Hello, beauties! Happy Friday. Quick Nail of The Day post for you today. Illamasqua Raindrops ($17) is a nail polish I had wanted for ages. After finally getting my hands on it, I’m feeling a bit underwhelmed. It looks stunning on the bottle and in other bloggers’ swatches, but on my nails it’s pretty bleh. It might be due to the fact that it’s time to throw out the base coat I’ve been using for the past year. Yet, I haven’t had any problems with my other nail polishes.
Formula-wise, Raindrops is pretty solid. Illamasqua nail polishes resist chipping and wear well. This color just doesn’t have the wow factor I thought it would. I do get compliments on the shade, but the speckles are not noticeable enough for my tastes. It also looks much goopier on my nails than in other swatches. Are they selling old bottles of this now? I’ve noticed it getting low reviews at Sephora.com.
Let me know what you think! Also, what polish are you wearing on your nails right now?
