I you have any or all of the rest of the Mega polishes from indie maker, ILNP, you’ll truly appreciate the new Mega (X), a holographic powerhouse!
ILNP began the line with Mega, a full-blown, no-filler SpectraFlair polish. She’s a rainbow in a bottle. Then there’s Mega (L), an even more linear polish due to it’s even more microfine holographic particles. She’s got that smooth rainbow effects you’ll love. Before (X) came the most recent in the Mega line, Mega (S). This SCATTERED version is intense and also a winner. All Megas sell for $10ea.
Now, Mega (X) is the big kahuna, the showstopper, the…well, let’s take a look!
Of course, polishes like this really shine in the sun, but the SpectraFlair is so full and evident, you will know that your digits will be eye-catching in regular lighting.
So pick up a Mega (X), or all of them! With this much holo, they are a steal at $10ea!
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.”
I am in a mad rush today to bring you the newest collection of polishes from Virago Varnish, the Enchanting Sirens. Why the rush? They will be available for order tomorrow, Friday, April 17, 2015! I was a bit late getting these in but here they are in all their holographic glory. If you’ve tried any of the star-studded polishes, namely the holographic or glitter loaded smooth-as-silk varnishes from Virago, you know you will not want to miss out on these. Let get started!
How can anyone resist the Siren’s call? Let’s start with Entice!
Next in the Enchanting lineup is sexy Femme Fatale.
Feeling seduced yet? Well, here is Seduction!
Here is a perfect combo of golden lights in Melody!
While we are singing the Siren’s song, how about a bit of Harmony?
When I chatted with indie polish brand Virago Varnish‘s owner/creator, Adrienne about her upcoming collection, I kept getting more and more excited. One, because her formulas and colors are awesome. Two, I knew ahead of time the glitters in this set would be beyond belief. I was right! I will add to that and echo her excitement that one of the glitters in the set came with an honor every indie polish maker dreams about. She says, “Virago is excited to announce this stunning lacquer Radiance. It will be gifted at GBK’s Celebrity Gift Lounge honoring the 2015 MTV Movie Awards Nominees and Presenters!” How cool is that?! I will start there after I show you the bottles! 🙂
Madam Glam, I salute you! I received five polishes from Madam Glam and every single one goes beyond my expectations. I am telling you, if you haven’t tried their nail lacquers, DO NOT HESITATE another moment. They are phenominal. I haven’t had a chance yet to try the other cosmetics but I can imagine they are just as impressive. I wanted to share these with you immediately!
I HAVE start out with a Valentine’s Day nail art since tomorrow is the big day. Now I’m no pro or even try to give you the impression that I’m any kind of nail artist. But hand painted hearts I can do. Since I received a pretty pastel pink polish called “In Love” I spied it as the perfect base for my Vday mani. In Love is described as, “”You don’t have to be in love to fall in love with this shade! An innocent pale pink that brings back the memory of your first romance.” Two coats!
• Pink Creme
• One to two coats for full opacity
• Very smooth to apply
Next, here is your next lemming! If you are looking for a ONE-COATER neon that won’t stain, that isn’t completely matte, you won’t need an undie white to make it stand out, is 5-free and will absolutely sear your eyes with brilliant neon awesomeness, Mint Cocktail is for you. In fact, since you’re going to want this on your nails and your toes this summer, you should probably order a backup. I just kept saying, “Wow!” as I applied this quick drying hyper-pigmented showstopper. Lookee! 🙂 I was also sent a fab GLOSSY AS HECK black called Black Hole that is perfect in two coats. Also an essential in your polish arsenal and it’s what I used for accent here. Mint Cocktail is described as, “”Let this breathtaking shade see the light and you’re sure to have an amazing mood for the day. Vitalizing and full of surprises, you won’t regret giving a punchy touch to your nails.” When I saw my Instagram bud Miss Holly Berries review Mint Cocktail, and saw her swatch on her Youtube channel I was blown away. And if the brains behind Madam Glam shades are listening in, please please please create a hot pink, neon blue and neon orange in this formula! We’ll be bowing down before you chanting, “we’re not worthy, we’re not worthy!” 😉
• One careful coat or two thin coats
• Unlike other neons, no white base required for full opacity
Black Hole is described as, “Classy, deep and trendy, Black Hole will be your best friend during cooler seasons!”
• Two thin coats for full opacity
• Very smooth to apply
The weather this month is turning out to be another “snowpocalypse” for some in the USA. So who isn’t dreaming of sunny spring and summer days? Here is Sea, Swing and Sun to inspire you. Two coats! Sea, Swing and Sun is described as, “Imagine being in front of clear caribbean waters under a cloudless sky. Here’s the most adorable pastel baby blue to make you feel like summer is around.” Two coats!
• One heavy coat or two thin coats for full opacity
• Very smooth to apply
It’s only February and we still have some chilly days and nights ahead. Make A Wish is a blue glitter combo with it’s dark jelly base is perfect for those cold snowy times. It reminds me of a winter midnight sky. I painted one coat over Black Hole. Make A Wish is described as, “Your wish for the perfect glittery blue nail polish came true with this gorgeous nail polish shade. Now you can sparkle all year long!” One coat over Black Hole.
• One coat over base coat, black is superb, 2-3 coats alone
• On the thick side, but smooth to apply

I was so excited to be able to review these beautiful polishes from Virago Varnish. From the time I saw the first teasers I was in awe. Glitters are kryptonite to me anyway, but when they are this smooth in tinted jelly bases, oh my! All three of these are seriously stunning, very smooth and easy to apply, and remove! You’ll reach full opacity in 2-3 coats. I found full opacity in two! Here they are!
Here is how my sweet little trio arrived!
The first polish I tried, We Can Still Be Friends, was amazing. I kept say, “Wow!” lol Sitting here all by my lonesome (hubby at work) and I’m sure my cat thought I’d lost it!
The next is a glorious holo-filled grapey purple glitter in a purple base. It’s Not You It’s Me, Lovely!
Here are the deets on this sweet trio. Who could possibly break up with you when you digits look this fabulous? 😉

This is my first experience with Virago and I have to tell you I am seriously impressed. Well done Adrienne! There are a ton of indies out there. Lots of competition and I’ve been so fortunate to end up with great companies. Congratulations to Virago for producing such great polishes!
I have a funny story to share with you. (well, it wasn’t at the time). When I was in high school, there were two years, back to back that I happened to have a boyfriend during the month of February. Both of those jerks broke up with me the very week of Valentine’s Day! Sob, woe was me. What kind of tightwad does that? LOL Anyway, true story. What is your Single’s Awareness story? I would love to hear!
