Illamasqua Nail Quills

Illamasqua has released a very limited release of handmade bespoke nail quills. These are unlike anything I’ve seen before!

Unique, extraordinary, and extravagant these tantalising talons are like nothing you’ve ever seen before. Designed and handmade exclusively for Illamasqua by one of the hottest names in nails, Mike Pocock, these collector’s items are guaranteed to tease the senses of anyone whose eye they catch. Presented in a beautiful gift box they come complete with nail tabs and glue. False nails will never be the same again!

Two Nail Quills per set, designed to be worn on either thumb. Featuring a matte black finish and silver tip, match your Nail Quill with our new matte black Nail Varnish in Scorn.




The bottom lifts up and has stick on pieces and nail glue :)


Nail polish is Illamasqua’s Scorn, LOVE it!!

These are definitely unique, and are pretty cool! I wasn’t sure how I felt about them at first, but once I put them on with the matte black polish it really grew on me. Obviously, I wouldn’t wear this on a daily basis, as I’d be afraid I’d scratch my eyes out or something :) These would be really cool for a photo shoot or a special event. One thing I noticed was that the nail quills were a bit big for my thumbnails, so if you have tiny fingers these probably won’t work out well for you. They are reusable, so if you take care of them when applying and removing (especially if you use the nail sticker pieces that come with) these should last you awhile.

The polish that’s recommended to go with the quills, Scorn, is amazing, like all the Illamasqua polishes I’ve used. It’s a matte Black, opaque in one coat (shown here with two coats, just to make sure it photographed even), and has the slightest dull shine. I love mattes that aren’t flat, like a sharpie, but are like this. sooo gorgeous!!

    There is a vid that shows how the guy that designed these applies them. He puts the sticker onto the nail bed, then puts the glue onto the sticker and then sticks down the nail. I think thats such a good idea! putting the sticker between the nail and the glue means less damage to nail and easier to remove!

    I would totally poke my eye out… HAHA. They are cool, but I would hurt myself.

    I would SO get these if I wasn’t so afraid of them. I’m the girl that would end up in the hospital with “nail-related injuries” every time I wore them.

    Hello I was wondering if you know of any places to get the Mood Polish??

    These look so cool! I think my fingers are a bit too tiny for three quills though :(. If not, I’d definitely try them out :D

    For some reason, I thought the “bespoke” part would mean they would fit your nails, that they’d have sizes or be custom fit or something. You could probably file down the edges to adjust the quills to your thumbnails, but I’d be hesitant to do so I think.

    I also am not so sure about the whole foil tip. Originally they looked like they had metal tips, which I thought was cool and sort of sexy, in a sort of bdsm/dominatrix sort of way. But the fact that it’s a foil overlay sort of spoils it for me, cheapens it maybe? I don’t know. I’m sort of disappointed with these.

    Scorn is pretty damn hot, though, I have to admit. I may have to break down and order it.

  10. Sarah says

    Huh, you think with a box that size (and I would assume quite the price tag) that the Scorn polish would come WITH the quills… Man, I should be designing these sets! LMAO!

  11. Chaosbutterfly says

    Lol, I don’t really get the point of them. I mean…can we at least get a full set?
    How would it look with talons on my thumbs and nubbins everywhere else? LMAO!

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as
    though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you
    could be giving us something informative to read?
