Milani Silver Dazzle
Hey! 200th post! How about that?
Meet Silver Dazzle, an amazing dense glitter from Milani’s One Coat Glitter collection. It’s a deep charcoal palette, with ultra-dense silver and black glitter. The effect is like, I don’t know, crushed black diamond.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, China Glaze is the gold standard for glitter polish. That said, Milani’s Silver Dazzle is almost comparable to China Glaze quality. If you can’t get your hands on China Glaze, or if you’d like to shave a couple bucks off of the price of a bottle of polish, this might be a good choice.
A word about the finish, though. All on its lonesome it dries with a texture, not exactly sparkly. It’s interesting, but I wanted eye-catching flashes of light. So I top coated it up a notch. Well, three notches. I’d read reviews that said this stuff devours topcoat so I devised a plan of attack.
First I topped it with one coat of Gelous, to create a nice even clear coat layer. I then went over it with Sally Hansen’s Diamond Shine. I’ve mentioned in previous posts that Diamond Shine topped with Seche Vite is the shiniest thing in the universe. So of course I then topped it all with Seche Vite.
It’s a little thicker than ideal, so if you’re sensitive to that you might not like this approach. But I swear it’s worth it. It’s glossy and shiny and sparkly and I can’t stop talking with my hands.
