Review: Speckled Nail Polish? Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Speckle

Hey Everyone!

nails of the week

I’ve been receiving lots of compliments on my nails lately so I thought I’d share with you what’s on them this week! There are so many nail trends nowadays – from magnetic to velvet and concrete – but “speckled’ nails in a bottle have also recently made its debut! I’ve been wearing Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Speckle – it’s a pretty pale purple with black speckles!


And even though it’s pretty much summer now, they remind me so much of chocolate Easter eggs! My parents brought back an entire bag of them and they’re so yummy. They’re like enlarged MnMs.


I get a lot of questions whether I did my nails myself and it’s as easy as just one swipe of the brush! The nail varnish has larger glitter particles and really small ones that are mono colour and when you apply it, they appear as black dots. The smaller speckled dots come from layering your nail polish too so you have a bit of a translucent gradient effect. The Illamasqua nail varnishes actually come in a few other shades like pink, green and blue besides purple!


The effect is a pretty unique set of nails. I really like the imperfect look of them and they add great texture to the nails too! And it doesn’t help that they look edible. But remember to stick to you easter eggs, lol.


Hope you have a great week!
