Illamasqua Inspiration and Stash.

Hey guys! So has everyone seen Illamasqua Human Fundamentalist collection? Their press release is AMAZING! I am in love with the photos so much. The bold colours and original make up artistry is spectacular. I love Illamasqua as a brand. They are super creative and inventive!

I wanted to imitate the colours of the nails in the first photo, the reverse manicure. But I showed you that a week ago so I decided to do a taped mani. Now I am not very good with taped mani, so this is not exactly the neatest manicure.

 I used China Glaze For Audrey as my base and then CG Flying Dragon for the purple and then OPI Divine Swine. These are colours I don't use often, but I LOVE them together. They aren't exactly the colours Illamasqua have released with this colection, For Audrey is too blue and Flying Dragon is a lot darker. I think I'll need to save my monies and head to DJ's to buy me some!

Side note: I got really bored a few nights ago and put my nail polish collection in colour order.
I can't remember the exactly number of polishes I have but it's about 120. Which, when you hear that people like Jen from The PolishAholic has over 1800, my humble little stash is nothing. The white shoe boxes draws underneath the coffee table is where I keep them all. At the moment I fill up two big shoe boxes but they are completely full and I'll need a new box when I buy more polish!

  1. Your taping looks great. I love the colours you used.
    So do you get to buy new shoes when you need a new box?

    1. Thank you! Ummm... funny should ask. I "accidentally" bought 3 pairs of shoes the other day. But it's not too bad they I only spend $150 in total.
