I can't stop buying Illamasqua's nail polishes! *sigh* But I'm loving the formula.. Ever since a friend sent me Stance, I fell in love! And Collide, such a hot neon pink, is gorgeous on my toes and has been my pedi color two times in a row now (and probably the rest of summer, I find a lot of colors don't look good on my toes!)
So when I went to return my MUFE Mat Velvet foundation, I decided to exchange it for Nomad and also an Urban Decay eyeshadow single (in Shattered). So here's Nomad on it's own:
What's funny, I remember when I first saw Nomad, when I was newly into nail polish.. and saw comparisons of it to Essie T&C, and China Glaze For Audrey, and thought I could settle for For Audrey because it was "close enough" to the others. Yeah, right! Now that my nail polish collection has grown and nearly at 300, I see myself falling in love with colors that are "similar" but definitely not the same!
Anyways, I decided to try some nail art that I saw recently on another blog.. But I just can NOT remember who did it! If you know, comment so I can credit them for the idea! I had meant to do black lines to separate the gold & Nomad, but I no longer have a black striper polish! But it still looks cool... Here's 2 coats of Jade Mystic Gold (I used striping tape to make the V outline!)
Hope you like it!
