I mentioned previously that ILNP released two summer collections this year. From The Summer 2016 Collection I managed to show some restraint and only bought one shade. Not so much restraint was shown with the 2016 Summer Shimmers Collection. I might have purchased all but one shade. Maybe. So the first shade that we’ll look at from this collection is Wallflower.
From the ILNP website:
Wallflower is an amazing periwinkle-purple shimmer polish that’s just so right!
The teal shimmers in Wallflower really bring out the blue hue of this shade in direct light but look close and you’ll also notice the curves of your nails still show off the wonderful purple hue! Delicate but complex, Wallflower is perfect for anyone looking for something soft and unique!
The semi-translucent, jelly-leaning formula of our shimmer polishes allows for maximum balance, depth, and effect payoff. Great on their own or paired with your favorite base colors, the versatility of our shimmers is sure to keep you busy discovering new and beautiful finishes!
Fully opaque in 3 to 4 coats.
I have to say that this isn’t my favorite shade in the collection. Don’t get me wrong, it’s pretty but it doesn’t really wow me. I think I was expecting something a little bit more purple. Honestly I feel like I should love it and I’m not quite sure why I don’t.
The photos above are three coats of Wallflower over OPI Nail Envy and topped with Seche Vite top coat. The ring finger does have a coat of Valentina over it.
Wallflower did wear well with no real wear showing after a week.

It’s so pretty ! My kind of blue💙💙💙
It is a very YOU color! 🙂
The shimmer makes this less boring but yeah, I guess I expected something that packs a bigger punch from ILNP. I like the effect you got on the ring finger with Valentina over it.
I completely agree with you. It’s pretty but not particularly interesting. I’m looking forward to playing around with Valentina to see how it transforms other “meh” shades!
This is a nice colour of periwinkle, although it looks more of a special shade with Valentina on top. It’s one of those polishes that look more unique in the bottle than on the fingers – but still pretty nonetheless!
Exactly! I think I would love it more if it looked the same in the bottle as it does on the fingers. I had false expectations 🙂
Definitely a periwinkle! I would most likely layer this polish over top of something else to help it stand out!
That’s a good idea! Since it’s a jelly it might actually do really lovely things over other polishes. Thanks for the recommendation!
It’s gorgeous, that glitter makes is so glamorous!
Glitter always makes everything better and more glamorous! 😀
Yes indeed! ❤️
