Monday Blues: Flormar BD04

Hello my lovelies! Monday again and on top of everything it's supposed to snow today. I'm so not ready for that! At least I have a beautiful blue polish to show you and take your Monday blues away. I was very excited when the Black Dot collection from Flormar came out because they reminded me of the Illamasqua Speckled polishes that are completely out of my price league. I waited patiently for these to show up at my local Flormar counter and then picked up the brighter blue one. The collection also has a lighter blue, a mint, a grey and a pink one. They all have the same type of black glitter, only the base color is different. The one I'm showing you today is BD04.

BD04 is a sky blue jelly base that is full of two different sizes of black glitter. I think that compared to the Illamasqua Speckled polishes, both sizes of glitter are larger. The large hex glitters seem larger than the Illamasqua ones, but I can't be totally sure about that. The small ones are clearly larger because the Illamasqua ones look tiny compared to these ones. I still think the resemblance is pretty good and you can get your lemming satisfied with just a fraction of the price.

I think this second picture shows the color a bit more accurately. My camera has the tendency to show colors brighter than they really are. In terms of application, it's a little harder to get the larger glitters out of the bottle but I would say it's still ok. 3 coats is what I used to achieve this look because there were still some bald spots after two. I would say that top coat is a must if you want the polish to look nice and shiny. I would also recomment a peel-off base coat because I've heard horror stories about the removal of this polish. If you don't own such a base coat, do yourself a favor and use the foil method with some powerful remover (acetone is best).

I'm very happy to have this in my collection. I wouldn't spend £14.50 for an Illamasqua Speckled polish but I gladly spent £2.50 for this one. Don't forget that you can check out some more Monday Blues from November below! 




Have a great week!
