New Spring Nail Polish Alert: Illamasqua Toxic Nature
Illamasqua, the UK makeup brand known for its bright colors and eccentric artist-cum-Creative Director Alex Box, is gaining a bit of a foothold here in the US. It’s sold at Sephora and has been blessed by Pat Field.
With the release of its new Toxic Nature nail lacquers--coming in April--we suspect the brand will pick up more fans.
There are five colors in the collection and they’re inspired by “nature fighting back against the genetically modified society that plunders it.” Don’t get too caught up in the message; the colors are really cool.
It's now officially March, which means that spring is finally close. And much like the leaves and flower buds, new spring nail polishes are popping up everywhere.
Check out the whopping 23 collections we dug up.
While laying on the beach reading the August Allure this weekend, I came across a small paragraph that made me say, “Oooh, new nail polish gimmick!” A little digging revealed that a new polish trend is in the making.
Sick of crackle finishes? Try magnets! The UK nail brand Nails Inc. is releasing a polish called Magnetic Attraction. The three metallic shades--gold, gray, and purple--contain iron powder and come with a magnet embedded in the cap. You apply a coat of the polish to each individual nail, then hold the magnet over your nail to get a rippled effect. These polishes will be available in October. Nails Inc. has been expanding its market in the US, so hopefully we’ll see it stateside. In the meantime, you can try to win it from Allure here. (Allure gives away some amazing swag. Definitely check out their “free stuff” link on a monthly basis.)
Illamasqua, the UK beauty brand known for innovative and often peculiar color palettes (and this amazing speckle polish), just released a summer makeup collection that includes polishes that glow in UV light. Yes, you can now turn your fingertips into club-worthy glow sticks.
