Illamasqua Pastel Nails collection contains four beautiful colors that are already available in the shops as well as on @Illamasqua website.
I received Nugde nail polish together with Blow ( review ) just the other week, packed in a beautiful turquoise box together with other surprises from Illamasqua.
Since I first so the promotional photo for Pastel Nails collection I wanted to try Nudge color and I had a felling it would be my favorite from the entire collection. Nudge is a beautiful minty ice cream shade that comes in a 15 ml bottle for the price of £13.oo. Currently there is an offer for the entire collection on Illamasqua website and you can save up to £ 13.00 if you decide to buy the whole four nail polishes.
Nudge nail polish – 2 coats
The texture is a little bit creamy but fluid and glides easily, the brush is perfect so the application went smoothly. I’ve applied 2 coats so I can get the final result and the color looks perfect, without lines or brush strokes. Continue Reading
I guess you’ve already read my preview post on the Illamasqua’s products so I will start right away with the review of Blow nail polish.
Blow is one of the fourth nail varnishes included in the Pastel Nail Collection for Spring 2010. The entire collection is already available in the shops or @Illamasqua website. Actually there is a special offer these days for the entire collection and you can save up to £ 13.00.
Blow nail polish is the sweetest lemon color you can wish for this season. It comes in a 15 ml bottle, the same as the other colors and if you are looking for a fun pastel color and you are into yellow shades, you might just wanna check this one out.

As you probably know Illamasqua nail polishes are known for being chip resistant so as usual I’ve tested the polish for several days before I came up with the full review. Continue Reading
Last week I finally got the package from Illamasqua. Due to some air traffic problems my package arrived much later then it was expected. Maybe some of you know the problem with that smoke that caused all the terrible delays and air traffic problems in almost all European airports.
Anyway I’m just happy that I finally got some promo materials and two nail polishes from Illamasqua. They’ve all came packed in this pretty turquoise box with this elegant bow. I’m a sucker for cute packaging so I must tell you that I’m going to keep this box and I already feel attached to it. Even Illamasqua admitted they received positive feedbacks for this packaging.

Lately I discovered I’ve got a thing for cute collections with beautiful, romantic and elegant packaging, almost similar with a fairy tale story. Asian brands are already famous for their cute collection packaging so here it’s another summer 2010 collection from Majolica Majorca.
Blooming Dreamer makeup collection contains only a few products but I’m sure you will love the design of the items. All the products included in this collection have a brand new design and they will be available in Limited Edition. I’m jealous on those of you who are lucky enough to have this brand available in your country.
