Milani’s Tailor Made Doesn’t Fit

When pondering what polish to pick for my next pedicure, I purposely promised to parlay pink.

OK. I just made that up. And if anyone else has made up the same line, just Goggle ‘The Hundredth Monkey.’

I did ponder what to choose next. There was this blue that I kept looking at through the clear container of untrieds. It seemed like it was beckoning. Since I feel it’s a Summer shade, I thought it would be fitting to do this one on the last weekend of Summer.

Here’s a last hurrah for Summer…

Not a new polish, but I like the shade. This is Milani’s ‘Tailor Made.’ It’s a powder, pale blue that has a hint of a shimmer to it. I wouldn’t say frost because it doesn’t quite have the sheen to it, so I’m calling it a shimmer.

Top is direct sunlight and just above, shade. Oh, it was a pistol to work with! I have on FOUR coats! And I did the index finger FOUR different times. I kept smudging it. The last two times I looked like I was pontificating…

Of course, that is something I, personally,

And even after that, ‘Taylor Made’ left bald spots and was patchy. Ugh. So, I did what any disreputable company would do; I covered it up and pretended there wasn’t a problem.

OPI’s ‘Last Friday Night’ to the rescue.

From a distance, it makes it a tad better. I think it is a good couple, though. This is one coat of  ‘Last Friday Night.’ I only wasted used one, thick coat of ‘LFN’ then off it came. I wasn’t pleased at all with how this mani turned out. Sorry, Milani, this one just makes me go on and on about how it falls short.

Do you know the difference between pontificating and a soliloquy? I asked my hubs and he just gave me a side-ways glance. I spent the next 15 minutes explaining it to him.
