Good afternoon people of the world!
Recently, I was looking at Illamasqua’s line of varnish on Sephora’s website and realized I was missing Snap. Blasphemy, I thought as I quickly put it into my shopping cart. Seriously, I don’t know how this one managed to sneak by me, but she’s mine now and she’s a beaut!
The formula on this baby was a little tricky. She’s very thick and temperamental. You have to wait a few minutes after the first coat to apply a second or you will get bald patches and streaks. However, she’s so thick that two coats is all you’ll ever need. She took a wee bit longer to dry as well, but it’s well worth it!
Snap is a deep pewter metallic with silvery shimmer. You know I love me some grey’s and this is probably one of the best ones I have ever seen. It’s dark and vampy, it’s metallic, but also shimmery and it looks like molten metal. What more can a girl ask for? The wear on this puppy has been really great also. I managed to get three full days out of it, which for me isn’t all that common (especially for a metallic, they tend to get chippier sooner). I wore it over Illamasqua’s base coat and the top coat I used was Nubar Diamont. This is two coats.
If you like deep greys or colors that look like melted metal, this is for you!
I got this at Sephora and it was $14.00. I believe it’s part of their regular collection, so it’s not LE.
On another note…
Who else watches Damages? I have been hooked since it started and am SO excited season 3 is on now! Hmm will Patty Hewes “get hers” this season?
