Continuing the ILNP 2016 Summer Shimmers collection, we’re going to take a look at The Boulevard.
The Boulevard is an unusual shade choice for summer but I’m definitely digging it! I tend to favor dark nail colors in general so it’s fun to have an excuse to pull one out when it’s still 100 degrees outside.
From the ILNP website:
Time to walk that walk!
The Boulevard is a blue-leaning slate grey polish accented with the perfect combination of yellow gold and copper shimmers that come out to play in all types of lighting conditions! If you’re after a dark and sleek finish, go for a stroll on The Boulevard. We promise it will not let you down!
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 2 to 3 coats.
This is a perfect stormy gray with lots of fine coppery golden shimmers. It’s really lovely and my photos don’t really do it justice.
The above photos are three coats of The Boulevard over OPI Nail Envy and topped with Seche Vite top coat.
I have worn this polish all week and was actually unusually rough on my nails this week. Still…no chips! Barely even any tip wear. The ILNP formula has yet to disappoint me.

I love the shimmer / shift! You know what this reminds me of? The China Glaze Choo Choo Choose You, remember this:
I think the ILNP is greyer and may not have that green shift.
I dig it too!
You’re right, this IS veyr similar to Choo Choo Choose You. I think CCCY looks a little more sparkly in your photos and a bit more shifty. But still VERY similar! Which makes me feel better because I actually really wanted CCCY after seeing your photos lol. Now I know I don’t need it! 😀
Ooooh, LOVE this shade! The copper shimmer makes this a really interesting polish.
Me too! The copper shimmer is everything really. I like gray polish anyway, but you’re right, it adds such interest!
I never heard of this brand before but then again I’m not a nail polish pro !!!😋
I think they have very good quality nail polishes. I do think that their greatest strength is their duochrome line (if you like duo/multi-chromes then definitely check them out). They have fun shimmers and holographic polishes too but they aren’t quite as good as the duochromes 🙂
Thanks! I will have a look at their duochromes , that is if I can find the brand near Quebec 😃!!!
Stashy just mentioned that it’s available on nailpolishcanada.com! Actually she mentioned it a while ago, but I’m (obviously) really behind on blog correspondence 🙂
Another beautiful one from ILNP! I’ve never tried anything from them!
I was just telling Ingrid that ILNP’s real strength is their duo/multi-chromes. If you ever decide to try something from the brand DEFINITELY look into the duochrome line. Everything else is great quality but not as amazeballs as the duos 🙂
Duochromes are so beautiful!
They really are 🙂
Wow, that’s beautiful.
It really is! I love gray shades though 🙂
