Nail of the day

Today Im wearing the gorgeous Bacterium from the Toxic Collection by Illamasqua, it is described as “pearlescent ash ochre”. I feel that close up its almost a pearly mushroom colour but in different lights it seems to have a blue/silver shimmer to it.

The first coat felt a little watery but perfect application was achieved with the second coat. This is the second Illamasqua polish I own and I definately intend to add more to my collection. I called this post nail of the day but Ive actually been wearing this for two days now and the polish still looks as perfect as the day I painted it.
If you love neutral colours this is a fab way to update your collection to include a neutral with a difference.

Whats your favourite neutral ?  Id love to hear from you xx
