In March this year, Illamasqua held a nail polish competition. The objective was to design their perfect nail polish, Im sure we've all had a colour in mind that we never seem to find, for 3 lucky winners, their dream polish came true.
With over 6000 entries, Illamaqua and a team of beauty experts, chose 3 winners.
The winning shades were:
Eclipse: a deep blue purple with grey undertones, reflecting the lunar eclipse
Shrapnel: Pink based metallic copper, reflecting a shiny new copper
Raindrops: Light creamy grey with a sheer hint of silver glimmer, like a raindrop..
I was lucky enough to be sent two of the winning polishes by Illamasqua. Here I have Eclipse and Raindrops.
Both shades are gorgeous, however they do differ in colour pay off. Eclipse takes only one coat to achieve the above finish, were raindrops take 3 coats to achieve the finish above, however I think it still looks slightly streaky.
Eclipse is soooooo gorgeous and unique that Iv just whipped it on for the weekend!
