Milani Nail Polish in Bijou Bronze REVIEW

edited bronze polish

I had to pick up a rx at CVS yesterday and I did a quick once over of the polishes on my way to the pharmacy (on the complete opposite side of store) I had bought a Milani polish previous and was very unhappy with it. I have since learned I don't think it had anything to do with Milani but with neon polish in general. It is hard to get even coverage and it is almost always matte. A look I just don't dig. But when I saw this bronze color I thought I would give them another shot. I am totally in love with the Minx metallic nail looks that are so hot with celebrities rights now. But lets be honest I can't afford a $50 manicure! I don't know if I could afford it if I would even do it. (Who are we kidding I probably would just so I could have mad mirror nails)

My instant reaction was that it reminded me of a fresh penny or a natural redhead's hair. I was so tempted to ask my coworker if I could take a picture of my nails with my hair but I figured there was a line and that would cross it. (Although I don't think I shock her that much anymore. She gets 35 hours of my odd questions every week... Can I take Tylenol and Zytrec at the same time? Do I need to take a coat to lunch? What should I have for lunch? Do you have any candy?) I applied two coats and a coat of Seche Vite top coat. This picture was taken the second day. I am VERY hard on my nails too. This Milani polish in Bijou Bronze can be found at CVS and for $4.99 I think it is a great alternative to the $50 smancy Minx manicure.

PS Minx if by some fluke you see this... I can be reached at byhillary AT gmail DOT com
hey it's my blog I can do that. :)

This is what happens when you live with Waffle and try to take pictures.

I haven't seen those polishes before. I'll have to look for them. Especially this one.
