NOTD - Illamasqua Scarce

Today's nail polish is from Illamasqua's latest collection called I'mperfecton. (Click HERE for my post on their launch event). All the polishes in that new collection are speckled, i.e. they have tiny bits of black glitter which look beautiful against the soft pastel shades. The effect actually reminds me of Easter eggs, and yes it does make me crave chocolate Easter eggs (the ones covered with thin sugar coating....mmm)  

The one I'm wearing today is Scarce*, which is a soft speckled pink shade. I'm not one for nail art, so this is the next best thing in jazzing up an otherwise plain pastel shade.

The speckled polishes in the new collection are somewhat sheer so 3 coats is required to get an opaque effect. Or alternately you can wear it over a cream/white base. I'm wearing 2 coats over a cream base in these photos. 

What do you think of the speckled mani? Yay or nay?

  6. This is very unique and gorgeous! It reminds me of an egg. Really one of those polishes that look like you put extra special effort into the effect, but did not.

  8. I really like these types of nail polishes and the colours are so pretty. The only thing I don't like is how hard they are to remove usually
