Let's Talk Polish

Milani Glitter polishes to be precise...


It's been awhile since a Let's Talk Polish post I know. Lemme tell yuh, these are pretty hard to compile; but it's definitely overdue.

If you follow us on Facebook and Instagram you know that Paradise Beauty Supply are selling out some of their older stock. These Milani glitter polishes were $2 but then they raised them to $5. Still that's half of what you'd pay in #1 Beauty Supply etc.

The reason is that Milani has repackaged their nail polishes so it's literally a case of 'out with the old in the new'...if only more stores in Barbados would shed their dated stock in this fashion.

But I digress, the news of this sale table is definitely a hit amongst us Mavenz and I most certainly got a few of these polishes to try for myself. I also got a few, along with other Milani items, to use as gifts-with-purchase for our Marketplace shoppers ;)

I don't know why I didn't try the Milani polishes before - apart from the obvious reason that I already have too many polishes - but at that price, I couldn't resist.

Jewel FX 'Lavender' and 'Teal' 
3D Holographic 'Cyberspace'

Within the glitter range there are some differences: the holographic ones and some others are densely packed with micro shimmer so they can be worn alone. The Jewel FX range (some aren't labelled as that but look very similar in the bottle) are made up of large and mini hexagons and look better as toppers.

I haven't worn all the ones I got yet,

'Fuchsia' and 3D Holographic 'Hi-Res'
3D Holographic 'HD' and 'Diamond Dazzle'

but so far wear time seems to be the average three days without chipping. Again, I don't baby my hands so you could have better results if you do. At $5 I think they're great for accent nail polish options. Paired with a good top coat the shine is incredible. Create statement manicures for cheap!

Have you tried any of these Milani polishes? They're still a few left in Paradise Beauty Supply if you wanna check them out. I've seen the new bottles in iMart Bridge Street for $10.95. Do you think that's a fair price? Lets discuss it in the comments.

Dear Shane Dawson, SYM!

...wid a straw.
Imagine: pretending to care about a community, claiming to share similar interest, designing a cash grab to fleece said community, make millions off products and merchandise (did I mention that this charlatan never even posted one single video using his palette?)...then turning around and blasting the same community for loving negativity and drama. After using drama to create hype for his mediocre "docu-series" and gaudy products. Boy go and drink bleach yuh *redacted* parasite. The same energy you have for lambasting an entire sub-set of YouTube - that made you richer - keep fuh nasty minded, gutter snipe friends. I hope you truly are "done with the drama and tea". You should be done with YouTube period! Yuh *redacted* fraud! I particularly hope that everyone can now see through your "I'm so sensitive" charade and never put another cent of their hard earned money in your condescending, manipulative pockets. You are a disgrace.  
And jus…
