Milani Cyberspace over Lime Crime Once in a Blue Mousse


Rather a dud manicure for Sunday.  

I recently picked up a few more of the Milani 3D holographic polishes at a dollar store.  From my previous uses, I know that they are not the most opaque of holo polishes so I thought they might really pop over a bright pastel.  So I layered a coat or two of Milani Cyberspace over Lime Crime Once in a Blue Mousse.

Oy.

Streaky and uneven, the layering effect just didn't take.  Instead of melding with the polish to create a cohesive, sparkly look like my Bondi and Savina combo or my Super Black Lacquers and Barry M. mani, this just looks messy and blotchy.


Meh.  Don't you just hate it when something that in theory should be fantastic just bombs miserably?

  2. You see messy & blotchy - I see super gorgeousness! Of course, I'm sure to the naked eye it may appear as you've said :)

  3. I think it's gorgeous! I have Cyberspace, but I actually like it layered over a pastel...a completely different look from one polish!

  4. I thought it was really change it up from just jelly-ish, but sadly, I'm not won over here.

  6. Aww, I think it looks really pretty! Of course, I love anything sparkly, but I think these two go well together.
