Normally, I don't worry about nail colors and my job. My co-workers are used to blue, green and purple glittery nails on me. I work in an office and most of my meetings are by teleconference, so I don't venture too far away from my office. However, we had a meeting where outside clients were coming in, so I had to save the holos and duochromes for another time. After shuffling through my stash, I realized that I don't have many non-sparkly cremes. Then I came across my unswatched Illamasqua Alarm.
I have to be honest, not many of the Illamasqua colors that are on display at Sephora appealed to me. Alarm was nice, and Jo'mina and Muse also made its way into my basket, because, well - and the blog states - I'm addicted. For this manicure, I reached for the Illamasqua Alarm.
Alarm is described as a bright orangey red. I love these types of red, less blue and more orange I feel they look better with my skin tone. This had one of the best formulas around. It was a touch thick, but completely opaque in 1 coat. I actually looked at my nails and realized I could stop there and put a top coat on, it was that nice. I still put on a second and topped it off with some Seche Vite.
