NOTD: Illamasqua – Viridian

Illamasqua Viridian6Nail of the Day: I’ve only tried a few Illamasqua nail lacquers, but I absolutely adore them. I haven’t tried a bad one yet and Viridian is no exception. Viridian is a cool blue-toned, shimmery emerald green shade. It has an extremely fine shimmer that reflects beautifully in the sunlight, but is otherwise very subtle. It is definitely a dark color that isn’t appropriate for all occasions, but I think works especially well during cold, dark winter months. Although I’ve been known to wear dark nail polish any time of year :) Viridian applies very smoothly and evenly, dries reasonably quickly, and is fully opaque in two layers. I’ve found it lasts nearly a week, chip-free even without a base and top coat, but I usually prefer to use at least a base coat to prevent my nails from staining.

Do you wear dark nail polish on your hands? Have you tried Illamasqua’s nail lacquers? Let me know what you think in the comments below!
