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.
I find that Illamasqua polishes have an amazing formula. The polish is quite thick which means that I only have to use two coat to achieve full opacity; the pigmentation is also very strong. It dries faster than a normal polish, possibly because it's a rubber effect finish. I find that it lasts at least four to five days without any signs of chipping, and sooo much longer if I use a top coat.
It think that Sephora by OPI Sugar Plum Fairies Gone Wild goes perfect over the top of this.
Faux Pas is available to buy on the Illamasqua website, and at Illamasqua beauty counters, for the full retail price of £14.50.
