Illamasqua "Charisma" Nail Polish (Pictures)

Today I am wearing a pretty special polish.  What makes it so special, you may ask? First, this is the very first Illaasqua polish that I have ever tried. Second, it was given to me by my dear friend Tara (Polishyoftruth.com <--check out her blog if you haven't already!).  From the moment I saw a glimpse of this beautiful polish when it was first launched this fall, I knew I had to have it. 

"Charisma" is a  raspberry-wine-magenta color, with a fine golden shimmer coursing through it.  It's rich, deep color is dark, but not too vampy. This is an absolute perfect polish for those who don't want to wear red (me) during the holiday season- it's so festive and velvety:




Honestly, this is just perfect.  You need it. The color absolutely GLOWS! The formula was excellent; not too thick or thin, and covered completely in just 2 easy layers.  Illamasqua polishes are available at Sephora!

  3. This is STUNNING! You are right, I do need this color! It would coordinate with so much of my work wardrobe that I wouldn't have to plan my clothes at the same time I do my nails!!!

  4. One of my favourite reds - truly stunning! You know what this means now, right? You're hooked! Yup...once you try one Illamasqua lacquer, you get a craving FOR MORE!!! They're a fabulous brand and really deliver on all counts: quality, formula & colours/finishes. Gorgeous swatches & this shade looks amazing on you, my friend -- still can't get over the fact that you're not a red polish fan, lol!

    1. This ended up on my "list" all because of YOU and your beautiful pictures of this!!! I am definitely an instant Illamasqua fan now! I wore this for 2 days straight, which I'm sure you know as a blogger yourself, is quite a feat. It wore beautifully. I had a coworker as if it was a gel polish (on the second day, mind you) because it was just so shiny and perfect. Sigh. This is trouble (of the best kind!).
