Poke Nail Polish by Illamasqua Review & Swatch

Illamasqua’s nail varnish in Poke costs £14.50.

Poke is described as bright violet purple with a shimmer finish.

It’s a bright violet polish with a silver shimmer to it. It’s simply beautiful in real life. It only needs two coats to be opaque and has a good level of chip resistance. It’s got a lovely shine without a top coat.

The brush in the bottle is a little thin for my liking, I prefer paddle brushes but that’s a minor thing.

I adore this colour and the shine of the polish. Removal is the same as for ordinary polish. Despite the silver shimmer, it’s not like glitter polish. It’s a great polish.
