Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Faux Pas

One of the three Illamasqua polishes that I picked up at TK Maxx for crazy cheap; like £3.99 cheap. How could I possibly say no!

It is a super gorgeous colour, both in the bottle and on the nails. It's a deep violet colour with a strong blue undertone to it. I wish that the photo showed the true colour; it appears far more blue than it actually is. It is so unique to any other polish I own as it has a rubber effect finish to it. It is almost matte but still has a very faint, subtle shine to it.

My Top Five Primers

Before I got all super into makeup, I had no idea what a makeup primer was. I had no clue; it seemed like such an 'extra' product that was not a necessity in my minimal kit. But I was wrong, so wrong. Primers have changed the way I use my makeup. I feel much better when out and about; that I don't have to be checking in the mirror every two seconds to see it I need a top up. A primer guarantees me a couple of hours before I even have to consider topping up.
