Illamasqua Polishes

I knew as soon as I saw the promo pictures for Illamasqua Load that I was going to be getting it. I waited patiently for a month before calling Sephora in a panic to ask if they were going to be getting Load in. The woman on the line told me they were expected the middle of March. Well, the middle of March came and went and I panicked again. Finally, Load was in stock. And of course I bought Milf because you can't just get one polish- it would be lonely!
Load and Milf.

This is 3 coats of Load.

Load was more yellow than I was expecting. Illamasqua describes it as an "off white" but I don't think it's quite that. I would describe it more as a butter-cream frosting color.

Personally, I love it. It's very unique in my stash!

I also can't resist a dirty play on words. Well played, Illamasqua, well played.

This is 2 coats of Milf.

Milf is a light pastel green creme.

I wasn't too impressed with this one. The color wasn't unique enough for me to justify this purchase.

I got a bit bored and stamped with Konad plate M60 and white Konad polish.

My nails look like golf socks!

I had fun with this one and I think I'm getting back in the swing of nail stamping.



  1. Great swatches! I'm not sure I'd wear Load but Milf is calling the green lover in me LOL.. And your stamping makes it look even more gorgeous, perfect for spring and easter <3

  2. These do look nice. I'm still resisting this brand, afraid if I get one or two I'll want tons more. :)

  3. I love both of these polishes, but I don't have either. I gave up on Load because it kept being sold out on Sephora online...I guess I should check back!

  4. I've always wanted to have some Illamasqua polishes but unfortunately they're not sold in my country

  5. I was interested in Load until I started reading about it needing 3 coats! I want my Illamasquas to be 1-2 coaters, dangit!

    So sorry you don't like Milf that much :( It's my HG mint green, because it's just the right shade for my skintone and doesn't give me lobster hands!!

  6. I only really like Milf, Load looks similar to a Sinful Colors polish.

  7. I like them both!

    LOL at the last "LOAD!"

  8. Do you know any dupes or similar polishes to Milf? I *looove* the color but it's a bit pricey. Thanks!
