Illamasqua Nurture - Rubber Brights

When Illamasqua's Rubber Brights Nail Polishes launched as a Sephora exclusive in August last year, I wanted them all! Of course when they finally arrived here in the UK 2 months ago, I realistically had to pick just one. Even then it had to compete with newly launched (I didn't make it to the shop until February) I'mperfection Speckled Nails.

I love all the speckled nail pics I've seen, but I couldn't envisage them looking as good on my short nails and then I saw Nurture in the flesh and all thoughts of Fragile and Mottle went out of the window. I honestly haven't seen one picture that accurately captures the colour of Nurture. Most give it too much yellow and others flatten it's vibrancy. I did have a go, still don't think I got there.

Then with POP Aquatic Glitz after I chipped them - inevitable with my bendy nails - of course you loose the matte / rubber finish, but this type of combo always makes me think of Saris, brightly coloured, with stunning shiny embroidery, heavy at the hem, graduating to more sporadic detailing in the body.

And finally, this one might just capture the colour best....think matte from the top with this colour.

Sadly showing as discontinued on the Illamasqua website, Nurture is still available from ASOS and Sefridges. Suprisingly, the latter is also stocking Aorta! Part of the original Sephora Rubber Brights line up of 6 polishes, I really thought it hadn't made it to these shores as I hadn't seen it in any of the Illamasqua UK promotional materials.
