Milani - Dot Com

Royal Milk Tea said she'd really love to see Milani Dot Com. It's been in my collection for quite a while and I'm a little embarrassed it took me so long to finally try it on. And I'm glad I did.

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!


  1. This colour looks great on you! And how can you say your blog and photos used to look like crap? Your blog has been awesome from the beginning and it gets better with time :)

  2. oh wow I am really in owe with this polish!!!

  3. I don't think Nikon is bad, you just aren't used to it. IE, during my trip to Budapest I have made over 400 pictures, but the ones pictures by others using my own camera(unfortunately, with me in them) look like crap. If you don't like experimenting, you can always sell that camera to me :)

    Milani looks great, where do you get them?

  4. Another voice for your blog and photos never looked crappy! It's the other way 'round: your photos are outstanding compared to loooooots of other blogs.

    And this polish is very beautiful. *sighs* I would absolutely excuse him/it (?) the three-"coatiness". (Yes, I tend to invent words as well.)

    Hey, don't call us nickname-to-DSLR-givers disturbed! We just have a close relationship to our great tools. As long as we don't take them to bed or cuddle with them, I think everything's alright. ;)

  5. This is such a beautiful shade - I love it! Thank you for sharing. xx

  6. I just wanna say OMG and WOW!!! Amazing :D

  7. This looks prettier on you than it did on me. I wonder if I have a different formula because the gold shimmer looks more like weird flakies in mine.

  8. This is so pretty. Love the gold shimmer in it. I thought I had this but I don't. Darn! Your photos are all fine. I can see lots of details and shimmer in the polishes.

  9. Oooh! I have this one and I love it a lot, after a cold start... ;)

  10. You are crazycakes, your blog has been awesome since day one and it continues. I love it. I love this polish on you. :)

  11. Niki :) That's so cheesy, in a good way! Love the polish on you, personally I'm in an anti-purple phase. Today.

  12. Is this polish still available? I don't recall seeing it. Either way it's a great polish!

  13. Wow, seriously gorgeous color! I'm such a sucker for purples like this :)

  14. Živjo! Že nekaj časa imam tvoj blog med linki, šele danes sem ga pregledala bolj podrobno in ugotovila, da si v resnici Slovenka! mislim, da sem do njega prišla z Zarne ;)
    Vesela, da ima nekdo še več lahkov kot jaz!!
    Vprašanje - kako ti uspe narediti lak tako lepo zaokrožen pri korenini? Uporabljaš kakšen pripomoček ali imaš le tako mirno roko?
    Hvala, LP

  15. @Nail Stories: Thank you so much! :*

    @Biberlee: I know what you mean. I haven't been playing with my Nikon that much... I got this Milani as a gift.

    @mad.Âme: Thank you! :)

    @Megan Harmeyer: I don't know if there are different versions of this one. Other people used 2 coats, I had to use three... Don't know about the flakies either.

    @April: I have no idea. I got this polish as a gift, otherwise I'd never get my hands on it anyway. =)

    @Ana: Pozdravljena! He he, a rabiš malo tolažbe - obstajajo ljudje, ki imajo več lakov, zato si lahko privoščiš še kakšnega. ;) Jaz se tudi tako tolažim. Kar se tiče lakiranja: vaja, vaja, vaja. Kadar se mi ''kolca'' pa popravim s pomočjo v aceton namočenega ploščatega čopiča.
