Gotta say it – Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned! 😉
Illamasqua Scorn is a full-on sexy lacquer that always reminds me of Catwoman’s suit. It has that rubberized feel that makes it really interesting to look at.
I feel like I need to crack a whip, purr, or wear a spiked collar when Illamasqua Scorn is on my nails.
To me, this polish represents Illamasqua very well. I see the brand as being daring, dark, and editorial. Scorn encapsulates all that in a beautiful glass bottle.

Illamasqua Scorn Review
Scorn by Illamasqua is an edgy black that’s Catwoman in a bottle. That’s the best way I can describe it. It’s not your ordinary black nail polish. It has personality in spades!
The matte finish isn’t flat. There’s almost a rubberized look to it.
Now, you know me – I like using my Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat because it really speeds up the nail-painting process. With this polish, you don’t use a top coat, unless you want to transform it into an ordinary shiny black polish.
I was happy to see that Scorn by Illamasqua doesn’t take a long time to dry. No, it’s not lightning fast, but the dry time also isn’t so long that I’m worried about getting dents.
Application & Formula
Scorn by Illamasqua has a thick formula that isn’t really forgiving. Try to use as few strokes as possible, and try to avoid going over the same section more than once or twice.
Other than that, the formula was easy to work with.
Final Verdict: 8/10
Believe it or not, Scorn by Illamasqua is the only matte/rubberized black nail polish that I own. I really like the look, and I can picture myself wearing this lacquer again and again.
