Illamasqua: Stance and Nomad

Was I the only one heartbroken when Sephora stopped selling Illamasqua? Stance, shown in this post, was one of the first "higher end" polishes I purchased (a million years ago) and is still a favorite. I love their nail polish formula, and I do believe (unlike coughTomFordcoughcough) that the price tag matches the quality. Today I have two polishes to show you: Nomad and Stance.

First up, here is Nomad:



This is such a stunning jade green!! It is such a wearable shade and I bet it looks good on many different skintones. I used three thin coats for what you see here. The first coat was streaky, second was fine, third just made it look creamy and vibrant.



As I mentioned, Stance is an older polish of mine. I believe I have had this bottle for at least 5 years and it still performs perfectly. I used just two coats here. The wear on this brand is just wonderful - I wore this, with zero chipping, for almost 5 full days (but hey, I am a polish blogger! I change them often, okay!?)




Last look!


Do you have any Illamasqua polishes? Love them? Hate them?

Let me know!
