Stance by Illamasqua

Happy Sunday, beauties! Hope you’re all coping well in this horrible, HORRIBLE weather. I hope the floods haven’t affected you too much. Things are okay down my end, but it’s just gloomy & depressing. I think Summer really needs to hurry its self up!

I thought I’d share my first Illamasqua polish with you all. The lovely team, sent me a few bits from their new ‘Human Fundamentalism’ collection to try & this definitely was the product which stuck out the  most to me. I’m generally quite picky when it comes to purple nail varnishes & ‘STANCE‘ hits the nail on the head!

Stance* by Illamasqua
RRP: £13.50 available from HERE.

It’s a beautiful creamy fuchsia with neon undertones. If you know me, I love bright polishes!  I’m an ORLY girl at heart but Illamasqua definitely did a great job! It’s super easy to apply & fairly pigmented too! It’s a really hard colour to photograph which is why I’ve taken a picture with flash from my iPhone so you can see just hot bright the polish is.

Do you see what I mean about it being BRIGHT? It’s slightly higher priced than I normally pay for a polish however saying that, there are some colours I’ve got my eye on from Illamasqua, Lament, Nomad & Collide to name a few ;) I would definitely opt for these rather than MAC polishes, that’s for sure. Their collections are amazing to say the least which is why I will be keeping an eye out for them!

What are your favourite Illamasqua products? Have you tried anything from Human Fundamentalism? Sharing is caring ;)

    LOVE the color! It’s perfect for summer.

      Totally agree with you!

    Gorgeous colour. Illamasqua polishes really do it for me, I find them to have one of the longest wearing formulations. I really ought to get around to trying more products, I had a mini-binge back last summer on a few things from ‘Toxic Nature’ but not much since. The ‘Sophie’ eye pencil is one of my go to’s.

    • Kaushal

      Yes – it lasts really well for me too! Oooh, I will have to check it out at some point. Thank you for the heads up :)
