Nails: Illamasqua "Bacterium"

Tonight I'm taking inspiration from Liloo and posting a NOTD for today's blogging date!

Illamasqua's Bacterium will always remind me of my trip to Atlanta last year, despite me not actually buying it there! I put it in my basket during pretty much every trip to Sephora but always put it back on the stand. I figured that I could always buy it over in the UK so I didn't need to spent the money on it in the US.

I eventually bought it during a trip to Meadowhall and have only just got round to wearing it. When I tested it out as soon as I got home, it took 4 coats to get nearly full coverage. I hate seeing any nail line so I put it back into the "Drawer Of Doom" and pretty much forgot about it.

And this is where Liloo comes in. She regularly uses a nude nail polish under a sheerer colour to get better coverage in fewer coats. She's particularly fond of Gosh Nude Champagne so I bought one the next time I was in Superdrug.

To be honest, I hate it. The colour does my no favours at all so I'd never wear it on its own. But, Bacterium looks pretty awesome. All browny-taupey-blue flashy on my nails. Oh, excuse the laboratory hands (frequent sanitisation dries them out something awful).


  1. oh no :( I am sorry you hate nude champagne on its own. i feel so so so bad xxx

    1. Oh, don't feel bad! It just doesn't quite work on its own with my skin tone, but look how delicious it made Bacterium look!
