Hi everyone! It was brought up on a Facebook group I’m in that the newish Sinful Colors Stoned Crystal Shimmers collection may be close to the Dance Legend Mist Way colors and Illamasqua Raindrops & Pink Raindrops. Well, I have a few of the Mist Way colors and both of the Illamasqua’s, so I thought I would do a comparison and give my thoughts on these polishes.
Hi everyone! Today’s manicure is from the Illamasqua Extinct Collection. Illamasqua is based in the UK and is kind of hard to get your hands on here in North America. When this collection first came out (this summer I believe) I tried to order this polish and the other new nail polish from this collection and they said they would not ship them to the US. They would have shipped any of their other polishes to me at that time, but not these two new ones for some reason. Fast forward to a few weeks ago, I got an email from Illamasqua of a big sale on their website. So I clicked over and saw the two polishes from this collection on sale, so I figured I would try again. This time they allowed me to buy this polish but still not the other from this Extinct collection. Weird! So I removed the other polish, added in a few more nail polish to make shipping worthwhile and placed my order.
Hi everyone! Today I have a nice bright neon to show you. I’m not a big wearer of neons (except for on my toes) but I’m going to reach for more of them this year if they all behave as great as Illamasqua Collide (which sadly I doubt they could).
I just purchased this online from The Bay in Canada. They have been fazing out Illamasqua polishes, but they have a few left and they’re on sale too! I just opened my package yesterday and knew I was going to have to put this beauty on my nails right away!
Today’s mani has good news and bad news attached to it.
Good news: It is still available to buy.
Bad news: You have to pay big bucks on Ebay or pay big bucks to order direct from Illamasqua (if you are in North America like me).
Illamasqua is a favorite brand of mine. Every single one I have tried, I have loved and this beauty is no exception! I wonder why Illamasqua pulled out of North America? I was lucky enough to find this when The Bay in Canada was clearancing off Illamasqua polish last year.
