Force
Skin Tone: Fairest, Skin Type: Normal-to-Dry, Undertone: Pink

Based on temptalia and others’ swatches, I reckon I got a dud bottle of Force (however, a dud bottle of Illamasqua is still decent by other brands’ standards). Whenever I put top coat on mine, it darkens the colour in patches and leaves drag marks. I know, I know, it sounds like “you’re just putting top coat on too early, fool” but one time I tested this by putting top coat on several hours after painting my nails and I still had this issue. Oh well. I might repurchase if I see it on sale, coz even with this issue, it’s still very long-wearing and pigmented.

I love this color! It’s gorgeous and unique! I always get compliments when I have it on. I love that it’s long-wearing and doesn’t need a top coat (although I still use one out of habit). I would definiately purchase this again!

Stance
Skin Tone: Fair, Skin Type: Combination, Undertone: Neutral

My experience with this product could be better. The color is beautiful and the product is highly pigmented in just one coat. But with this color, I recommend starting off with one sheer coat first. My bottle of this product was very thin and runny compared to my other Illamasqua nail varnishes. And it’s best to always wear a base and top coat with this polish because it looks cheap and weird by itself. But this is just experience with this particular varnish I purchased. I am also disappointed that the price went for these polishes. I just don’t have money to be dropping on these polishes unless they exceed my standards.

I have been hesitant to spend this kind of cash on nail polish, but this has won me over. I put it on Tuesday (with Zoya’s Anchor and Armor) and it is now Sunday and I have no chips and no tip wear to speak of either – it still looks freshly applied. Zoya polish usually has noticeable tip wear on me by this point, and other polishes rarely last past 3 days without chipping, so I’m seriously impressed, especially since it’s black.
It’s a pretty black with evenly distrubuted silver sparkles, and mine had a few random holographic sparkles in it too, it seemed. Love this!

It is a beautiful black shade, the silver sparkle looks wonderful under the light. It applies evenly and smoothly, without any streaks. You only need two coats for full coverage. It has a glossy finish and lasts a lot on me, about a week without chipping. I love the formula and the color so I totally recommend it if you are looking for a “special” nail varnish.
