Perseid*, a galactic black glitter from Illamasqua £14.50
available online and in stores
In October I shared with you all a very exciting project I had been working on with Illamasqua where I was amongst four bloggers chosen to create our very own collection - the #Creators collection. Made up of two lip glosses and two nail varnishes, this unique social collaboration was in celebration of Illamasqua's five spectacular years of existence and was inspired by dark stars and far-off galaxies. Whilst I was busy creating my very own Illamasqua lip gloss, Culminate, Suzi was working on this dramatic polish aptly called Perseid, meaning a prolific meteor shower and depicts this polish perfectly.
Perseid was the creation of Style Suzi and is a gorgeous galactic mix of blackened purple, fine shimmer and chunky glitter laced with an iridescent teal undertone that makes it completely spellbinding. The formula can be a bit tricky to work with so I advise two or three light coats to get a completely opaque finish and even surface, followed by a glossy top coat to keep the polish looking as striking as possible. It really is such a unique, fun shade and makes a great accent nail colour as well with a deep purple or black varnish on all the other nails. It will leave everyone starry-eyed!
