All That Glitters Isn't Gold...

It's Gems, too! Sorry today's manicure is a quickie, I worked both jobs today- it was my first day of training at the new job!! 14 hrs of work+ bathing = not much time to do pretty nails.

However, I had these new polishes that I grabbed from Milani's latest and greatest (not officially set to release until Feb, but a few CVS stores have done a pre-release. These polishes are amaaaaaazing. Most of them (not the FX) are one-coat glitters (yes, you read that right!!)

This manicure is SOOOO reflective, but also SUPER thick, since I layered about 90 coats of the gold to get full coverage. :-P



I used Milani Gold FX as a base, with Milani Gems FX sponged on the tips. Topped it all off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

  11. I just picked up one of the Milani One-Coat Glitters last night at my local CVS. I don't have the bottle in front of me to tell you the name, but it was the purple/fuchsia glitter (and I'm in LOVE with it). I'm going to go back and get more since I have a $5 off $25 coupon, but I'm waiting for a sale :)

  12. That is SO glittery! I think it'd almost be thick enough that you could just peel it off... :)
