Illamasqua Rampage

Illamasqua Rampage.

Here's that other awesome green I mentioned in the last post. The name of the color is Rampage, which is also what I was about to go on if someone didn't release a deep forest green soon! This is a cooler shade of green which is a good thing because it doesn't make my hands look red like warmer green shades do.

This shade has me speechless. I could rave about it all day. Everything about it is excellent. The shade, the finish, the durability, the application, the brush, the bottle.... This is about as close to perfect as it gets.

Worth pointing out- the second picture (the indoor picture) was taken after two days of wear. Maybe just a hint of tipwear- I'm impressed.

This color has instantly skyrocketed to number two in my list of favorite greens- number one is, of course, the notorious NARS Zulu. Unfortunately, Rampage is not a dupe for Zulu but it's still similar. I am working on a comparison of these new dark greens against Zulu and Rescue Beauty Lounge Recycle, so I'll be sure to post the pictures as soon as I get a chance.

I have three more ridiculously awesome polishes from Illamasqua to post, so stay tuned for those.

May this be the year of the greens!


  1. I was looking at the Nail Juice blog and there were promo pics from the OPI Spain Collection--featuring a dark green!

    Rampage looks really great.

  2. Woo hoo! First comment!

    Another stunning green! It looks hot on you, Scrangie. Yes, please do a comparison of dark greens for us (including Green Goblin).

  3. Dang, firepail said what I meant to say! I'm super excited about that. :)

  4. pretty but RBL is a 1-2 coater.

    how is the wear? i do get great wear w/ rbl but it is $$$.

    cant wait to see them side by side

  5. Scrangie, if you have Hot Topic Kelly Green, could you please include this one in your comparison swatches too? Thanks a bunch! :)

  6. Love, love, love, love, love it!

    That's all I can say!

  7. Wow, that is stunning! I can see why you love it so. Looking forward to seeing the rest.

  8. It's like we're all finally being heard on our pilgrimage for green! For your amusement, I have been struggling to pronounce Illamasqua. I know how to say it correctly, but I can't stop myself from thinking: ill-llama-esque. I have no idea why.

  9. I have just been to the Illamasqua website.
    I may have died and gone to gothic heaven.

  10. Love your blog!!!

    OCC cosmetics (
    makes a very dark green polish, appropriately called 'BLACKBOARD'as well. If you were to ever review it I would be so grateful! I've been eyeing it for some time now.

  11. Just wonderfull! I can't wait for the green comparision!!!

  12. Oh yes! That is just beautiful! ^^ And I'm really looking forward to the comparisons, I just love all the mentioned colors, but I have none! Damn you Americans who have everything... ;) And as usual your beautiful nails make me weep with joy! Haha. <3

  13. I love gorgeous greens. Who knew?


  14. isn't illamasqua amazing??? it's so nice to finally have a fantastic UK based polish company.

  15. PS - illamasqua have a fantastic camo green colour that you should try out as well!

  16. It is so beautiful. I can't wait to get it.

  17. This is beyond gorgeous, just looked at the site as well. Wow. jaw-dropping colors.

  18. Firepail, I am SO EXCITED about that OPI Spain collection!!

    Dana, haha! :) Thank you! Posted it today :)

    Faith, awesome :)

    Anonymous, this is a 1-2 coater too depending on how thick your coats are. Wear is awesome, barely any tipwear and no chipping after two days.

    Mrs. TK, I do have it, but I don't know where it is! lol I'm sorry, I was looking for it for about a half an hour before I did my comparison but I have no clue where it went!

    Lina-Elvira, I feel the same way :)

    Helen, me too! Times a million!

    Mary, isn't it? I'm so happy it exists!

    Tarotbydiana, LOL!!! I have been trying to figure it out, myself... Is it something like eel-la-mah-ska? Close? >.<


    Anonymous, ooh, thanks for the tip, I'm checking them out!

    Alice, posted today :)

    Crotchfairy, wholeheartedly agree!

    Feline-alizarine, awwe I'm sorry! But at least most of this stuff can be ordered online and shipped abroad :)

    Scott, they're wearing you down, aren't they? You know you love them! ;-)

    SEH, yes yes yes! They are *so* awesome, I am absolutely in love with everything about them now! I did try that fab army green color and I'll post pics soon :)

    Rmcandlelight, it's soooooo dreamy!
