This is one of the three nail polishes that I got from my super lovely reader called Nina, who visited me last weekend to help me practise doing make-up. The fact that she came all the way from Ljubljana, our capital, to my hometown just to meet me still baffles me, but I am really glad that she came over, because she is one of the nicest people I have ever met. Seriously. Nina, if you’re reading this, you’re the best! 😉
As I have said, she brought me three ridiculously pretty nail polishes and let me just say, she definitely knows my taste, because the shades that she picked out for me are spot on! The first one that caught my attention is this nail polish from Yes Love called ‘Speckled’. My heart skipped a beat when I saw it, because it reminds me so much of the Illamasqua specked nail polishes that have been on my I-want-them-but-I’m-never-going-to-buy-them-because-they’re-too-freakin’-expensive wishlist since they first came out. I mean, I’m pretty sure I can declare this shade as a dupe for ‘Mottle‘. The Yes Love one lasted about two days on my nails and I needed three coats to get it opaque, so I’m guessing the quality of the two is not comparable – it better not be for the price you’re paying for the Illamasqua one – but at least it looks almost the same, which is totally enough for me. What do you think, could this be a dupe? Do you have any Illamasqua or Yes Love nail polishes? What do you think about them?
