I was browsing the online sales on last week, picking up bits and bobs for my holiday, when I got bit by the 'makeup bug'. The only known cure is to splurge on products you don't need, but want to have. I would be the first to admit that I have a problem with regards to my shopping habit; although it makes me happy. If I hadn't 'stumbled' across the Illamasqua website and this lovely shade that's on my nails now.
I love the nail varnishes that I picked up from Illamasqua out of Tk Maxx that I decided that to go straight to the source. This means that I had to pay roughly three times the price, but the colour range is so much better. There were so many colours to pick from in the Illamasqua website that I will probably start treating myself to a nail varnish a month.
The shade I picked up is Fire Rose which was originally released back in early 2014 as part of the Glamour Collection. Illamasqua card this a 'shattered star' nail varnish which I suspect is due to their finish. Fire Rose (and I assume the other two polishes in the collection) have a rough textured finish. In terms of colour, it is a warm rosy pink that looks metallic, and it has tons of light pink micro shimmers and small glitter particles in it. It is a very girly nail varnish with the pink colour and the trillions of shimmery glitter; I love it! I found that one coat was enough to to fully cover the nails and make the varnish completely opaque; a second coat was added just out of personal preference.
How do you guys feel about textured polishes?
