Illamasqua Raindrops

by - 12/27/2013

Santa was really good to me... I hope he was good to you as well! I hauled 13 polishes and a lot of beauty loot that I'll post about in the next couple of days. This particular polish was not from Santa, though... It was gifted to me by my fabulous favorite sister... I think I've mentioned her before? Well, in addition to a whole lotta Lush, she gifted me my first Illamasqua shade, and I can't waaaaaaaaaiiiiiit to get more!

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
4 Coat Illamasqua Raindrops
1 Coat Borghese Clear Coat
1 Coat Essie Good to Go

Illamasqua describes Raindrops as a sheer light gray with a jelly finish. It's a pretty blue-leaning gray that is packed with silver shimmer and spattered with extra small silver flakes. It took 4 coats to build up to the finish you see in the pics, but it was 4 coats well worth it. The jelly finish is super milky and squishy all at the same time! The formula of Raindrops is great, the brush is easy to work with, and the cap isn't awkward to hold.

Raindrops is such a gorgeous polish, one that I've wanted in my stash for a very, very long time! It definitely lives up to the lemming, too. There's nothing worse than a lemming letdown, and I'm so glad that this polish is just as beautiful on my nails as I thought it would be. Now about that pink version... :)

What do you think of Raindrops?
