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.
