Mail-time: ILNP Summer 2015 & New Ultra Holos!

Hey guys! Happy Friday! Wooo!

I've got some tasty, tasty eyecandy for you today: the brand new Summer 2015 collections from ILNP! There is a set of 11 Summer polishes as well as a set of 10 new Ultra Holos. Both collections will be available for pre-order from ilnp.com Friday, June 12th, a week from today!

All of these polishes are blowing my mind, but I'll shut up and let you take a look! :)

I'll start with the Summer 2015 collection first! (Oh, by the way, I apologize for Ham's absence in this post! I photographed these bottle shots after midnight, and he was totally down for the count!)

 ILNP Summer 2015:

This is a really interesting mix of polishes! There is a variety of finishes, from scattered shimmer/ holos to glitter holographics, neon shimmers, a new Ultra Chrome, and even a jelly neon! (Plus, let's not forget about Mega (X)!)

L to R: Mega (X), Paper Route, Long Walks, Super Juiced, Summer Crush, So Coral

You can see a preview of Mega (X) here. Paper Route is a soft heather gray with lovely scattered, ultra-fine holo shimmer. Long Walks (which I think is going to be a fave!) is a mauve-taupe base filled with copper shimmer and slightly larger glassfleck-like gold shimmer. Super Juiced is a neon indigo/dark periwinkle with gorgeous fuchsia shimmer. Summer Crush is a bright pink neon with lovely fine scattered holo, and So Coral is a neon orange-leaning coral jelly!

L to R: Pink Mimosa, Money Bin, Shoreline, Kaleidoscope, Cameo

The three farthest to the left here are new glitter/holo polishes in the vein of Happily Ever After & Fame, which were released this Spring! Kaleidoscope is a beautiful rainbow flakie that has shift similar to Neon Rosebud (plus extra blue and aqua shifty flakes), and Cameo is a brand new, very shifty, Ultra Chrome!

Some macro for you!

^That's like my polish in a bottle right there! *dies*

On to the ten new Ultra Holos!

Barbra has provided us with a veritable rainbow to choose from! And, I have to say that I am particularly stoked about these because I've never actually tried the ILNP Ultra Holo finish before!

L to R: Float On, Harbor Island, Ten Fold, 1Up, I See You

You can seea preview of Float On used in nail art with Mega (X) here, if you missed that! Harbor Island is a killer jewel-toned teal- look! Ten Fold is a pretty unique green in my book, as well! I See You has a humorously creepy name (LOL!), but I've been wearing it for a couple days on my non-swatching hand and it's a lovely neutral with a stunning holo twist!

L to R: Closure, Paige, Walking Home, Honor Roll, Missed Calls

Closure looks warmer-toned in the bottle than it does on the nail, very beautiful though! I can't decide which of Walking Home and Honor Roll I prefer- both are gorgeous and deep, but still Summery! And, of course, there's Missed Calls, the Ultra Holo black that can be worn with anything! The holographic effect in that one is particularly contrasty with the base!

  7. Yay! I'm pretty stoked to swatch the Summer polishes, and I can't decide which holo to put on my toes. Difficult Decisions!
