Illamasqua Jo'Mina

Hello lovelies! Happy Sunday! I know I haven't been posting much lately but it's been a busy week. We are having a 3-day weekend because Monday is a holiday so I'm trying to relax as much as possible before a new crazy week starts. Today's post is one that I should have put up earlier but I've been postponing it because the photos are not 100% accurate. In the end, I'm not one to edit the colors on my photos so here goes.

I've been lemming this polish for a while now but Illamasqua's are pretty expensive at full price. I was glad to see it in the sale they had a few weeks ago. Thanks to the amazing Esther from Fab Fingertips, I was able to dodge the high shipping rates they have for international orders. Thank you again love! 

Jo'Mina is a vibrant vibrant lilac creme. It's a little more pink in reality but I wasn't able to photograph it properly. The sun pictures are even worse so I won't include those at all. The formula is great on this one and it only needed 2 coats to be opaque. It dries fast to a fairly shiny finish. My swatches don't have any top coat on. 

Of course I had to do a little nail art on top so I stamped with plate CH14 and Opoola purple stamping polish. I must say that this image is one of those that made me love the Cheeky set even before I got it. These doodled flowers are so fun and original! 

I really enjoyed this manicure and I know Jo'Mina is a polish I will be wearing a lot, especially in the spring!
