Hi there! I’m so glad the weekend is here! I’m in desperate need of some shut eye!
Did any of you miss nail polish posts? It feels like I haven’t done one in a very long time! Today’s polish is the stunning jewel-toned Illamasqua Viridian!
Illamasqua Viridian is a complex colour that’s partly a metallic teal and dark green. Stay with me here… You can pick up a bit of blue duochrome in the bottle but that’s where it stays. On the nail, it’s a darker green with microshimmer and depth.
On close inspection, you can spot a really nice mix of green and blue shimmer. I wish it was a bit more prominent though. Depending on the lighting, this leans more towards teal or a darker green.
The formula checks all boxes, it applies in one-two coats, very even and glossy finish. Stays on well for 5 days but longer if you use a topcoat. I’ve only ever experienced tip wear towards the end.
I picked this up from the Illasmaqua website during one of their sales, also bought Phallic along with this. You get 15ml of product for £13 ~ Rs. 1535.
There aren’t too many dupes of this, but Sally Hansen Jet Set Jade comes very close.
