Don't Bite Your Nails: Illamasqua Nomad Nail Varnish Swatches and Review

     It's been sooo long since I've made a nail post! I recently picked up two Illamasqua nail polishes, and Nomad is one of them. This color is from a recent collection and it's been getting a lot of love so I wanted to try it for myself. I'm not usually pulled into the color family that this polish belongs but it's nice to explore once in a while. Here are some swatches!

     There's something special about Illamasqua Nomad that's made it so popular. It's a different color from the oh-so-dominant trend of mint green polishes. It's hard to describe the color perfctly as it's been described as a bright jade color. But I don't get it because there are so many shades of jade...just me nit-picking. I can only say, Nomad is a intensely saturated mid-tone slightly yellowed green with no blue. It's definitely a statement shade because of it's saturation that really makes be want to say it's neon. The Illamasqua cream polishes I've tried have always applied decently well though I think they're a bit thick and if the bottle is open too long, the polish can get even more goopy.

     I can't say too much about wear right now because I seem to be having trouble with base coats and top coats. I don't know what it is but my nail polish has been chipping very quickly. Please recommend to me any top coats and base coats you like!

Thanks for reading! Please leave me a comment. Byebye. o u   o''
