I mentioned the Milani Jewel FX nail polish in a previous post here but thought I'd pop this similar NOTD post up to show how it looks when it's built up in a few layers.
The varnish itself doesn't smell too bad, dries relatively quickly, layers well without smudging and has amazing staying power. I expected this to chip like no-ones business but you can literally scratch at your nail and nothing will come off - I never use a top coat either! Only downside is that it does take a little while to remove.
It's certainly bling-tastic but not to the extent of being tacky, it adds a bit of glamour to nude nails and just makes your hands look really feminine!
It took 3 coats to get the nail completely covered in the little 'jewels' but I also used Gosh 'Holographic' as a base so if I missed any bits it wouldn't show and gives an almost mermaids tail effect.
I'm wearing short false nails in the photos, Sinful Colours 'Easy Going' is the nude shade on the rest of my fingers!
