Illamasqua Rubber Brights Nail Varnishes
Serenity is my very first turqouise nail colour and I must say that I am LOVING the colour, the brightness AND the semi-matte finish that comes along with it! Although described with a "rubber-like finish", I honestly didn't find any difference in how it felt OR looked in comparison to my other semi-matte lacquers.... so that's a bit of a dud.
In the photos, I'm wearing three average coats since it was a tad streaky even after two coats. The third coat was quite necessary (in my opinion) since it did smooth out the streakiness and gave the manicure a full opaque look.
I've worn this for 8 days and I did find that the semi-matte finish did rub off after a few days, but it's quite chip resistant. Eight days of wear and I've only got minor tip wear, so you can say that I am impressed!
All in all, despite its over-marketed "rubber" finish, I still really like 'Serenity' for its brightness, unique colour and long wearing power. This one's definitely going to my list of favourite blue nail polishes, and I'm hoping that there's a cheaper dupe around since it IS from limited edition range and comes with a hefty price tag.
What do you think of these "Rubber Brights" nail varnishes?Yay or nay?
