Illamasqua – Nightfall

I have a polish that was only released in my city – how exciting.  Nightfall was only available for 4 days in our nearby shopping centre.  Its basically a more gold version of Creator.

Lets head straight to the pictures.

OK, first things first.  The formula is quite thick, but spreads and levels well.  I did two coats over a base of Glisten & Glow Stuck on Blu!.  It is packed with gold particles.  The gold is quite dark, its not a yellow gold at all.  Drying time was quick too and two coats provided perfect coverage.  To bring on the extra bling, I added a good coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl top coat, that really helps to bring on the shine.

As with all Illamasqua polishes, you can pop off the black cap revealing a smaller ridged lid.  The brush is thin but adequate for painting nails.  I was able to do three strokes on most nails and two on my smaller ones.  A comment on  wear, by the end of 24 hours I had significant chips on at least three nails.  I’ve not used my G & G HK Girl on Illamasqua before so I am not sure if that might be why.  In the past I have used Seche Vite to great effect.  Next time I will try a different top coat to see if that makes a difference.

What do we think about limited editions such as these?  A gimmick too far?

Illamasqua is readily available across the UK, both in certain stores and online.  Nail Polishes retail around the £14.50 mark.

  1. OK I know I’m so sad for thinking so far ahead but this is so sophisticated/sexy varnish for Christmas parties – shame about the chipping, be interesting to see how it fares with a different top coat!


    • Oh that is a great idea, its very Christmas like. I think its probably a combo of base and top coat that resulted in the chipping, it made it very bottle. I will try it with something else, either Seche or Dior Gel Top Coat.

      Thanks for your comment
