When I saw Load in the Illamasqua sale I was going to pass on it but then I saw this was a big lemming for many people. When I googled it to look at swatches, I couldn't find any for my skin tone, and then some pictures made it look too white, others too yellow and so I wasn't sure if it would look good on me, but I decided to get it and if I didn't like it I'd pass it on to someone who wanted it ! 
Anyways I'm happy to report that I love it, I've worn it about 5 times since I got and that is not like me at all! 
Remember I told you I'm on a glequin kick well this mani was not left alone, haha ! So I painted all my nails with 3 coats of Illamasqua load (the formula was good, maybe a tad streaky but otherwise good! I've included plain swatches at the end of the post) then I used the holographic gold hex glequins and applied them on my ring finger in lines and on the thumb in a honeycomb pattern (I only realised this after I'd completed the mani, doh!)

3 coats of Illamasqua Load alone ! Love it ! 

So so glad I got this, just wish I'd got a backup! Do you guys have this?

  1. Quite a pretty mani!! I don't have Load and couldn't find it when i was at Sephora this weekend: :( I want this shade !!

  2. I LOVE Load so much! I have yet to see it look unflattering on someone! It was a huge lemming of mine, till I got it a few months ago. Absolutely love it (and now that I think about it, I think I should wear it again!).

    Love the accent nails you did too. Wish I had more patience to play with glequins again.

  3. Aaah that polish is amazing! And those holo glitters are stunning paired up with it =)
    I saw your comment on my page about the email so I thought i'd reply over here too. I haven't received any emails from you and I did check again just now to make sure but it seems like it never came through to me. Sorry about that.
    You wouldn't mind sending it to me again would you?

  4. Lovely manicure :)
    I don´t have Load, in fact I do not own any polish by Illamasqua, I really would want to though :) Maybe I can find a page to order it from :)
