I Love Nail Polish: Gaia

These I Love Nail Polish Ultra Chrome Flakies are giving me life! They are absolutely stunning!

For this manicure, I didn’t use any base polish – just strictly the flakies.  It took three thin layers to become opaque.  Gaia shifts from blue to green to purple.  It’s very mermaid-esque.

If you haven’t picked up ILNP Ultra Chrome Flakies you need to!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

I Love Nail Polish: Phoenix

Happy Mani Monday!

I’ve been on an unofficial no buy (minus my Julep Maven boxes) for the last few months, but when ILNP released their Ultra Chrome Flakies I had to have some!  This is two coats of Phoenix over Julep Judi, which is a dark violet.

The flakies in Phoenix shift through a variety of colors including purple, pink, orange, and gold.  The formula was amazing.  The flakies covered the whole nail with zero bald spots.  I can’t wait to try the other three I picked up!

I Love Nail Polish: Charmingly Purple

I Love Nail Polish brand never disappoints!  Here we have Charmingly Purple from their Spring 2014 collection.  This color is a pastel purple with some periwinkle undertones.  It went on in two easy coats!  The first coat was a little thin, but by the second coat it evened out completely.

The holographic affect is amazing in this polish.  You can see every color in the rainbow.. pink, green, blue, silver!  It’s just so damn pretty.  I Love Nail Polish just began pre-orders for their fall collection yesterday.  I would highly recommend picking up some (and they are a little cheaper when you pre-order).  They have a wide range of holographic polishes and if you’re new to the indie nail polish scene you can’t go wrong with ILNP!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!  I just finished making my grandma’s meatballs for tomorrow’s dinner!  I already ate one– ya know the cook always has to taste the food first. 🙂  I can’t wait to shove my face with them.
