Illamasqua Raindrops!!!!

If you couldn't tell by the title of this post I am super excited to finally have Illamasqua Raindrops! Raindrops was exclusive to the UK and has been discontinued for awhile. I had given up hopes of owning it but two polish angels and one sweet surprise later and here it is! ♥



Raindrops is a light grey with scattered glass flecks. It is much prettier in person than it is in my photos. Anyone who knows me knows how much I LOVE the rain. Arizona isn't exactly the ideal place for someone who loves the rain. LOL But this reminds me of exactly how the sky looks when it rains so at least I can dream of it.

The formula was very smooth and easy to work with. I used 3 coats for full opacity but you can still see slight VNL on my pinky. I think next time I will layer it over a grey creme to conserve the yummy goodness. Now for way too many photos (hehehe) in sunlight and indoor lighting.










Isn't she lovely? Do you have Raindrops?

As I stated earlier this one is discontinued (I would suggest keeping your eyes out on eBay and blog sales if you want it) but other Illamasqua polishes can be purchased at Sephora.com and Illamasqua.com.
