NOTD: TonyMoly Milkyway (GS08)

This has been sitting in my drafts for ages (as you can tell from the non-nubbin middle nail, sob) so I thought I'd show it to you today. I found this polish on eBay one night and really wanted it after I saw the swatches over on The Polish Well. I'm waiting for 'Shooting Star' (GS09) to arrive in the post, but in the meantime I have swatches of 'Milky Way' for you.

The first time I used 'Milky Way', I didn't use a coloured base coat and I found it really tedious building up the colour. This time, I used a base coat of Barry M 'Blue Moon' and it made it much easier to work with. 'Milky Way' is a rumoured dupe for Deborah Lippmann 'Glitter in the Air' and Revlon 'Whimsical' but I don't have either of those polishes to compare. On to the swatches!

One coat of Barry M 'Blue Moon' with 2 coats of Milky Way.

I was a little woried that it as going to give me corpse hands, but it's warmer than it looks. As with all polishes of this type, I did have to move the larger glitters around a bit on the nail. Apart from that, the polish applied well and built up into a beautiful colour over one coat of the Barry M (which is the exact same colour as the base of this one). I got mine from this seller on eBay, and it arrived in good time and was packed well. I paid just under 6 euro including International postage.

Check back in with me later on if you're following the 15-Day Nail Challenge!

  5. Makeup Monster if you develop an addiction to Tony Moly don't blame me, the stuff is the definition of cute! Jenna I really didn't think it would suit me but I really liked it on! It didn't make me look too corpse-y either :)
