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.
