Illamasqua “Propaganda”

Propaganda by Illamasqua is an absolutely beautiful, very dark teal blue.  This polish applies really well but definitely needs two coats for full coverage.  After two coats, it turns into the most glossy, extremely dark teal.

I’ve also used Essie First Base and Essie Good To Go base and top coats.  I get the feeling that this polish would stain terribly without a good base coat underneath.

Illamasqua Propaganda just speaks for itself.  It’s totally stunning and definitely one of my favourite dark blue polishes 😀


Illamasqua “Velocity”

I think I’ve finally found the most perfect colour for me 😀

This is “Velocity” by Illamasqua

I love this polish so much!  It’s a dream to apply.  One coat gave very good coverage and if you were in a hurry, it would suffice but I always apply two coats as a matter of course.  This polish dries extremely fast so adding another layer doesn’t take long anyway!  I’ve also used Essie First Base and Essie Good To Go base and top coats.

Velocity is a mid plum/lavendar with a grey base and  would suit almost all skin tones.

The bottle is a generous 15ml and I like the square shape as it’s so easy to hold for the camera lol.

This colour and a few others are currently available here in the UK at Debenhams at only £5.99 instead of the usual £13.50  Maybe I should have bought more than one 😀
