Abstract Illamasquatch!

Hi Readers!  Did you read that right??? Illamasquatch instead of Illamasqua?  Yep you sure did!  My friend Kim admitted awhile ago she had trouble pronouncing Illamasqua and then she referred to it as Illamasquatch and ever since I just call it that because honestly it's hysterical!  It seems in the world of nail polish there are a few of them people aren't sure how to pronounce.  Seche Vite--my mom always calls is Skesh Ka Veet which cracks me and my sisters up. Nfu-Oh which I say New Fo but others say En Eff You Oh.  NYX which I always call En Why Ex although I believe it's Nix as in Goddess of the Night.  And of course Illamasqua which is Ill Ah Mah Squaw.
I have 4 Illamasqua's and they are are all truly gorgeous.  My friend Rachel of Cherry Glam Girl got every one of them for me and whenever I wear them I think of her!
I saw this look somewhere but I just can't recall!  I think it was a DIY site--I'd link it but again just can't remember where I saw it lol!
Basically I just made shapes on my nails not necessarily touching and then filled it in the space with gold.
The Illamasqua's are so rich and regal looking.  I used Baptiste, Viridian and Scarab.  To fill in I used Funky Fingers.
Here's a pic of the polishes I used
Do you have Illamasqua's if yes which one is your favorite?  Any on your wishlist?  I just have 2 on my wishlist Scorn and Muse.  Hopefully someday I'll snag both of these.  

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you all have a fantastic day!


  1. Love it. The church we went to downstate had these sort of abstract narrow stained glass windows that were richly colored glass chunks set in gold metal and that is what this reminds me of. I know I'm going to have to break down and 'embrace the Llama' sooner or later because I know how nice these polishes are.

    1. You need some llamas!!! They are really gorgeous!

  2. This looks great!
