NOTD: Illamasqua Load

To celebrate St Valentines this year, Illamasqua has launched Throb, a mini collection consisting of three new nail vanish shades, a lipgloss and a lipstick.

One of the new additions to the Illamasqua nail varnish family is a rich and creamy yellow under-toned shade, given the risqué name Load. The colour is a unique custard vanilla shade and although I'm not a fan of the colour personally, I know a lot of people will love this as a more wearable alternative to white. It took two coats for an opaque finish and what I like best was that there was no need to add a topcoat for ultra glossy nails.


Illamasqua's nail varnish is priced at £13.50 

Available from Selfridges London, Manchester, Birmingham, Fenwick Newcastle, Debenhams Glasgow, Belfast, Cardiff and online at www.illamasqua.com

  5. Im so pleased because they have finally opened up an Illamasqua counter in my city and I do have a bit of a thing for solid pastel colours. how many layers of the polish is needed to get that consistency tho? and agreed- the name is pretty off putting, I wonder what the other ones in the range are called. x

  7. I can't decide whether I like it or not. It's not something I would definitely go for, but the more I see it on other people I think it looks nice :)

  9. It looks lovely on you! I don't usually wear this type of colour on my nails though, so I probably wouldn't buy it myself. I do like the finish of it though! x

  10. I liked it in the promo shot with the black but on its own it looks a bit blah. I don't like white on its own anyway #tippex
