I Love Nail Polish Summer 2014 Collection Swatches & Review


Hi guys! Hope you're all having a good day, I am! Last night I had a fabulous dinner with Michelle from All Lacquered Up. It was a blast chit chatting with someone who "gets" all the craziness of this nail world! Tonight I'm going out to dinner with Ana from Lac Attack, which I am very excited for! I feel like I've been talking to Ana for so long that it will be nice to finally meet her in real life!

Today I have the I Love Nail Polish Summer Collection for you! These will be available for preorder tomorrow over at ILNP.com! For once I actually got one of Barbra's fabulous collections swatched before the preorder...I feel like this is a good accomplishment for me haha! I was actually editing all of these photos while I was on the plane from Orange County to Atlanta on Tuesday and the lady sitting next to me was like ohhhhhh. I'm pretty sure the multi chromes blew her mind! Check out all the swatches after the jump!




 Bikini Bottoms is a bright pink holo. Because of how saturated the pink base is the holo was a bit hard to pick up with my camera. It's much better in person than the photos make it out to be! The formula was good, it was a good consistency and the opacity was really nice. I used 2 coats for the photos below.




 Bishop is a gold/green mulitchrome. This is one of the 3 new Ultra Chromes in this collection.  The shift is nice and strong with this one, at extreme angles you can also see a bit of blue that didn't transfer into my photos. The formula was good, it was a touch sheer but it built easily. I used 3 coats for the photos below.





 Funshine Smoothie is a gold toned yellow holo. I was a bit scared this wouldn't work with my skin tone but it's awesome and I love it! The holo was also stronger in person than it looks in photos for this one also. The formula was good, it was a nice consistency but a little bit sheer. It was easy to build and opaque in 3 coats.




 Masquerade is a pink/gold/green multichrome. This is the second of the new Ultra Chromes, and my personal favorite! The shift was SO strong in this one, it was one that you just have to sit and stare at while moving your hand around. The formula was good, again a little sheer at first but easy to build and opaque in 3 coats.





 Peace is a purple/blue/pink/gold multichome. This is the last of the new Ultra Chromes, the shift was much stronger in person than I managed to capture, my camera was just like nope haha! The formula was good, sheer but buildable and opaque in 3 coats.




Purple Plasma is a royal purple holo with a touch of a pink flash. Again the holo was much stronger in person than in photos! The formula and opacity were both really nice also. I used 2 coats for the photos below.




 Rehab is a blue/green holo. This nicely walks that teal line where its not too blue or too green, the holo is also stronger in person...again! The formula was great, it was a nice consistency and easy to apply. I used 2 coats for the photos below.




 Reminisce (H) is a new holo version of Reminisce that came out in the last ILNP collection! The first is still gorgeous and the holo was easy to see out in the sun. The formula was good, a bit sheer but easily buildable. I used 3 coats for the photos below.




Sirene (H) is another holofied Ultra Chrome. I almost feel like the shift is stronger in this version, not sure if that's just my memory failing me or what....either way I love it! The formula was good, sheer but buildable and opaque in 3 coats.






 Summer Stargazing is a bright blue holo. Again the holo was strong in person, are you tired of reading that yet? The formula was great, it was a nice consistency and the opacity was really nice. I used 2 coats for the photos below.




Undenied (H) is the last of the new holo Ultra Chromes. The holo was really gorgeous in this one and the shift was just as nice as the original! This was the most opaque of the Ultra Chrome bunch and I only needed 2 coats for full opacity.






The I Love Nail Polish Collection will be available for preorder starting tomorrow, May 16th over at ILNP.com!

  11. Thanks so much for the swatches, pre-preorder! Lol! I love getting those emails from Barbara. She really made a badass collection this summer!

    I ordered Summer Stargazing (hello, it's cobalt AND holo) and Masquerade. Masquerade reminds me of one of those Dance Legend multichromes...Roz, I think? I don't have that one (only Sully), but the swatches are beautiful.

    I also picked up Mega, which the replacement for a recent Amazon purchase: Sally Hansen Nail Prism Diamond 01. Geez, I forgot how friggin' AWFUL pre-3/5 Free polish smelled! It makes me ill, yet I'm wearing as I type this...because it's f'n magical.*
