I'd describe Facet as a dark taupe (that leans towards grey) with a fine gold shimmer running through it. This gorgeous, subtle shimmer seein s to be an Illamasqua signature which I love! As with every other Illamasqua polish I've tried application/formula is really straightforward, drying time's good and wear time is fantastic. I don't know what it is about Illamasqua polishes (can you tell I'm a fan?!) but they last really well on my nails without chipping, even if I use a fast dry topcoat like Seche Vite which is notorious for making polishes chiptastic.
As you can see my nails are pretty short at the minute but I think this polish really works with shorter nails as it's a really interesting colour without drawing loads of attention to your nails. Having said that I do think it would look amazing on long pointed nails!
Facet is from the Illamasqua Sacred Hour Collection which is one of my favourite collections for a while. I absolutely love the imagery and the make up looks that have been created for this collection:
I'd actually happily buy half of this collection, I love the lashes, the nail polishes, the blushers, the sacred stones and even the lipstick in Shard which is way darker and more wine-y than I would usually wear. Yay Illamasqua!
You can buy Facet or check out the rest of the Sacred Hour Collection on the Illamasqua website.
