I've been having a rough few days, don't have much in me left for blogging (I wouldn't expect too much from me anytime soon), but I had this post saved and it's one that I'm excited to post, so I figured I might as well post it...anyways...
Ahhh! I'm SO excited about this polish! It's my first Illamasqua. I adore it! I've been wearing it as a pedi for about a week and a half now (and still going strong!), but I put it on my nails now too, for my family Thanksgiving dinner a few days ago.
Baptiste is just GORGEOUS! This is two amazing coats with one coat of Seche Vite. Just look at it! It's so dark and vampy, yet vibrant and shimmery...you really need to look at these pics close-up. The red and blue shimmer in this is what makes the polish.
Like I said, application was great...for the polish, that is. I have to say, I'm not a huge fan of the square cap. First of all, it doesn't really line up right when you close the bottle, and it's just really awkward to hold while you're polishing. I kinda thought before I bought this that Illamasqua was like Chanel or Butter London, with the removable outter cap and then the smaller actual handle. Nevertheless, application was great. No streakiness or dragging whatsoever.
Seriously, I have such a love affair with dark colors right now...what's going on? Especially dark purples. Love em, love em, love em.
