Illamasqua Vice Nail Polish

I'm being lazy today with a nail polish post. I'm going to blame my laziness on my lack of sleep. I'm also somewhat distracted this morning trying to decide whether a trip to Henley to look at the SpaceNK sale is a good idea. Henley is a lovely place to visit but my trips to SpaceNK are often brief as makeup shopping with three small children and my husband looking on isn't the most enjoyable experience. But shopping sounds a lot more appealing than staying at home and finding new homes for all the new toys and Christmas presents. Anyway, I digress....

Vice nail polish was released with the Illamasqua Theatre of the Nameless collection and has an unusual rubberised finish. This rubberised texture was inspired by the Boots girls of Berlin who wore different coloured rubber boots to advertise their specialty. I quite like the unusual finish, the only issue I had is that, unless you don't mind spoiling the effect, you cannot use a top coat and for me this led to a few dents in the polish as I was waiting for it to dry.




Vice is my favourite colour of the four Theatre of the Nameless polishes. This kind of reddy plum/wine colour is quite vampy and I think the rubberised finish adds a little interest. It makes a nice change from shimmer too. You can see the other three nail colours in my original post about the collection here.

The Illamasqua nail polishes cost £13.50 and all four nail colours from the collection are still available. As an aside, Illamasqua has a sale on at the moment with quite a lot of items reduced in price so it's worth a little browse if you're in the mood for a bargain.

  1. Thats a nice shade, my sort of colour.
    I think the SpaceNK sales are always meant to be better instore from what I have heard, if I had one closer I'd be running there!
    The sales online have been a bit meh this year I thought x

  2. Yes, I always heard that about the instore sales. I had a look online but nothing grabbed me enough to open my purse. I was vaguely interested in the Roccoco nail sets and I have a feeling I'd probably buy some Shu Uemura if I saw it in person.

    I don't seem to have bought anything in ages (with the excpeption of some W7 nail polishes I picked up when I was in Yorkshire). Did you get any cosmetic-y gifts for Christmas? x

  3. I wondered about the Roccoco sets as well, but then wasn't too sure if I'd use them much, I did order the spaceNK nuit set that was on sale though, I seem to get good comments when I wear that fragrance.
    My mother bought me By Terry for Christmas, I was a happy bunny :) x
