Illamasqua Raindrops – swatch and review

*I bought this*

Hi everyone

A good while ago I saw a blog post by Scrangie which talked about Illamasqua Raindrops.

I really thought wow and I loved the look of it. But there was no way I could justify it’s price tag! So it’s been a lemming of mine for a while and I have seen many swatches of it online.

So you can imagine how thrilled I was when I saw one in my local TK Maxx for only £3.99!!!!

I love the Illamasqua bottles they are so chunky and classy looking!

It was hard to capture the essence of Raindrops, but hopefully you can see from the picture that it’s a stunning light grey jelly with beautiful silver shimmer and flakies.

It’s formula is incredible, I used 2 easy coats that went on like butter! 2 coats does show a little nail line but I quite like how it looks. I think 3 coats would be fine if you wanted a more opaque look.

I really really love this polish, it’s amazing and Im so happy to own it! I just love how the little flakies peek through – it’s so subtle and pretty.

It’s so shiny aswell – I took these pictures without topcoat!

Raindrops was one of a trio of polishes that were designed by fans. There is also a pink version of Raindrops which Illamasqua released after the popularity of the original Raindrops – how id love to get my hands on that! Also, how beautiful would an ice blue version be…?!

Do you own Raindrops? Is it one of your lemmings? Please let me know!
