Illamasqua 'Phallic'

Hi all!

For the first time ever, I took my nail polish off after less then a week of wearing it. Uh oh.. I think I'm catching the nail blogger curse of not wearing the same polish for more than a few days before needing to change it! So with that I have another gorgeous Illamasqua polish to show you all and it happens to be 'Phallic'!

Illamasqua's website describes it as 'a dark midnight blue with a shimmer finish' and that's exactly what it is! It's so incredibly gorgeous in the bottle, but as with a lot of shimmers it kinda gets a lost on the nail, but one of the charms of 'Phallic' is that you can still see a glint of gorgeous midnight blue shimmer winking at you in the sun.

It is sooooo incredibly gorgeous! I cant believe I haven't worn this sooner! I was lucky to receive this polish as well as Illamasqua 'Scorn' and a Sheer Lipgloss in 'Tantrum' after being a model for the Myer Sydney Illamasqua store a few months back for the Human Fundamentalism collection launch. Back to the polish. As with all Illamasqua shades, they are 2 coaters, you could get away with 1 thick coat but it can be a little patchy.

All pictures are 2 coats with 1 coat of Seche Vite quick dry topcoat.

I am so glad I got this polish, it was worth waiting for.

What are some of your favourite Illamasqua shades? Let me know in the comments.


  1. That sure is a beautiful color. I bet it would look great combined with Illamasqua's lipstick "Disciple". :)

    1. Yes, you are right! It would look wonderful :)
