Illamasqua Rubber Brights Nail Polish in Serenity

We all know I'm a drugstore bargain queen so Illamasqua is a brand that I don't touch. However, in all honesty, I LOVE how funky and whack their collections and products can get!

Illamasqua Rubber Brights Nail Varnishes

So when they released their Rubber Brights nail lacquers, I thought "what?! Must get!"....... Hence, here I am with one called 'Serenity' which is described to be a "bright turquoise".

Serenity is my very first turqouise nail colour and I must say that I am LOVING the colour, the brightness AND the semi-matte finish that comes along with it! Although described with a "rubber-like finish", I honestly didn't find any difference in how it felt OR looked in comparison to my other semi-matte lacquers.... so that's a bit of a dud.

In the photos, I'm wearing three average coats since it was a tad streaky even after two coats. The third coat was quite necessary (in my opinion) since it did smooth out the streakiness and gave the manicure a full opaque look.

I've worn this for 8 days and I did find that the semi-matte finish did rub off after a few days, but it's quite chip resistant. Eight days of wear and I've only got minor tip wear, so you can say that I am impressed!

All in all, despite its over-marketed "rubber" finish, I still really like 'Serenity' for its brightness, unique colour and long wearing power. This one's definitely going to my list of favourite blue nail polishes, and I'm hoping that there's a cheaper dupe around since it IS from limited edition range and comes with a hefty price tag.

What do you think of these "Rubber Brights" nail varnishes?
Yay or nay?

  3. That staying power is amazing, wow! Although, I'm not too much a fan of matte or 'rubber' nail polishes, haha. Might give this a go with a glossy top coat. And you're right, the colour is so beautiful!


  4. Such a lovely and beautiful color for the season. I'm usually not a huge fan of matte polishes, but this one looks really nice.
