Illamasqua Gothica - Canada Bay Exclusive

Hey all!

Another Illamasqua post I know but I have put off posting this for long enough! I was lucky enough to be able to get my hands on Gothica, the limited edition Canada Bay exclusive nail polish with the help of the amazing Sarah over at Shatter Me Claire! This polish was released as a part of the Sacred Hour collection.

Gothica is a beautiful eggplant purple with green shimmer. It looks a little darker than bottle colour and the shimmer is a little bit shy but it is still beautiful. I noticed when I was taking it off there was a tonne of shimmer in the polish, so next time I wear it I may try do the trick of quickly wiping it with acetone to remove some of the base colour to allow more of the shimmer to show through. I will update this post if I do it :P

Photos show 2 coats Gothica and 1 coat Poshe top coat.
