NOTD: Illamasqua Phallic

Phallic7Nail of the Day: I love this color, love love love. Illamasqua always makes great quality nail polish, in my experience, they apply smoothly, provide opaque coverage, are very chip resistant, dry reasonably quickly, offer a beautiful glossy finish, and don’t tend to fade or wear. However, the real star here is the color, not the formula, fantastic though it is. Phallic is a gorgeous deep, shimmery sapphire blue. My birthstone is the sapphire and I’ve always had a fondness for it and this lacquer has the same brilliance. Even though it’s a very dark color, when the sunlight catches the shimmer, there’s a brightness to it that I really love. It’s beautiful for winter and also a nice evening out color. I highly recommend not just this lacquer, but Illamasqua lacquers in general, though they have a high price tag, they’re definitely worth it!
