I Love Nail Polish Swatches Part 2

Today I have some polishes from I Love Nail Polish (ILNP) from her Valentines Day collection for you. Erin posted Part 1 of this collection a few weeks ago here. All of the swatches below used OPI base coat and Out The Door top coat.

This is Strawberry Creme, a beautiful cream nail polish with a yummy collection of pink, fuchsia, and red circle glitters. I was able to reach full opacity with this milky jelly base in 3 coats. I had no issues with application or glitter placement at all. I love the different sized circles too!

Candy Gram is a super fun blizzard of white, red, turquoise, and black glitters- with a dash of white hearts. The swatches below show once coat of Candy Gram over the base colors. I wasn't able to get a heart glitter during this swatch over China Glaze-Mimosas Before Manis though. Bummer.

So I went back and tried again. This time over China Glaze-Keep Calm, Paint On. I got a heart! I did have to fish around a bit to get it though. But I like the different look Candy Gram gives over a different base. So versatile!

Pros- Even glitter placement with these 3 colors let me know that ILNP definitely puts out a well-tested, quality product. 

Cons- I Love Nail Polish smells bad. It smells exactly like Kleancolor, if you've tried their polish before. ILNP is made with a 3-free base so don't worry about the nasty chemicals. It's just stinky until it dries!

Overall- This was my first time trying ILNP and I'm pretty impressed! With so many indie nail polish lines out there, it's hard to know which ones to go for. I'll definitely be back for more! I like the original combos of glitter that aren't glitter bomb overloads. 

I Love Nail Polish is available on Etsy for $10.00 for a full size bottle.  Make sure to like the Facebook page for news, specials and updates!

  1. Really cute glitter. How do the little bits stay on? I haven't used glitter for ages because the little bits used to fall off. :(

    1. They definitely stay on well. Just make sure you use a nice thick, quick dry top coat like Seche Vite or Out The Door.
