ILNP Fall 2014: Abundance

August 21st, 2014 | Posted by Mari in Nail Polish Swatches - (5 Comments)

Yesterday was a happy day! I got the new ILNP Fall 2014 collection that includes 11 holo and chrome nail polishes :) It wasn’t easy to decide which color to wear and swatch first, as all of them looked beautiful. Finally I chose a true fall shade called Abundance, mostly because it goes well with one of my scarves that is perfect for this summer-to-fall time (and I was wearing it today). The scarf plays background role, and here’s Abundance:

It all started with the idea of a simple nude manicure decorated with white horizontal stripes. Nothing more, nothing less… and here’s what I ended up wearing:

Yet another nail look inspired by fashion :) and this time by “fashion” I mean an Elie Saab dress from their Spring collection that dates back to 2011.

Colors by Llarowe Young Turks

Young Turks is a perfect example of the fact that some nail polishes should be left alone. I often add nail art when I do swatches, but today’s polish doesn’t need any “decorations” as it’s stunning on its own!

As the title says, today’s nail look was inspired by a Dior dress. I liked the classic color combination used on the dress, and I thought the colors will look bright and summer-y together on my nails :)

The 3rd manicure from the Fashion inspired nails series I started last week. Today it’s Carolina Herrera dress from their Fall 2013 collection.

As I promised I’m continuing with fashion inspired nail designs. Today I’d love to show you a french manicure inspired by a Chanel lace dress with fur add-ons from their Resort 2012 collection.

I’ve been spotting many fashion inspired nail designs lately, and to be in trend so to say, I did a few “fashionable” manicures :) Today I’ll show you the first one inspired by a short doll-like Moschino dress from their Spring 2013 collection.

I got this mysterious Dance Legend nail polish for review a while back. Why it’s a mystery? Because the bottle has no codes or names written on it.
