Illamasqua Speckled Collection - Fragile Swatch

So, I know I've been terrible and haven't posted in a few days. tsk tsk.

HOWEVER, I would like to thank everyone who's helped get me to over 1,000 pageviews! You've been tremendously supportive and I love that I get requests and questions from all of you, so keep it coming!

As for today's swatch, I went and splurged on Illamasqua's "Fragile" from their 'Speckled' Collection. This is one of spring's BIG trends, you see this in all the magazines nowadays, especially with this brand and Deborah Lippman as the front runners. I picked this one up since it was A. the only one unavailable on the website and B. because it looks like a robin's egg! It also comes in a purple, a green, and a tan/beige, all pastel of course. It's amazing what some black flat glitters can do! This one has tiny black micros with some small round ones. The formula on this was real smooth, the layers were thin but dried quick.

I did 3 coats, with the Sephora by OPI Matte top coat. I did like this on its own without the matte top coat, but I wanted to get that whole eggshell feel to it.

Happy Polishing!
