Great color, applies evenly, and can go a week without chipping. This is one of my favorites in my stash and I would gladly fork over the money for it again.

*The second picture is of Nomad on my hands
I had a rough start relationship with Nomad and I but in the end result it was worth the effort. My guy would describe this as a "seafoam green" and I totally agree. I was actually looking for a color to be similar to China glaze For Audrey, and I believe this is more greenish. I absolutely adore the color, right from when I tried it on at Sephora. The reason why I had a rough start with Nomad was because I hate the formulation. Mine was really watery and wasn't opaque at all. It was watery in a goopy way and kinda sheer in one layer. Two layers fit the bill. Dry time was horrendous, so you really need to be patient with the wait time. I'm not too much of a fan of the packaging, it doesn't have the best grip for me, I mean the brush is small and the cap is big and squared so I have an awkward feel of holding it because it feels bulky. I would rate it 3 stars but the color is just so worth it.

Another quality polish from Illamasqua. It was almost opaque in one coat without being gloopy or thick. I had a slight issue with the formula; as the person below me mentioned, it isn't very forgiving and the second coat took a long time to self-level.
This is a very unique shade (I had no other mint green that was so vibrant in my stash) but my cool-toned skin couldn't pull it off; it looked like a very dirty neon on me. I recommend people with my skin tone to test it out at Sephora's nail bar before purchasing it.

I like this polish, don't get me wrong, still it did not convince me to classify as polish to be restocked for the following reasons: polish in my bottle was a tad too thick (some thinner will solve this). Application was fine if applied in smooth, even strokes. But it would not forgive any correction: polish drag and not too selflevelling. But I should have listed the positives first: if easy and quickly applied it is nearly opaque in one coat. Drying time is quick. Color is incredibly vibrant without being neon. Probably wearable for most skin tones, also on paler skins. Despite issues mentionned above, I will wear Nomad a lot this summer.

I love this color. It's a pastel green creme with a hint of teal and a hint of mint, very unique and difficult to describe in words. The formula was also great, opaque in two coats and not at all streaky, just the right thickness with a nice glossy finish even before the topcoat. The only problem I have with Illamasqua polishes is that they are not 3 free, but I can't help but buy them for the vibrant, creative colors.
