Fellow nail polish fanatics! While feeding my obsession for the loveliest nail lacquers, I have tried inexpensive drugstore nail polish brands, being pleasantly surprised.
On the other hand, I have spent a questionable amount of money on prestige brands of nail polish, and not loved it. So the questions is, do you love spending on pricey nail polish? If so, I have found a worthwhile brand of nail lacquer for you to splurge on.
In my search for a thick nail polish—one that covers and coats well, I got my pretty fingers on a few bottles of ILLAMASQUA nail polish.
Here is the claim about Illamasqua Nail Varnish:
What it does:
Leave your mark with bold, rich, vibrant colors that stand out. The formula is hard wearing and chip resistant and contains individual finishes from matte to high gloss. Apply two coats for high intensity and use with Illamasqua Nail Base Coat and Illamasqua Nail Top Coat for the perfect finish. Make a statement and talk with your hands!
I tried five Illamasqua nail varnish colors:
Illamasqua definitely has bragging rights. It passed my 2-coat-challenge. It did not chip, the colors are deep, true, and beautifully bold, as they claim.
Jo'Mina, Lament and Muse by Illamasqua demand your attention with their pop, yet still classy. DWS by Illamasqua is a polish I could wear everyday, a lovely Grey. It looks very clean but unique. Last but definitely not least, Scorn, which is the bold black. It is without any doubt my favorite of the five. Scorn by Illamasqua covers so well, all you need is one coat. But with two coats? The word magnificent comes to mind. My
Try foregoing the top coat when you apply Scorn. You are left with a breathtaking matte finish black nail polish. Of course, for those that enjoy that glossy pop, go for a shiny top coat of polish.
I can most definitely say I love Illamasqua Nail Varnishes. Overflowing with lavish lacquers, in bold, beautiful colors, Illamasqua has produced a line of nail polish with a spectrum of color that appeals to eyes.
As they claim, wearing this brand allows you to ”talk with your hands and make a statement.”
