Illamasqua - Phallic

Hey guys!

Today I have another Illamasqua shade that my Dad so generously brought home for me when he was on vacation a couple of months ago. This one is called Phallic (insert immature giggling here) and as far as I know, it's part of Illamasqua's permanent range.


As you can see, Phallic is a rich navy with bright royal blue microglitter mixed throughout. It's really quite stunning and I can see this being one of my go-to full manicure shades in the fall/winter seasons.


My swatch is two coats of Phallic and as I've come to expect from Illamasqua, the formula is perfection. I'm not wearing top coat in my swatch photos, so you can imagine that it gets even shinier and that microglitter even brighter with a coat of top coat over it!


If there's one brand of polish that I would love to have more of in my collection, it's definitely Illamasqua. There isn't a single Illamasqua shade in my stash that I don't love!

So what do you guys think of Illamasqua Phallic? Is anyone else as in love with this brand as I am?

  4. My entire shopping list on Sephora contains my most wanted Illamasqua polishes. I have an obsession with them they are amazing in both color and application, don't get me started on wear time it's such a dream. I love when I have discount codes because at least 1 polish gets added to my cart :)

  7. Oh, I can only imagine how hilarious it'd be if I asked my dad to bring me back a polish named "Phallic". I can almost picture him at the store asking the SAs for it :U!

    Anyway, great swatch, looks beautiful on you! :)

  8. I am not going to lie: I've picked this up several times but the name... I just couldn't buy it! LOL But I need to get over that because the color is so stinking pretty!

  9. What a gorgeous blue! I don't currently have any lacquers from Illamasqua, but after seeing this swatch, that might change soon ;)

  10. Haha that's funny that your dad managed to pick a polish called "Phallic"! I'm sure he was very mature about it though :p Beautiful swatch.

  11. I have this polish. looks the same in the bottle, but maybe mine is a dud formula? on the nail mine borders a navy creme, and you only see the microglitter in sunlight, in front of your nose! did you have to shake it a lot to disperse the glitter? :)

  12. Here I am, another Illamasqua addicted.
    I've been in love with this brand since I saw Disciple lipstick pictures around the net.
    Last week they offered free international shipping, so I placed an order including Phallic, Baptiste, Poke, Hemlock and Faux Pas and I cannot wait to try them all!
