NOTD: Opi Rumples Wiggins and Girly Bits Hocus Pocus

 So the other day was the Enchanted Polish restock, and when I seen I love you Lilac I knew it had to be mine, but alas I did not get it :( I did get others though, but not that one! So the next day I was thinking to myself I must try and recreate this look, so this was my best go. Opi Rumples Wiggins and Girly Bits Hocus Pocus on top.

The top two where taken in direct sunlight and the bottom one was in the shade, I think I got the look I wanted, is an exact dupe? not really but its the same look. Does that mean I wont buy the Enchanted if I can? Nope! I totally plan it it hahah!

Check out the Enchanted polish here

Illamasqua Raindrops swatches and review

Today I have what I think is a special polish, Illamasqua Raindrops! I know it was very popular in the nail polish community when it was first released a few years ago, but it was LE and hard to find.. Now Illamasqua has brought it back!! I can see why so many people love it. Its is beautiful, subtle and unique.

I would say this is a blue toned gray with small silver/white glass fleck. It is sheer but buildable without any issues, I used 3 coats to get full opacity, the formula was awesome there was no streaking or tugging at the cuticle when I added the next coat and it didn't get thick and gooey after 3 coats.

The only problem is that its only available on the Illamasqua website and the shipping is rather expensive coming from the UK, I bought this in a group buy to save on shipping and I paid about $20 USD, but I think this is very very much worth the 20 dollars, I also bought the LE Pink Raindrops and I should be getting that in a few weeks so keep your eyes open!

So what do you think, are you planning on picking this up? Let me know if you have any questions :)
