Illamasqua Gothiqua

Well. I bought this because of an amazing bottle shot. Whomp whomp. It does not have the same wicked shimmer on the nail as it does in the bottle. That being said, it is still a really beautiful vampy purple. The shimmer does lend extra dimension to the polish. This is a Canadian exclusive Illamasqua polish sold only at the Bay, or Hudson's Bay as they like to be called now because they fancy all of a sudden.

This is 2 coats outdoors in overcast Vancouver weather. At one coat you can see the shimmer a lot more, and the polish is more of a red toned purple. I want to try this layered over top of a purple jelly or something at some point. The weather today is too shit to justify this at this particular juncture though. Nice hair there Pinky Finger.


Sorry this picture is blurry, but it is the best indoor lighting picture I took.

  1. That's lovely! I'd buy that colour if they release it in the UK :D

  2. I'd buy it for the name, but I understand why you would want to layer blue glitter on it lol!

    1. #1 give me glitter or give me death.
      #2 It happened to be on the counter, untried and preferably layered over something darkish.
