NOTW: Milani Cosmetics Tattle Teal & Rainbow Prisms

01/07/2016

*Press sample*

So I recently decluttered a few things in my closet, rearranged my drawers and found that I had a massive amount of nail polish going unused. Mind you, I now have drawers where I can see each individual color, so I literally have no excuse not to organize them in such a way that I can easily find and use them. Milani Cosmetics Color Statement Nail Lacquer are an easy fave since they require no top coat. Let me show you this teal goodness!

All fingers: Milani Cosmetics Tattle Teal Nail Lacquer

Ring finger: Milani Cosmetics Tattle Teal Nail Lacquer with Milani Cosmetics Rainbow Prisms Nail Lacquer

Aren’t they gorg? This manicure lasted me about 4-5 days without chipping, I believe. Best thing of all? These polishes are only $3.99, cheaper than a polish change at your local nail salon. Be sure to check out my other Milani nail post here!

Clubbing Girl Nail Polish Review with Swatches

08/06/2015

When I said I would feature the rest of the Clubbing Girl polishes, I honestly didn’t think it would be the following day…SURPRISE! Today, I have an entire haul of the 6 polishes I received from Clubbing Girl, along with another nail of the day post. Fun right? Plus it gives me time to edit a makeup tutorial to post tomorrow 🙂 In this post, I used 2 colors, both glitters. I’ll start by showing you all the colors. If you’d like to see what each shade looks like inside the bottle, watch my video below!

1Aren’t they gorgeous in the bottles? They are just as amazing on the nails. I used the 2nd and 3rd bottle on my nails today, which are called Club Gold Digger and Club Birthday Bash, respectively.

3For Club Birthday Bash (on the ring finger), I used a light pink cream polish underneath, which I will feature in a separate post one day soon. Club Gold Digger is featured on the middle finger. It is super gorgeous. It is one of my favorites for sure. Just in case you missed yesterday’s post, I featured Sexy DJ and 2AM Dance Party.

4Be sure to check out my video above for closeups of all the colors. Come back tomorrow for a makeup tutorial. XOXO

Nail of the Day: Clubbing Girl Sexy DJ & 2 AM Dance Party

08/05/2015

*Press sample*

I am going to make a strong effort to feature nail posts here more often. I did like 2 and completely forgot about nails lol. In this post, I am sharing 2 of the 6 shades I received recently from Clubbing Girl. They actually specialize in jewelry mostly, but they recently launched a nail polish line that is actually pretty awesome. I chose Sexy DJ and 2 AM Dance Party to wear this time around.

12Sexy DJ actually looks pretty sheer in the bottle, but after 2 coats, opaqueness is the result. I actually did 3 coats to see if it would make a difference and it did. Maximum coverage! 3I also wore 2 AM Dance Party on my ring finger solo as an accent nail. Look how pretty it is! This color is the result of 2 coats of this polish.

I kid you not, this polish lasted a little over 4 days on my nails without chipping. The glitter nail actually chipped the fastest, more than likely because I piled that glitter on there without letting it dry enough in between coats and also without any real precision.

4I also received this plane ring from Clubbing Girl. It was only $5 and comes in gold too. Isn’t it awesome?

You can find Sexy DJ here and 2 AM Dance Party here. Stay tuned for more nail posts. They’re coming, I promise!

NOTW: Milani Cosmetics Imperial Purple & Club Lights

01/15/2015
So I have a confession to make…it is nearly impossible to keep decent looking nails working where I work. I work in the telecommunications industry and I’m constantly touching and taking equipment apart. I believe my nails along with my cuticles look pretty decent to say I do that on a full-time basis. Had to get that disclaimer out there before showing you my hit cuticles, yikes! They’re not that bad though, I promise. It’s still better than showing you my FEET!
 
Milani Cosmetics released these nail polishes some time back and I am just getting an opportunity to really try them out. I had acrylics for over half the year and I gave my nails some recovery time with nail strengthener. Though I’m not quite ready to get back into acrylics yet, I was more than excited to experiment with these nail polishes! I’m so mad I didn’t try these before now; they’re awesome! Take a look at the opaqueness 😉
 
Milani Cosmetics Imperial Purple

Polish shade: Imperial Purple
Glitter Polish: Club Lights
That purple is just gorgeous. I really could have worn one layer, but I have a habit of liking 2 or more. The shade above is a result of 2 coats. I also layered 2 layers of Club Lights on top of my ring finger.

Want to know a secret? I’m not wearing any top coat, only a base coat. Yeah, go ahead and scream at me. I find my polish lasts longer without it. When I must use a top coat, I generally go for Seche Vite. 
 
Side note: my nails lasted for 3 full days without chipping. That’s outstanding to say the least, especially with the work I do. 
 
Final verdict: I love these polishes from Milani. Expect more NOTW using more 🙂
