Swatches: Illamasqua Gothiqua

It's Mani Monday post! Well.. not really. My nails are actually naked right now, and have been since this morning. I just don't feel like painting them even though I want to (*gasp*). But I have swatches that I did a couple days ago and been meaning to post. 
This is one of my lemmings since I first saw the pic on instagram (@ommorphia) months ago. I gave it a lot of thought, a little too much until it was no longer for sale. But then I was lucky enough to snagged it on a blog sale. Yay! Illamasqua Gothiqua was a limited edition exclusive shade for The Bay Canada, and a part of The Sacred Hour collection.

Gothiqua is a plum purple with blue shimmer. The shimmer looks pretty intense on the bottle, unfortunately it doesn't show much on the nail. Bummer. But I like it anyway, it looks very flattering on me. For some reason, on me, it doesn't look as purple as the swatches I've seen.  As usual, Illamasqua formula does not disappoint. I used 2 coats and top coat for my swatches.
