I love anything that sparkles, and when I spot a pretty glitter polish, it’s pretty hard for me to not toss it in my cart. Despite the P.I.T.A. glitter polishes are to remove, I think they’re so much fun! Milani has a big variety of glitter polishes to choose from. If you like smaller, more uniform glitter, you have to check out the Holographic and One Coat Glitter polishes. But if you’re a fan of large, chunky glitter, the Jewel FX polishes are for you.
I recently picked up Milani Lavender Jewel FX Nail Lacquer, and decided to experiment a little bit with it today. I painted some glitter tips, and thought I’d quickly share my NOTD!
I used three coats of Wet n Wild 2% Milk, two coats of Milani Lavender Jewel FX and then used the Milani Art of Silver Nail Art polish to create a silver, glittery line across the tip.
From the left to right: Wet n Wild 2% Milk Megalast Nail Color, Milani Art of Silver Nail Art Nail Lacquer and Milani Lavender Jewel FX Nail Lacquer.
Wet n Wild 2% Milk is one of my frequently used “no polish” polish. Most sheer, light nail polishes apply streaky, but because of the thick, flat brush of the Megalast polishes, it yields minimal streaks. I’ve gone through so many Essie polishes, and haven’t liked any of them. This one is only $2 and it beats them all! I also like using Sugar Coat for a pinker alternative.
I think I might get a couple more of the Jewel FX polishes. They are great glitters to use for a statement nail, as the glitter is really chunky and metallic – it almost gives off a foiled look.
