Illamasqua - Whack

Spring is only around the corner so I thought I'd show you one of the brightest polishes I own.

Illamasqua describe Whack as a vivid tangerine orange and they are spot on. It's almost neon! The name is fitting, too. I've seen some photos online in which it looks red but I can assure you this is orange.

My experience with this brand has been limited but excellent so far. The brush is good, the formula is great and the finish is smooth and glossy. I've worn this shade only for a day or two and that was long enough as I kept staring at my hands.

Not one for the faint of heart or the conservative office environment, save this colour for a day when you're full of confidence. This product will certainly lift any outfit!

    1. Gracias! Con este color no podés pasar desapercibida :-)

  2. Que divinura!!!! Los cremes de Illamasqua están en mi wishlist desde hace mucho, se ven siempre tan perfectos y brillantes!!
    Este color es una locura, que bien te queda. Pregunta: al ser tan pigmentado, no mancha la uña?

    1. La calidad ha sido muy buena y no recuerdo que me haya manchado (las fotos tienen unas dos semanas). Seguiré buscándolos a buen precio... quizás algún día tenga Jo'Mina y todo :-)

  3. Ai este no se si me gusta tanto, mira que soy fan de los naranjas pero este me tira mucho a ladrillo, me hace acordar a una cancha de tenis!

    1. Uy, te parece? Yo lo veo más rojizo pero no apagado como un terracotta. Es divertido y alegre, igualmente ya sabemos que en un tus uñas todo queda bien :-)
