Review // Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Snap

Illamasqua Nail Varnish - £5.00
Following on from my post about my little Illamasqua haul, here are a few swatches of the nail varnish I bought in the shade Snap.

Snap is described as "a rich pewter with a shimmer finish" which I would agree with to an extent, however to my eye it does look like a matte finish, which I adore. The colour is a gorgeous grey with a beautiful silver shimmer.

I applied a top coat after applying a couple of coats of Snap, which is fairly opaque formula wise, and was a little disappointed when it came to chipping. I found that it only lasted about a day before chipping significantly which is a shame considering the packaging boats of it's chip resistance. It's disappointing from a high end brand as I did expect more considering the price.

 I do adore the shade but would I have paid the full price of £13.50 for it? Perhaps, but I would have been disappointed. I love the colour but the formula lets it down.
