Today I would like to show you a gorgeous polish I received in a swap I did with sweet Jo from Wales. If you don't know her, you should check her blog. It's not very much nail related but it is fun! This is Scarab and it's by one of my most favorite brands - illamasqua.
Anyway, Scarab is a gorgeous deep red, that under different lighting changes it's look from black to dark red to dark orange and it has these beautiful orange shimmers inside of it. If you are very careful, you can settle for one coat. But I think two coats does the best for this beauty. Illamasqua has a very nice brush. A little too thin for my liking, but it spreads nicely on the nail and you usually don't need any more then two, maybe three strokes. It dries quickly to a gorgeous shiny creme and it is the most vampy polish I have at the moment, and I simply adore it!
So why am I talking so much? Let me just show you. All pictures show two coats of Scarab and one coat of Chic - a local brand quick dry & top coat.
