Indie Swatch and Review - ILNP Fall 2015 collection (Partial)

Nothing to Disclose

Hello lovely readers! Today I have 5 beautiful polishes from the Fall 2015 collection by ILNP.
With 17 polishes, the Fall 2015 by ILNP is pretty large by most standards. It features a number of finishes and elements including: multichrome, ultra-metallic flakies, ultra-chrome flakies, and holographic particles.

This is my first time blogging about ILNP and you will be seeing much more about this 3-free, vegan, cruelty-free, boutique polish line. Keep reading after the jump for more on these polishes!

For today’s post, I will be reviewing the following 5 polishes: Clockwork, Maiden Lane, Mona Lisa, Spiced Eggnog, and Top Down.  Photographs of the swatches below were taken under artificial daylight.

Clockwork

Clockwork is part of ILNP’s Ultra Metallics™ line. This a beige-leaning, bronze holographic polish with a bright metallic finish. It features metallic flakies and scattered holo particles in a range of sizes. It is ultra-shiny with a very strong holographic effect.  The polish removes easily, as described in the website, but be careful not to end up with shimmer all over your fingers as you remove the polish!  The formula is very nice. It only takes 2 smooth coats for full coverage.  Shown below are 2 coats plus top coat.

Maiden Lane

Maiden Lane is part of the new ILNP Ultra Holo line. This is a charcoal grey holographic polish with subtle blue undertones. The oversized  holo particles are both scattered and linear. This makes for a beautiful “in your face” holo effect that can be easily appreciated even under artificial daylight. The polish applies nicely, despite the oversized holo particles. Shown below are 3 thin coats plus top coat.

Mona Lisa

Mona Lisa is also part of the Ultra Holo line. It is a brown holographic polish with red undertones. This polish also features the oversized holo particles. Like the rest of the collection, the polish applies smoothly and covers nicely with just 2 coats. Shown below are 2 coats plus top coat.

Spiced Eggnog

This yummy polish features metallic crimson and gold flakies and scattered holographic particles in a creamy yellow base. The polish is gorgeous and very appropriate for the Holiday season, but it clashes against my skin tone!  The formula applied like a crelly, and requires 2-3 easy, thin coats for opacity. Shown below are 3 coats plus top coat.

Top Down

Top Down is also part of the Ultra Holo line. It is a glacier blue holographic polish that just shines effortlessly! It also features a nice formula that applies smoothly and covers after 2-3 coats. Shown below are 3 thin coats plus top coat.

Overall, I love this collection! The ultra holos are stunning and truly “in your face”! Also, if you are a collector of brown holographic polishes, then Mona Lisa and Clockwork are for you. My favorite from these 5 polishes is Top Down. It is beautiful and perfect to use year-round.

The polishes retail for about $10.00 individually or $180.00 for the whole 17-polish collection. You can purchase these here.

Do you own these or any other ILNP polishes? I would love to hear from you!
