Hello! FIRST! I must warn you that I have a lot to say about the following polish!
Today I want to show you the hardest polish to capture on camera! You will see in a few pictures that it almost looks like they are completely different colors. I think its just my camera, because after this I have another purple polish that doesn’t look like how it is when I have it in my hand or on my nails. But maybe partly it does seem a bit different outdoors.
Milani Purple Passion is 3 coats with Sally Hansen Insta dri top coat. This is really smooth and has a hidden blue and pink shimmer that is really stunning outdoors. There was some bubbling but I’m not sure if that had something to do with my top coat?? I will have to re- swatch and update about the bubbling….. These are all outdoors, some are outdoors with a diffused flash.
When I was outside swatching this it all looked like the same thing I was looking at with my own two eyes at the moment. When I started looking at them on my computer I noticed the very first two pictures where NOT even close to being the same color. Then I put my finger next to the screen and was like “Whoa! This looks more blue then purple!”
That is actually compared to the picture above and it leads me to believe my camera just want’s it to be BLUE. So, thats STILL not exactly right. Imagine if you will….a little lighter, more of a royal purple color. Thats what it looks like inside. Sorry this ended up very disappointing. Still a pretty color, just wish my camera didn’t freak out!!!
Here it is with Milani One coat Glitter Purple Gleam
If you’re wondering- this is one coat, a slightly thick one with SH topcoat. It wasn’t clumpy either. This is made up of mostly purple and black glitter in a (very light) black tint base. I had to spread it out very thin with a nearly dry brush on a white piece of paper to even be able to tell that the base was very lightly tinted. That’s how densely packed this is. Its a little on the gritty side when dry and definitely needs a top coat. I used 2 coats of top coat for the following pictures.
Hello and welcome! If you’re new here you should check out the last 3 posts so that the next statement makes sense. This is the last of “the ugly hangnail” photos. Again, I apologize!
Sinful Color’s Zeus is from their spring Cast Away collection. I’m hoping the display is still up, there are a few other’s I would like. The collection has a lot of blues, some purples and a few greens. I think maybe they’re all exclusives to the line except for maybe one.
Zeus may be a dupe for something but I can’t think of it and I don’t own any!
The formula is pretty good, wasn’t as sheer as I thought it might be. I used 2 coats and one coat of SH Insta Dri. this picture is a bit shaded but you can still see the pinky shimmer.
Here you can see the pink shimmer glow!
This is 2 careful coats of Gem. The formula was very good a little thick but not soo much that it’s pulling all the glitters away with it. I say careful because when it comes to multi sized glitter I can be a bit particular about where things go. I bought this because surprisingly with the almost half my collection being glitters- I didn’t have a multi color glitter polish. Before buying this I had Jordana’s Glitters Gemstones, Wet’n wild Party of Five Glitters and this one in my hand. I choose this because WW just didn’t have enough color- or many primary colors for that matter. Jordana’s Gemstones was very similar to Milani’s Gem but it seemed a little more faded, and if I remember correctly- it’s didn’t have multi-sized glitter.
Another 2 careful coats.
Personally I love purples and blues but I still can’t get over Zeus. Since that was the last one of my swatching that day I kept it on for as long as it would last me. Which if you know me, that wasn’t very long.
So what are your thoughts on Zeus?
