SNEAK PEEK: I Love Nail Polish (ILNP) Spring Collection 2014

Happy Monday! I missed you on Friday. I got an awesome opportunity to do a cool nail polish-related somethin’ somethin’ so I was feverishly polishing all last week and this weekend for that. At some point, I can share it with you! :)

So today I’m super excited to give you a little sneak peek at a few Spring release polishes from I Love Nail Polish (ILNP). There will be eleven total polishes in the ILNP Spring Collection: 2 Ultra Holos, 4 Ultra Chromes and 5 pastel holos. I’ve always loved ILNP. Barbra executes everything she does…from formulas, to colors, to finishes and packaging…with absolute precision. This collection is no exception! I switched up my photos a bit. Multi-chromes are nearly impossible to photograph in my setup. So I ventured out-of-the-box and did some natural sunlight shots. Oh how I wish I could shoot like this all the time! All swatches are done without top coat.

Let’s start with the Ultra Chromes. This is Sirène. This teal-y chrome shifts to blue, violet and red. It’s even more amazing in person! My swatch is three coats.

Oh my goodness. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you may have seen the EPIC nail mail I received from Barbra at ILNP awhile back. It’s no secret that I literally squeal over her polishes. Every creation is more fabulous than the last. I’ve been soooo backed up with swatch commitments and I knew the holidays would slow me down…so Barbra knew it may be some time before they made their appearance on WPP. But it’s been KILLING me to see all of these ILNP pretties just sitting there…waiting to be tried. I was looking at all the bottles lined up in a row and loved how four shades looked together. I took a cue from the Manicurator (who has done swatch posts with one matching accent nail) and put everything together in today’s post. All of these shades are STILL available in the ILNP store.  :)

Molly…wow. You’re probably tired of hearing me say how much I like berry shades of polish. Add some ultra-sparkly holo and I’m sold. The finish is absolutely gorgeous! This one makes my heart melt. LOL.

*NEW* I Love Nail Polish Cremes, Holos, Ultra Holos and Duochromes

This is a rare weekend post and it’s MASSIVE. Lots of swatching has been going on in the Mani Cave! I’m excited to show you all twenty-one (YES, 21!!) new releases from I Love Nail Polish (ILNP). ILNP is one of my favorite indies and Barbra, the brains (and muscle) behind the operation has been busy! I love me some glittery goodness, but I’ll always favor my beloved crèmes…and holos are a close second. So ILNP’s new collection of crèmes and holos had me at…um…crèmes and holos! Bonus: 3 duochromes too! There’s lots to see so I’ll keep the commentary to a minimum.

Today will be a rare day with two posts. I love Digit-al Dozen week – but I hate to delay swatching polish that deserves to be swatched! My third Digit-al Dozen bling mani will be posted this afternoon. Sorry in advance for SPAMMING my email subscribers!

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I recently received a beautiful package of goodies from Barbra at I Love Nail Polish (ILNP). This was seriously like Christmas for me. I love ILNP nail polish (ILILNPNP - I need a bumper sticker!)  Today I have four polishes from her new holographic line, three jewel-toned colors and one clear topcoat. All have an ultra-fine, scattered holo effect. It’s subtle…but not quite as subtle as my photos depict…my indoor shots don’t do the rainbow-y goodness justice. All four polishes really come to life in the sun.

First up is Grape Alicious. The name is perfect. It’s a deep, eye-catching Welch’s Grape Juice purple. It’s really spectacular outdoors. My swatch is three coats.

(Sorta) Tribal Nail Art with ILNP Concrete Sprinkles Art Club Duo Pens

Nail art…finally! My first love. I do love swatching new polishes – but it’s nice to sit down and do one look and actually wear it for longer than 15 minutes! Today I have my first semi-tribal design. I say “semi” because it just came out a little friendlier than I imagined. LOL. I used two coats of I Love Nail Polish (ILNP) Concrete Sprinkles as a base (I’ll swatch some of the new ILNP holos in a separate post…prepare to love them!) For the design I used Art Club Nail Art Duo Pens in White and Royal Blue.

OPI Mariah Carey Anti-Bleak and ILNP A Nice Chianti

I have just one pic today. This post was supposed to be a plain ole’ swatch of OPI Anti-Bleak from the Mariah Carey Collection. I get Anti-Bleak on the nail, clean it up, everything is fabulous…then I finish with a coat of Seche Vite. A tainted, pink-tinted, glittery coat of Seche Vite! I don’t know how or when that happened. I have multiple bottles of Seche Vite and I must have reached for one that I used while polishing my nails in my sleep. In any event, it was hardly a true swatch of Anti-Bleak anymore. So I added one generous coat of I Love Nail Polish (ILNP) A Nice Chianti. Then I went to bed. I didn’t even re-top coat it the next day. I grabbed the camera and took two pics for posterity’s sake. And one of the pics actually turned out decent !…[it's clickable today]
