Milani Rockstar Heavy Glitter Collection: Gems

Milani Gems (1 coat) over Revlon Cloud (2 coats)

I know, I feel like I haven't been posting enough lately, but I have just been so busy and depressed  lately. I hope you can understand. :-( 

On the bright side I finally found the Milani Gems polish at CVS! I found a lone bottle sitting isles away from the display so I was quite lucky to get it. It is extremely similar to Deborah Lippmann's Happy Birthday glitter polish, but the most appreciable difference is that Gems does not contain pink glitter and Happy Birthday does. Some people on the Nail Board from Makeup Alley mentioned that the bottles bought through the Cherry Culture store now have pink glitter in them. Hooray, we almost have a dupe! The only other difference is that the smaller glitter is only hexagonal in Gems and Happy Birthday has square glitter. I would definitely just pick up the Milani polish because the Lippmann polish will run  you ~$18 online. Yikes! I was also really impressed with how dense the glitter is because what is shown is 1 coat. Overall, I love this glitter!

Just one coat? Extraordinary! I saw this one and didn't get it. What was I thinking? This is very pretty.
