Illamasqua Nail Varnish (Purity)


RATING (out of 5 stars): 1 star 

COST: $14 

THE SKINNY: I am pretty sure I set a new record for least amount of time a beauty product actually spent on my body. In less than an hour I painted my toenails and then removed the polish. And it was not because of the color.

It was the product. Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Purity came in my August Glossybox.

The color was a pretty, matte peach.

The problem started when I tried to apply it. The square top made smoothing on the polish difficult.

But then it just seemed to never dry properly. After an hour, it was still soft and even the lightest touch created an indentation in the polish. That was enough for me and I removed it. 

KEEP OR TOSS: Toss. This is an expensive product that is not worth your money or time.

CHECK IT OUT: Maybe my sample was just old. Have you tried this and had better results? Illamasqua Nail Varnish is available in 45 different colors from Sephora or buy direct from Illamasqua in the UK.
