In my August 2012 GlossyBox, I received Illamasqua Nail Varnish.
Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Purity
Where to purchase: Sephora and online at sephora.com
Price: $14 for 0.5 fl oz/ 15 mL
Made in Australia
Description on the back: Conceived amidst the dark drama of 1920s Berlin, developed by professional make-up artists, embraced by alternative cultures, made by a unique British brand. Worn by those who refuse to be everybody.
Leave your mark with bold, rich, vibrant colours. Hardwearing and chip-resistant with individual finishes from matt to high gloss. Apply two coats for intensity and use with Illamasqua Nail Base Coat and Illamasqua Nail Top Coat for the perfect finish. Talk with your hands and make a statement.
If you can tell, I loved the color but that's not the only thing. Before I talk about the product itself, let me tell you about the brush.
Now you know what I think about the brush and color. The packaging is decent. I like how simple and classic it looks. The only thing I wasn't keen on is the lid. Whenever I close it tight, it wasn't aligned with the bottle. If you look at the picture with the China Glaze, you can see the lid not in alignment with the bottle.
I was really happy how long the nail polish lasted before it started chipping, a week and a half. That's pretty decent for a regular nail polish.
* Simple, classic, and sturdy bottle.
* Middle sized brush.
* Gorgeous color.
* Thick consistency.
* Long lasting.
* Takes longer than a week before it starts chipping.
* The lid does not aligned with the bottle.
Would I repurchase: Yes!
