These are all colours I've used before. This is three coats of Illamasqua Load, with spots in Illamasqua Obsess and OPI Conquistadorable color. Load is the only problem child in the Illamasqua family application wise (not surprising for something that is equal parts white and yellow) but it looks great on me, so I don't mind. The spots and just freehanded blobs, which was a bit tricky with the pro-wide brush but came out OK in the end. The overall effect reminds me of Emma Bridgewater pottery, which wasn't intentional but is, I think, a nice thing to be reminded of.
Finally I took a couple of shots of the OPI bottle because the last time I wore it, a commenter took issue with me including it in the pink family for a series I was doing. Which is fair enough - it's a rose red. But it does have a definite sorbet pink undertone which I tried and failed to show here. It's a lovely shade anyway.
