Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Baptiste

By beautopia · April 22, 2010 · 0 Comments ·

Illamasqua Baptiste - $14 at sephora.com

Another home-run from Illamasqua! I adore these polishes, and can forsee an intervention being staged on my behalf at some point in the future. In the meantime I'll just keep on keepin' on. This British brand of dramatic cosmetics is so fun, and the nail polishes are some of the coolest members of the family. Baptiste is a very rich and saturated royal purple full of twinkling blue and violet-pink shimmer. It's super dark on the nail and the shimmer is most visible in direct lighting but does allow it to not look black in indirect light. It reminded me a lot of China Glaze Let's Groove in the bottle but it's just a bit deeper and the shimmer is a little more subtle, but the idea is similar. Below are more photos of Baptiste in different lights.  

What do you think of Baptiste? Have you tried it? What's your favorite purple polish?

This is my fave purple polish. I bought this before they came to sephora and cost me an arm and leg in shipping but it was well worth it!

my favorite purple shade that I use very sparingly is sephora by opi "just a little dangerous". I can't get enough of that color. Its a deep amethyst with light pink flecks.

love it! I am really into purple this season

This color is fab! Illamasqua has really great colors it lasts. I purchased the mint green and red colors and it lasts for almost two weeks.
