Midweek Manicure // Illamasqua - Caress

Most of my nail polishes are high street brands costing no more than a fiver a bottle. However every now and then it's nice to push the boat out and treat yourself to something high end and this gorgeous powder blue Caress polish by Illamasqua really is a treat to wear.

I'm a real sucker for a blue nail polish and this one is an absolute beaut. Caress is a really pale cornflower blue but dries with a lovely glossy finish and looks so pretty on the nail.

It is quite sheer so I always use a few thin coats to make sure I get an even full coverage (the photos here show 3 coats). It's a really beautiful, serene colour and despite being an absolute dream for Spring, it actually looks lovely all year round. I really like wearing it with black as it stands out and really makes an impact

Whilst looking for this colour on the Illamasqua to provide a link for you lovelies to buy your own bottle of Caress, I've just seen that it's actually now discontinued say whaaaaat?!?! However there are lots of other colours available including some in the sale for a bargain £5.80 a bottle (**uses all strength to resist buying one of every colour**) From my experience of Caress and Scarab (review here) Illamasqua polishes are great quality and definitely worth giving yourself a little treat. Oh screw it, I'm buying more!!!
