A while ago, I attended the launch of Illamasqua’s Theatre Of The Nameless collection. During the event, we were told that the nail polish collection were inspired by the Berlin Boot Girls in the 1920’s era. Their boots were colour-coded according to their “specialty”…if you know what I mean *wink wink* – and the great thing is that the nail polish follows the colour and has a waxy rubber finish too. I had never tried any Illamasqua products before this event, so I was jumping with joy when I left with a goodie bag and it had one of the nail polishes – Illamasqua Faux Pas.
Illamasqua Faux Pas is a beautiful deep violet and I have received plenty of compliments from wearing this. Seeing as I’m a nail polish noob, it took me a couple of tries before I learnt how to apply it without it looking patchy.
The waxy rubber finish is so cool…but I wanted it to be chip-free for days so I used a top coat over it which made it look pretty too.
For some bizarre reason, capturing the true essence of the purple was really difficult so don’t trust the shade you see here.
If you want to see the entire nail polish collection, let me point you in the direction right here.

And keep your eyes open for the other beauty I got in the goodie bag.
