Today's mani might seem unusually plain, but I've been eyeing this polish, Illamasqua Facet, for such a long time until I finally got it, that I wanted to show it without any distraction. Again, thank you so much Deborah for helping me to get this one!
Facet has a murky taupe base with the typical hints of grey and purple, depending on the light. What distinguishes this one from other taupe polishes is the intense flakie shimmer in a color that lies somewhere between gold and bronze. Sometimes flakie shimmer cremes tend to hide all the shimmer in the base, but not this one. The flakies are clearly visible even in low light. As a special extra, Facet looks like it's hidden under a grey veil in certain angles.
I used three thin coats of Facet (with shorter nails two might be enough) and had no issues with application. I added some Born Pretty Store studs and secured them with Essence Better Than Gel Nails Top Sealer.
