Illamasqua Speckle

Happy Friday! Today I felt like pulling an oldie - dusty if you will. This is Illamasqua Speckle, a lilac jelly with various sized black glitter. I was OBSESSED with this type of polish when it first came out in 2013 and bought every color. And then like a true addict, it's sat on my shelf just looking pretty. ^_^

I used a base of Duri Rejuvacote, 3 thin coats of polish and finished with KBShimmer Clearly On Top. This polish was a little thin for me on the first coat, and while the second one was better, I felt like I needed a third coat to finish it off. The black glitter can get a little buried by the polish but it's still a great look on the nails.

I ended up wearing this as a full manicure to work. It's one of the more bold looks I've tried at work since I normally end up wearing just cremes or the occasional holo.

Did you ever buy any of these? Sadly, Sephora was the only place here in the USA that you could buy Illamasqua, but they have been removed from Sephora's line up. Now, you can purchase Illamasqua directly from their website with only a $7.50 shipping fee (which from England, is pretty fantastic). This polish has been discontinued.

Illamasqua [website | Facebook | Twitter | Google+ | Pinterest | Instagram | YouTube] is available through their website for around $18 a bottle.
