NOTD: Poke by Illamasqua (7 DAYS OF POLISH)

Day 3 of the 7 Days of Polish series and I have another purple toned polish to share with you. Illamasqua's Poke is a stunning bright violet shade with a shimmer finish.

First of all, I want to apologise for the blurry photos - the winter weather is killing me. I find it so hard to take up close and clear photos when the lighting changes every 30 seconds!

Anyways, in real life Poke has stunning silver shimmers embedded into the polish that makes the finish look amazing. The formulation of this nail varnish is a dream - with only one coat Poke was almost at full opacity!

Illamasqua varnishes are hands down becoming one of my favourites - the consistency, the longevity and the uniques shades make their range unbeatable. If only these suckers didn't cost a whooping $22 I would have purchase every single colour by now. 

Have you tried Illasmasqua polishes before?
