Today I have Illamasqua's Human Fundamentalism nail lacquers to share with you guys. It consists of two of my favorite colors, a green and a purple. Therefore I definitely had to buy this once it was available at Sephora. Before I show you swatches, I want to say that my pictures does the polishes no justice, and these definitely need to be seen in person to enjoy the beauty of them.
Stance is a bright fuchsia violet creme with a slight jelly finish. 3 coats. I wanted to say this is a neon purple as most neon purples look like that but this one is super shiny. One of my co-workers thought it was a gel manicure.
Nomad is a light green creme. Illamasqua describes this color as a Jade, and it definitely does remind me of jade green. This was 2 coats. It was also super shiny!
After seeing the promo picture, I couldn't help but try to do the nail art, but in a different way. Instead of doing free hand to have the edges show some green too I used nail tip guide stickers to just make a some what moon design. I still like the way it turned out and the combination of the two colors!
The formula for both of these were excellent. Nomad was actually opaque in one coat, but I did two to even it out. As for Stance, since it had a slight jelly like finish, it was a bit sheer with just 1 coat. Under two thin coats there were some visible nail line, so I settled down with three. I love both of them and they were well worth the money to me. These are available at sephora.com and retials for $14 per bottle.
What do you guys think of these two?
