I Love Nail Polish Fall 2014 Collection Swatches & Review


Happy Friday! Guess what today is? It's my birthday..woohoo. Well kind of woohoo, I'm turning 30 which makes me feel old. At least I have the day off from work so I can wallow in my oldness at home with Degen! It's actually my Grandma's birthday today too so we're going out to dinner tonight to celebrate! You know what else is today? It's the day I Love Nail Polish releases their Fall 2014 Collection for regular sale, because of that I have swatches of all 11 gorgeous polishes from the collection to share with you! Check out all the swatches after the jump!





Abundance is copper/red/gold/orange/green ultra chrome! This is the newest addition to ILNP's range of Ulta Chromes and man is it a good one, they describe this as Fall in a bottle and they are spot on with that! The formula is good, its a great consistency and easy to apply with good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.



Shade

Shade

Atomic Sherbet is an orange holo with an orange flash of shimmer. The formula was good, it is a touch sheer at first but it builds easily. I used 3 coats for the photos below.





Bishop (H) is a holographic ultra chrome that shifts between green, gold and blue. This is much more holo in person than I could capture with my camera! If you liked the non-holo version of this you'll love the holo version even more! The formula was great, easy to apply with really nice opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.




Black Orchid is a deep burgundy purple with a flash purple shimmer and a really pretty holo! The formula was great, it was easy to apply and the opacity was good. I used 2 coats for the photos below.





Champagne Blush is a pink base with a golden shimmer and strong holo. The formula was good, it was a nice consistency with really good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.




Fall Semester is a dark teal blue with a blue flash of shimmer and a strong holo. The holo was much stronger in person than in photos! The formula was good, it was easy to apply with good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.




Homecoming is a dark eggplant purple holo. There is a little bit of a golden shimmer to this also. The formula was great, again very easy to apply and nice and opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.




Iconic is a gold holo with a golden flash of shimmer. The holo is crazy strong in this one, photos do no justice to it! The formula was good, it was a bit sheer at first but it builds really easily. I used 3 coats for the photos below.




Masquerade (H) is a holographic Ultra Chrome that flashes between purple, fuchsia, green and gold. The holo was much much stronger in person! The formula was great, it was easy to apply and the opacity was good. I used 2 coats for the photos below.




Shade

Mega (L) is a silver holo. The holo is one of the holo-y holos that ever holoed. If you've been in the market for a great silver holo look no further! The formula was good, it was sheer at first but easily buildable and opaque in 3 coats.




Peace (H) is a holographic Ultra Chrome that shifts between different shades of blue and purple. Again, like the others the holo is much stronger in person! The formula was great, it was a good consistency with good opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

  25. Happy birthday! Have a fun weekend!

  26. My two cents: The original contains a larger particle of Spectraflair - that results in a linear holo effect, but one that is somewhat fractured or glittering. The new version is a smaller particle, so it's smoother, "tighter", and less sparkling - a stronger linear holo arc. Like the difference in chunky and micro glitters, basically.

  27. Happy birthday, Jen! I hope you had a great 30th! I am 31, and it's hard for me to believe! : |

    I think Barbara outdid herself here. I preordered (like any good ILNP-ette would, lol), and have been in particular love with Homecoming (that gold shimmer!) and Iconic. Worn them both several times (rare for me), and they are flawless in application, finish, originality, and wear. I need backups!

    Thanks for all you do! I really love your blog. I couldn't go without your swatches, and sneak peaks, and the lemmings they create. ;) I feel right at home in my online polish community, and you're part of what makes our little family so great. <3

  40. Thanks, Lark! I figured it was different grades of spectraflair but the original is already pretty linear. My eye is not that great at seeing the differences between grades so I'm thinking I don't need this.
