Illamasqua nail varnish* - Swinger £13.50
Illamasqua has done it once again and hit us with a sultry new collection, Naked Strangers, which is a celebration of naked flesh and wild fantasies with a orgy of exposed nude tones and rich licks of gold. As always, Illamasqua shrouds this collection with an elaborate narrative introducing Naked Strangers as "...the human edge between romance and permissive intimacy...a step beyond control, a step past the edge and a collection of gilded moments upon the tip of sensation."- David Horne, Director of Product Development.
This collection could possibly be dubbed as one of Illamasqua's most wearable ventures, with the launch of two soft, neutral-toned powder blushers, a sheer and intense lipgloss and a trio of risque nail varnishes - Monogamous (creamy flesh pink) Faithful (coppered metal) and Swinger.
Swinger is a glorious glistening platinum gold with ever changing facets depending on the angle and lightening. Sometimes it is a rich, uninhibited gold shining brightly, other times it is a dark, murky gold with a slightly grungy-green tinge to it to. It is a true opaque shade after just one application, and although it can appear a little gritty on the surface, a swift top coat can quickly sort that out.
Naked Strangers is available online exclusively for registered members from Wednesday 23rd May. It is then available nationwide from 31st May 2012.
