Autumn manicure using ILNP Champagne Blush

Hello my fellow nail polish addicts, well the weekend is nearly officially over and I have to say I am absolutely exhausted. Yesterday was Lexi's birthday party and I am happy to say it went swimmingly, everyone had a great time and most importantly Lexi thoroughly enjoyed herself. So now that Minnie mouse is no longer constantly on my mind and I'm not trying to go over a huge check list in my mind I was able to finally try out some of my newly purchased nail polishes.

The nail polish I used for the manicure I'm going to show you is my first ILNP (I Love Nail Polish), and I have to say I was highly impressed with the formula of this gorgeous polish and how easy it was to apply. ILNP is a highly successful Indie polish that are based in Las Vegas, Nevada. They are vegan friendly, cruelty free and 3 free, they ship internationally and are also stocked at Rainbow Connection.. I will leave a link here to their direct site so you can go check out all the other beauties that they stock, I can tell you for sure this will not be my last ILNP.
I got this beauty in a recent grab bag that I brought from Hayley at Danglefoot nail polish, she was selling off some of her own personal collection and I couldn't pass up on the opportunity; after all who doesn't like surprise nail mail. When I brought my grab bag I also purchased two more of her Danglefoot mini polishes, I'm hoping to get a review of these up soon. I will leave a link here to my recent swatch and review of the polishes that she sent to me, I highly suggest checking those gorgeous polishes out before they are all gone.
Anyway lets get back to this gorgeous ILNP called Champagne Blush, this is a beautiful vintage rose pink holographic with a gorgeous golden tone. The formula was fantastic easily applied to the nail and opaque in two coats. 
Once this had dried I applied my Seche Vite top coat and then grabbed my Uber chic plate from collection 5. I have a full review on all these plates here if you wanted to go check it out, the plate I used for this mani was plate 2 as it has this beautiful autumn leaves stamping image.
I used Born Pretty Store gold stamping polish with my Moyou London stamper and scraper, the Born Pretty stamping polish is fantastic a very opaque bright gold. I stamped this image onto all of my nails and then top coated being careful not to smudge the design.
This is the finished look, I am quite happy with this Champagne Blush is a fantastic colour and great for this time of year and the gold stamping polish gives it that pop I was looking for. 

So there we have it my first Autumn inspired manicure, I find at this time of year I'm always reaching for my bright in your face polishes. Probably because I am missing those summery manicure's we all know and love. I would love to know what polishes you are reaching for this November. What are your autumn go to polishes? I was thinking about doing a full review for these Born Pretty Store stamping polishes, let me know if you would be interested in that in the comments below? 

As always I hope you are having a great nail day and I hope to see you all in the next post.

  1. Great post :) Champagne blush looks gorgeous, so delicate! And I love your choice of stamping. I'm feeling dark vampy purples this fall, although I've still been wearing some bright colours! x
