Good morning folks! Have you heard of the brand I Love Nail Polish? It is sometimes shown as I <3 NP or I <3 Nail Polish. Today I'm sharing the I Love Nail Polish Winter Collection.
Christmas in Bordeaux is a fine glitter topper made up of red, green, and gold glitters. There are also some irregular goldish flakes, which you can probably see best on my middle finger. It was designed to be a refined Christmas glitter, and I think it definitely achieves that. I've shown one coat here over American Apparel Office.
Ginger Spice Latte is a copper and gold glitter mix in a clear base. It's fairly dense; you can see one coat below over Essie Yogaga. The polish in combination with its name definitely feels "spicy" to me, like I should be snacking on gingerbread cookies and cider. The glitters in this are small, so it isn't too in-your-face, but it does add a bit of warm sparkle to an otherwise plain manicure.
Once Upon a Starry Night is a glittery topcoat made up of dark blue and silver glitters, with star confetti glitters! The stars seemed small enough to work on my curvy nails which is a huge positive for me, and they were plentiful. I love the colors in this mix. Once Upon a Starry Night is shown here over American Apparel 7th and Alameda.
Something About Merry is a chunkier Christmas mix of green, red, and whites. In addition to the metallic greens, there are also translucent green glitters that make this one unique. I also love the red squares. I've shown it here over Essie Stylenomics.
Up to Snow Good is a tealy topper made of primarily white, translucent white, teal and aqua glitters. Again, I am loving the squares here, as well as the irregularly shaped white pieces. I've layered it over China Glaze Elephant Walk.
Babes In Toyland is a fun multicolor topper made of fuchsia, sea green, teal, and gold. The best part about this polish, in my opinion, is the inclusion of the small fuchsia circle glitters. I've not seen polish with circle glitters of this size; they are a really awesome and cute. I've shown it here layered over OPI Don't Touch My Tutu.
Of course, you guys know I had to add another layer of DTMTT over the glitter to see how Babes In Toyland looked sandwiched.
I was particularly impressed by the professionalism of this brand. Each polish comes in a gorgeous box (as shown below) and the polish labels, both front and bottom, are nicely designed and pleasing to the eye. The bottles feel hefty and the caps are rubberized. Each polish is 12ml and 3-free, though I should mention that they do smell a little different than most of the indies I've tried. Not better or worse, just different.
Overall I am really excited about this brand! I love the names of these polishes, and like I said above I was very impressed with the overall experience, including polish, packaging, application, presentation, etc.
