Illamasqua Melange

I'm going to be mean to you today and show you a polish that isn't available in the States. Sadly, Illamasqua has decided that they will no longer be selling in the US market. Which makes me sad, because this polish is gorgeous with a capital G!

Melange means "a mixture often of incongruous elements." I don't think the elements that went into this polish were incongruous at all. In fact I think they go together perfectly. Melange has a minty teal base filled with golden sparkle. For my swatches I've used 3 coats for perfection. 




What do you think? This was my first try of an Illamasqua polish and I'm sad that I didn't try them sooner when they were easy to get ahold of.

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

  2. It looks really similar to Butter London Two Fingered Salute. Have any idea if they're near dupes?

    1. The base is bluer in Two Finger Salute and its a copper shimmer instead. Maybe they are sisters?

  3. Beautiful mani! your nails look fantastic in this shape and with this color. and the ring is such a pretty complement. I have only 3 Illamasqua shades. They did have the most unique, edgy shades, for a mainstream nail company. The brand will definitely be missed.
