Makeup Monday | Illamasqua Nail Varnish

I've always loved the idea of Illamasqua, with their super pigmented and bright colours and of course their policy on animal testing which is always a huge positive! So when I saw these little guys going super cheap in TkMaxx I had to grab them. First off, I love the packaging. I really like the black tops with the symbol on the top and rectangle shaped bottles, and the boxes saying "makeup for your alter ego". The colours are really good, you need maybe two layers to get a really vibrant colour, but if you're going for something less intense then one layer will definitely do the job. The black and glitter flecked colours (Scarce and Fragile) are really cool, they give a little something else to just plain colours, something to catch the eye. My favourite would have to be the green colour (Kink) it's just so strong and vibrant and a really beautiful jewel tone. These are available in some TkMaxx stores and online at http://www.illamasqua.com/shop/nails/
