Introducing Cameo and Noble by Illamasqua

From the runway shows of New York and London to city street styles, shades of blue continue to adorn the talons of the style makers and trendsetters alike. Inspired by the hottest color of the season, Illamasqua introduces two new blue nail varnishes in the beautifully expressive shades of Noble and Cameo to be sold exclusively at Sephora and Sephora inside JCP.

Illamasqua’s Director of Product Development David Horne specifically mixed these two complementary hues to compliment Illamasqua’s range of over 50 bold shades of chip resistant, long wearing nail varnishes.

Nail Varnish ($14.00) (Limited Edition)

  • Cameo Cornflower blue
  • Noble Turquoise blue

Availability: Sephora

  1. Just when I thought I had enough blue nail polishes in my life! Ugh these look gorgeous!

  2. Ahhh how did they know?!? I’ve been OBSESSED with blue polishes lately–literally manic. I don’t know how or why it started, but I can’t get enough! I’ve been looking for the PERFECT cornflower blue (there’s surprisingly very few out there) and this one looks gorgeous. Besides, I’ve been meaning to try Illamasqua’s Nail Varnishes anyway–I always hear such good things

    Gorgeous! Too bad that Sephora decided not to have the FF sale. I’ll try to find something similar from OPI or Essie at my local nail polish store instead. I’m too annoyed that I missed out on the UD sale waiting for the “cancelled” Sephora FF sale to give Sephora any more of my hard-earned dollars!

    They should have made Christine the ambassador of their nail polishes! I have brought 3 of these polishes after reading about them on Temptalia, never heard of them before that. I like the corn flower blue color..

    FU Illamasqua for making these perfect shades US exclusive :(

  8. Is it just me or are the descriptions mixed up? Cornflower blue is a blue/lavender which in the video was named Noble. Turquoise blue is a greenish blue which in the video was named Cameo. Which is correct?
    I’m so confused!

    • Sephora’s descriptions are totally different, but they still indicate that Cameo is the cornflower/darker blue, while Noble is the turquoise-y one!

  9. Hi,

    Beautiful…I want both! Have you thought of any Zoya dupes (just thinking before buying, lol)? Also, I think the two colors might be mixed up on the video, as the “cornflower” color is “Cameo”… crazy, huh?

    Is it limited edition?

    Are you going to swatch these? Cameo looks so very pretty.

    Also do you know anything about the new chubby stick intense? I know they’ll be released in europe in mid-november, how about in the US?

    I actually work at a Sephora in Ontario, Canada and we have received both shades. They are already out on the Nail Studio gondola.

    I was in sephora today and swatched Cameo because it looks so similar to what I have on now, Sally Hansen Pacific Blue. Cameo is a bit lighter, but they’re decent dupes, for those who want to know :)
