Nomad Nail Art

Illamasqua Nomad is probably my single favourite thing that I’ve put on my nails this year. And that’s saying something because I’ve been indulging in some lovely polishes. Honestly, though, I think I forgot how perfect Illamasqua’s ones are – they practically apply themselves and the colours are unparalleled in terms of richness.

Nomad is a beautiful minty jade colour, quite different from any other mint or jade greens in my collection. A perfect Spring shade, it also doesn’t give me the dreaded red lobster hands that many light greens do. I absolutely LOVE it.

(Sorry about the mess – pre clean up!)

Although I don’t yet have Stance, the in-your-face magenta fuchsia shade also released with the Human Fundamentalism collection, I wanted to do a bit of simple but striking nail art with the closest shade I had; Sinful Colours Dream On. I just painted a random section of each nail with it and separated the two colours with a Models Own white nail art pen. I did these in artificial light, and it wasn’t until I took photos with flash and saw them in daylight that I noticed I could have done with an extra coat of Dream On as it’s not quite opaque in some places, but it’s not too noticeable in real life. I took photos of both hands so you can see the different areas I painted on each nail.

    :o I love it! Actually may have to get Nomad now -shakes fist-.
    If I tried something like this, there would be 100% be more polish not on my nails, than on them!
