It is officially fall here, well basically winter. It always feels like we completely skip fall and move straight to winter in New York City. Ah well... anyway, I have found my new favorite nail polish color. I always am on the hunt for the perfect deep red with the perfect about of shimmer.
Alex from Illamasqua recently sent me a nail polish to check out, Scarab from the new Art of Darkness collection.
I am OBSESSED! Ever since I got it (about a month ago) I have been wearing it on my nails and toes. It is perfect for the colder months. I would describe it has a deep cranberry with a metallic finish. I am very picky about nail polishes, I like a shimmer but I want the shimmer to read metallic and not just shimmer and Illamasqua has achieved this. This is actually really hard to find in a nail polish. This is THE perfect holiday color.
The formula is great, creamy and perfectly thick without being goopy. I hate very thin nail polish. You only need 1 coat but I like to use 2 coats for full opacity.
$14 is a bit pricey for nail polish, but not as expensive as Chanel, Mac I believe is $11 but this blows MAC's quality out of the water. If you want to splurge on an amazing deep red, this is your best best!
