"Don't Trample My Roses"

"Old Gregg"

"Golden Orchid"

"What The Funk"

"Bohemian Peacock"

Thanks! Love ya!

Finally! The new ILNP shop is LIVE!


The brand spanking new ILNP shop is online now at Please head over and take a look, I'd really like some feedback if you have the time. Click around, let me know what you think :)

So much work was put into this site, I don't even know where to begin. There are all new product photos for every ILNP polish (including macros) and I'm still finishing up 3 color nail swatches for each of the polishes. Once that's out of the way I can finally move on to more fun things!

I have about 10 new polishes to release including a spring collection... I'm excited! :)

As far as my Etsy shop (, I have no plans to close it as I love the Etsy community and everything they've done for me by supporting me and my brand. I'll likely keep both shops open for as long as I can... it can't be that hard :)

We're going to be advertising the new shop more which is pretty exciting, so if you have a nail blog or vlog that gets a lot of unique visitors everyday -- send an email to me barbra -at-!

Stay tuned for more exciting news :P

Bye!! ♥

NOTD: Pastel Half Moon Mani & New Camera!

Hey you guys!! How have you all been?! Me, well I have been busy like crazy! As some of you may know, I recently released my Valentine's Day collection and now I am working on my Spring collection!
While I was coming up with some concoctions, I got inspired to do a pastel mani!

This was my first time doing a half moon mani, but I like it :) I used OPI Pink Friday, China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint ( though I think I got a bad bottle because it doesn't look like my other bottle of Re-Fresh Mint) and finally Essie Nice is Nice.

Also!! I got a new camera! A Nikon D600 with a 60mm lens :) I posted a picture on Instagram last night because I was so excited! hehe. So look forward to better pictures and new polishes!!

Thanks everyone!! ♥ ya ;)

Peekaboo! Ultra Minis coming along...

Here's another sneak peek at the progress of the new ILNP Ultra Minis!

Excuse the funky photography! I was in a rush and didn't pay much attention to the lighting.

Still working a few things out and waiting for some stuff to be delivered (wrappers, more bottles, etc.) but we're definitely making progress!!

As you can see, even the Ultra Mini bottles have the same rubberized caps that you're used to. You can't see them here but I'm also using the same style of wide brushes that I use in full-sized bottles.

I know a few were wondering if the 3ml size is actually enough polish for their manis. Let me just say that I'm 100% positive you'll be able to get at least a few manis out of it. I've tested over and over -- even with very dense glitter bombs and multiple coats.

I've made sure to call these Ultra Minis because they're smaller than standard minis (which are usually about 5ml).

They're the perfect size to get familiar with, and fall in love with select ILNP polishes before splurging on a full-sized bottle.

Hope you're loving 'em so far!! :)

A sneak peek at something new...

Hi everyone!

I wanted to share a sneak peek of something with you I've been working hard on getting just right...

ILNP Ultra Mini polishes!!

If everything goes as planned, the Ultra Mini's should be available within the next 2 to 3 weeks! I'm still waiting for a few things to get here.

Each Ultra Mini will contain 3ml of fantabulous ILNP nail polish -- enough for a few (or more) manis depending on how generous you are with your applications.

The bottles will sport a wide brush, rubberized cap, and same overall quality that you're all used to.

I'm super excited to release these to the public. You guys have no idea! I haven't figured out the exact pricing yet, but they'll be in $3.00 range; perfect for those curious about an ILNP polish but not ready to commit to a full-sized bottle.

I'll be sure to share more details and photos once they're ready to go :)

Please tell me what you think!

New Year's Eve Nails!

Hey everyone!! Here I thought I would share two of my mani's I did using the New Years Collection!

My first mani is a reverse glitter gradient, which I just love! I used ILNP's All Gold Everything over OPI's   Honk If You Love OPI  **Honk Honk**

My second mani is ILNP's 11:59 over OPI's French Quarter For Your Thoughts. I thought this was a perfect color combo for NYE. It has all the right colors to go with that shimmery black dress and gold accessories :)

Well what do you guys think?! Any plans for New Year's? What will be on your lovely nails? Okay Okay, enough with the questions ;)

♥ Thanks everyone!

NOTD: A Random Mani!

Hey Everyone! How are you all doing? Getting ready for the holidays? It sure seems like it's coming up quick this time, I haven't even gone Christmas shopping yet! I'll tell you what I have been doing though... my nails! hehe

Here's a random mani of mine I did a couple of days ago. I needed to do some more cleaning around the edges but ran out of nail polish remover! What? How in the hek?! I know I know, crazy. I had to do an Amazon order for my Zoya Remove +. What polish remover do you guys use?

For this mani I used: China Glaze Exotic Encounters, OPI Mrs. O'Learys BBQ, OPI Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh? (on our FB page I put OPI Berlin There Done That, wrong color, oops)  ILNP Little Mermaid and Color Club Matte-ified.

What do you guys think?! What's on your nails?

Holy Macaroni!

Hello fellow lacqueristas!

The last week has been crazy! I definitely was not prepared for the type of response that my Black Friday / weekend sale generated. I've been staying up late (4am "late") every night this week filling orders and am just about caught up!

Rest assured all of the goodies ordered during the sale & this week will go out by Monday or Tuesday at the latest!

Thank you all so much for being patient with me. Next time I'll be better prepared.

On side note, I know a lot of you have expressed interest in minis and I've been listening! I don't want to promise a specific date they'll be available, but I'm working on it... and they're going to be so cute you'll want to eat them!

I'll keep you all posted on my progress... I've got some really cool stuff in the works (not just the minis) that I'm sure you all are going to love but I can't say anything about it just yet!!

Stay tuned :P
