Nails: Illamasqua Poke

I love getting compliments on my nails, and no polish so far has gotten me quite as many compliments as this one! Illamasqua makes some of the most undisputed nicest formula polishes in the industry. I also found out that today is National Coming Out Day! So a purple manicure is perfect for the occasion to show my support for the LGBTQ community. Be loud and proud friends, but most importantly, be you!

This purple glows beyond words. It’s amazing. Yes, it is this bright in real life, and I think that’s why it got so much attention. It has these glowy pieces in it – sort of like RBL Scrangie, but the teal flash is not as pronounced.
