Swatches: Milani Jewel FX.

I've had the chance to try out all the polishes I got from Milani so here's some swatches of the final three.

Silver


Gems

Gold
(my baby nail broke so tried to keep it out of the photo but instead ended up with a creepy looking hand)

For all 3 I used base coat, 2 thick layers of polish and top coat. The polish is easy enough to apply, you just have to make sure you spread it evenly and try not to leave any chunks of glitter upright or they will catch on everything. Silver and Gold are in clear bases with the same sized 'jewels' throughout. Gems is also in a clear base but with smaller flecks of glitter among the multi-coloured larger chunks.

Out of the 6 Milani polishes I've tried, I didnt experience any chipping at all. I wish they were easier to get hold of here in the UK, the prices are brilliant and the formulations are far better than I ever expected.

    1. I was thinking the same but havent saw Rainbow Connection in person yet. Did you ever get yours? Still not having any luck commenting on your posts, so strange. I love the look of Lightscapade, if they're ever available again I'll be like a woman on a mission untill I own it.

    2. Still haven't received mine. The seller keeps telling me she's getting stock next weekend (this has been going on for six weeks). I don't want a refund though, I just want my 'item'!! I'll leave it another week or so then report her to eBay. Wonder why you still can't comment on my posts? Wonder whether Blogger has some way I can get in touch with them about this? I am in actual love with Lightscapade.. I've worn it constantly. So beautiful. I really want to get another one with more blue veining if they're even re-promoted because the one I got isn't the most amazing looking! x

    1. I got them from a site called CherryCulture, I think Milani is an American brand, I've never saw them in the UK sadly.
