Illamasqua Scarab

I cannot express in words how much I love this nail polish. Illamasqua Scarab it literally the most perfect red polish that I own. It's a very atypical red, unlike any I own. It's from the Art of Darkness collection by Illamasqua from Fall 2010, but it looks like you can still get it at Sephora. A scarab is a beetle that was revered in ancient Egypt and, don't quote me on this, but I believe it means "transformation". Which is just cool.

Scarab is a rubyish-copper hued red that has intense shimmer that looks very lustrous even with its blackened base. It almost pulls towards a metallic finish but paints on easier. It's very velvety. *sigh* I am in serious amour with this baby. This is two coats.
I got this in a swap with the beautiful Suzanne from DeltaCephei, thanks again doll!
