Illamasqua's Fragile

How do you know, when you think blue — when you say blue — that you are talking about the same blue as anyone else?

Hi, everyone!  I hope you don't think I have forgotten about you.  Just been a very busy couple of days in my house.  Quite exhausting!  Good thing I have such an amazing, supportive family. :)

I know you all are also very supportive, so I have been putting a lot of thought into my first giveaway.  I'm trying to decide when to have it and what you all would like to see!

So: What would YOU like to see in a giveaway? Please comment below!

It's been a bit yucky outside this morning so I'm hoping that I will be able to make the mani I have in mind impressive enough to overcome the muck.  In the meantime, I have been wearing Illamasqua's Fragile for the last three days (it wore well until I did the dishes!) and I have really enjoyed it.

Fragile is the first shade I have worn by Illamasqua and it was one of two shades I purchased when Sephora was having it's little sale recently.  Here is it over my Cult Nail's Get it On base coat and topped with one coat of Seche Vite.  I really wanted to show off how incredibly well this formula spreads glitter and how it is just the perfect make for layering glitter to show depth!  I think they did an immaculate job with this one, from the gorgeous baby blue color to the array of glitter sizes within.  Check out my mani, I did three thin coats of Fragile to achieve this look! :)

I have to say, this polish is definitely going to be one that I will wear often as a go to mani.  It's just such a beautiful color!  I spent a lot of time staring at it!  Did you get any of the Illamasqua Speckleds?


  1. I love that polish, so pretty! It looks great on you too. I don't have a single Illamasqua polish in my collection yet which is crazy.

    1. Thank you! :)
      I am so pleased that I bought it. I knew I'd regret it if I didn't. There are some very pretty colors by Illamasqua and I recommend getting them on sale LOL!

  2. I love those, DL's similar line too. I love them, just can't bare to make myself spend that kind of money for one bottle :/ Agh, sometimes it's painfull to be so cheap. Anywho, wanted to let you know I nominated your blog for the Liebsters Award. Here's the details about it:

    1. I will be honest - I used a Gift Card to get my Illamasquas! There is no way I could be buying those as often as we would all like to! ;)
      Thank you so much for your nomination, I am so moved!!!! I nominated five wonderful blogs.
      Talk to you soon, Tami!
