Nails of the Day: Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Alarm
Hi, girls! Do you remember the Illamasqua nail varnish competition? They already have 3 winners and the nail polishes will be available in Fall (2 are amazing and one I don’t like at all).
Myself, as a person who also entered got an e-mail from the brand telling that I made it to top 50 among 6000 entries. This made me kind of excited:)
Since those nail polishes are not available yet I’ve picked from those that already exist. I’ve picked the Alarm nail varnish( £13), which is described as “bright flame red, glossy finish.”
Applied on the nails
The best thing about the products is that the shade is opaque even with 1 coat(see on the photo). It also stays on for quite a long time and is chip resistant. I also love the design of the bottle. One more plus is the brush which is easy to use.
Also I like the shade, obviously. It’s not a classic red( and I have plenty of those) but I’d describe it as reddish -orange shade.
I have to say that I am happy with my purchase and I will be sure to get other shades. Speaking of Illamasqua, I can’t wait to see their new lip glosses which will be available in Fall.
