Today I have an old untried in my stash. Before Megan Chair stopped blogging, she posted a full mani done with the purple glitter Milani nail art polish. As soon as I saw it I went out and bought two of these (okay, I bought one - it took me a couple of weeks to hunt down a second) and decanted them both. I have no idea why it's taken me this long to wear them but when I saw Scrangie's recent post featuring this polish, it reminded me I had it.
Basecoat: NailTek Foundation II (new bottle, yay!)
Color: Milani Purple Nail Art (3 coats)
Topcoat: Gelous (1 coat)
Topcoat: Seche Vite (1 coat)
This is a pretty purple jelly PACKED with blue, pink, and purple glitter. It looks like a lighter, glitterier China Glaze "Flying Dragon". I own both but I'm not going to compare them.
Application was not too bad. This polish is pretty thick so it was easy to control where it went, but when I messed up it took a while to clean up. I actually took this photo the day after I applied it, because I had to resort to picking off the excess polish/glitter.
You really need to wear a topcoat with this. It dries semi-matte, but it feels like very rough sandpaper when dry. Much rougher than typical glitter polish. I used the Gelous/Seche topcoat trick and I probably could have used another coat of Seche. This polish "ate" topcoat - the night I applied it it was almost perfectly smooth, but when I woke up the next morning, it was all bumpy.
I imagine this would be a pain to remove. I actually picked this off (as I do with almost every polish, sigh) so... yeah. You'll probably want to use the foil method to remove this.
