400 Blows...More Like 400 Coats! Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Blow


Hey guys!

Sorry for not posting these last few days, but you know how it goes...busy, busy busy!

Indoors in natural lighting.

On Thursday,  I painted my nails with blow, one of my newest Illamasqua nail varnish additions. Blow is a creamy pastel lemon yellow. I love Illamasqua polishes, and I've always praised them for their top quality and brilliant performance...but blow has to be the first varnish to disappoint.

With flash.

Blow's formula is extremely thick and a little goopy. Application was painstakingly difficult and frustrating. After two coats, I still had streaks, four coats took care of all streaks, but now I had to deal with bold spots. I had to apply six coats in order to achieve opacity. 

I love the color of blow, but boy do I hate applying it! I'm so glad I paid £7.50, instead of the retail price of £13.50. I probably would have felt somewhat disgusted with myself if I had paid full price. Ironically, Blow definitely lived up to its name and did just that : (

What is your favorite yellow nail polishes?

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.

    1. Hahaha, I knew you'd find it funny :P The end result is pretty, but I'm cursing myself during application >:(
