Nail Polish

Illamasqua’s Ruthless

November 30, 2009

Sometimes I need to just Get Things Done.  I find that a good red creme helps immeasurably.  Today, I’m test driving Illamasqua’s Ruthless– a bright red creme that says “get out of my way.”  Application was smooth and easy–the polish has a thin texture but is pigmented enough to give a nearly-opaque finish in two coats.


When applied, the color applies as a bright tomato red–similar to what you would expect from a bright red pen.

$14 at Sephora. Probably more than the average nail polish price, but the quality of this is quite nice for that price. As you can see from the photos, there is a huge color shift depending on the light. The top product picture was taken with cool flash lighting, and the bottom in warmer light. The picture that shows the polish on the nail is closer to how the polish looks in most lighting.2

      I’m very impressed with the formula–I find this richer than some of the new OPI’s for example.
