Nails of the day [March5,2011]

As long as i remember , i have loved glittery nails compared to matt ones. And as long as nail polish brands keep coming out with glitter polishes, I will be hooking up my nails with some sparkles and glitters.
They are pain to remove but to be honest i dont care , I love them enough to take this challenge . 
Today i am posting about one of my favourite locally available brand for glitter nail polishes. "Medora".

I bought Medora shade number 354 almost 3 months ago from Lahore. Its a beautiful brown with lovely pink glitter in it. The glitter in the polish isn't fine so it may feel little griddy after final application. I recommend using a topcoat.

 Its affordable, easily available and so many beautiful shades to choose from. They have improved their nail polish formulas. They last quite a long time without any chipping. I have applied 3 coats in these pictures. and i think it looks great.

I might pick up few more on my next trip .Have you tried medora nail polishes? any shade you would want me to try ?

Illamasqua SS11 Toxic Nature Collection

Unpredictable, uncharted and unnat­ural, Illamasqua unleashes Toxic Nature for Spring/Summer 2011, a colour collection born from a visionary concept of nature fighting back against the genetically modified society that plunders it. Illamasqua has created the Toxic Nature collection through a palette of lurid shades, corrupted hues and glistening muted tones that offer intoxicating versions of their original selves.


“Having an artist background highly influenced this collection. The medium of paint when it is in various states [mixed on a palette, on a canvas, the colours mutating when you wash your brushes] inspired the product colours of Toxic Nature. Blends, washes, dabs, drips, daubs and splashes of colour are evident in the imagery of the collection.” Alex Box, Illamasqua Creative Director.

Like nature itself, it’s not all sweetness and light. Shades of mint, mushroom, plum, orange and rose are distorted with rich textures and pops of acid-infused brightness that command attention and draw you in…


Cream Pigment - £17.00

 A new matt formula that can either neutralise or dominate. Create the ultimate in textures whether it’s on your face, eyes, or body, bringing a flash of colour to a subtle contour.

 “The power of the products in this collection is evident in the intensity of the Cream Pigments – they are intense, raw colour but blend down easily exactly like an artists paint palette.” Alex Box.
  • Emerge – Peach    [EU only]
  • Bedaub - Mint
  • Dab - Lilac
  • Hollow - Toffee
  • Delirium – Rose Taupe  [EU only]
  • Mould – Grape

Precision Ink in ‘Glister’ - £17.00 
Create looks with attitude with this glistening opalescent nude. It dries within seconds and stays true for hours, so whatever you scrawl on your skin, you know your creation will last until dawn.

Lipstick - £15.50

Intense Lipstick with a highly pigmented formula that glides on smoothly, creating a statement.
  • Atomic – Fuchsia violet
  • Flare – Bright orange

Sheer Lipgloss - £13.00

Come out of the shadows with a high-shine punch of colour. Glossy, intense, and highly pigmented, Illamasqua Sheer Lipgloss is long-lasting, both on the lips and in the mind.
  • Torture – Coral Peach
  • Divine – Fuchsia Pink

Nail Varnish - £13.50

Leave your mark with an unexpected claw. Choose from either toxic pastels or unmissable neons. Hardwearing and chip-resistant.
  • Purity – Peach
  • Bacterium – Pearlescent Ash Ochre
  • Radium – Acidic Lime Shimmer
  • Stagnate – Grey Mauve
  • Gamma – Neon orang

Toxic Claw - £35.00
Illamasqua are proud to present the second collaboration with visionary manicurist, Mike Pocock.  A beautifully presented set of two false thumb nails, these have been designed and individually hand made by Mike. ‘The mutated aesthetic of the nail was inspired by the corrupted hues present in the Toxic Nature collection’.

NEW: Cream Pigments


We have supplied you with an artist’s palette so that you can experiment with mixing and matching your new Cream Pigments!
Apply with fingers or a brush for a buildable, matt and water resistant finish.


“I don’t think we have ever created a product that is as hard working as Cream Pigment. They can correct or enhance, disguise or reveal. I am obsessed with their versatility; blush, lips, eyes, contouring … they are absolutely my favourite product right now. Super-blendable, they can be pressed and blended into skin or slicked on for graphic shapes. Education is key with the pigments. Once you have learnt how to master them, you can control their impact.”  – Alex Box, Creative Director

“The versatile and multitasking formula has an intense colour payoff that provides additional adhesion and intensification when applied before Powder Eye Shadows and Pure Pigments. The product can be used as a sheer wash or built to full coverage.” – David Horne, Director of New Product Development

  • Hollow – This toffee shade is perfect as a contour on paler skintones. It also works brilliantly as an eye shadow base on olive – darker skintones.
  • Emerge – This peach brightens under eye shadows and is beautiful as a highlighter on olive – darker skintones. It’s also a very flattering blusher on paler skin tones.
  • Delirium – This rose taupe shade is fantastic for contouring pale – olive skin tones, as well as healthy flush to all skintones as a blusher and as a soft lip colour.
  • Bedaub – This mint green is a wonderful eye base, and is flattering on all skintones.
  • Mould – Because every Spring collection needs a touch of darkness, this grape is stunning as a base for a smoky eye or intense, statement lip.  
  • Dab – This gentle lilac is beautiful for eyes lips and cheeks, especially for a 60s look.

Illamasqua SS11 Toxic Nature launch! Will go live from Thursday March 10th online at and from Thursday March 17th on counters in the UK, but there is the chance for 3 lucky people to WIN their favourite products from the new collection by adding them to the waiting list at will be picked on Wednesday March 9th
