Illamasqua Pink Raindrops Swatches + Chevron Nail Art

Wednesday, July 17, 2013
While ordering from Sephora recently, I noticed that Illamasqua's Raindrops and Pink Raindrops were in stock.  I have had my eye on them for quite some time, but never saw them available in my local Sephora stores.  I'm so glad I decided to order them on a whim because they are gorgeous!

I will review Raindrops at a later date, but today I will be showing you Pink Raindrops:

Pink Raindrops is the definition of ballet slipper pink, that sort of peachy-pink nude.  It reminds me of the ballet slippers I wore when I used to dance.  There is a really lovely hot pink shimmer running through it, and it is packed with pearly white flakes that are very visible on the nail.  I usually don't love pinky nudes on my skin tone, but I actually really loved wearing this one.  It was nearly opaque in one coat, but I used two for the photos.

I made some chevron cutouts a few days prior to this design because I was going to do something else with them, but I was in the mood for some nail art so I went a bit chevron crazy over Pink Raindrops.  The neon pink chevron is China Glaze Hang Ten Toes, and the white is Zoya Purity.  The glitter is OPI Pink Yet Lavender.


I've been a big Illamasqua fan recently, and Pink Raindrops (and Raindrops!) have impressed once again.  I definitely need some more Illamasqua's in my collection!

Thank you for reading! :)



  1. Ooo this is a beautiful colour! And I really like the art you did with them.
    I don't own any Illamasqua because I find them a bit pricy.

    1. Thank you! Yes, Illamasqua is definitely pricy :( .. I have found a few on sale at Sephora though!
