I'm not able to choose from the bunch of pics I made to this mani: eight images is as less as I can. I hope you'll like it, I hope you'll love these polishes as I do, and I hope you'll try this funny and classy at the same time design with scotch tape. I was inspired from 2 blogs: The Posh Polish who catched my attention proposing sparkly tips using a polish I own and I love in this post, and my usual scotch-tape muse Nailside who made it in a lovely marine style on this entry.

● MILANI - ONE COAT GLITTER - 521 RED SPARKLE
This is the last polish I own from this Milani collection and I say again that it's another success. I have no more words for these amazing really-almost-one coat glitters, and pics speak by themselves. Sparkly is not enough for them, and the saturation of the color is so high in this red shade that camera had many difficulties about catch it, as you can see in few photos. As i wrote before, the final surface is rough, so you'll need for a generous ammount of top coat if you are searching for a gloss finish. A pain in the ass to remove, but you could avoid this pain with a long hot bath, probably the polish will go away as a decal after that. Only for this kind of polish this is a gift of God, you'll make it easily if you'll apply a thick coat of base-coat at the beginning of your mani. ;)
● ESSENCE - BLACK AND WHITE LE - 01 BLACK OUT
Love love love this black polish. It's a slightly satin finish, almost matte, and the formula is very good. Perfect as base, since it's very opaque in just one coat, this time I used two coats to work better on the edge. It's getting thick but some drops of thinner will fix everything, but a good shake before polishing any single nail was enough for now. The matte finish was good, but I added a matte top coat more! :P
● ESSENCE - MATT TOP COAT
I'm really impressed from this top coat in a very good way! Just... It will be discontinued within few days... Luckily I have 3 bottles (I bought a one more right this morning) in my stash.
