Illamasqua - Baptiste

Tonight I have a gorgeous Illamasqua polish to show you: this is Baptiste, a very deep purple with lots of shimmery goodness. The overall effect was very velvety and rich; it looks quite dark (almost black) in low light, but mostly it appears as a very deep purple. The formula was par for the course when it comes to Illamasqua- very pigmented, easy to control, and opaque in two coats.




What do you think of Baptiste? Does this one have a home in your collection?

Since I always associate manicures with notable events, and I wore this lacquer on the night I went to a Dragonette concert, I'll leave you with an awesome music video for a song from their latest album:

    1. Nor do I- but I order them from Illamasqua's website! Sometimes they have free shipping weekends that cover international shipping, too! In fact, they just did a quick 24-hours free shipping event. If you sign up for the mailing list, you'll get all the notifications!

  4. Wowww this color is gorgeous!! I love glowy polishes like these. I'm really considering getting this Illamasqua now, and I don't own any! The song is great too. Never heard of this band but I need to check out more of their stuff :)

    1. I thought you might like this Dragonette tune! Their latest stuff has been pretty dance-y. It's awesome! I highly recommend checking them out. They're also amazing live!

    2. So I just realized that I have listened to something by them before! The Martin Solveig remix of Hello :) They're great though, very electronic and dance-y!

    3. Definitely catchy! And I'm pretty sure Hello was used in some cell phone commercial or something... that pretty much sure ensures it'll be stuck in everyone's brains. Some of their older stuff is great, too- check out "Take It Like A Man". Good song, hilarious video!

  6. This is a hot colour! If I was forced to only wear one type of polish I would probably go for vampy shades.

    1. Granted I hope that's never a choice I have to make.

    2. As much as I love vampies, I might opt for something in the grey/lavender (gravender?) category. Always so flattering on me. But yeah, let's hope it never comes to that, k? ;)
