MILANI Polish of the Week review!

p1_Fotor

At exactly seven days today from when I applied this MILANI COLOR STATEMENT NAIL LACQUER on my nails and shared to everyone my Polish of the week!. I am going to give a quick review and show you how they’re doing.

I’ve been checking my nails since day 1 to see if there’s any chipping.

Day 2 – The color is still vibrant

Day 3 – No chip or Cracks

Day 4 – I still have my nail polish and nails on.. LOL 🙂

Day 5 – I did find one noticeable chip on my right pointing fingernails. That was because I used this nail to remove staples on the paperwork that I was working on (we do have a staple remover at work you know, but sometimes you just have to let those fingers work..LOL).

Day 6 – My nails were put to the test. I did some general house cleaning, cooked and put my Christmas Tree down (If only I can keep them on all year-round) but these nail lacquer stayed strong and didn’t give up. Though you will notice some fading on the tip of my nails but that’s normal.

Day 7 – I realized that I am beginning to love the formulation of this MILANI COLOR STATEMENT NAIL LACQUER. I am impressed with the staying power, the variety of shade options, the quality, packaging, quick dry AND super affordable too which is a HUGE Plus!

Polish of the week!

thumb_head_1024

Here I go again with my other obsession. Nails, nail polish, nail art or anything related to nails makes me happy. This is just a quick post to show you what I did with my nails this week.

Recently I posted a Beauty Haul! and if you’ve checked it out I’m sure you’ve seen some of the MILANI Color Statement Nail Lacquer that I bought.

I wanted to use all the shades that I purchased because they’re just really beautiful but I didn’t want to look funny specially at work so I settled with two shades instead.

In case you’re wondering how I divided the colors,

  • First, of course I need to apply a Base Coat (OPI)
  • second, I painted my nails with the shade Pink Beige
  • then I had to let it dry.
  • placed a clear tape to cover the other part of my nail and since I didn’t have a proper nail accessory, I ended up using a clear tape “be innovative” you know. 🙂
  • then I applied the shade Mauving Forward
  • and finished it with Milani’s Quick Dry Top Coat

I know.. I know.. it’s not great! but practice makes perfect right?

Just an insight, this MILANI COLOR STATEMENT NAIL LACQUER is very smooth, very thick and super rich in color. It does have a glossy finish in just one coat and is available in a variety of different finishes – cream, sheer, metallic or with glitters and comes in 37 shades. It didn’t say that this nail polish is a quick dry though but it felt like it is. However, since the Top Coat is definitely a quick dry, then that made this nail polish to dry even quicker.

And.. voila!

Beauty Haul!

Untitled_Fotor

There are two reasons why I shop, one is because I’m stressed and two because I want them and would like to take them home with me. I know I said it in my last post  “Goals..Goals..Goals..” that I will try to Spend Less and Save More. So this time, I did spend less.

It’s been a while since I’ve shared my last haul post “Mini-lipstick-Haul!” so I guess it’s time for me to share some today.

MILANI Color Statement Nail Lacquer

These nail polishes cost $3.95 at Walmart but I only paid 97 cents for each as they were on sale.

thumb_IMG_6804_1024_Fotor I love the range of colors that they have, the formulation looks really good too and the packaging is just elegant. That made me so excited to buy them (aside from the price of course), now I cannot wait to try them very soon.

Now, let’s talk about face products.

Another repurchased item here is the MAYBELLINE Fit Me Concealer in the shade SAND. One of the best concealer I’ve ever tried. Non-drying, not “cakey” either, very smooth and very easy to blend too. Definitely a Must-Have.

Finally! I’m able to lay my hands on this lipstick from Rimmel The Only One Lipstick, 120 You’re all mineI’ve been seeing photos and advertisements on this lipsticks all over the net and now I got one myself. The quality of this lipstick is awesome. It smells like the Rimmel Lasting Finish By Kate Lipstick collection but as always, not too overwhelming.  The shade option is quite limited but I’m hoping that they will come up with more new shades for a better color options.

Milani Power Lip Lasting & Moisturizing Lip Stain, Strawberry Sugar 06

I’ve never heard much buzz about this Milani Power Lip Gloss Stain. I’ve purchased one before just out of curiosity but I ended up loving it. Now I thought why not add one more gloss stain in my lipstick collection and see if I will adore this shade as well. This is truly a stain because it stays on for a while, another good thing about this product is that, it doesn’t dry your lips out.

If you’ve tried this item, please let me know what you guys think?

Rimmel London in You’re All Mine and Milani Power Lip Gloss Stain in Strawberry Sugar

I couldn’t help myself but grab another Powder Brush from Elf Cosmetics. They are just one of the best and most affordable brushes out there.

Last but not the least, is my new favorite Covergirl The Super Sizer by LashBlast(r) Mascara, 800 Very Black. I don’t know what took me so long to purchase this mascara though I’ve seen and heard so many beauty bloggers and beauty gurus talked about this.

thumb_IMG_6836_1024_FotorThe wand looks really tiny and seemed like it can’t even give you volume or length, but hey! don’t get fooled by it because this tiny wand is AWESOME! I love how it makes my lashes look long, black and with more volume. This mascara stays on and keeps the curl really well for a long time. It doesn’t flake and didn’t irritate my eyes too. Great for top and bottom lashes. I love this!

And that’s it for now, let me know if you want to see a “Fashion Haul” post too!

Until next time…
