Little Speckled Eggs

ILLAMASQUA SPECKLE MINI EGGS AND SPECKLE
RAPID DRY AND ILLAMASQUA
ILLAMASQUA SPECKLE 2
After spotting the Illamasqua speckled finish nail polishes on a couple of beauty blogs, I couldn't resist any longer and popped into Selfridges after work and went straight to the Illamasqua counter. There are 5 colours available in pastel shades of purple, pink, green, blue and beige and after a lightning fast purchase, I hopped on the bus home so I could photograph the newest addition to my overflowing nail polish collection.

On the subject of nail polish, I have to mention OPI's Rapid Dry which is the best topcoat ever and my nails seem to stay chip free for ages - so a quick shout out to Sarah who recommended it to me ages ago on Twitter! This post was also a pretty good excuse to buy some mini eggs too as they are LITERALLY all I can think of when I see these polishes. I have to admit that after eating a handful of the mini eggs before I painted my nails, I half expected the nail polish to smell like chocolate. Alas, this is not the case but hey you guys at Illamsqua HQ - there is an idea for you!

  20. Wow, I loveee that color! I have to say, the color you got toally looks like those mini eggs!!!!hehehe I've not heard of this brand, for a sec i thought it was a Japanese brand in fact, lol.

    And yeah, maybe you can give your idea to Illamasqua HQ regarding nail polish smelling like mini chocolate eggs, lol


    I'll def look into that top coat cuz the ones i got lately are no good! I've used another one a few years ago and it was really good in terms of no chip! think it lasted for a week or so but then again, its main purpose is also no chip so go figure, lol but it cost like HK$200 or somthing..if you wanna check it out, here is the link
