Illamasqua Selfridges gift set – a future collector’s piece?

centenary nail polish set

For Selfridges’ 100th anniversary, limited edition items in the signature yellow hue have been produced by everyone from Moleskine to Coca-Cola. As the newest and brightest addition to Selfridges’ Beauty Hall, it figures that Illamasqua would be joining the party. They have created a limited edition gift box containing both the black shade “Boosh”, and a centenary special edition yellow called “Self”.

It costs £25 – the same price as two nailpolishes from the regular line. Only 200 sets have been made. With Illamasqua’s reputation rapidly climbing, and the added prestige of the Selfridges’ connection, this is probably a wise investment for collectors.

However, I doubt if many people could manage to stop themselves from using the vivid yellow before it matured to collectible status!
