Illamasqua Poke

I broke my no-buy this morning. This is the first year that I've really taken notice of Black Friday sales. Obviously it's a huge thing in America, but not so much over here. But thanks to the wonders of the internet, people all over the world can participate in the same sales! Unfortunately most of those sales took place while I was asleep, but I awoke to find everything on Beauty Bay at 20% off, so I splurged on some Nail Inc polishes. Did anyone else nab any Black Friday bargains?

Today I am wearing my first (and only) Illamasqua polish, a rich red-toned purple with a milky silver shimmer called Poke. I was lucky enough to pick this one up cheap in a blog sale, because although Illamasqua have recently lowered their prices, they still retail for $26 a bottle!

I love that against the red toned shade of purple, the silver shimmer looks almost blue. It becomes perfectly opaque in 2 coats, but it does dry a little dull so I would definitely recommend a top coat.

Illamasqua polishes are available at Myer and directly from their website. In fact, right now they have 20% off their entire range... Go forth and splurge!
