Illamasqua Human Fundamentalism Nail Varnish for Spring/Summer 2012
Illamasqua Human Fundamentalism is their new spring/summer 2012 collection.
Human Fundamentalism features a bevy of beautiful colorful products, including two new nail varnishes.
Nomad is a bright jade green creme. Not mint but definitely jade. Not neon but definitely bright. Pretty good formula here, if not a little thick. It went on nicely in just two coats. I don’t think I have anything quite like it yet so it wasn’t a dupe for me!
Stance is a bright pink-based purple creme. This one is much brighter than the photo depicts. Thinner, more of a sheer formula than Nomad, and three coats to cover. I don’t think I love it though. It’s pretty but not really that unique in my eyes.
Availability: Illamasqua now.

In other nail related news…
As you can see, my nails here are really short. This is because the other night I cut them off in a jealous-movie-star-induced-nail-incident. What is that you ask? It’s when I watch a movie, see an actresses nails, and immediately want mine to look like theirs.
Mine were on the verge of being too long for my liking at the time. Then I watched Young Adult with Charlize Theron. There are a couple scenes where she’s getting a manicure, and her nails are really short, nicely rounded and so chic looking. Actually, I’m sure they aren’t really even her nails in the shot. In fact, they look much longer in this shot below than in the close-up scene.
So I decide within hours I HATED my square shaped horrid nails, and cut them all off. Of course now they look nothing like hers, and I am really annoyed at myself. I am horrible at shaping them (this might be the bane of my existence) so I don’t know what I expected to happen. But not this.
But it will happen again, I promise. It always does. Oh and did I mention I just got a ton of dark brown low-lights put in and now I want to be blond again? Damn you Charlize!!!!!!.;)
