My hands are not steady enough to create cute Easter nail art but I have got an easier alternative for the occasion. Illamasqua have created a new range of cosmetics for their I’mperfection Spring 2013 collection
, and these lovely bottled of speckled beauties are part of it. Here I am wearing Mottle
* which is a beautiful mint green nail polish with flecks of small and big pieces of dark glitter. It’s not really glitter as it doesn’t sparkle but we’ll leave the fun and shiny sparkles for Christmas time! I am a bit late to the speckled party but I have been admiring these from other beauty blogs so as soon as these arrived through the post, I couldn’t wait to try it and they really are perfectly lovely for Easter as they remind everyone of Mini Eggs. I’m wearing two coats here but could do with a third to build the texture up more. I will also try it as a single top coat over my favourite pastel green so it just adds a little something extra to it. Other shades available are Freckle (brown), Fragile (blue), Speckle (purple) and Scarce (pink). Each bottle retails at £14.50.
I am a huge fan of this shade of mint green and have got a few other ones from different brands. I think it makes a great colour for Spring, when it eventually decides to come round, that is! Although, it looks like we’ll be waiting a couple more weeks, yet! I have always heard so much good things about Illamasqua as a brand and it sure is a big hit within beauty blogging. I guess that when it’s not one of those brands that are “easily accessible” (and by that, I mean it’s not available in Boots or Superdrug) that I tend to forget about it until I read about it on blogs. I’ve swatched things a couple of times when I’m out shopping but this is first time I have properly tried Illamasqua products and the first experience is a good one, I am itching to make a beeline for their counter next time I’m out and purchase something! Are you a fan of Illamasqua
? What one thing from their brand would you recommend? I will add it to my wish list!
