1 coat of Raindrops over 2 coats of China Glaze Recycle:
I used three different grey polishes to layer Raindrops over: Sally Hansen Wet Cement, China Glaze Recycle and Diamond Cosmetics Concrete Jungle.
As you can see Concrete Jungle is the closest to Illamasqua's base color, but is it really best to layer it over this shade? Let's see...
Well, if I'm honest, Raindrops looks better layered over any of these shades than it does on it's own. I still can't get over this sheer-ness. *shivers* I guess it depends on the taste, but I personally prefer it over Recycle. It doesn't look as original Raindrops looks (like it does layered over Wet Cement), but the shimmer is more visible this way. And here's one more reason to wear Illamasqua Raindrops layered - the shimmer is more visible when it's layered. No matter what shade of grey you choose. Let me just warn you: you have to be careful when applying it over darker shades. It can look like spilled milk... =)
China Glaze, Recycle, 2 coats + Illamasqua, Raindrops, 1 coat
Diamond Cosmetics, Concrete Jungle, 1 coat + Illamasqua, Raindrops, 1 coat
This is still better than doing 5 coats of Raindrops, right? Tell me: which is your favorite combo? Would you wear this one layered or on it's own?
Thanks for looking!
