On to the matter at hand – Illamasqua Nail Quills. I have to say, for me it’s a nay. If you know me at all you’ll know that Illamasqua is my absolute favourite brand, but I won’t be buying a set of these. Have you seen them?
I remember when we first saw them on the Illamasqua blog, Kim and I were both like ‘wtf, cufflinks?’ – haha! Still puzzled as to what they are? Check out this video:
Admittedly, they are definitely eye catching and unique (I’ve not seen anything like them before, anyway) but they really aren’t my sort of thing. Just a little impractical! And a little expensive – these will be going for £35 a pair. Sorry, Illamasqua, but I think that’s a little steep even if they are handmade! They look amazing for a photoshoot, but they’re a bit beyond my needs. In fact I think they’re beyond most everyday consumers. Or am I wrong? I can imagine that if they were a bit cheaper, they might be quite tempting as something unique to wear for a Christmas party. I’m quite interested in the new matte nail polish in ‘Scorn’ though.
How about you? Do you want to try out these tantalising talons or are they a bit too much for you?
Illamasqua’s handmade nail quills will be available exclusively online and from the flagship store on London’s Beak Street from the end of November.
