Illamasqua Pastel Nail spring polishes released

Here are Illamasqua's new quartet of pastel nail polishes, released today and available from the Illamasqua website at a cost of £13 each. "Wink", "Nudge", "Blow" and "Caress" can also be bought in a set for £39, which amounts to a 4 for 3 deal.

Apparently there is a waiting list of over 400 people hovering in line to get their hands on these polishes. That's according to Illamasqua's email newsletter, which was sent out today.

Don't get me wrong, I love Illamasqua's products generally and I would certainly not turn my nose up at any or all of these polishes. From my experience of their other nail colours, I'd expect the wear and application to be superb. But doesn't a 400-strong waiting list seem a little much for what is essentially a set of fairly standard Spring pastels?

I hope I'm not going to be crucified for this, but they all look kind of... dupe-able to me. Maybe once I've seen them in person I'll change my mind...

Anyone else have an opinion on these? Would you wait in line for them? Are they on your must-have list?


  1. i wouldnt pay £13 for a nail polish, no matter how pretty!

  2. I'd happily pay £13 for a nail varnish if I loved the colour.

    Sadly, I can't even begin to express how disappointed that this collection has come from Illamasqua, of all companies. Pastels! Pah.

  3. I'm with you. I Love Illamasqua, and the polishes do look pretty, but definately dupable and for a lot cheaper too.

  4. I'm slightly surprised that Illamasqua have gone with the standard spring trend in releasing some pastel shades. They're pretty... but SO many companies do pastels at this time of year. Would have expected something a bit mould-breaking from Illamasqua!

  5. 400?! That's INSANE :| I would never bother to pay that much or go on such a big waiting list for a nail polish. Or any makeup item really, unless it was made of unicorns and magic.
