illamasqua; gamma, purity and radium♥

I thought I would do a quick post about a few nail polishes I have been loving lately. I very rarely get excited for nail polish collections, but when I saw the nail polishes due for release with the Illamasqua 'toxic nature' collection, I knew the pastel shade 'purity', and two brights, 'radium' and 'gamma' had to be mine.
I purchased 'radium' when I visited London, and then I ordered 'gamma' and 'purity' with my ASOS groupon. They are £13.50 each, and you get 15ml of product.
These nail polishes apply like a dream. Really smooth, great coverage and they last a good few days before they show any signs of wear. I know alot of people expect a nail polish that costs £13.50 to last a lot longer than a few days, but as nail polishes normally chip on me within a few hours, 2-3 days is amazing to me.

'radium' is described as an acidic lime with chartreuse micro shimmer. My favourite of the three. I took a picture of the shimmer so you can see how pretty it is.
'gamma' is a neon orange, plain and simple. It is in your face bright, and that's what I love about it!
I smudged 'radium' and didn't even realise until I saw the pictures, sorry!! 
'purity' is a peach. I was hesitant to order this at first as I thought it looked like a models own nail polish that looks awful on me. Whilst I'm not as in love with this as the other two, I do really like it, and it's growing on me the more I wear it.

Overall I am very impressed with these polishes. They're not cheap but the quality definitely makes them worth the price in my opinion. I really want 'rare' and 'nudge' after seeing this post by jessica. How freakin' gorgeous!!

Anyway, hope your all having a lovely weekend?

Thankyou for reading

  9. Hello there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was
    wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
