Fall Favorites Series Part 3: Illamasqua - Viridian

Good evening

and welcome to the third part of my Fall Favorites Series! Today I have for you a "peacock green, metallic finish" as it's described by the company. It is Viridian by Illamasqua. This one came out in Fall 2010 as part of their Art Of Darkness collection. This has been one of my first Illamasqua polishes along with Scarab, the second polish from this collection.

Viridian looks like a mixture of peacock and emerald green with a nice shimmer to it. In real life it's a tidbit more green but my camera likes to pull out the blues in nail polishes.

I have seen several comparisions with China Glaze Emerald Fitzgerald or Essence All Access that look quite similar to Viridian. They're not complete dupes, though. And so far I don't own another green like this so I love this a lot.


Application of Viridian was easy and thanks to the intense pigmentation I got away with two coats. If you do thick coats you might even obtain full coverage with only one coat! I have worn this a while ago so to be honest I forgot what base and top coat I used for this manicure.

You can buy Illamasqua nail polishes from their webstore where they retail for £13.50 per 15ml 0.5 FL. OZ. bottle. In the US Illamasqua is sold by Sephora stores where they retail for $14 each.

Thanks for reading, I hope you are enjoying this blog series!
