Illamasqua Pink Raindrops Review

Illamasqua is probably more well known for their wild collections, creative ideas and truly flawless finish professional products. So imagine my delight when I laid my eyes on Illamasqua Pink Raindrops polish! A beautiful pale pink with iridescent glitter, this polish is a beautiful polish for Summer which goes with any look you desired! A super wearable shade, the Illamasqua Pink Raindrops polish applies evenly and opaque to my nails, and stays chip free for at least 6 days! I love wearing this either alone or teamed with another pink polish and used on my accent nail to add a touch of magical sparkle. I really adore how this polish looks when the light bounces off of it, it's truly a lovely shade which brings a smile to your face! A limited edition polish, you can pick up Illamasqua Pink Raindrops over on the Illamasqua website, where it costs £14.50.

My tips for glitter polishes
Although in this particular polish the glitter isn't chunky or overly obvious, it does still have glitter in it. I love glitter polishes and find adding a glitter topcoat to a polish can entirely change the look of it! But boy oh boy can they be a nightmare to remove. Sometimes it can take me ages to remove glitter polishes but one method I really like is moderately soaking cotton pads with nail polish removing, wrapping them around your nails and then wrapping them with tin foil. I just find this makes it easier to swipe off the polish after it the cotton pads and tin foil have been left on for 10-15 minutes. If you have any top tricks for removing glitter polishes, I'd love to hear them.

    1. I agree, it's pink enough but not so pink you need sunglasses. Just the right shade I think xo

  3. I have been wanting this colour for a while! I know that the original 'Raindrops' is quite sheer, how many coats does it take until its opaque? Xx

  5. I love Pink Raindrops, it's such a gorgeous shade. I had a bit of trouble with the overall texture of mine once applied, but I've got a feeling that a good topcoat will sort it out for me!

  6. This is such a pretty shade, I plan on making a trip to an illamasqua counter as soon as the ban is over to swatch it :). Personally I can never be bothered to faff around with tin foil to remove glitter polish (I will always do everything the lazy way) So I just remove the colour as usual, leaving behind all the glitter then use the buffing side of a nail file to loosen the glitter off the nail- obviously taking care not to buff the nail surface. It's fairly quick as well :)
