Manicure Monday: Illamasqua ‘Scarce’

Hi everyone, so today I shall count as my first official day in nail polish heaven – I have entered the world of Illamasqua and I am enamoured!!!! I want to own every single item from this line now..can’t believe it has taken me THIS long to try their nail polishes and/or makeup! What was I thinking??? I have used a few samples of their products from Sephora but never owned an actual item until now!

Illamasqua ‘Scarce’ – is a nude-petal pink creme polish infused with heptagonal and micro dark navy blue ‘speckles’ throughout the polish. This is one of 5 “Speckled” nail polishes Illamasqua launched in the Spring 2013 and while I wanted to buy ALL of the at the time, I held back which baffles me why I did because this polish is stunning!

It was a DREAM to work with, opaque on two coats, dried within 5-7 minutes and it was SUPER EASY to work it!! I am very tempted to get more of these polishes, I have been depriving myself of such an amazing brand – the things I do to myself! lol. I love the unique “Robin’s Easter egg” effect and while it’s such a beautiful Spring polish – I chose this particular colour because I thought it would work best year round.

But now I am absolutely fascinated with the brand, so be sure to see A LOT more Illamasqua products coming your way. My friend Melissa over at Pink Lady Beauty & Horredous Colour has gushed about Illamasqua polishes for a long time now I know EXACTLY why she loves them so much!!! You guys DEFINITELY need to try some Illamasqua polishes – quite frankly I shall adding a TON more to my wishlist this Christmas!!!

And I seriously do NOT want to paint my nails anything other than this polish right now lol!
