Milani 3D Hi-Res

For some reason, I feel like my camera doesn't do a good job of photographing nail polish accurately. Since I usually paint my nails at night time, I can't take an outdoors pic right away, and I usually just snap a pic on my cell phone and post my manicure on here, with the cell phone picture.
Well, today I pulled out my camera, took nice bottle shots of my mani, and the color just didn't seem right.
I quickly snapped a photo on my cell phone, and while the quality isn't nearly as good as my camera, the color just seems more accurate.
So, today I have Milani Hi- Res from the 3D Holographic Collection.
I ordered this from Milani's Cyber Monday sale- actually, my boyfriend paid for them, and held on to them as a Christmas present for me. 
I also got the Bundle Monster stamping plates for Christmas, so I have been busy stamping, and haven't actually worn any of the Milani holo polishes that I got. I haven't seen these in stores near me, but a friend in Virginia Beach was able to find them at her CVS.

Milani Hi-Res is a lavender base with linear holographic glitter.

It makes me think of Lisa Frank binders and glittery pencils, from when I was a kid.
It also makes me think of what unicorn manes would look like!

The formula on this was really thin, but it was easy to work with, and dried very quickly.
This is two coats- you can still see some VNL(visible nail line) when the light shows through, but it's pretty opaque enough to not need a third coat.

I used Orly Bonder Base Coat and INM Out The Door Topcoat. 
(Dare I say that's my Holy Grail combo?)


  1. Love it !

  2. Milani has holos now?!!! I haven't seen these anywhere! Awesome though, and good boyfriend :)


Pretty and perfect due to your steady hand.
Apply that lipgloss like it's your job.
