Excited to show you this polish today, it is the stunning Melange from the Once collection that is out today!
The Once collection contains 3 new metallic cream eyeshadows in gorgeous gold packaging, a repromoted powder blush, 1 new sheer lip gloss and 1 repromoted lip gloss and 1 new nail polish, the latter of which I am showing you today.
“Once is the beauty of the burnished, eroded and erudite. A palette inspired by the gentle and exquisite point when a flower starts to fade and becomes impossibly beautiful in its complex decline. Combined with the subtle opulence of faded gilt layers that reveal themselves the more you blend and search. She is an incandescent moment, a poem alive and a light within a pallet of decaying decadence.”
~Creative Director, Alex Box
I completely understand the colour combination used in this polish. Very soft, pretty and feminine.
Melange is a gorgeously soft, dusky antique type teal/green filled with gold and pink flakes. It is very similar in look to Facet from the Sacred Hour collection, and is just as stunning. Because it has the pink flakes it gives it a multi-dimensional look and gives the gold an antique feel.
It was a breeze to apply as standard with Illamasqua polishes and you could get away with 1 coat, but I chose to do two. It dried very smooth, only needing 1 layer of top coat. It was also a breeze to remove, the flakes came off easily and didn't require any scrubbing.
The Illamasqua Once collection is on sale from the 29th August and is available from all counters and Myer online.
Huge thanks to Mikele from Illamasqua Australia for providing this for review.
