Illamasqua Week - Harsh & Boosh Nail Varnish Duo Part 2
Evening darlings! Illamasqua week continues with the already shown Nail Varnish Duo, but this time it's time for Boosh to shine. And although I thought Harsh as the main note of the mani is almost too much, this manicure with Harsh only on my accent finger rocked my world. I actually googled what 'Boosh' is supposed to mean, and from what I understand, it can either have negative or positive aspect. So Boosh Thursday by your liking, I hope you had a good one!
Two coats of Boosh, four coats of Harsh on my ring finger and scotch tape design, inspired of course by gorgeous Erika and her Chloe's Nails. Boosh is extremely easy to work with, really, I would bet some with shorter nails could make it a one coater, I did two of course, my nails are getting rather long. Two coats and it's a perfection. It dries almost as glossy as it is on my pictures, I had to put TC because I change my manis now late at night, because I don't have time to do it sooner and I don't want to ruin them by taking a shower and going to bed soon after. But yeah, like I said, magical black glossy creme. Really a perfection. And I love, simply love the combination in this case. Harsh spices up the mani a bit, but it remains edgy and sexy because of the blackness of it. Let me tell you, this baby is super black, it has a certain depht that I don't see often in blacks. Love it!
This mani lasted for three days, I think, then I removed it, because the accent finger was getting a bit tip-wearish and I can't stand that on stripes when I do them. It could easily last for at least five days, I'd say, Boosh had minimal tip wear.
This is a perfect black, people. Extremely easy to work with, two coats, brush is a perfection, it dries glossy and quite fast, just ... not a bad thing about it. I totally would love to have it, seriously. I'm a fan of black polish, and this one has become my holy grail. For me black is a classic nail colour, I cannot feel bad wearing it. Saying that, I would still buy few other Illamasquas before I'd buy this one. My student budget forces me to choose, and choose very restrictively. But if someone asked me for a perfect black, I'd say Boosh is the deal. I'll get it one day!
What do you think about this one? :)
