ILNP Close Knit

Here's another fabulous fall 2017 color: ILNP Close Knit. Below are some shots in indirect and direct sunlight, two coats with Sally Hansen Miracle Gel top coat. Close Knit is hard to describe. It's kind of a neutral dusty, mauve-y pink, and under all the holo sparkle, it also looks like it's got a... Continue Reading →


ILNP Salem & ILNP Supernova

It’s starting to edge toward spring, but I’m still enjoying my winter 2017 polishes. :] This is ILNP Salem, three coats, except for four coats ILNP Supernova on the ring finger, plus Supernova dabbed in an ombré effect over the tip of the middle finger, all topped with Sally Hansen Miracle Gel top coat. Salem... Continue Reading →

ILNP Art District

(Then they sent me a 25% off coupon because I’d registered and never bought anything, and I was galvanized to action. Took me long... Continue Reading →

LynBDesigns Oh Captain, My Captain

I had LynBDesigns Oh Captain, My Captain sitting around in my stash for a long time, and I have no idea why I'd forgotten to wear it until now! (This polish is from the October 2014 Spark of Madness collection inspired by Robin Williams.) As usual, two thin coats, topped with Essie Good to Go top coat,... Continue Reading →
