oh my, it's love.

I can't remember the last time I was this excited about the launch of a new collection, I only discovered illamasqua last year and loved it at first try. the launch was a few weeks ago and I've been itching to share these polishes with you! every now and again a nail trend arrives and the last few have left me underwhelmed (leather, concrete & velvet nails? nope not for me!)

I'mperfection is the name of this collection (I'm perfection...get it!) a clever and thought provoking campaign designed to encourage us to embrace our so called 'flaws' rather than hiding behind them. I for one can't wait for the arrival of my summer freckles and a less made up face- this campaign is everything I love! the collection has some striking blushers and lipsticks that you may want to investigate but for me my heart has been well and truly stolen by these pastel critters..

taking inspiration from nature these rather ingenious nail polishes were born! speckled like a birds egg with the same matte finish; these are mini eggs for your fingers! (hello we all love mini eggs right?) these limited edition polishes have had me jumping up and down like an excited school girl.
I think my favourites are mottle (pastel green) fragile (baby pastel blue) and speckle (lilac pastel.) 
my least favourite is freckle the nude shade but I've always had a thing for ice cream colours so I'm not surprised this one doesn't appeal to me as much.
I've tried out a simple gradient (ombre) using fragile and speckle which was inspired by the girls at the launch, I think this is my favourite way to wear them! 

you can have a look at the collection here! what do you guys think? madness or genius?

  3. I want all of these! The ombre effect is definitely a great way to wear them, haven't seen that yet. I honestly didn't get the 'I'm perfection' name until you just pointed it out, despite the fact that I have seen a couple of posts on this already. I am super slow XD

  4. I must admit I'm rather taken with these, we have similar taste I think as before I had read what you had put with the images I had decided that my least favourite was 'freckle', I love all the pastel colours!

    I think the blue and green are my favourite, no wait, maybe the lilac too...but the pink is rather nice, oh heck I like them all so much!

  5. I think I could pass on on Freckle but the rest of the colors are lovely and definitely remind me of spring and Easter eggs. The ombre effect is perfect.

  6. I have never seen nail polish like these, they remind me of the Cadbury mini eggs at easter! There so pretty, my favorites Speckle (:
