NOTD: Trilliant by Illamasqua...

Trilliant is one of three shades in Illamasqua's Star Burst range of nail polishes - this range of polishes have shimmery formulas that are also filled with silver 3D glitter particles.

The Star Burst polish range is meant to give the same look as OPI's Liquid Sand polishes & Zoya's PixieDust line, but do I feel that they compare to those brands hard wearing formulas?

Trilliant is described by Illamasqua as having a champagne base, but I think that the base shade has a very slight pink undertone to it. The polish dries semi-matte, but the shimmer and glitter is so shiny it almost looks like a creme. The polish has a slightly texturised finish,  but it isn't as gritty as it's main lookalikes - OPI Liquid Sand polishes.

The regular Illamasqua polishes are the longest wearing polishes that I've tried, and this Star Burst one is no different- even without using a topcoat.

I know that textured polishes are largely considered to be 'over', but I highly recommend this one. It's especially good for those who like the look of the Liquid Sand or Pixie Dust polishes, but don't like the overly gritty texture of them.


Illamasqua Star Burst polishes cost £15 online, or at a counter. 

I found my bottle in TK Maxx for only £3.99, so if you have a store near you it is well worth the trip to see what's in stock that day.
