I have not managed to buy these polishes for myself but my amazing friend Fi bought them and then went on holiday before she could get a chance to use them, so of course I offered to polish sit for her.....
These are my first Illamasqua polishes and I was so happy to try them eventually, the bottle is an amazing design, and looks like it will be very storage friendly for when I finally buy some. The application was great and the cap on this polish was slightly rubberised to mirror the finish of the polish inside.
This is 1 coat of the Knight, 2 of Vice and no top coat.
I love this polish, the finish of this reminds me of candle wax.
Now........ I had been thinking about how the flakies would look matte, I had seen pictures of this before and it looked great so I had to try it for myself. I had quickly swatched 2010 over this polish when Fi came over with them and it looked ideal so here is the above mani with 1 coat of Nubar 2010 and then topped with 1 coat of Kleancolor Madly Matte, which I had used before to produce a more rubbery finish than a standard matte top coat.
The 2010 on top of this polish still shows different colours but leans more towards showing the orange and the yellow flashes.
Thanks for looking <3 xx
