Milani Blue Lightening
Blue Lightening (I keep trying to spell lightening correctly!) is part of Milani’s latest collection MEWOW Look At My Nails!, which features a few new high speed fast dry polishes. I didn’t think much about this shade based on the press release picture, but after reading what NouveauCheap wrote on her blog….I knew there was more to it than my first impression.
Blue Lightening had a lot of promise when seen in person. At least just based on looking at the bottle. There is some duochrome yumminess going on in there! I mean, just look at it! I kept tilting the bottle back and forth to see the color change. Formula was nice and smooth. It dries really fast and it’s not gritty like most sparkly shades, probably cause it’s a glass fleck sparkle instead of glitter. I do believe that this shade can pass for the one coat formula that it claims to be. I tend to apply very thin coats, so I ended up using more than one. Shown is 2 thin coats with no top coat.
My only complaint is I can’t really see the duochrome that much. It doesn’t show up in the pictures at all for me, but it’s there in person. Don’t expect buying this and being blown away by being a duochrome. I do love the glass fleck sparkle in this beautiful blue. It’s simply stunning, don’t you agree?
Shades from the MEWOW Look At My Nails! Collection should be available in select Walgreens stores this month nationwide for about $4.99 each. You can also grab these on their website while they still have ’em.
