This is the third of the Illamasqua pastels I’m wearing this month, and possibly the one I was most looking forward to trying. Illamasqua Nudge (Pastel Nail Varnishes, Spring 2010) is a pastel pale turquoise creme:
Picture taken in natural light. This applied well in three coats. Compared to the other two I’ve tried from this collection, the formula doesn’t seem to be as whited-out. But it still has that nice stark, pastel quality. And this is an amazingly pretty color! It’s so adorably sweet-looking. I’ve gone on about how much I love teals, and I also really love turquoises. I know it’s much paler, but it makes me think of Tiffany Blue. It’s a soft type of color, but since it’s a pastel, it has a strong presence on the nail. I paired this with Barielle Sweet Addiction on my toes.
