Hello lovelies! A rather unusual late night post from me but I just couldn't wait to post this! I have the most beautiful polish to show you! the gorgeous picture polish illusionist! Illusionist is a limited edition shade that was released at the end of February 2014 with 4 other shades. I loved all of them and I quickly snapped 3 of them up in the Sally Magpies sale a couple of weeks ago.
For the base I decided to use Ciate Power Dressing; a dark blue crelly. These shades are very sheer and are supposed to be layered over a base colour. The dark blue seemed to make the polish pop a bit more than a black. I used just one medium coat in the swatches below without topcoat. Application was brilliant, as with all other Picture Polishes I've tried so far. This polish dried to a smooth, glossy finish and I actually didn't use topcoat when I wore it without the nail art.
Isn't it just stunning? It really does look like a galaxy on my nails but with very little effort. It changes between so many colours! You can see purple, pink, green and turquoise! It appears really quite green in some lights but it didn't want to be photographed!
I added some one stroke flowers after wearing this polish plain for a day. It really didn't need any nail art but I wanted to see how it'd look and also I just felt the urge to do some painting :)
What do you think? Have you got any of these limited edition shades?
