Illamasqua Faithful NOTW aka Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Happy Friday, everyone!  I'm cooped up in my office today so I can try and pump out an assignment I've had two weeks to work on and only had time to sit down and work on today. Buuuuuummer. Yeah, its due today. I'm a model student, I know. But anyway, I wanted to take my little "break" (before I've even started, no less) to show you a polish I wore the week before Halloween - Illamasqua Faithful.

Faithful has been on my wishlist since Cynthia over at Of Life and Lacquer wore it way back in July. I bought this before I put myself on a no-buy for the holiday season (also a major bummer) when I made a special trip to a Sephora on the strip. None of the "off the strip" Sephoras carry anything other than Illamasqua's core polish line, no makeup - nothing, so I rarely get a chance at new stuff right off the bat. I loathe hotel/casino parking garages. Well, parking garages in general. Ok, all parking. :)

For my NOTW I wore two coats of Faithful, a velvety milk chocolate brown with a strong, finely milled golden shimmer as well as some larger gold flecks. Faithful's formula, like all Illamasquas I've encountered, was amazing. And was almost perfect at one coat! I love this color but I'm not sure I'm entirely sold on it, I don't know if it suits my skintone. I'm just so pink. It looks amazing on Cynthia, though, I'm super jealous.

Now, I'm off to try and be a productive student.

PS. I've named this mani Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Dudes name their cars and boats, why can't we name our manis!?
