Illamasqua – Creator

I have the only polish I was given for Christmas to show you today, one by Illamasqua called Creator from the Generation Q release.  Its a lovely black rammed full of silver glitter.  I know, how may black sparkly polishes does one person need?  More than one!  Including this one!!

So, as you can see in the pictures, its simply lovely.  The formula on this is nothing short of perfect, smooth, thick and goes on like butter.  It is only a smidge away from being a one coater if you apply it thickly, but I used two average thickness coats.  It is the deepest black polish, the silver is wonderfully and evenly suspended throughout the whole polish.  And delightfully it remains so on application.  Drying time is on the fast side and two coats, with a base and top coat, took no more than 15 minutes.  Base was Seche Clear and top coat was Seche Vite.

I love this polish, I wore it twice whilst I was away over Christmas and I’ve just applied it for the third time!  I have a couple of other Illamasqua polishes but this has swiftly become my favourite (as a side note, I also have the Magnetism lipstick from the Gen Q collection which I am also fond of)  I may even have to splash out when the re-release of Raindrops comes along.

You can purchase Illamasqua from their website (shipping is worldwide) or in certain stores that have a concession, in the UK this would be Selfridges, some Debenhams or at one of the stand alone stores.  You can find the UK ones here. Retail is £13.50 and its worth signing up to the enewsletter as sometimes you get free shipping or percentage discounts.

What other polishes from Illamasqua would you recommend?
