ABC Challenge: G is for Illamasqua Glitterati

Hi everyone! I'm back again with the ABC challenge and this week we are on letter G! So of course, since my default is glitter, I had to pick a glitter polish. I've been waiting to try this one and I'm excited to share my thoughts with you
Illamasqua Glitterati is a plum/ raspberry jelly with holo and silver (I think) hex glitter. The formula on this was pretty great and it only needed one coat of top coat to be smooth. I really enjoyed wearing this. I loved how it almost had the jelly sandwich look without the work. :) My only complaint is I wish the holo were a bit more apparent. I felt like you couldn't see it at all sometimes because oftthe jelly base. Other than that I really loved it. I am slowly falling in love with Illamasqua and will definitely be purchasing more of their polishes! The photo above is most color accurate. 


Slightly blurry to show off the holo!  

And of course a bottle shot.  

What are your thoughts on this? And what other Illamasqua nail polish shades do you ladies recommend?

Be sure to check out all the lovelies doing this challenge!

  3. Ok. I want to cry! I have an obsession for Glitterati. I didn't buy the duo set because I have a couple of dupe for Viridian. When Illamasqua did a huge sale on its website and this duo was sold for only 15£, I was in no buy policy and I couldn't buy it.
    Hope that they will sold Glitterati as a single polish in the future.
