Illamasqua Toxic Nature Collection – Purity Nail Polish NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 16 - 2011

The final item I received in my goody bag from the recent Illamasqua Blogger Event was this nail polish…

Don’t be fooled by its demure-sounding name, Purity* is about as vivid as a peach can get!  Not entirely suited to my skintone, I can see this looking freakin’ amazing on dark-skinned sisters.  It’s creamy, opaque and glossy.

The formula was great and the above image shows two coats… longevity has been impressive as I’m on day four of wear and can only see a tiny nick on the tip of one of my fingers…. not even a proper chip and barely any tip wear at all!

A perfect peach of a polish that is guaranteed to turn heads all Summer.

Illamasqua’s polishes may be a little pricey at £13.50, but they back it up with quality formulas and exciting shades.

Illamasqua Purity Nail Polish is available now to buy on counter, instore or online.

    That’s so pretty! I’m digging this whole neutral thing (except I typed ‘dogging’……ahem!) and that is love-r-ly!

    I’ve started going swimming and I think my nails are going to go the same way as yours in this pic – short! You can use a swimming cap to protect your hair, goggles for your eyes, but sod all to protect your nails in the chlorine. GAH! They’ve already started going flaky and horrible.

    I think you are like me, I have a peach shade on my nails at the mo and I don’t think it suits my fair skin either. Nice shade but as you say one for the tanned/olive/darker skinned ladies.

    A little too heavy looking for summer for me. I prefer NARS Orgasm for a peach polish.
    Thanks for the photo – helpful!

    I read this post a few days ago, and I’ve been thinking about this gorgeous polish ever since. I love, love, LOVE this colour. It’s far too pricey for me, so I’ll be keeping my eye out for a cheaper dupe.
