I Love Nail Polish Ultra Chrome Collection Swatches & Review


Hey guys, happy Friday! Anyone have big plans this weekend? My only plan is taking Degen to the dog beach since the weather should be nice! Degen is actually kind of terrified of the ocean but I like walking him along the sand...its a good workout for both of us!

Today I have the fantastical new Ultra Chrome Collection from I Love Nail Polish to share with you! These are going on pre-order today at Noon PST, and will be available for regular sale at the beginning of September. For all the pre-order information check out ILNP.com. You can also sign up for a chance to win a set of these here! If you want these I would highly suggest you pre-order them, I have a strong feeling that they will sell like crazy and you don't want to miss out!

The Ultra Chrome Collection is 4 crazy multichromatic polishes. Polishes like these are my weakness, I had to seriously restrain myself from including like 20 photos of each polish in this post. If you like multichromes you will also love these! Check out the swatches after the jump!

Birefringence shifts from blue to purple and pink, at extreme angles I could also see a touch of gold coming out! The formula was good, the consistency was great as was the opacity. No need to layer this over a dark color to make it opaque! I used 2 coats on it's own for the photos below, the first photo is in natural sunlight...all other photos are in the shade.






Cyngus Loop shifts from blue to purple, fuchsia, gold and even a bit of orange. This is my favorite of the bunch, it was SO multichromatic, there were some times when I could see up to 5 different colors on 1 nail...you can see what I mean on my index finger in some of the photos below.  The formula was also great on this one, great consistency and really nice opacity! I used 2 coats on it's own for the photos below, the first photo is in natural sunlight...all other photos are in the shade.






Mutagen shifts from vivid green to blue and purple. At some angles i could also see a bit of pink and golden yellow coming out but I couldn't catch that on camera. This was another favorite for me, but for some reason it was a tricky one to photograph, this is about a million times better in person! The formula was a bit on the thick side with this one but application was easy and the opacity was great.  I used 2 coats on it's own for the photos below, the first photo is in natural sunlight...all other photos are in the shade.






My Little Glacier shifts from and almost grey blue to an icy blue. This one while pretty wasn't quite as fantastical as the other shades in the collection. The shift in this was very subtle, I'm not sure if layering it over a dark base would help pull out the color shift but it's on my list to try! The formula was a bit on the thick side with this one but I had no application issues and the opacity was great. I used 2 coats on it's own for the photos below, the first photo is in natural sunlight...all other photos are in the shade.





Overall all 4 of these are great, my personal favorite is Cyngus Loop but you really can't go wrong with any of them. I love how opaque these are, usually these types of multichromes aren't opaque on their own so that was a great surprise!

The Ultra Chrome Collection from I Love Nail Polish is available today for pre-order at ilnp.com at Noon PST, regular sale starts September 6th. Each polish will retail for $11.50!

  4. Yay! I finally got the set and an extra of Mutagen and Birefrigence. It took over 2 hours to get the order placed as the server was overloaded... to the max. I hope she isn't completely overwhelmed by all the orders but good for her. Looks like she makes a superior product. I can't wait to get them and try them on in a few weeks. I've never pre-ordered nail polish. I would have laughed my tuchas off if you would have told me I was going to be addicted to nail polish at 42.

    I hope everyone who wants these jumps on it and pre-orders to make sure they get the colors they want.
