ILNP Fall 2015 swatches…and I’m on the home stretch!

I’m down to three ILNP Fall polishes after this and I’m ecstatic with today’s entry. Presenting Cameo (H), Clockwork and After Midnight. These are all different formulas and finishes so it was fun to mix it up today. Let’s see how different they are!

First up is Cameo (H), Cameo’s big sister. It’s a holographic version and the color shifts are nearly countless depending on angle, lighting and even the amount of coats used! I used 2 and it’s suggested 2-3.

Ultra Chromes by ILNP are amazing and Cameo (H) is the holo version of it's sister, Cameo. And of course, you can't just show one angle of these  beauties because they are multi-shaded. Here in a shadier angle you can see shades of green, copper, gold and magenta.

Yes, same Cameo (H)…amazing huh?

Cameo (H) in sunlight or flash really lets that purple shine through.

Cameo (H) is described as, "a holographic version of the original Cameo Ultra Chrome polish! The new Cameo (H) contains just the right amount of holographic splendor to add a beautiful rainbow sparkle to the polish. All without ruining the intense color shift effect! Cameo (H) effortlessly shifts through an incredible array of vivid pink, purple, copper, gold, and a stunningly vibrant green. Quite similar to the Masquerade Ultra Chrome, Cameo (H) leans more pink and has an even stronger color shifting effect. Cameo (H) is part of ILNP’s "Ultra Chrome" class of multichromatic nail polishes; formulated to apply directly to the nail without the need for a base color. Fully opaque in 2-3 coats!"

Clockwork is perfect for fall, glitzy but very classy.

Clockwork is one of those classy metallics that really attract attention. Wear this baby and you won't even feel like you need jewelry! 2 coats!

Clockwork is described as, "a jaw dropping bronze holographic with an extremely bright metallic finish. The assortment of metallic flakes coupled with a range of holographic particles, all dipped in a silky beige base, give Clockwork a truly unique combination of class and head turning vibrancy. Clockwork is part of ILNP’s “Precious Metals” class of incredibly vivid metallic finish nail polishes; specifically formulated with various ultra-thin metallic flakes for a blinding sparkle with an undeniably rich finish and super-easy removal!"

The three I have left to share with you are Maiden Lane, First Class and Lulu. All these are available now for order so don’t wait for me. Go take a look!

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.”

Well, I’m down to six ILNP Ultra Chrome Flakies to review for you, and they are available for pre-order now as of this date, 3/13/15. Today I’ll share a pair of new flakies to tempt you. Paradox and Paradox (H)! ILNP Ultra Chrome Flakies are fully opaque and can be worn alone or over any color without affecting the intense color shifting properties. Here is a sneak peak (I previously posted) of the new lineup of polishes from ILNP for spring 2015.

ILNP describes Paradox like this. "If Supernova was a little bit too green for you, Paradox is the answer! Just like Supernova, Paradox has an extreme color shift that travels through teal, blue, violet, pink, and fuchsia. Of course, you'll definitely catch glimpses of other colors at extreme angles and under different lighting conditions. You'll love it, guaranteed!" This is three thin coats with no undies.

Can’t have too many views, but here’s another.

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.

Neon Rosebud Ultra Chrome Flaky polish by ILNP is BRILLIANT!

How does one find a favorite out of 13 perfect Ultra Chrome Flakies from ILNP? Not really possible but Neon Rosebud is pretty much up there on my list. Maybe that’s why I have been saving it almost the last. I nearly swatched her over black, but I have been looking for a nail art idea to use the shade I finally chose for undies. Almost Midnight by L’Oreal won out over black for this look. It’s a deep deep eggplant creme. A perfect fit for a flaky as brilliant as Neon Rosebud!

Neon Rosebud is perfect over any shade, but I chose the very deep eggplant creme by L'Oreal, "Almost Midnight".

Neon Rosebud is described as, "Neon Rosebud is just...wow. The primary color range of this beautiful nail polish travels through super vivid fuchsia, green, and gold with hints of other colors in different lighting! A true stunner that lives up to its name!"

For this look I simply used a single diagonal piece of pink foil striping tape over the base color. Then filled in half the nail with Neon Rosebud, then topped with a single layer of topcoat.

I'm love this shifting from brilliant pink to gold to green, even orange!

My last swatch of these fab flakies will be Metropolis. I’m still pondering what look I should go for. Which UCFs have you picked up from ILNP and how are you wearing them? I would love to hear from you!
