Illamasqua Venous Nail Varnish | Review

Illamasqua venous review
You know something everyone, it has been absolute ages since I last did a whats on my nails post. 
It is not like I haven't been wearing anything on my nails or something like that its just that I reused the ones I had or it has totally slipped my mind to do a blog post about them. I think I have about roughly 60 nail varnishes at the moment and I do have a few favourite brands but Illamasqua are one of favourites because the quality of the products and also the shades available. 

Illamasqua is beauty brand that I start using back in 2014 when I first started blogging, they have many different makeup products including makeup, perfume and also makeup brushes and lots of other things too. 

The nail varnishes from Illamasqua cost about £14.50 but I managed to find this one in TK Maxx for the bargain price of £3.99. They are available on the website and also at Illamasqua counters around the UK.

Illamasqua Venous Nail varnish
Illamasqua Venous is a bold opaque blue/green shade and you get a decent amount of product which is 15ml.The formula is award winning at being chip resistant and hardwearing. They advise two coats for a more bold and intense look. Another thing about Illamasqua nail varnishes is they are vegan friendly and like the brand they are cruelty free too.

My Thoughts
Before applying this I like to make sure my nails are 100% clean which no previous nail varnish on as it gives the nail varnish a much smoother; after that I like to put on a hand cream. The brush on this is a good size so its quite easy to put the nail varnish on without making a mess around the nails. I found that one coat of Venous is enough for an opaque look, it also had a nice shine to it too. It does recommend using a topcoat but I don't use one because I find Illamasuqa nail varnishes last just as well without them.

I have no cons to say about Venous, it is the perfect blue/green shade and also very long lasting. I totally recommend try Illamasqua nail varnishes.

Available online and also at illamasuqa counters
