I’m already crazy about so many polish brands – Rescue Beauty Lounge, Chanel, Butter London, MAC. I shouldn’t be falling in love with another one.
But I couldn’t help it.
And you have Illamasqua to blame.
Illamasqua. And Kaydi Kat.
She sent me four awesome Illamasqua bottles.
And after swatching them, I am completely in love.
And now I’m sad because you can’t buy Illamasqua in Manila. And I ignored Illamasqua all those times I went to Sephora in the US. And I didn’t use the discount code Illamasqua sent me when I made the shortlist for the Nail Varnish Competition. Sob.
But Illamasqua and I will make up for the lost time.
I love this cement gray.
It reminds me of MAC Hello Kitty On The Prowl, another polish I love.
Yes, I can’t get enough of gray creams.
I already have too many grays.
And DWS climbed the list of my favorite grays.
DWS is a medium gray cream.
It’s super creamy.
This was two coats.
Illamasqua describes this as a deep teal blue.
And that’s exactly what it is.
I had a very long teal phase
and I thought I was over it.
But Muse changed my mind.
And you can’t blame me.
It’s creamy, smooth and pretty.
This was two coats.
DWS and Muse are pretty but these next two polishes are the reason I fell in love with Illamasqua.
Here is Illamasqua Boosh.
Illamasqua describes it as a glossy pure black.
And yes, that’s what it is.
You know about my deep love for black polish.
And before Boosh, I was happy with my favorite black polishes in the world – Chanel Black Satin and Zoya Raven.
But that’s changed.
Because Boosh is now my favorite black polish in the world.
And that’s pretty crazy because few things come between me and my beloved Chanels.
But that just shows how powerful Boosh is.
The girls on MakeupAlley were right. It is freaking awesome.
This was two coats – although they say you can get away with just one.
Ahh Boosh. So freaking glossy.
I am in awe.
I did not think Rampage would be my favorite of the bunch.
I was obsessed with green polish for a really long time but like my teal phase, I thought it was over.
But Rampage just made me crazy over green again.
And why shouldn’t I go crazy?
Look at how amazing it is.
Three coats of amazing.
I’ve read so many great things about Rampage – so many people have raved about it.
But all the raving did not prepare me for how gorgeous it really is.
The formula, the finish, the smoothness – so freaking perfect.
I wish this kind of perfection came in every color.
The pictures of the bottle prove how much I love this polish. Look at my fingerprints all over – it’s like I couldn’t stop touching it.
And I really couldn’t.
Thank you, Illamasqua, for creating the perfect green jelly.
Thank you, Kaydi Kat, for bringing Rampage into my life.
