Illamasqua Viridian

Hi all!

A quick post for today as I wanted to get this swatch out whilst the Illamasqua Glitterati/Viridian duo is still current. If you have any concerns about Viridian not being a gorgeous polish, then you don't need to worry. It is a gorgeous peacock green with slight shimmer that just glows when the sun hits it.

Viridian, like all other Illamasqua polishes goes on in an easy 2 coats. These swatches are 1 coat OPI Nail Envy, 2 coats Viridian and 1 coat Seche Vite.

You can see a slight blue looking duochrome in the bottle at the right angle, but it doesn't translate onto the nail. This is probably still one of my favourite greens and one of the first Illamasqua's I owned!


Viridian is currently for sale in the duo with Glitterati. It can be purchased from Illamasqua online, Myer online and at your local Ilamasqua counter. Check their website for your closest one.


  1. Illamasqua nail-polishes are amazing! :D I am photographing "Baptiste" today and "Snap" this weekend. It will be so fun to do a review on them. :)

    1. I knowwwwwww. I love them so much! I love Baptise, such a stunning colour and Snap is great for stamping I've discovered! I cant wait to see your reviews :D

  2. Your nails are looking so long!!!
