Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Especially when you try to do simple nail art for V-day and it messes up and you have to start over. That's exactly what happened in my case (you can read what happened in this blog post), so I figured Illamasqua Scorn was a great polish to wear on V-day.
Illamasqua Scorn is a leather look, matte black polish. It is more of a satin/rubber matte black rather a chalky matte, but I like it as it still retains a pure black unlike if you put a matte top coat on black it tends to go a bit grey. This is the same finish on their Rubber finish nail polishes.
I love love love black nails. It's been such a long time since I have
worn black on it's own. Before I started doing my own acrylics and
before the nail polish obsession, every time I got my acrylics infilled
at the nail salon I got them painted black. I think I wore black polish
for easily 9 months straight! I am such a goth :P I will always love how edgy and
sophisticated it looks.
These photos show 1 coat of Nail Envy with 2 coats Scorn, no top coat, that would spoil the look! Dry time seems fairly normal, but it's hard to tell what a normal dry time is anymore since using quick dry top coat!
*sigh* I love black nails.. haha I'll stop now! Whats your favourite basic colour? Let me know!
