Illamasqua - Melange

I see many pretty polishes, and I often exclaim my love for them, but Illamasqua's Melange really made me gasp, and it was very much love at first sight. Unfortunately, as a student, I've never been able to afford it, and I was extremely jealous when my friend Kerry from Sherbert London got her hands on it. I'm very lucky though and she has let me borrow it (I advise you all to get yourself a Kerry!). 

Part of Illamasqua's AW14 'Once' collection, Melange is a teal polish with tiny flecks of gold and bronze giving it a stunning subtle shimmer.

In direct sunlight the teal really pops as you can see above. The picture below shows it in natural light in the shade. The formula is great, I've used two coats for an even finish and added a top coat. It is supposed to be a matte finish but I wouldn't agree.

Isn't is just so beautiful?! I'm definitely going to buy my own bottle of it if it goes into a sale in the future (fingers crossed!). What do you think of Melange? If you have any favourite Illamasqua shades then let me know!

Melange is available to buy from Illamasqua's website priced at £14.50. Thanks again Kerry!
