Illamasqua - Fragile

Hi followers!

Today I have a swatch from the first Illamasqua that I have owed in Fragile, one of those lovely speckled polishes. I've had my eyes on these for a while and treat myself too a couple ;)

Fragile is a lovely baby blue base packed with different sizes of black hexes. The effect looks just like Cadbury's mini eggs you get at Easter yum!

This was 2 coats, that went on smooth and dried fast, I didn't need to fish bits of glitter out or move it around, just left it were it lay. 

Enjoy! x

Seventeen - Bijoux Baby

Hello! An update for me, I took quite a while off but I'm back now. 

Recently while out and about I noticed the Seventeen Rock Hard Couture nail effects on a stand, there were 3 colours in stock and I chose the Pink one to try as it appealed to me the most in the bottle.

The colour is a beautiful pale pink packed with gold glitter and when it dries I was surprised that the polish was like an OPI Liquid Sand. I really love textured polishes and I love this one. 

This is 2  coats of the polish which is called Bijoux Baby, it applied smoothly.

Enjoy! x
