Illamasqua Rare :D

Good afternoon!

I don't usually like buying more expensive polishes, but I had to make an exception for Illamasqua Rare once it showed up in the US. I have to say this is probably *the* best highlighter yellow neon I've ever tried on! It is opaque on its own in 3 thin coats without requiring a coat or 2 of white polish under :D Unfortunately, it seems that the weather was too hot and humid so it applied absolutely horribly, while my swatch (which is shown here) was flawless :-(

Enjoy and have a great day! :D

Love this color definitely looks more opaque than the other neon yellows, it's hard to find a good quality one but this one looks great!

Super bright! I really love it. It beats the one I have by China Glaze all to bits on opacity!

Thank you everyone!!

Nicole - I assume you mean Celtic Sun? Yeah that one is incredibly sheer, but when layered over white it's still smashing :)

That's amazing looking on you! I'm dying to order this brand. I'm just trying to take it easy on the polish buying. It's not working too well. Looks gorgeous on you. Love how bright and opaque it is.
