Illamasqua Raindrops

Finally a post!!

Sorry I've been MIA, I've been away on a work trip to Chicago and then a little vacation in California to see family, I meant to organise some sceduled posts but time flew by and you know how it is.....

Anyway, I have had a nice little break and I have a TON of things to show you now I'm back. While I was away I totally meant to take pictures of my nails so I could post them when I got back, but you know what happened? I didn't take any pictures and I hardly had enough time to change my polish at all, it was kinda nice to have a little rest and just polish my nails for me without worrying about having to be perfect. Anyway, enough of that.... I've nubbinised my nails as one had a split so today I'm going to show you something I wore before going away, yes it is the infamous Illamasqua Raindrops!

I've been really on the fence about this polish. To be honest before it's re-release it really wasn't on my radar at all but as usual the hype made me want it. I went to Selfridges to check it out but they were sold out and by luck I got to borrow it from a dear polish friend and she allowed me to swatch it.

Illamasqua Raindrops is a pale grey jelly with tiny flakies, for this swatch I did 3 coats topped with a layer of HK girl. So, do I like it? Yes, it's very soft and delicate without being boring, do I love it? No, probably not, if it weren't for all the hype I probably would have overlooked it to be honest.

One thing I am excited for is the release of Illamasqua Pink Raindrops which should be happening very soon, now that I believe will be stunning. Make sure you keep an eye out on the Illamasqua facebook page for updates.

I'll be back on the weekend to hopefully show you some things from my recent USA Haul, until then, enjoy!

Thanks so much for commenting. I took off the annoying verification thing so I thought I better add some moderation to avoid spam messages, you know what the internet is like!

Anyway, it's great to get comments and I'll verify them as soon as they get to me.
