Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Pink Raindrops Review

Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Pink Raindrops £14.50

After a pathetic attempt at being good I folded after spying this nail varnish on Illamasqua's Instagram page. I'm certainly not short of nail varnish but I'm currently short of inspiration, be it being lack of time or the indecisive weather, I just haven't had a clue what to do with my nails. 

Pink Raindrops has been the solution, it's a gorgeous, flirty, iridescent, opaque, grey-mauve pink with a hint of glitter - it packs a lot into one colour. It's really pretty but light, it makes a perfect alternative to a nude shade as it works well with other colours. 

I applied two coats but one would actually be strong enough. The nail varnish was touch dry in fifteen minutes. It lasted four days without a top coat before it chipped which for me is pretty good going. It takes a bit of rubbing to remove, it isn't terrible but the glitter does mean it takes longer tan usual, there was a bit of glitter remaining but after washing my hands this was gone.

This is a gorgeous versatile shade that will be winging its way onto my toenail any day soon.
