 So without further adieu let’s begin.

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!
