Blue Depth

So deep you will get nitrogen narcosis if you come up for air too fast.

Illamasqua Phallic.

Sometimes, just sometimes, photography happens for me.

I. Mean. Really. I. Am. Dying. Here!

Three coats and a no top coat. 

Purchased a long time ago, but not sure where. I put off swatching it because in the bottle it seemed to be a fairly generic navy glass fleck. Oh. Hail. No.

I don't mean to gush, but I am in love with this baby.

Not sure if my photos do it justice, but this has such depth and beauty I was loath to remove it!

Unfortunately Illamasqua no longer sold by US retailers, but Illamasqua does ship to the US. As I was writing this, I poked my nose into their site, but I it was down and I couldn't see if Phallic is still available, which I think it is, when I looked at their site about 6 months ago.

Meanwhile, if you do get a chance to get one glass fleck navy, you probably need this rather than just want it. The formula, color payoff and just gorgeously is absolutely 5 out of 5, should I rate polishes. 

Thanks for reading my little nail polish journal!


  1. I'd say there's reason to gush. This is GORGEOUS.

    1.'s pretty much the standard bearer of all navies!

  2. oh man too bad I've missed out on all the illamasqua polishes. This one looks super amazing, I'll have to add it to my wish list with Bacterium. There needs to be more polishes with this kind of finish. *drools*

    1. I agree! Hautelook occasionally puts Illamasquas on sale, I definitely grabbed a backup at their most recent sale.

    2. woo managed to get one on Hautelook this week , and Bacterium. It basically made my week. :-) I always ignore the Hautelook emails, but I started watching them since you mentioned it, thanks for the tip !!

    3. Yaaay!!! I love when those are available, I grab a few more for my collection.

      Wheee hawww!!!
