Illamasqua Poke

Today, no nail art, but pictures of one of the most beautiful purples I have ever seen! I got this a while ago, when it was on sale at and I absolutely don't regret spending money on this beauty!
This is Illamasqua Poke, a really beautiful red-tinted purple.

Application was really nice. I applied two coats for the coverage on these pictures. No brush strokes and it is quite shiny on its own. I did apply topcoat nevertheless. I just love the extra shine it adds. Drying time is okay too. Aaah, I just love this color! Originally, I got it in search of a more blue-tinted purple.. not exactly what I was looking for, but still... sooo pretty! I wore this with no nail art at all! I rarely do wear polish just by itself, but Poke really was beautiful enough that I didn't feel like something was missing.

Illamasqua Poke has this very beautiful fine silver and blue shimmer that makes it look a bit frosty. My camera didn't want to pick it up properly though. I guess you can see a hint of it on the second picture. Maybe the shimmer is why I love it so much... I just have a thing for shimmery polishes.

What do you think? Suggestions for a blue-tinted violet cream polish anyone?
