Hey everyone, in anticipation of the ILNP Fall Collection release this Friday Oct. 2, I've got the picks I purchased from the preorder earlier this month on the blog today so you can peruse and I can do my best to tempt you.
These are some gorgeous polishes, with a little something for everyone, we've got vamp, we've got flake, we've got multichrome and we have HOLO!
The formula on all of these were top notch, which is what I've come to love an expect from ILNP. All were two coaters and swatched without top coat. So let's get to the gorgeous polishes shall we?!
First up we have ILNP Mountain View. This one I knew I had to have no matter what it looked like. I live right next door to Mountain View (home to Google and many other high techs) and I write about the city for my job all the time, so I knew I just had to have this beauty no matter what! And to my wonderful surprise the color is just AMAZING.
This polish is a darkened teal jelly packed with holo shards and copper flakies, which give the polish such a depth and sets it apart from any old regular darkened teal holo!
Next we have the super vampy and gorgeous ILNP Diablo. This is a gorgeous oxblood jelly polish with the gorgeous holo shards ILNP has offered and perfects. The holo particles in the jelly base have such a gorgeous depth to them, its like sparkles for miles!
This is the delicate ILNP Maiden Lane. This was another polish that pulled me in from the start. It is a beautiful soft ultra holo, which mixes fine holo pigment with the holo shards and just a touch of color for the ultimate linear holo finish. The color of this one is very subtle, but it is a gorgeous lavender leaning grey polish. I say this is the perfect palate cleanser color that defies any season! It's a wonderful transitional color.
Next up is the ILNP Greatness, and boy is this polish just filled with greatness! This is from ILNP Ultra Chrome line, which have the best shifts in my opinion, and this is just the ultimate fall warm hued color shift. When I wore it I felt is shifted mostly between a magenta/darkened red to orange/gold. It represents the changing leaf colors perfectly, can't wait to do some seasonal nail art with this!!!
It is soooo the year of the brown holos and ILNP's addition to the trend is Overnight Bag. The awesome thing about Overnight Bag is, it's brown, but it is also sometimes pulling a vampy reddish tones. It also has the holo shard pieces and other holo pigment suspended in a jelly base creating a scattered sparkle effect. A standout in the collection if you ask me!
And finally, a flakie to match the multichrome shift of Greatness, this is ILNP Glory. I swatched this one over Overnight Bag because I saw it in the fan group and it is what made both Glory and Overnight Bag a must purchase for me! And, after a long day of swatching, this was what I ended up with on my nails so this is my mani for the next few days too. I just love it SO much! This is one coat over Overnight Bag, so these flakies definitely pack a punch. But I also like how they are small pieces, so they don't completely overpower the base, you can still see the beauty of Overnight Bag peaking through.
Now let's dish, what did you get from the preorder? Or have you not purchased yet and are going to during the regular release of the Fall Collection which is this Friday October 2? Either way which are your favorites? I am in love with each one of these and I am so happy I got all of them, and all because I bet on my spouse losing at the casino in Lake Tahoe a few weekends back. Hooray to betting on losing! I win every time!
Hope you all have fantastic weeks ahead of you! I've got the new Smitten Polish collection on Wednesday and a super fun surprise nail art project launching Friday so stay tuned!!!
