Illamasqua Blow

So I am part of a Facebook group named Adventures in Stamping.  Every Sunday we participate in a stamping challenge.  This Sunday the challenge is to use spring colors.  Which for me really is a challenge because I don't really have springy colors, I prefer vampy, dark colors.  So I'm looking at my stash and I choose Illamasqua's Blow as my base. (Illamasqua can be purchased at Sephora $14 for .5oz)

In the bottle it looks like a milky yellow, but after 3 coats it looks like the perfect shade for a bumblebee.  The formula was a little thick, I'll add some thinner for the next time.  Hopefully that would help with the application as it was a little patchy.  

I wouldn't use Blow by itself; yellow is a difficult color to pull off and as you can see it gives me a case of lobster hands.  As for the rest of the mani it turned out as a fail:(

I'll be swatching the rest of my Illamasqua's in the upcoming days.
