Illamasqua swatches - silky and mesmerizing

Monday, May 21, 2012

I received my first Illamasqua polishes in the mail today and couldn't wait to swatch them.

Illamasqua is a relatively new brand - three years old. and to become such a sought after brand in just a short time is astonishing.  

I received the following polishes:

Untold: A rich red glitter polish. The glitter is a fine glitter that reminds me of the slippers Dorothy wore in the "Wizard of Oz." I can't wait to layer this heavenly glitter.

Poke: A phenomenal purple with shimmers of blue throughout. It almost has a deep lilac hue to it. 

Phallic: My favorite of the bunch. A deep majestic, navy blue. It has flashes of the most vibrant sapphire blue throughout.

These polishes went on oh so silky. I was amazed by the formula. Decent dry time and wonderful pigments. The glitter in the Untold polish went on smooth and even.

Needless to say, this polish is going to be a staple in my polish arsenal. Now, on to the photos! These are all two coats with no top coat.

Phallic - This inside photo makes it look almost black.

Phallic - In the photo in the sunlight you can see the sapphire shimmer

Poke - Wonderful shade of purple with blue shimmers

Untold - Ultrafine red glitter. I can't wait to layer this polish
