Simple Nail Art With Milani

Earlier this year I struck manicure gold when I did these stunning nails with my beloved China Glaze 2NITE holo polish. Since I liked the look so much I decided to do something similar with some Milani polishes. Here we have Milani Fresh Teal with a wide strip of Milani HD. I love it & it's so easy!

Milani Fresh Teal

Milani Fresh Teal is shown here at 2 coats. Milani Neons like this one have been popping up at Dollar Trees around the country recently so keep an eye out if you like neons! Fresh Teal has a good formula and is a definite keeper for me. The only thing I don't like about this line is the painted bottles. The polish color is actually quite different than the bottle but if you can find it for a buck they are a great value.

Milani Blue Flash & Purple Gleam Are Accidental Texture Polishes!



When I tried the amazing Zoya Pixie Dusts I noticed the formulas reminded me of two older Milani polishes that I love, Purple Gleam & Blue Flash. If you read my earlier blog posts, I mention that they dry matte & gritty. Since the texture craze hadn't started yet, I added two coats of topcoat & took my photos. Anyway, I pulled them out to see how they compared to my Pixie Dusts & you can see the results for yourself. Now I have an amazing dark purple & a lovely blue to add to my sparkly textured polish collection. Purple Gleam & Blue Flash are One Coat Glitters from Milani's Rockstar Heavy Glitter Collection & it looks like there might be a few more accidental Pixie Dust type polishes in there!

Layering With Lime Crime Pastelchio & Milani HD

I've been meaning to try using Milani HD as a holographic topcoat & I thought Lime Crime Pastelchio would be fun to use as a base color. I had to be a bit careful when applting to keep it from being streaky but it worked pretty well. I would love to have an actual neon lime green holo polish!

Milani Purple Gleam


Another amazing Milani One Coat Glitter, I think I love this one even more than Blue Flash! Milani Purple Gleam is an orchid purple & black micro glitter polish that covers well in just two coats. Dries a bit gritty & matte so needs a couple of coats of topcoat, but totally worth it. Wait a few minutes between coats to avoid dragging. Drop dead gorgeous!

Milani Blue Flash & Some Nail Art


This is two coats of the super sexy Milani Blue flash. Easy to apply  as long as you wait a few minutes between coats. It dries a bit gritty & with a matte finish so it needed a couple of coats of topcoat but it's well worth it in my opinion. Gorgeous deep teal & sparse black micro glitter!
One of my new favorite books, Among Others by Jo Walton, also happens to have a pretty cover.
 
The next day I add a bit of China Glaze Ruby Pumps. I love this manicure, super hero glitter nails!

Milani 3D

 
I  won my first Milani polishes from Maria of Nails Made Simple. Be sure and check out her great blog if you haven't already done so.
This is 2 coats of Milani HD. I love holos this has a nice formula but most golds don't look so great on me. I think I'll be passing this one on to a new home.

Milani HD & One OF My Favorite Manicures Of This Year


I  won my first Milani polishes from Maria of Nails Made Simple. Be sure and check out her great blog if you haven't already done so.
This is 2 coats of Milani HD. I love holos! Nice formula and all around gorgeous polish. 
The next day I used 2 strips of tape to form a triangle and then filled it in with one coat of Zoya Faye, one of my favorite polishes. I love the effect! Faye is just sheer enough that the holo effect still shows through.

Milani Hi-Tech & Stripes

I  won my first Milani polishes from Maria of Nails Made Simple. Be sure and check out her great blog if you haven't already done so.
This is 2 coats of Milani Hi-Tech. I love holo polishes and this is no exception. Nice formula and all around gorgeous polish.

The next day, I decided to add some simple stripes in China Glaze Cherish. Sometimes the simplest ideas turn out the best. I really love this manicure! Freehand stripes were very easy with Cherish since it's so pigmented.
