Illamasqua Stance

Today I've got a stunner to share with you- this is Illamasqua Stance. It's a very saturated, nearly neon, bright pink/purple. The formula, as usual with Illamasqua, was flawless. What you see here was two coats:


Isn't she gorgeous? Definitely an attention-grabber.


I think this is a pretty unique shade, although now that I think about it, Zoya Charisma has a similar kind of feel to it (neon pink/purple), but if I recall correctly it's not as pigmented. I'll do a comparison post in the future between these two.


What do you think of Illamasqua Stance? I'm pretty crazy about it, I must admit!


The first time I wore this polish was to a Janelle Monae concert; I love how I always associate certain lacquers with notable events that occurred while I was wearing them. It makes me love them all the more. Do you do the same thing?

I'll leave you with an awesome Janelle Monae video (if you haven't checked her out before, I highly recommend it!):

  1. It's gorgeous for sure - I recently got my first Illamasqua, it was Poke...
    Yes I too associate polishes, or rather a design/mani with events :)
