NOTD - Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Nomad

Illamasqua Nomad

I've been taking this jade baby for a ride for the last week. It's an unusual creamy mint, unusual not that it's a strange colour because I see a lot of brands trotting out similar shades, but because it's so lovely and opaque after a coat and perfect after two. Love that. Drying time is average, and I sped it up with some drying drops.


Below is two coats, plus normal base and top coats.

Also, a quick apology to the Sydney Tiffany & Co store who may get some strange requests for the nail polish they don't make. I've had different people ask me this week if it's "Tiffany" and some of them haven't understood me or not heard of Illamasqua (I swear I'm pronouncing this one just fine), so I've just agreed with them so it doesn't get any more awkward and I can just pick up my honey tofu cold rolls already. Yeah, I'm kind of a jerk sometimes.

But it really does need to be like the teensiest bit lighter/creamier with slightly more aqua tone to be spot-on anyway. I really like the shade, it's eye-catching, wears well (five days so far on me with nary a chip) and goes well against my uber-white skin tone. I've posted about maybe three different green polishes before, and this is now sitting pretty as my favourite.


Illamasqua Nail Vanish in Nomad is part of their Human Fundamentalism range, retailing for A$34. Exxy for a polish, but if you're normally buying Chanel polishes and their ilk (guilty!), I find Illamasqua makes a smoother, more pigmented formula. Plus you'll have $5 change for Donut King. Yay!


ALSO! Illamasqua has a dirty 20% off at their Myers counter over this weekend and possible for longer. If you're going to get your green on, now's your chance!


These products were offered for review by Illamasqua. Illamasqua have in no way influenced my review and opinions are my own. It is also my opinion that there can never be too many Paul Rudd gifs and I should make more use of them. Cos, c'mon. Paul Rudd. Doesn't Michaela Rudd just sound dreamy? But not like a related to Kevin Rudd way. Shit, I'm ruining things again.. See my Disclaimer for more sexy details.

  1. Best gif. I enjoy the idea of people enquiring about nailpolishes in Tiffany.

    1. I can't stop watching it. I think I have a problem.
      I felt bad for like 5 seconds after each encounter, then I remember the shopgirl there was rude to me last time I was in Tiffany's so whatever.

  2. I didn't even realise Kevin and Paul had the same surname, haha. Never tried Illamasqua (or Chanel) nail polishes, as I can't bring myself to spend anything over $20 for a bottle. Sounds like a really high quality polish though :)

    1. I normally only spend up on very unusual or hard to find shades. But now I've tried this one as a gift, I've got the feeling my wallet is going to get it bad. God speed, wallet.

      I only realised the P & K Rudd connection as I was scrawling Mrs Michaela Rudd in my notebook and my boyfriend pointed it out :(

  5. Fortunately, the best HCG diet centers in Atlanta Ga.
    Common examples of these fads are the HCG diet and Cleanse diet (also known by other names).
    Typically, the individual is either given h - CG drops or injections two days prior
    to starting the diet. That is why the EPT Early Pregnancy Test is very important.
    With a 700 calorie food intake and a 2000 calorie usage it is typical to lose 1
    to 2 lbs a day. He also spent 2 years in a federal prison for credit card fraud.

    You get to use their hand and play their actions,
    and any card that you gain from this possession goes to you and not them.
    The blastocyst will then excrete the h - CG hormone to
    inform the body that it is now pregnant. Granted, there aren't
    many diets that actually work. Enough on biochemistry, let's
    talk about net carbs and how they should be treated in your maintenance phase.
