I Guess The Poke's On Me! Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Poke


Poke is a red-based, bright (yet deep), violet-purple grape with shimmers.

 Natural light.

I ADORE Illamasqua nail varnishes, but I have to confess that I was underwhelmed with Poke. I love the color, but when it dries down, it's dull and lifeless. You need a mega shine top coat to revive this polish! 

With flash. 

Even though the finish is disappointing, I really like the color, so, I'll make it work.  

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.

    I like Poke a lot! As I always use some kind of quick drying topcoat, I had actually never noticed that it's dull when it dries. You're absolutely right though - I just applied it now. Another happy purple Illamasqua shade which I love is Jo mina.

    1. Jo Mina is GORGEOUS! Love that shade! The dull finish annoys me so, that can't use it without a top coat...Shame on Poke's formula! Illamasqua polishes are some of my favorites!

  2. I agree, the finish is kind of dull for an Illamasqua polish. =\
