I saw a brand new Milani display at CVS last weekend. They had to have just put it out as it was still all full. I wish I would have taken my camera.
I can’t believe my restraint, I chose just one….that time. Yesterday I went back and snagged 3 more (more on that in a forthcoming post). However, it was slim pickings.
This is the first one I picked up, Metal Gear…
This picture, out in the sun, captures this color perfectly. Foiled orange with a really high shine. Being rather new to this, I think Metal Gear would be classified as a foil. But boy, it didn’t act like your typical one. It went on smooth and without streaks.
Here it is in the sun:
This is after one day of wear. There is a bit of tip wear but I didn’t take the necessary steps to counter it. I used one BS, 2 coats of Seche Clear, 2 coats of polish, and finished with 1 coat Seche Clear then Seche Vite.
Here’s how it looked inside by a sunny window. High shine. And I think the shiniest orange I have ever seen. I’m not into orange polish because I don’t think it looks great against my blue-tone skin. However, Metal Gear is so pretty I’m willing to throw caution to the wind and wear it.
Today I’m getting a professional manicure to deal with the dead skin around the cuticles. I’m starting to pick at it, albeit with my cuticle trimmers. But I can’t seem to make it look clean. Oh, and a pedicure is apart of this day of luxury. 🙂
What do you think of this hot, summer color? Think it’s good for summer or, better off as a fall color? Both? And, do you like/wear orange polish? I’m very interested in your thoughts.
