Do you know the feeling when you get inspired and immediately have to put an inspiration into action? This happened when I talked to the lovely Alex from Illamasqua about their nail polish Raindrops.
Raindrops has been on my wishlist since it came out and when Illamasqua had their Summer Sale I finally purchased it (and a backup :)). I already have worn Illamasqua Raindrops on its own but Alex wrote that she used it for a layering over a navy blue nail polish and liked it. Coincidentally I was already wearing a navy blue nail polish – ck Calvin Klein Navy Sparkle – on my nails. Calvin Klein’s makeup brand ck Calvin Klein is sadly discontinued but is often available at TK Maxx stores.
Illamasqua Raindrops is such a stunning nail polish and I love it. Layering with Raindrops can be tricky because its base is almost too opaque to layer with it. I had difficulties to get a nice and even look without streaks with using one coat so I had to add a second coat of Raindrops.
This was an unexpected layering and maybe it is even a bit out of my layering comfort zone because one layering nail polish is so opaque but I really love the finished look.
Do you have Illamasqua Raindrops and have you already tried to layer it?
Thanks for looking and have a great week! ♥
