Break out your murky greens, blacks, and oranges, because it’s almost Halloween! I must find black polish rather boring, because I don’t have any good ones reviewed (that are still available!). Must remedy that!
Illamasqua Gamma Nail Varnish ($14.00 for 0.5 fl. oz.) is described as a “neon orange.” They really mean neon, too, because this is a medium-dark, neon orange–it’s traffic cone orange, construction orange, whatever you want to call it–it’s bright and in-your-face orange. It’s opaque in nearly one coat, though I did two for swatches, and it dries to this pleather-like finish–a little shiny, kind of matte, but not quite. The finish reminded me of Orly’s Plastix, though Gamma is more neon and deeper than Orly’s Old School Orange. Illamasqua’s formula is richly pigmented, smooth, and easy to apply. I typically get a full week of wear with Illamasqua Nail Varnishes with minimal tip wear and no chips.
