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.
I live in Brixton in London. I eat out far too much, am always planning my next trip and have a borderline unhealthy obsession with Harry Potter.
