Review: Illamasqua Destiny - Myer Australia Exclusive

Hey all!

I have a very special polish for you today, it is Illamasqua Destiny and it was created in celebration for Chinese New Year.

In celebration of Chinese New Year 2014, Myer will carry a worldwide exclusive Illamasqua Nail Varnish shade.

According to Chinese Astrology, 2014 is the year of the Wooden Horse. Inspired by the new life that leaves bring to a bare wooden bark in the spring, we have captured a fresh green leaf in our latest shade, Destiny.

Destiny encompasses the celebration of new beginnings, named to align with the belief that the Chinese Astrology Calender can be used to determine a person's fortune.

To mirror the imperfect, unpredictable nature of a leafy tree, Destiny fuses fine and hexagonal gold glitter particles in a glitter finish formula.

A bottle green wash punctuated with golden lime accents, not unlike the multi-tonal spectrum of a tree within the spring bloom.

This polish is just stunning! I am a huge sucker for greens and this is definitely unique amongst my collection.

Formula wise, it is a little thick, but not so bad that it is difficult to use. The polish can be controlled very easily and goes where you want it. Perfect coverage in the Illamasqua standard of 2 coats. You could get away with one if you wanted, but I like the depth of 2.
