Mottle Polish by Illamasqua Review & Swatch

Here is a swatch of Illamasqua’s Limited Edition Mottle nail polish. Unfortunately it is no longer available from the Illamasqua website. However there is a dupe!

Mottle is a mint green nail polish with small black glitter in it. They are the to simulate the effects of egg shells.

It has a good opaque finish in two coats is a nice mint green colour. Due to the black glitter it is slightly uneven when placed on the nail. If you want high shine and to smooth the surface you’re going to need a top coat.

The advantage with it being textured is it’s slightly more chip resistant than your basic polishes.

The disadvantage is it’s a nightmare to take off. It’s the same with any polish with glitter in.

I do love this polish though and now there is a dupe in the form of Models Own Speckled Eggs polish in Magpie Green. It’s not only a little brighter but it’s also cheaper. Score! Go check it out.
