Illamasqua Nomad

Hi everybody!

My last mani was Illamasqua Nomad.  According to Illamasqua, Nomad is a bright jade with a glossy finish.  I am a junky for minty turquoisey greens (as well as sky blues), so I threw this into my cart using the recent 15% discount at Sephora.  Here's the pics!

I've posted about Illamasqua's formulas before.  I have always found them a bit tricky as they seem to go on a bit streaky and dry a little more slowly between coats than other polishes.  If it weren't for a good cleanup brush (a First Kiss New York one that I picked up in Japan), it would be a lost cause.  Like I've said in the past, though, the colors tend to be so creative and unique that I'm willing to overlook the formula/application issues.  I'd say this one lasted a good four days without a chip.

Thanks for looking!
