I used Iconic Red for my base, and then put some wavys over it. I then painted a coat of Charcoal Charm over the nail... waiting a few seconds before carefully peeling the wavys off and VOILA! Perfect red waves peeking out from under the deep grey! I topped my other two Iconic Red-based nails with Pearl-Plexed Sheer to add a shine!
Here's Iconic Red! Beautiful and shiny, this polish was good to go in two coats. I think it just looks amazing - and Milani has really knocked it out of the park with the reds in this collection.
Charcoal Charm is not a color I would normally have. It's just not one of my favorites. The formula is good, tho, and it covers pretty well in one coat.
Pearl-Plexed Sheer is everything it sounds like. You can see exactly what it does in the first photo, how much it changes Iconic Red. It's just for adding that little extra pop of shimmery goodness to any mani :)
Soooooooooooo, what do you think? These are part of the core line of Milani makeup, so you can get them anytime (or from the website) - but if you see some you like, maybe you should pick them up? :) I have finally managed to see them in EVERY CVS store I've walked into.... so they should be near you now!
