Illamasqua Body Electrics Nail Varnish Set

    Good morning, Dear Reader!

    Today, as the title, tells you, I have a little something fun for you from across the pond: the Illamasqua Body Electrics.  I don't think I've ever called nail polish "varnish" before, but that's the official name of the set, and I find it charming, so I used the full name.

    I got the full set because Illamasqua was out of at least one of the colors individually.  The set consists of the three Body Electrics colors, and they toss in a free base coat.  I've told you before that the base coat is pretty nice and that I use the one I got as a freebie before with Illamasquas, but I wouldn't pay the Sephora price of $14 for it.  I'm halfway through the first base coat, and I got a couple more Illamasquas not at Sephora as long as I was paying the £7.50 for shipping, so it worked out well to keep using it with them.

    I took picures of the Body Electrics in natural light, and they're fabulous.  Each applied beautifully, as I expect from Illamasqua, and were easily two-coaters.  Let's get to the swatches!

    Force is an amazing blue, really bright and vivid, and I think it's dramatic against very pale skin.

    Jo'mina is a gorgeous pale purple creme unlike any other I have.

    Prism is a sheer, not my strong suit.  I tried it over black, and it's too milky to go over black, so I ended up putting it over my Jo'mina manicure, and I like it a lot.  It softens the color a bit, but adds a blue flash.  This is one coat of Prism.

    Those are the three Illamasqua Body Electrics colors, and I'm glad I got all three - I really love them.  

    That's it for today, Dear Reader, so until tomorrow, love and nail polish to you!
