Illamasqua: Vice and Glitterati

Good evening lovelies

Can you believe it is Monday again already? Honestly, where does time go?

I have really been enjoying trying out some of my stunning new Illamasqua polishes so I thought I would continue that trend with my manicure of the day...

As you can see below I started by with two coats of Vice by Illamasqua. Vice is described as a deep cerise polish with a rubber finish. Vice leaned slightly more purple on my pictures than it actually looks in real life but the texture was fascinating... really rubbery :-)

On my ring finger I then added just one coat of Glitterati also by Illamasqua. Glitterati is a raspberry jelly base with a good mix of multi coloured hex glitters added in. I found that the colours I could see completely changed with the light, as did the base which was raspberry, burgandy or plum. Even though it was ever changing it was always very pretty.

The side scroll pattern is stamped from plate GA 33 using Barry M Gold Foil and I decided to angle it differently on each nail just to mix things up :-)

The below two pictures are taken with the forced flash on...

One final natural light picture.

I am really loving these Illamasqua polishes and am kicking myself that I didn't buy each and every colour in the January sale. At £13.50 each they are definitely out of my polish buying budget.
