Nail Of The Day: Illamasqua Nail Varnish in "Baptiste"

Happy Saturday!

I hope your weekend is off to a great start. I have finally kinda-sorta jumped on the Illamasqua band wagon. I made my first illamasqua purchase and I am super duper happy about this one. It is the fabulous Illamasqua nail varnish in Baptiste ($14.00). Babtiste is a beautiful deep purple color, thats so creamy and contains flecks of little purple shimmers. I have them on my nails, and it is gorgeous! I feel so fab.

Application wise, Illamasqua polishes apply smoothly and you get a great even color in just one coat! When I applied this polish, i used 2 coats, but you dont even need 2 coats because you get a great opaque look with just one. I am happy that there were no streaks, visible brush marks, and no air bubbles. And the drying time is really short as well.

Here are pics of the polish. I definetley recommend this illamasqua polish in Baptiste. This purple is great for fall. Very chick!

Also, when I was browsing the illamasqua isle in my local sephora store, I was really interested in their nail varnish polish in "phalic" which is a beautiful shimmery dark navy color. But I decided on getting "Baptiste"...but come to think of it, I think I am going to go back to Sephora and purchase Phalic. It's too cute to pass up! And navy polishes are another great color for fall.

Here is a nail swatch that I did when I tried Phalic on my nail at Sephora.
