Milani, Dot Com, 3 coats
I did a little Googling before applying Dot Com, just to see what to expect. I thought it will need around 4 coats to get opaque - you know the feeling a certain shades gives you (in my mind nudes are sheer, reds are jelly-ish etc.) and I was sure this one is a four coater. Maybe that's why it took an eternity for me to do a manicure with it. I was pleasantly surprised when most of the ladies posted photos of Milani Dot Com, saying they used 2 coats. Well, mine wasn't that good. It needed 3 coats to get the opacity I was comfortable with. The formula of this polish is really thin and I'm surprised it covers the nails the way it does. You know how much I dislike polishes that need too many coats. Two coats are my standard, three are already too much and four ... that polish is just not worth buying (unless it's used for layering). Dot Com is different though. It does take 3 layers for full opacity, but it will still have a special place in my collection. At least until they make a more opaque dupe of it. =)
Dot com is unique and very pretty. It's dark, mysterious, smoky and shiny at the same time. I can't resist a good purple with golden highlights. Sally Hansen's Arabian Night anyone? Man, my blog and photos used to look like crap! :D
A bad Nikon photo. Niki wants to be a part of it. Yes, I have a nickname for my DSLR camera. Just how disturbed am I, right? Hee hee.
Thanks for looking and commenting!
