Polish - Milani 2.0 From Liquid Metals


You know I love my near-blacks, so I had to pick this up. The finish on it is not quite foil like "I'm Online" but the finish is unique to my collection. The particle in the polish reminds me a little of Claire's Rockstar but more refined.

Color
Kara called it "Gunmetal" and she's right. It really is a good gunmetal color. It is a gray base loaded with silver particles. If you look really closely, some of the particles give off other colors (like pink or gold) but it is rare. It reminds me of Lippmann Hit Me With Your Best Shot, though it is definitely more silver in the bottle. I will have to swatch these side by side.

Application
Two coats, no problem. I have decided, however, that I  don't like Milani's brush. It's just too thin.


Wear
Using Qtica Nail Growth Stimulator and Seche Vite top coat, I do have some tip wear at the end of one day, but not horrible. That's good for me, really.

Bottom Line
If you're looking for a good gunmetal, run to your local CVS. This one is pretty (and cheap)!
