I do love a good red, and that’s a year-round thing that goes for nail polish and lips alike. But the colder months are when you can really show off ANY shade of red, not just something bright and hot.
That’s why, for Makeup Wars Fall Manicure I’ve decided to feature the Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Boudicca, which is available exclusively at Bloomingdale’s (yes, Bloomingdale’s has Illamasqua now – WOOOO!)
What Bloomingdale’s says about Illamasqua Boudicca Nail Varnish:
Boudicca was the wife of Prasutagus, the ruler of the British Iceni tribe who led an uprising against the occupying forces of the Roman Empire. The Iceni were based in the region of Britain now called East Anglia. When the Romans settled in the south of England in 43 AD, they made an agreement with Prasutagus that he would be allowed to continue as ruler of the Iceni. However, when Prasutagus died, the Roman attitude to the Iceni people changed and Boudicca took up her role as the Warrior Queen.
Here, Illamasqua pays homage to this brave and stubborn British warrior, celebrating her long flame-red hair with this color-intense, long-lasting, flame-red nail varnish—available exclusively at Bloomingdale’s.
Boudicca (other than being an ancient British queen) is definitely bright and clearly hot, but this fire engine red is also festive in that it has an amazing amount of shimmer. It’s hard to tell from the photo, but it’s absolutely loaded.
The formula is fully opaque in one coat and paints on as smooth as silk.
Illamasqua Boudicca Nail Varnish retails for $17.00 and is available exclusively at Bloomingdale’s. This nail polish is limited edition.
