hi-res holo

oh man, yesterday was a great day. it was a rare saturday where i didn't have to work, and i took full advantage of it. i slept in, ate muddy bears in bed (gummy bears covered in chocolate. . . . amazing), watched chick flicks, started up some cross stitch, all while i stayed in my pjs all day. it was glorious. as is this purple holo i wore all weekend-

2 coats milani hi-res




i'm sure you know by now that i love these milani holos. i have a few linear holos (3, to be exact), but honestly, i prefer these. the larger scattered holo pieces look more flashy and glittery to me. and i really like how the rainbow in these holos is pastel, instead of more primary colors like the new color clubs and the urban outfitters ones appear to be. 


fun story: i bought this polish and the pink one for my kid sister one year (she was probably 10 at the time) for her birthday. i asked her later if she tried them, and she said, "yeah! i thought they were just normal nail polishes, but then when i put them on, it was like holy rainbows!" lol, that made me laugh. my other sister who's 18 says she doesn't even like holo. . . . what?? i'm pretty sure that's impossible.

you can get hi-res (or the silver, gold, blue, green, and pink versions) at cvs for $5.49. they may sell these at other places, but i've only ever seen holos at cvs. as far as i know, these are the only true holos you can find in american drugstores. let's hope milani never discontinues these!

  1. I was SO excited the other day because I scored the entire Milani 3D Holographic collection at CVS--on clearance for $ 1.37 a piece!! I thought of you, since I was introduced to them through your blog :)

    1. Oh sweet! Yeah, I saw some the other day on clearance, and then instantly panicked that they're discontinuing them! Let's hope that's not the case. . . . But if so, I'm stocking up!
