Illamasqua - Rubber Finish Nail Varnish

Hello :)  Hope everyone is having a great weekend :)

Today I have 3 new & 1 from the previous collex Rubber Finish Nail Varnish from Illamasqua to show you.  I purchased the 3 new ones along with Throb (a blood red creme) last week online at Sephora since they aren't available at their stores yet.  Pictures are shown without a topcoat.

a coat of Faux Pas - a blue violet - this is from an older collex
Then we have the 3 new ones.  First up 2 coats of Serenity - a bright turqoise
2 coats of Aorta - a scarlet red
 2 coats of Prosperity - a rich purple
These are basically matte with a rubber-like look.  Faux Pas has the best formula out of the 4 & was perfectly opaque in 1 coat.  The 1st coat on the new ones was a bit streaky but the 2nd coat smoothed it out, which wasn't so bad but I'm used to Illamasqua being one coaters.  Drying time took a tad longer than usual.  You may find these over at Sephora.com.

What do you think of these?

Thank you for dropping by.

Vicky, it may be a location thing. My Sephora out here also had the new ones in stock. :-) I picked up Sky and Taint. I hope that they look as good on me as they do on you!

Vicky Boombastic Nails said...

Yea probably so, but I will wait til they hit the stores because I'm unsure about the pink and green. I always wondered about Taint ... how do you like the color on you? thx Elaine :)
