Raindrops has been on my beauty radar for what feels like forever, so when I saw it stocked in the Illamasqua sale, I just had to nab it. It's a stunning colour, very much a rainy storm cloud in a bottle and is the perfect shade as we transfer from Winter to Spring.
The colour is a sheer light grey-blue with a jelly like finish, but what really makes this colour special is the flecks of silver running throughout. It creates a tiny thunderstorm on your finger nails, and I'm not ashamed to say that I sat waving my hands in front of me to catch the soft, subtle shimmer when I first wore it.
The formula for Raindrops is really great. It's a shade which can be built up depending on how sheer or solid you want the final finish. These photos show three coats over a clear base coat which provided a really dense colour which took a good three days before the tips started to chip away. I'm utterly in love with it, and can't wait to explore more of Illamasqua's more unique polishes.
Until next time,
