In the previous post I told you about my visit at Illamasqua's new store in London and the new Art of Darkness collection. So today I've got for you swatches of nail polish in Viridian and Liquid Metal in Resolute I brought from this event.
Viridian - shimmery deep emerald green. It is a really beautiful shade, fully opaque in two coats and non-streaky. I had a little problem with application due to quite fast drying but it wasn't bad as with OPI suede polishes. The brush is slim but nice to work with. Right now I have polish the third day and there is no chipping at all. Bottle is usual 15 ml and costs £13.
Resolute - metallic ruby red cream. It is a multi-purpose and highly pigmented product. it can be used on eyes, cheeks, body or lips. I saw Alex Box use it as a lipstick on one of the models at the event so I tried how it will look on me. Not as good :-/ But back to the product - it is nice and creamy and not cupcakey. It can be use as a base for eyeshadow and it is suitable for layering. I plan to buy the palette of four other liquid metals (gold, silver, bronze, pewter) because this one is really nice. Retail price is £17 per 8 ml and I think there is no chance I would use up the whole product as you need only a little.
