I honestly don't remember the last time I was this in love with a nail polish...
Mayyyyybe O.P.I.'s Black Cherry Chutney? Maybe.
In celebration of the glory that is my current manicure I figured a NOTD post was in order (I don't know why I suddenly feel the need to justify a NOTD post? Oy vey...). I originally 'hauled' this polish (I put it in quotes because the lovely Torey passed it on to me) in a YouTube video of mine a little over a month ago but only just got around to using it.
This is the first Illamasqua polish (and product!) that I have had the honor of using and I can't help it... my heart is smitten; blood, ventricle, and artery (too much? Meh).
I get butterflies every time I look at my muted neon grape nails and I'm assuming other people do as well because I have gotten HEAPS of compliments since applying this a couple days ago!
Jo'mina (does anyone know the proper pronunciation of this name? I feel like a fool when people ask me what color my nails are...) applies like butter on toast.
No, really; that's pretty much the most perfect analogy you've ever had the pleasure of reading.
It glides on without a hitch and melts perfectly into the edges of your nails, leaving behind a soft, even coat of polish.
Yup, you are actually literate/your screen played no tricks on you: This is ONE COAT of Jo'mina on my nails.
Well, except for my ring fingers but the other coat of polish is of Revlon's Whimsical and that was only because I was feeling a little snazzy.
I can't wait to get my hands on more Illamasqua polishes in the future (don't tell my bank account, I don't like seeing it cry); I've got my eyes on the speckle polish "Freckle" but sadly it's been sold out at Sephora every time I check (rat farts!!).
Have you tried Illamasqua nail polishes before?
Love 'em? Hate 'em?
What's the prettiest shade of purple polish you ever did see?
