So the big excitement of my haul from Walgreens was this beauty, Milani Nail Lacquer Jewel FX in Hot Pink. As requested, here is this stunner in swatches. I put 2 coats of it over Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Black Out which only took one medium coat. I topped it with one coat of Seche Vite. If you notice any tiny glints of glitter, I’ve been working on a very special project which I’ll be showing you soon!
Milani Jewel FX in Hot Pink is a mix of two hex glitters suspended in a nice clear base. So one type of glitters are distinct holos. These are brilliant and although they can be mistaken for silver from a distance, they are magnificent. Because of their larger size, you really see the reflections of rainbows varying from piece to piece. The other shade is what I imagine Milani feels is a hot pink whereas I see it as more of a dark pink bordering fushia in certain angles. These hex glitters are at what I would call a larger size, but that is just my take on it.
Application is like any larger size glitter, some assembly required. You always have to do some wiggling and such. I do love the clear base though, it was just the right consistency!
So did it live up to the hype? This was the most requested when I hauled it, will you be in search of it? I personally love it, especially over black. I think for spring I’ll put it over a nice lime or neon blue.
