I was so happy to get this as a christmas pressie. Illamasqua do some glorious nail polish shades, and this is no different. ‘Obsess’ is a bright, smack, bang WALLOP hot fuschia pink, with a *hint* of purple undertone. Illamasqua polishes are super-easy to apply and have really good, high colour formulas. The finish on this is also not a really high shine..not quite a semi-matte but somehwere near, which I love, if you want it even glossier then topcoat it but I like it how it is. Even without a topcoat it has lasted really well.
I have a lot of bright/hot pinks in my nail polish collection but actually nothing at all to this which is suprising, but good! I love Illamasqua the brand, their ethos, beliefs and the amazing creatives behind the brand. The crazy dude who is head of product development, David Horne, taught me many years ago at makeup school, so I also feel immediately bonded to the brand. A bold statement, but this has been my favourite brand of 2012 and I am slowly building it into my kit. I have been invited to attend some of the masterclasses so really can’t wait to get more involved with this and see more into the makeup world.
I also can’t wait to see and try the Illamasqua ‘rubber’ nail polishes, which are coming out soon.
Illamasqua polishes are £13.50 www.illamasqua.com
