Milani Rad Purple

The moment I saw Milani's Rad Purple on Short 'n Chic, I knew I HAD to have it. A really pretty purple that's also a jelly, my most favorite nail polish finish ever! Count me in! When I placed my order with, which also included Whimsical, I picked Rad Purple up as well.

I absolutely adore this. This was three coats. It has some neon qualities to it, though I wouldn't call it a true neon, so it dries to a satin finish. But once you pop some top coat on, it's full of shiny, squishy goodness!

The nail of my middle finger peeled pretty far down, unfortunately, so I chopped the rest of 'em. They were getting to such a nice length, too! I guess they will grow back in no time, but it's still a bummer. I'd love to see Rad Purple on longer nails.

Revlon Whimsical

I'm slacking again. Ugh. I'm just so stressed with waiting on grad school news, and working on submitting some new pieces to a gallery. Nonetheless, I have Whimsical by Revlon to show you today.

Whimsical is the highly sought after dupe of Deborah Lippmann's Glitter in the Air. I know people are selling this for more than it is worth because it's a bit harder to find, but, people, you can still find this on for $5.

It's a pretty sheer polish. This is three coats, and you can see the nail line. I liked that effect, as we all know by now, so I kept it. If you wanted something less sheer, I'd recommend layering it over a light blue. It applied smoothly.

I really love the juxtaposition of the milky, sheer blue and the glitter. It was one of those manicures that had me staring at my nails frequently.

Sinful Colors Verbena

Just a quick post before I run off to work. Here's Verbena by Sinful Colors.

Verbena is a medium purple, dusty creme. The color is so pretty. It applied quite easily - two easy coats, and it was good to go. Overall, a great polish, perfect for welcoming spring.
