Illamasqua Melange

Hi loves! Today I have post about one of the prettiest polishes EVER. Seriously, I've already worn this beauty twice (yeah that's exceptional) and I can predict many more occasions to wear this. It's Illamasqua Melange, and it is heavenly.

Illamasqua Melange




Amost a year ago (time goes by so fast!) I already showed you Illamasqua Facet which kinda feels like the cousin of Melange. It has the same kind of golden flakie shimmer  but in addition to that, Melange also has a pink sparkle to it. The minty green base is perfectly creamy and applies like butter. Really, I did 2 coats but they are barely needed! Also, the Illamasqua brush is perfect, I barely have to do any clean-up when I use it :-).

Looking at this polish it reminds me of the Statue of Liberty. It's a bit more minty in real life rather than green and the shimmer and sparkle stands out really well. Yes, I love this shade!

  23. Lol, Lady Liberty, I see that too! And yes, this is definitely a shade I'd wear. I have something that resembles this and I love it. It's from Catrice... "Mint Me Up", it is called.

  33. That sucks Meghan :( I think I have a bottle or 2 as well that have faded.

    ReplyDelete
  34. *blushes* thank you! But I can definitely see flaws, haha. The squishy stamper shrank the pattern a bit on the bottom of my nails ;-).

    ReplyDelete
  35. Aww, I used to be SO bad at it. A good stamper really helps!

    ReplyDelete

  50. There are so many amazing polishes out there that stamp well! Most A-Englands do, China Glaze has a whole lot of them and there are several OPI's that work as well :).

    ReplyDelete
  51. Thank you so much Valesha! It's so simple yet effective.

    ReplyDelete
  52. They are SO. SQUISHY! Really, so much difference compared to the white ones.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Thanks Nicole! So far I've used the 2 softest and I loooove them, so pink and yellow. So much squishy!

    ReplyDelete
  54. That's such a sweet compliment! And yes, the MM set is amazing though if you know your preference, getting 1 or 2 of the two-piece sets might be good too.

    ReplyDelete
  55. You are right! There's a subtle golden flash in Fotheringhay Castle indeed.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Aww, I'm really happy I've picked this one. It's wonderful on its own and if it stamps this way......even if I had no doubts, Adina's got me used to an awesome quality.
    Plus, your stamping is p-e-r-f-e-c-t!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Thanks so much dear! I think this is a really really great addition to the stash ^^.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Thanks Anne! And you know.. I love stamping. But it's so beautiful, I haven't been able to cover it up yet :D! Besides, I need a true copper stamping polish, maybe that will be a great first try.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Thanks so much Kelli! And yesss the pink excites me too :D
