Milani Nail Art Lacquer in Purple Outline


You know... I've had this swatch sitting in my 'to be posted' folder for well over a year and I'm not sure why I've never posted it. It's a freakin' amazing color, even though it's crazy to apply.

Milani Nail Art Lacquer in Purple Outline. The reason this is so crazy to apply is... it's a striper polish. It has a 'precision brush', which is code for 'impossibly skinny and floppy'. It's intended for nail art- outlines, swooshes, french tips, that sort of thing- not necessarily to be worn as a regular polish. They really should make this in a normal bottle with a normal brush cause it's super gorgeous. It's a bright purple creme with blue, purple and pink glitter. Sorta like a not as bright, soft demure version of China Glaze Flying Dragon (which is a must-have color, if you ask me). Painting my entire nail with that skinny striper brush is a bit of an ordeal, but the end result is worth it. Such a great color. Yeah, it's good for nail art, too... But why would I want to limit myself to a few lines of this when I can have it on my entire nail?

  4. I'm tempted to buy two bottles of this and pour them in a regular sized bottle. I know people have done it with this color before just because it is so gorgeous.

  8. You have more patience than I do. I would have just stuck to the stripes or tried to find a regular sized brush I could use. It definitely was worth it. The color is gorgeous!

  9. that color is definitely worthy of the whole nail, not just a design element

  11. I can tell I'm under the weather with dental yuck, because I read that as "it's a stripper polish." And then sat here pondering: what makes a polish right for a stripper? Does it peel off?

    It is, however, a lovely color. For strippers and non-strippers alike! ;)

  13. China Glaze Flying Dragon might be close. I'm wearing it right now, and it dries matte, which is weird, but a topcoat makes it look like your pic. Neon purple with pink and blue glitter.

  14. That colour is really beautiful. If you love wearing it as a regular polish, couldn't you decant it into a regular polish bottle? That way you would have it for manicures and can use it with a striper for art. :D

  15. OMG, props to you for having the patience to use a precision brush! Love the color though =)

  16. This color is crazy gorgeous! I'm not sure if I'd have the patience to do this, but with this as the end result, maybe I would.

  18. Dude I have this! Poured it straight into a franken bottle. Pow! done! Gorgeous!

  19. Haha, I have this one but I haven't used it yet as I a) can't imagine using that scrawny brush to paint my nails and b) don't want to waste polish by decanting when I only own one bottle of it! It's so darn gorgeous in the bottle though... *sigh*

  20. It's a beauty of a color. Yoou have the patience of a saint to paint your nail with that tiny brush. It does need to be a regular sized polish.

  21. This looks great. They should definitely sell it with a regular nail-polish brush!
