I Love Nail Polish Spring 2014 Swatches


Hi guys! Today I have a bunch of new Spring 2014 polishes from I Love Nail Polish to share with you! These will all be available for pre-order on Feb. 14th at ILNP.com! Barbra's Spring polishes this year are pretty amazing, ranging from holos to more Ultra Chromes to another fab Holographic Ultra Chrome! Check out all the swatches after the jump!




Charmingly Purple is a medium purple holo. The holo is a bit stronger in person, but it's nothing too crazy! The formula was good, it was a good consistency and the opacity was good! I used 2 coats for the photos below.



Cutie Pop is a pink holo, this also has a nice golden shimmer to it. I love the contrast the shimmer gives and the holo is gorgeous and much stronger in person. The formula was good, it was easy to apply and the opacity was good. I used 2 coats for the photos below.



Dreaming In Violet is a purple holo. This is a bit lighter and more holo than Charmingly Purple was. This might be a good holo option if you're looking for a shade like the Pantone Color of the year, Radiant Orchid. The formula was good, it was nice and opaque and easy to apply. I used 2 coats for the photos below. 




Kings & Queens is a vivid dark purple holo. This holo is cray...it looks strong in my photos but it was even stronger in person! The formula was great, it was a good consistency and the opacity was good. I used 2 coats for the photos below.



Mega is a silver holo. This was SO much stronger in person, for some reason it was completely freaking out my camera :( The formula was good but on the sheer side, I used 3 coats for the photos below. 



Music Box is a light blue green holo. This is one of my favorites from the Spring polishes, it's almost pastel but not quite. The formula was again, really nice. It was easy to apply and the opacity was good. I used 2 coats for the photos below. 



Nostalgia (H) is red/gold/green holographic Ultra Chrome. Nostalgia was my favorite of all the Ultra Chromes so I'm so glad to see it get a holographic version! It's still all kinds of amazing in the shade and lower lighting and the holo just makes it better. The formula was good, it was nice and opaque and application was a breeze. I used 2 coats for the photos below, all photos are in natural sunlight. 




Princeton is a minty green holo. This also has a little bit of golden shimmer like Cutie Pop had. You really can't go wrong with a minty green! The formula was good, it was a good consistency and nice and opaque. I used 2 coats for the photos below.



Reminisce is a green/blue/purple Ultra Chrome. The shift in this one can be a little shy but in the right lighting it is all kinds of gorgeous! The formula was good, it was nice and opaque and easy to apply. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

Sirene blue/green/purple Ultra Chrome. This one is nice and shifty in pretty much every lighting except for direct sunlight. The formula was good but a touch on the sheer side. It does build up easily so you don't need to layer it. I used 3 coats for the photos below.

Undenied is a purple/red/gold Ultra Chrome. This is the most shifty of the new Ultra Chromes, it was one of those where I just stood in the shade waving my hand around like an idiot while staring at all the colors haha! The formula was good, it was nice and opaque and easy to work with. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

  1. Jen these are all GORGEOUS swatches - thanks so much for posting! I am chomping at the bit to pick up a few of these lovelies. ILNP have upped their game like WHOAH in the past year and I am really happy both for myself as a polish fiend, and as a lover of the brand and indie polishes in general. I just know I am going to need a few comparisons, may I ask for some??

    Music Box looks like some of the Lacquer Lust Birthstone Holos to me - would love to see it compared to Zircon (and maybe also against Aquamarine, although I am sure that one is much bluer).

    Kings & Queens compared to CbL Unorthodox Annie (it looks like Kings & Queens is much brighter??).

    I always have such a tough time telling some of these ultra chromes/color shifters apart!! Does Sirene compared with Cirque's Epoch at all? What about Undenied vs. ILNPs own Cygnus Loops (my absolute fave from last year)??

    I KNOW I ask too much of you!! Thanks for indulging my polishmania, however! ;)

  6. Wow! I love both the light purples, the pink, the aqua, AND the minty holos. I haven't tried ILNP yet, but you're swatches make them look so beautiful! I need them all in my life. :)

    I applied for their blogger program, but I think that I'm still too small for them to notice me. But, hey, it's always better to try and be rejected than to not try at all.... right? ;)

  7. I really love these holos! I'm not sure what to think about the ultra chromes, though. They are all kind of starting to look the same!

  11. Finger Paints nail polish just put out a new color to the permanent collection and its holo. It is a silver holo called Chromatic Creation. I just got it today at Sally Beauty. Best part about this is all fingers paints are BOGO right now so if you wanted to you could get 2 for the price of one.
