Yesterday, my sweetheart and our daughter went to CVS to get some saltine crackers and Motts Tots Apple Juice for her upset tummy and when they came back, there was a little surprise in the bag.
I took out a Milani nail polish. "Pretty," I said. "Do you want me to paint your nails later?" I asked my daughter. She, of course, said yes. That's when my sweetheart steps in and says, "It's supposed to be for you." Awww. It turns out our daughter picked out the color. She picked out something she thought I would like. And I did like it. The nail polish looks like Dorothy's ruby red slippers--only silver.
I have never used any product in the Milani line. This is my very first one!
And this is what she picked out...
ONE COAT GLITTER
522 SILVER DAZZLE
0.45 FL OZ 13.2 mL
Price at CVS $1.25 SAVED $3.74!
The color like I said reminds me of the ruby slippers in The Wizard of Oz. It is so glittery! It is a very dark silver. Almost like a light black??? (I am horrible at describing colors...) The glitter is silver. They sparkle like a dress on the red carpet. It is very pretty.
The texture is rough on my nails once it dries completely. The glitter is not as fine as it is in my other nail polishes in my collection. This is the first one I have that feels this way. I have read on other blogs that applying a top coat over this will smooth out the finish. I didn't do that because I do not have a top coat right now. But honestly, the finish doesn't bother me. It's different to me, that's all. I like the color and the sparkle and the way it looks on me.
I only applied one coat because on the bottle it says ONE COAT GLITTER. I do think once coat gives you a very nice application with so much glitter. There were a few spots that could have used more glitter to even out the appearance but a second coat would have fixed that problem.
The problem I did have was that by the end of the day, my nails were starting to chip on the tips of a couple nails. That is usually the problem I have with nail polish as I assume most of you do. Right not the chipping is on two nails. Not major at all. Really doesn't bother me.
Over all, I do like this nail polish. I like how it looks. I like the shade. I like how one coat did seem to be enough to cover the entire nail pretty evenly. I don't have time to do my nails, never mind having to sit and wait for one coat to dry before I can apply a second one. I am afraid to remove the nail polish though because of the glitter. Glitter is a tough accessory to remove. Even the fine sparse micro glitter in my other nail polishes can be a hassle.
I'm just happy that they thought of me. I do have a sweet family. Even though they only paid $1.25 for it, it means a lot to me. I'm a frugalista. Instead of saying, "You ONLY paid a $1.25 for this?" I'm more like, "You ONLY paid a $1.25 for this!!" I love saving money.
Even though this isn't a review, it was a mini semi review. All I need to know now is the wear of it and how hard it is to remove after a few days. I might review this. As for right now, I'm happy with my little gift.
Thanks for stopping by!
