Polish - Milani I'm Online From Liquid Metals

I sort of went nuts when @AquilahR started tweeting about the Milani Liquid Metals Limited Edition collection and had to go get three of them for myself. Here's one of them.


I can't help but think I've seen this color before, though I'm not certain where. Like it feels like a polish out of my childhood. For all I know it could be.There is some similarity to Chanel Wonderland, though Wonderland was hardly as much of a foil as this, nor is it as pigmented. I love foil polishes. I really do. And I was confused as to why I gravitated toward this pink. Maybe it's because I didn't pick up the Orly collection...

Color
Blush/pink-champagne colored foil-finish polish. For me that should equal instant love, right? Wrong! Read on...

Application
"I'm Online" could be a one-coat polish, but two to be on the safe side. But be careful: this polish shows more flaws in your application and your nail than any other polish I have ever tried. Make sure your nails are smooth and that your base coat has no bubbles, that you've removed every spec of polish from previous applications. My previous polish was Zoya Ivanka and some lingering specs of glitter caused me issues!


Wear
Can't complain - it's holding on tight with a base of Qtica Nail Growth Stimulator and Seche Vite top coat.

Bottom Line
CVS and other retailers of Milani polishes sometimes do a BOGO offer. I would wait for one of those to get this polish.

I purchased two other colors in the Milani Liquid Metals limited edition line. I am curious to see how they compare. I suspect the darker colors (which I chose) will be more forgiving than the lighters. We shall see!
