I'm a bit of a nail varnish magpie; I love bright as well as subtle colours, but a just-bought nail varnish does something to me.
Illasmasqua is the beauty company who have taken the industry by storm, their fearless approach to make up is refreshing, as mirrored by their nail range.
I have a handful of their nail colours, in white, dark red acid yellow, pastel nude, and fuschia purple. The purple one is my favourite.
The brush coats the nail well, and after just the one application it leaves your pinkies, pretty and painted.
To buy Illamasqua's nail lacquers you'll have to visit their website because you can only buy them in Selfridges.
At £11.00 a pop they aren't cheap, but the varnishes have longevity, don't dry up (unlike many others I've tried), and are available in such a variety of shades you'll wonder why you didn't discover them sooner.
