I have about 6 polishes from Illamasqua I found all of them in Tk Maxx Stores. And yes – I already used Poke. You can find the Blogpost here (only in german) It is official – I use polishes twice – maybe I just get sick :)
And because of current events – you can read about here I actually think about ordering some of their products, well we’ll see.
Anyway – today I have two of the polishes. One – how suprising a purple und a nice neon green.
Then we start with the first polish.
Illamasqua – Poke
Sure thing I didn’t skip the purple polish. Not only is it purple, no it also has a silver shimmer. And to be honest – I like silver better than gold. The brush is slim but the application was pretty easy and after two layers it was perfectly opaque.
You can see the silver shimmer pretty good in the bottle.
The silver shimmer is still visible on the nails – Usually the shimmer which is visible in the bottle is hiding on the nails – but not in this case. Yay.
Illamasqua – Nurture
Usually I am big with Holo and Multichrome but I have also a thing for Neon colors.
First of all as a hint – the polish dries matt. But in a strange Version of matt. Somewhere in between matt and some sort of waxy shine which I personally don’t like so I finish with a topcoat.
This one also has a slim brush and the application was a bit annoying. After two layers it was ok and the topcoat fixed some of the imperfections.
With Neon Polishes I love to use contrasting colors for stamping – also this is another option to hide some inperfections – or let’s call it ‘safe the mani’ if you understand what I mean. I not only separate garbage but I also recycle manicures :)
Stamping plate I used here is from Vivid Lacquer – VL002
Do you have any products from Illamasqua?
I think I have a pink lipgloss I had in a glossybox way back so I can’t say much about their other products.
