Under the Microscope: Illamasqua Raindrops Nail Varnish...

                   Illamasqua Raindrops

I'm not sure about you but every time I see a new Nail Varnish that I like, I convince myself that I do not already own that colour when the reality is that I probably already own something similar.

This was the case with Illamasqua's Raindrops.

Illamasqua Raindrops

Raindrops is what I describe as a vintage green. It is very, very sheer on 1st application which I would say would make it suitable as an addition over another colour for something unusual. However, once you apply 3 coats, it transforms into a gorgeous opaque green which I love.

Wear-wise, it is very good. I lead quite an active lifestyle and I also work full-time so it's safe to say that my nails get put through the mill. Therefore, I am always looking out for nail varnishes that do not chip easily and I'm glad to say that this is one of those that meets my expectations.

Have you tried any Nail Varnishes from Illamasqua?
