Shades of Fall- Illamasqua Viridian

When I attended the Illamasqua event I left with two products, the first was a nail polish in ‘Viridian’ which is perfect for the autumn and winter. It is a metallic green colour which has a little bit of blue in it. As always I love Illamasqua’s simple but yet interesting packing. The quality of the nail polish is also great, you can achieve a great colour with just one coat but my rule is to always use two coats. 
However if you don’t have the money to afford this £13 nail polish there is an alternative, Barry M Racing green although it isn’t quite as blue it is still a great colour very similar to ‘Viridian.’
The next product was precision ink eyeliner in ‘Abyss’ which I will undoubtedly repurchase; the tip is very thin making application of this product really easy and gives you full control. It is also very black, dries quickly and lasts all day. The only small problem is that it isn’t very easy to remove at the end of the day however my Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser does the trick. Favourite eyeliner ever!

What do you think of green nails this autumn?

  1. I think green nails are fab for this Autumn. I do love the Illamasqua nail varnish but i can't justify the £13 price tag unfortunately! Barry M is the way forward for me i think. :)

  6. Hmmmm I'm not too sure about 13 a pot, especially when for a few more quid I could get some channel for a few more pennies.
    I think I'll stick to good ol' cheapy Barry M haha!

    Love J.

  7. That nail polish is a fab colour! Makes me think of Christmas!
