Illamasqua Sale- Nail Varnish in Elope

Now that the Illamasqua Sale is up and running I thought I would share with you my personal favourite item. Nail Varnish in Elope originally retailing at 13.50 is now available for ten pounds!

Reviewed by Make Up Blogegr; Polish or Perish, stating “It’s just a really fantastic polish, and always draws compliments. It was responsible for me getting a free doughnut in Krispy Kreme the last time I wore it, so a definite winner in my book.”

Nail Varnish is a must have in my opinion, especially when you are constantly using your hands you should always have that extra bit of colour to make even the dullest of handy work glamorous!

Elope is described as an Emerald Green and what a fitting name to such a colour! It shines like the jewel itself and radiates a beautiful, sleek and shiny finish.

A lot of people may be intimated by this colour, and I myself have never been the best fan of green, but I was feel daring and in the Illamasqua mood (especially) today, and aren’t I glad I was! The colour is rare and I think goes brilliantly with my cream blouse. I’d definitely recommend this Nail Varnish with simple coloured clothing to truly allow the green to shine through. Two coats later and the matt finish is stunning! The thick gloss only adds to beauty of this colour. The colour is unusual, yes, but in true Illamasqua style who says that’s a bad thing? I LOVE how different it looks and a colour, before working for Illamasqua, I probably wouldn’t have tried, but now I’m definitely starting to embrace trying new things.

I’ve had it on since this morning and of course being the busy bee that I am I’ve been hard at work typing away, dealing with post, making cups of tea etc! And my nails still look exactly the same, as when I painted them the chip resist is phenomenal!

Here is a little picture I took to show you what the colour looks like on me (pardon the poor cuticles)

Everyone else in the office is certainly green with envy over with this one!
