Purple mani and my first Illamasqua polish

Illamasqua Baptiste, China Glaze Marry A Millionare, Color Club Wild at Heart
(direct sunlight)

Hi, guys!  Today I want to show you a mani I did with a few different purple polishes.  Purple is my favorite color, but oddly enough, I don't own too many purple nail polishes.  I was so happy to have some purple nails after all my red, green, and gold holiday manis!

When Sephora sent out their $15 off email to Beauty Insiders back in December, I knew I wanted to get an Illamasqua polish.  I have heard so many raves for these.  I picked Baptiste, which you see 2 coats of on my pointer and middle fingers.  It is a gorgeous rich purple, and comes alive and seems to glow in the sunlight.  I am happy with the application of the polish, and will definitely be getting more polishes from Illamasqua.  

My thumb, ring finger, and pinkie all got 2 coats of Color Club Wild At Heart, a purple scattered holo.  Purple holo, what more could I ask for?  One day maybe I will get my hands on the linear purple holo from the China Glaze OMG collection.

On my ring finger I added one coat of China Glaze Marry A Millionare, a purple and green bar glitter from the Eye Candy collection.  This is my first bar glitter, and I like it, but I'm still unsure on if I am in love with bar glitters or not.

What is your favorite Illamasqua polish?  How do you feel about bar glitter?


  1. Pretties, this looks really good. As for bar glitters, I don't like them. They make me think of worms...

  2. sadly i dont own any illamasqua polishes yet but i plan too some day baptiste is beautiful though, i dont really like bar glitter it seems hairy to me but thats just me.
