ILNP – Showtime

Let’s talk vampy holographic nail polish!

ILNP describes Showtime as:

Showtime is a lavishly rich holographic nail polish with a deliciously deep and raspberry finish.

Showtime was specifically formulated to have an extremely saturated and juicy feel to it. It almost looks wet most of the time!

Perfectly accented with assorted sizes of holographic pigments and super vibrant red shimmer for extra sparkle and depth, Showtime will look amazing on your nails in any type of lighting!

Fully opaque in 2 to 3 coats!

I’m not exactly sure what they mean by this polish looking wet. It does have a strong scattered holographic sparkle that reads almost like holographic glitter albeit very fine holographic glitter. It’s a lovely deep berry shade.

The photos above are 3 coats of Showtime over OPI Nail Envy and topped with Seche Vite.

Showtime applied very well, dried quickly and wore for four days before showing tip wear. I didn’t experience any chipping with this polish.

Here is a side by side comparison of Diablo and Showtime since they’re somewhat similar shades:

Showtime is from the 2015 Winter collection and retails for $10.00 on the ILNP website.

What are you wearing on your nails? I’m seeing so many posts with Spring colors but I’m still really digging the darker winter and fall shades of makeup and nail polish. Obviously. Although…I always love dark shades so maybe that isn’t really saying anything.


  • My brothers left to go back home on Wednesday and my house is quiet now and it’s totally bumming me out. 
  • I’ve been binge watching makeup videos on YouTube the last couple of days and it’s been really fun!

  1. Oooh I can’t tell if I like Diablo or Showtime better! The holographic glitter looks more apparent with Showtime though I think. I’ve never heard of ILNP until your blog… and now I want! πŸ˜‹
    I’m wearing Essie Cabana Boy from the Retro Revival collection, it’s a soft greyish white with a teeny tiny bit of lilac. I’m really enjoying it! I’ve been on a grey kick lately.
    What kinds of YT videos are you watching? Makeup ones? Do share!

    1. I can’t decide between the two either! But you’re right, the holo in Showtime IS stronger. All in all I’m glad to have them both πŸ™‚
      Man, I wanted Cabana Boy but it was sold out in our local shops. It looks so pretty though!
      I binge watched all of Tarababyz videos (, she might be my favorite youtuber really. I also watched a whole bunch of Jeffree Star’s videos ( and I still can’t decide if I love him or find him irritating. I think i might love him though. Oh! And EmilyNoel! She’s so classy and nice! I need to compile a list of some of my favorite youtubers. Do you have any good recommendations? I can see myself wasting away my weekend on youtube πŸ™‚

      1. Oh yes, Tarababyz, the ultimate lemming creator! That girl’s collection is out of this world!
        EmilyNoel is great, I’ve been watching her for a long time. I really trust her reviews.
        I’ve not watched Jefree Star but I’ve heard of him. He has his own makeup line, right?
        Off the top of my head, I like Tati, ItsKeerstin, Leighannsays, Letzmakeup, Sharon Ferrell… I’ll list more when I think of more!

      2. Im totally in awe of Tarababyz collection. Im more amazed by how often she actually uses up products.
        Jeffree Star does have his own makeup line. Right now I think it’s just liquid lipstick but he might be expanding into other products later this year.
        I’ve never heard of ItsKeerstin or Sharon Ferrell so I’ll have to check them out, thanks!
