Illamasqua Velocity

Illamasqua:

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

Ok, I am exagerrating but only by a bit. haha. This is my second Illamasqua purchase and I am falling hard…yes, hard. It’s so difficult to figure out what nail polish to buy when I am perusing sephora.com so this was an impulse buy–and I don’t regret it one bit. Illamasqua calls this polish a dusky grey-purple with a glossy finish and it is very fitting.

 

I am pretty sure that I have something close to this polish already but the formula is really amazing. Sometimes it’s all about the formula. Since I’m still an Illamasqua newbie, what other colors can you suggest? I can see my obsession beginning….

  1. Pretty!

    This kinda reminds me of OPI "Planks a Lot" or whatever from the Pirates Collection last year. Lovely, dusky, come-hither color ^_^

  2. Nice color! Y'know what? Before you return those messy bottles you should swatch them!! Consider it a "try before you buy" opportunity! πŸ˜€

  4. This looks great! I don't have this colour, but it might have to go on my wishlist now… My favourite Illamasqua polishes, at least that I've tried, are Muse (teal creme), Jo'mina (bright lilac creme) and Baptiste (deep purple shimmer). I highly recommend any of those three!

  7. Oh, man…Illamasqua polishes are amazeballs. I have Nomad (mintish green) and Stance (bright magenta) and they are both phenomenal. I have been considering JoMina for a while, but haven't taken the plunge yet.

    1. I love Nomad! I thought about getting Stance but I ended up getting a different one. I really do love Illamasqua polishes and they are more reasonably priced than other brands that I drool over sometimes.
