ILNP Haul and First Impressions

Hey all I am here with another ILNP Haul.  Seriously.  I have a problem with these polishes.  I am seriously addicted!  The people that created these have a direct line to my heart.  These polishes are just amazing.  I absolutely love them!

I recently picked up four new ones, all from the summer collections.  And I am in the process of placing another order.

Closure

The first of the latest colors that I have picked up is Closure.  This is a beautiful strawberry red holographic polish.  The formula is perfect.  Smooth and easy to work with.  This is a thicker formula than I usually get from their polishes, but it is so easy to work with.  Two coats and it is completely opaque.  You will need a topcoat, it dries a little dull, but worth it.  Amazing and unique color.  The only other red holographic I own is more of a dark brick red.  This is perfect for the summer!

DSCN1796This next one is Super Juiced.  Extremely unique to my collection This is a purple crelly polish with a pink duo-chrome shimmer running through it.  Opaque in two to three coats.  You will need a top coat as it dries almost matte, like a neon polish.  This formula is a tad on the thin side, it wants to run into my cuticles when I have too much on the brush.  Beautiful polish.   A must have!

Honor Roll

Next is Honor Roll.  This is a gorgeous inky blue holographic polish.  Opaque in two easy coats with a fabulous formula.  I have one other polish that is like this and that is from FUN Lacquer.  A great polish for that statement nail look in the summer.

Walking HomeLast but not least is Walking Home.  If you own Color Club’s Eternal Beauty, you don’t need this one.  I do have to say that I like this one more than Color Clubs, the purple is more vibrant in Walking Home.  Two coats and its completely opaque.  You will need a top coat for this one and Honor Roll as it dries a little dull.  The holo in these polishes is just amazing.  These photos were taken inside and no flash, this is just the lighting that I have available in my room.

I am as always, extremely impressed with ILNP, I preordered these on June 12 and got them in the mail on the 29th.  These have been restocked as of July 3rd, so get them while they are still available.  They are incredible reasonable on their prices.  And the shipping is really fast.  I am in love with this brand of polish.  If I had to get rid of all of my polishes and only keep one brand, this would be the one.

If you have purchased any polishes from the ILNP brand let me know which ones you got and what your thoughts are on them.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year

So its official.  We are in the holiday season and with just under three weeks until christmas, I have absolutely no idea what to get anyone for christmas….grrrr.  Welcome to the holiday season right?  My father needs a new remote for his tv because my brother broke his, but because he is being a stickler on it, I have decided to get him that for christmas, not that he reads this anyway.  And Dad, if you are, you are now aware of your christmas present…Surprise!

My brother, not a freaking clue.  I have an idea of what I want to give him but he wouldn’t stand for it.  So the problem is I usually prefer getting someone something that I know they are going to actually use, but my brother will use it for a month and it will end up somewhere in the endless whole of a dump that is his room (although I just cleaned it so it’s actually not that bad at the moment).  My sister is finally just getting into makeup and such so there is that possibility, but she gave me a list of things that she is always up for, and since she reads this, I’m not saying anymore.  Haha sis!

And of course there is the people who I work with that I need to consider.  I think I am going to do christmas cards for my Child Watch staff, the same for Aquatics.  The directors and supervisory staff that I work for I think I want to do something a little more involved.  And before you get all buttkisser on me, no I am not doing it for that reason.  I am doing it because this is another year that I got to be employed and doing something close to my heart, and as a thank you I want to get them something a little extra…everyone loves Bath and Body Works right?

okay so maybe I do kind of have my ducks in a row, but still.  Just because I have a list, doesn’t actually mean that I have bought any of it!

oh, and the weather, first we were going to get a wintery mix monday day, then it was supposed to go south of us, and we still got it, but no one was expecting it to be over night, and not sleet.  I broke my ice scraper yesterday morning and was late into work because if the weather… and the roads, terrible at 5 am, but I can’t totally blame the road crews because the entire area wasn’t expecting what we got.

On the plus side though, our home improvement is slowly coming to a finish.  We have officially finished the basement and we are attempting to finish the kitchen before we move on to the upstairs bathroom.  We bought a stove and hood range for the kitchen yesterday and will be getting those saturday and installed.  YAY.  it’s about time, seriously.  the oven door doesn’t close anymore, the hood range doesn’t work at all. and its so outdated.  So excited for that!  then to work on the backsplash and wallpaper.  So that is my life.  How is yours going so far this week?
