Stagnate by Illamasqua

stagnate illamasqua

This polish is from Illamasquas Toxic Nature collection. It was a precursor to the spate of paradoxal greyed purples, in that it was a muted brown-grey-purple. It’s a related shade on the colour chart perhaps, but the paradoxal shades all looked pretty where this shade (similarly to all the colours in that collection) is an ugly beauty. It truly calls to mind a stagnant puddle of water, dark with muck and slightly off natural shade.

While compared to any polish from another brand this is a long wearing polish, it definitely doesn’t wear as well as the later Illamasqua polishes although if memory serves me correctly it may have been better when ‘fresh’. The formula is self leveling and has a true to bottle shade match.
