ILNP Ocean Ave

Nothing To Disclose

If you've been watching my Facebook, you know that I've finally gotten all my polishes into Helmers, purged nearly half of what I owned, and I'm working on swatch sticks and wanting to get back into blogging. The other big news in my life is that I'm welcoming Boy #3 next Monday (woo!) and while I'm excited, it is starting all over with a new baby which can be stressful and what not. I had painted my nails this past weekend for the first time in months and remembered how much I love painting so this time, I picked ILNP Ocean Ave from the summer 2019 "The Boardwalk" collection. This is a cerulean blue with copper microflakes and a bit of holo microflakes for added touch.

I started with Morgan Taylor ReactMAX Optical Brightener, 3 thin coats of polish and finished with Glisten & Glow top coat. I probably could have gotten away with just 2 coats but it's super humid in my house right now and I was afraid two may not do it. The formula was thin with the first coat but did well with the second and third.

My nails have been through some heck and back. I still haven't found a new manicurist so I've just been chopping away at my own. I hope to change that in 2020 because I do miss my monthly manicure time. Also, you can see I'm a little shaky and got some polish on my cuticles but that's from being out of practice, not from the formula.

Overall, I'm pretty pleased with this polish. While I'm sure I'll change it again before having my little boy because of grow out reasons, it's not like I don't have more polishes to wear.
