Illamasqua Perseid and Fusion from the Creators Collection

Hey all!

I feel pretty lucky to be able to show you the following polishes! Long story short, my parents-in-law where over in the UK about to come home to Australia and asked if I wanted anything while they where still there, so I jumped on the chance to order the 2 polishes from the Creators collection and they brought them back home for me. They're the best!

However, there was one small mishap.. Perseid broke at some point during it's travels. Luckily the pieces of glass had held together and slowed the evaporation so when it reached me it was a thick goopy mess, but a goopy mess I was able to save! I scraped as much as I could off the broken bits of glass and into a shot glass that I then thinned out with nail polish thinners, emptied out and cleaned a spare of Illamasqua Harsh I had (into another misc bottle), poured it into the new Illamasqua bottle (flicking it all over my face in the process) and replaced the label. Done! I was so happy I was able to save it. However, I will never know how the polish would of originally looked as the amount of thinners I added it has undoubtedly changed it. Looks amazing in the bottle though!

Let's get onto it shall we! Fusion is an interesting antiqued bronze colour with a bronze silver glitter and a scattering of copper caramel glitter. This one applied beautifully in the standard 2 coats that you expect from Illamasqua. The polish was nice and thin and easy to control.

Now for the one I was most excited for! Perseid is a purple based polish with a strong green shimmer, packed with holographic hex glitter and micro glitter with flat black hex glitter. Formula wise I cannot comment, and I do not know if the shimmer has been emphasized by the polish thinners. Most of the time the polish base looks black, but you see the purple peeking through over the top of the holo glitters that are close to the surface. The black glitters are a nice touch to as they sit above the green shimmer and add to the layered effect. It definitely looks like a galaxy on your nails.

These polishes are still available from Illamasqua.com. I am unsure if they are available worldwide at counters.
