Sneak preview of Illamasqua contest winners!

Illamasqua has chosen the winners of their polish design contest! Since they received so many amazing entries (over 6,000!) they couldn't pick just one- they chose three winners!

I have the names and pictures of the bottles below. Once I have more info I'll be sure to post it! But, WOW, these look awesome. I'm especially digging Eclipse. I can not wait to see how these look on the nail. Congratulations to all the winners!




"Shrapnel" by Loren Perry – a pink-based metallic copper inspired by the dazzling shine of a new penny and a beautiful pair of copper shoes she owns.


Raindrops by Ann Black – a creamy pale grey with a sheer silver sparkle inspired by watching raindrops running down the window while riding the monorail in Seattle. [her blog post is at http://anniedollface.blogspot.com/2010/03/one-in-50.html]




Eclipse by Dami Lawai – a deep blue/purple/grey that reflects the theatricality of a lunar eclipse.

(These are currently in production and will be available in October)

  17. Illamasqua is not available here in Canada...but if I were to buy one of these it would be Raindrops.

    Living 2 hours from Seattle, no other name for a nail polish could be more fitting:)

  18. As much as I love intense, deep colors, I think I'm over the nearly black ones. If the sun was always shining to bring out the deep, true red, blue, purple or green, it would be different but living in the gloomy PNW (don't get me wrong, I love it here), I'm really tired of people saying 'Wow, you're wearing black polish.' when I'm not. Living just south of Seattle, the gray isn't a novelty for me and while I like the Shrapnel I know it wouldn't like me. I was hoping for more intense COLOR, not neutrals, along the lines of Baptiste, Fern, Muse and Phallic. Maybe next time.

    A turkish(?) site it seems.

    Or am I wrong? Perhaps they've asked you about it..?

  24. Annie, CONGRATULATIONS!! Seriously, woohoo, I'm so happy for you, this is awesome!

    Sparris, ugh, that sucks, thanks for letting me know about these jerks :( That upsets me. They most definitely do NOT have my permission- no one has my permission to use my pictures to sell things.
