Raindrops and Such

I recently ordered some Illamasqua polishes from the UK website. Last night I wanted to try out Raindrops.

Here it is at three coats.

Application was a breeze, although I did have a moment fearing that my stains would show through!

This is a soft gray with a pinch of blue. It's a jelly texture with small silver flakies and I believe teeny blue shimmer (can't seem to see it now, but I saw it when I was painting them).

Initially, I didn't think I was going to buy any of the three fan created Illamasqua polishes. Perhaps I was feeling bitter that my idea didn't get chosen. Perhaps I wasn't "wow-ed" by any of the shades.

I'll tell you what happened, though. I am mad about this brand of polish. And I kind of feel like I need them all. :) Well, almost all. There are maybe two or three that I don't own yet and one of them I have no plans of ever purchasing.

In any case, this goes nicely with the pastel theme I seem to be digging as of late.

I am trying out the Palladio quick dry top coat just for fun. It dried pretty quick and is nice and shiny. It also had a good, thin texture going on. I'll let you know what I think!

Time to run. I need to get ready for work. I would much rather not be working today!
