The Illamasqua Once Collection launched last Friday and so that it when I ordered Melange. It arrived yesterday (amazing delivery service btw Illamasqua!) which excited me greatly as that meant I could swatch it for today's post for you guys :-)
The above card came with my order. I love the quote from Alex Box about the collection, and the imagery is just divine.
In the swatches I am wearing two coats of Melange with a top coat -
Macro shot to show off the gorgeous golden flakes -
Melange by Illamasqua is a Teal polish which is packed fill of tiny gold and red, almost rust coloured flakes. As the quite says, the collection shows the juxtaposition of the old and new and I think this nail polish sums that up brilliantly. I think the Teal shade is quite a modern and playful colour and the addition of the flakes give it an almost antique looking finish.
This nail colour is my new best friend.
Illamasqua Melange costs £14.50 available at Illamasqua.com.
