Load. Yes, you read that correctly: LOAD. I think my blog has always been PG-13 or maybe R at times so I apologize if Illamasqua is offending your sensibilities. Nothing really shocks me nowadays (Sinful Colors Beau Khaki anyone?) and I just kinda giggled every time I saw this polish. I finally decided to get it because I have been pretty obsessed with white/off white polishes lately Illamasqua Load was released in the 2011 Throb collection for Valentine’s Day of all things. haha!
Illamasqua Load is a milky and creamy off white polish with some yellow undertones. Not only have I been super obsessed with white polishes, but I am also a huge fan of yellow polishes as well because my mom always dressed me in yellow. I guess it brings back fond memories of being a kid. The formula on this was definitely not what I expected considering Illamasqua is usually perfection in a bottle. This color was beyond streaky and I never thought I would be able to get it to look right after the second coat. I decided to apply a thickish third coat and that seemed to do the trick.
Ok, I don’t know what I was thinking when I did this. I am not feeling the gold hex glitter at all. I think it looks kind of strange and it was a pain in the butt to apply since it is loose glitter. I got the idea of doing this after I saw Nicole’s poopy brown nails yesterday. Considering that we both agreed that we didn’t like them, I guess I had a brain fart when I went a head and took inspiration from them. I feel like I have ghetto gold on my nails!
It’s Wednesday so happy hump day! Are you looking forward to the weekend? I am because I may have more celebrations in store. That’s just how I roll. 🙂 Do you have any fun weekend plans? Oh, and I almost forgot to ask you: what do you think of Load? Is it something you would wear? Are you totally turned off by the name?
Thanks so much for stopping by today and catching up with me! Talk to you soon.
