Milani Breezy

Milani Breezy is a nail polish that I've had in my untried bucket for quite a while. I got it in a giveaway (I can't remember whose, sorry) and sort of forgot about it - or, when I saw it in my untrieds, there was always something I wanted to try more. I'm determined to cut down my untried polishes significantly before I move to college, though, so I finally went for it yesterday evening.

First of all, you should know that Breezy is very sheer and dries slowly. I used five coats with top coat, letting each coat dry most of the way before adding the next (which took forever), then went to bed (because it was so darn late by the time I got done waiting for the coats to dry). I was very careful with where I put my hands when I laid down, but when I woke up in the morning, terrible sheet prints were on every nail. In some cases, the polish had even been pushed to one side of the nail. Because I didn't have time to redo a full manicure, I buffed the bumpiness down, then added another coat of Breezy and top coat. Since it's a sheer shimmer, though, you can still see where some of the sheet prints were. Oh, and guess what? Six coats, and still not completely opaque.

It's a pretty color on the nail, and I like it better than I thought I would in the bottle. However, this one is just too much trouble for me. Maybe if I had all day to paint my nails it would be worth it, but I don't, and it's not. There are plenty of blue shimmers out there that aren't such a pain, so I'd recommend spending your money on one of those. That said, if you are interested in owning a bottle of Breezy, I've listed it for swapping on MakeupAlley - my username's neverunpolished.

I'm leaving on Thursday for Greece thanks to Make-a-Wish, and I won't be back home until next Saturday or Sunday (probably Sunday). I'll be scheduling posts in the meantime, and I might even post a picture or two of Greece from my phone if I get a chance. However, I won't probably have posts scheduled for every day - I do still have to pack, after all!
