Illamasqua believe make up should be about drama, accentuation and self-expression: if you want the bold and the beautiful they are the brand for you. This season they have brought us Rubber Brights nail polish, the limited edition collection that leaves your nails with a matte rubber effect. As well as the soft shine finish this range benefits from easy buildable coverage, durability and chip resistance.
Finding inspiration from 1920s Berlin and the cultural liberation that was born after the First World War, Illamasqua referenced the dominatrix rubber booted showgirls of the period. Designed in a series of bright colours from candy apple green to bright turquoise and scarlet red, the six-piece collection is ideal for those who want strong pigmentation and a variation on the traditional notion of nail polish.
