’s start with a somewhat nude but fully holographic stunner, Apricot Cream.
Deja Vu is an intense linear holo, the best kind!
Rolling Hills, ahh, you can almost smell the dew on fresh-cut grass!
Sweet, petite and oh so feminine, Daisy Jane!
Major sparkle and long wearing Bulletproof Symphony.
Drop dead gorgeous over any nail color or alone, Mayfield.
Yes, big cities enjoy spring too! Here is Skyscraper.
Conclusion: Not to sound like a broken record. But I don’t know any more words I can say but this collection is a dream. From formula, to application, great wear and gorgeous shades and sparkle, ILNP Spring Collection is drop dead gorgeous!
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.”

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!
Here are three of the 13 polish collection of Ultra Chrome Flakies currently in stock at ILNP.com.
If you haven’t already picked up some of these, I highly recommend them! Whether you use them in nail art, an accent nail are on every digit on your body, you’re sure to love and treasure these beauties. Do you own any, all or want to? Let me know. I love hearing from you!

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.
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.
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!
I highly recommend this collection and to date, I’ve been thrilled with each of Heather’s polishes. More to come! 🙂

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!
Look at this glitter packed beauty. It’s like the inside of a treasure chest!
I used one shade here over a teal-leaning shimmery pale green.
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.
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. 😉
Super Nails polishes are Indie Handmade Nail Polish 5-Free Custom Blended Dense Glitter Lacquer.
