Illamasqua Phallic - swatch and review

I've shown Phallic before but this time I've got a better picture of it for you ;)
It's quite hard to capture the shimmer and inner glow of Phallic actually but in this picture you get a fairly good idea of how it looks irl ;) But much more gorgeous live of course!!! :D
This is also my contribution to Mrs Data's Blue Monday ;)


GOOD TO KNOW:

Type of polish: Shimmer.

Colour: Deep midnight blue with lots and lots of blue shimmer that make it look like it's glowing from within!

Opacity: Very good!! This is two coats. If you do a thick coat you can get away with one.

Drying time: Normal.

Formula: Excellent!! It just glides on effortlessly! :D

Brush: Good! I also like that you can remove the big square cap and work with a smaller and thinner cap underneath. This feature can be found on all Illamasqua's polishes.

Shine: Very glossy, almost jelly-ish without a top coat, but in these pictures I've got one coat of Seche Vite.

Accurate colour, photo vs IRL: Colourwise correct, but it's soooo much more beautiful IRL!!! You have to see it live to see its full potential!!! Trust me!!!

Grade: 5+/5 :D

Do you like this midnight blue polish?
Are you a fan of polishes that are so dark that they 
are almost black but still coloured?

  1. Påminner lite om Gina Tricot Deep Sea som jag visar idag. Snyggt!

    1. Ja, de är lite lika. Mörkblå med skimmer i.
      Phallic är nog ännu mörkare dock och betydligt mer skimmer i så det blir sån där stark "inner-glow".
      Men så är det ju en avsevärd priskillnad också. Illamasqua är dyrt :/ GT är prisvärt och Deep Sea blev jag lite sugen på nu ;)

  6. Väldigt snyggt men det hade gärna fått vara en nyans ljusare tror jag :D

    1. Det hade säkert oxå varit snyggt, men det här lacket vinner på att vara mörkt för då lyser skimret ännu mer! :)

  7. Hi doll, lovelovelove it!!!! I actually owned it unteilbar couple of weeks ago and gave it to a good friend of mine since I have so many blackened blues with sparkle. My favorites are the RBL and Contrary Polish Bright Nights xxx
