|Milani Nail Treatment Smoothe Base Coat and Glosse Top Coat along with Ulta 's Eye Popping Poppy|
I decided to finally try these products to see if they were worth the money. I chose my color of nail polish, Ulta Eye Popping Poppy. I made sure my hands were clean to ensure that there was no lotion or oils on my actual nail beds. I was in a rush when I painted my nails so these pictures are not the best example of my nail polishing abilities...LOL.
Upon applying the base coat, I noticed that as it dried it left a matte whitish finish. The base coat dried quickly and the applicator brush worked well in apply the coat evenly.
Once I applied the base coat to all my nails, I applied one coat of the Ulta Eye Popping Poppy. Something I noticed immediately is that it felt like the base coat was grabbing the colored polish. It was a very strange feeling but at the same time it made me feel like it was going to help the colored polish to last longer. I applied a second coat and waited a few minutes before applying the top coat. The top coat went on smoothly and seemed to dry quickly and super duper shiny.
|Freshly polished (not yet cleaned up)|
|Day 2- Still shiny, no chipping or smudging.|
I am happy so far with the way this base and top coat have preformed up to this point. I am very hard on my nails so typically by now I would have chipping. I hope that this review is useful to someone. If you happen to have or get these products please give me your feedback.
* Darker nail polishes take longer to dry. Now that we are heading into fall and winter I know we will start using darker colors so keep that in mind when you allot time to do your nails.
* Do NOT shake your nail polishes instead roll them in your hand to mix the color to prevent bubbles.
