Illamasqua Nail Varnish Duo: Viridian & Glitterati

Thanks to my UK friend Sue, I am the owner of this lovely duo.  Although later on I found out they carry it at Sephora.  The application on both of these was dreamy, although I'm not a big fan of the brush, the formula is superb.  They are almost one coaters, very dense, but they look better at two coats.  This is the perfect duo for Christmas, red and green, perfect for carry on if you are going on a trip.  The green one looks amazing even without topcoat, and since the color is so saturated, the nails look like they are done by a professional.  Totally worth the price tag in my opinion.  The red one reminded me of Two Birds Something Wicked, but this one has holographic silver glitters instead of white.  I don't wear a lot of Illamasqua, but this duo is definitely one to blog and rave about.
