Illamasqua I'mperfection collection nail polish swatches - scarce, speckle, mottle, fragile and freckle

Last night I went along to see the new I'mperfection collection from Illamasqua.  There was such a lot to see so I'm going to break this into two posts, and naturally I decided to talk nail polish first!

These nail polishes were inspired by the natural speckle of a bird's egg and come in some beautifully soft pastel colours for Spring.  I'll explain a lot more about the thoughts behind I'mperfection when I post about the rest of the collection - this post is really just to show you my swatches of these pretty pretty colours.

The closest thing I've seen to the speckle effect is the Nails Inc sprinkles polishes.  I think the speckle polishes work in a similar way, but the finished effect is very different.  These have an creamy opaque pastel base colour with two different sizes of a matt grey glitter running through them to give the speckly effect.

I really like these and love all five shades, especially when worn together - my nails look like tasty Cadbury's mini eggs.  I can't choose a favourite - the pink (scarce), lilac (speckle) and nude (freckle) are my top three!

The Illamasqua I'mperfection polishes will be available from 31 January and cost £14.50 each.  

Do you like the speckle polish effect?
