Milani Purple Gleam


  I love glitter but after this I'm taking a glitter break. My cuticles are begging for a break from the harsh glitter removal process. I just want to make a quick comment on my photos for this one. My camera was having a hard time capturing this color correctly. It just does not like photographing Purples.... Here is pics.

Milani Purple Gleam
1- Coat Glitter
This is the closest I could get to color accurate. 
  Purple Gleam is a Purple glitter... Just kidding it's so much more. At first glance it looks like Purple glitter but once on the nail I started noticing a mix of Purple, true Purple, glitter and what appears to be Black glitter! Black glitter! When will polish companies realize that Black glitter is HAWT! The formula is great, the glitter in this is a very fine micro glitter (like the glitter in OPI's Absolutely Alice) and it is PACKED in the base which makes this very easy to be built up if one coat is not enough.
  One coat was not enough coverage for me so for my mani I used two coats of Purple Gleam. This dries extremely gritty and kind of matte. I needed Two decent coats of Seche Vite to make it shiny and smooth. Bottom line, this is absolutely stunning. I'm happy to see that it is a true Purple glitter and the Black sparkle makes it so much more special.

Thanks for stopping by :)
