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.

  4. Jen says:

    Lovely but not enough of an edge to tempt me to part with that sort of money.

  5. Duvessa says:

    Nice colour, makes me wish it was summer already 😛

  6. Nat says:

    Such a pretty summery shade!

  7. Lillian says:

    This is on my wishlist, it’s such a pretty colour! I think it looks fine with your skin but I agree i bet it look look amazing on darker skin.

  8. Leah says:

    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.

    Beautiful colour – Reminds me of Models Own Peach Sherbet! :)

  10. Rachel Neill says:

    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.

  11. Silva says:

    What an incredibly gorgeous color! I love peach :)

  12. Ali says:

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

  13. vonnie says:

    that is a truly gorgeous color! i love how vivid it is…they have great nail polishes, i have a grey by that brand

  14. gio says:

  15. Gemx says:

    It’s gorgeous, I really want this colour!

  16. Becky says:

    Love this, it would be brilliant for the summer.

  17. Sylvie says:

    No way I could pull this off, but I want it so bad! Such a summery colour xx

  18. Tass says:

    Beauuuutiful xx

  19. Katie says:

    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.

  20. Vijaya says:

    I don’t own a peach yet. This may need to be added to my collection. <3
