Illamasqua Radium

I think I told you that I had ordered two polishes from Illamasqua, and I received them two months later, after already opening a paypal complaint, writing to the post office. I had tried to work things out with their client service, but they just kept telling me that according to their reccords I had received the package. So finally after two months I did receive it.
This is one of the polishes in the package I know you've seen this lots of other places, but I like it and here it is.
It's a green cream base, with yellow shimmer I think.
The application is ok, the brush is not amazing, but it works pretty well, I had some trouble because the cap was square and I am not used to this.
The formula is great, the brush glided off nicely, and I only had to use 2 coats, so overall this is a great polish, but the price is kind of a turn off. I paied 21£ on two polishes, plus delivery 7.5£ that's a total of  28.5£ which means 47$ that is 15 China Glaze polishes.
But it was worth buying them because they were on 20% sale, and I had to have some Illamasqua in my collection.

And I had to do a design with my dotting tools, and here is what came out, looks a bit like some bizzare reptile. I don't like it.
So what do you think? Do you own any Illamasqua polishes? What are your opinion on them?
Tell me all about that.


  1. You nails are looking so pretty.
    I like this color... I only own one of the Illamasqua nail polishes and I think they are great but not the best.

  2. Thanx Carolina!!
    I have another one that's waiting to be tried out, but I don't think I will be buying more.

  3. I'm still waiting for my own :) I love this color and I think it looks good on your nails!

  4. How long have you been waiting for Mina?

  5. I'd love to try some Illamasqua polishes but actually price+shipping cost held me from placing an order (even if their sales are tempting)!

  6. I ordered it from and they sent it 16.8. :)

  7. Oh so you're ok. I ordered it directely from their site.

  8. Hi, It sounds like you had really bad luck with your Illamasqua order because I generally receive mine within 3 days!! I live in Germany.
    You must pull the square cap OFF like with the Dior polishes & Butter London - then it's easier to use the brush.
    Love the dotty design:))

  9. Buggsiebee - thanx for the tip, since it didn't come off by itself like on the Dior, I thought it wasn't supposed to. Yep I had some bad luck with their order.

  10. Wow, that is crappy about how long it took to get to you!! Sounds so frustrating!


I love reading your comments so don't hesitate to leave one!! Thank you!! It is very appreciated!
