As some of you may be aware, Illamasqua are currently having a 60% off sale. I love Illamasqua sales, they're an opportunity to buy products that would otherwise be too expensive. I think I've bought most of my Illamasqua products in sales! I bought lip gloss in Mina and nail polish in Scorn.
I'd been looking at Scorn previously, but never actually picked it up, so when I saw that it was £10 in the sale I thought it'd be a good opportunity to buy it since I don't really have a good black in my collection.
Scorn is a semi-matte black polish, and was made to go with their nail quills. It isn't chalky like most mattes, which I think is why I prefer it to entirely matte polishes. I used two coats. The drying time was a little longer than most mattes, but it still dried quickly. It lasted around three days before it really started to chip, which is excellent considering other matte polishes I've tried haven't lasted a single day (one of Avon's matte polishes lasted an hour on me).
I really love the finish of Scorn, it's really interesting and unusual. I'm definitely going to get a lot of wear out of it, since I use a lot of black polish.
Scorn is available on the Illamasqua website for £13.50, but is currently on sale for £10.
Disclosure: I bought this polish myself.
