Milani Enchanted Garnet & Gilded Rocks Reverse Gradient!

Press Sample

Good afternoon, readers! I have a fall-worthy manicure to share with you today featuring two Milani Color Statement polishes! Milani Enchanted Garnet is part of the Limited Edition Bedazzled Collection and it is a gorgeous fall shimmer. I've added a reverse gradient of Milani Gilded Rocks at the cuticle for some extra sparkle.

A blackened red shimmer.
I'm showing two coats below with no top coat.
It seemed tricky at the first coat, but the second coat evened it out and covered completely to reveal the gorgeous red shimmer.

After applying Enchanted Garnet, I was trying to figure out a way to sneak in some simple nail art without taking away from the gorgeous base. So, I decided that a reverse gradient of Gilded Rocks could add a little something extra without overpowering the look. Don't they look great together?

I wiped most of the Gilded Rocks polish off of the brush and then carefully dabbed it onto the cuticle line, softly dragging it toward the tips. It added some gorgeous sparkle, and even looks good on my ultra-short nails.

And just so you can see in photos what I see out of the lightbox in person, here is a macro showing all of the shimmery goodness of Enchanted Garnet. 

What do you think of this simple, yet classy look? Would you wear it? These Milani Color Statement polishes retail for $3.99 each. Enchanted Garnet is Limited Edition so don't hesitate to grab it if you like it! Both are available at the Milani website below, and should be at CVS and Walgreens soon if you don't see the display in your stores already.

Thanks so much for reading!
