butter LONDON Union Jack Black

The butter LONDON Union Jack Black  nail lacquer was seen on the models’ nails at Yigal Azrouël’s fall 2011 show.“Fresh from the catwalks, I’ve created these looks to be modern, hip and wearable…and as always, with a bit of rock & roll.” is what Katie Jane Hughes, the Global Colour Ambassador says about the Collection.
It’s a winner with how glossy the Union Jack Black is. The photos are  two coat of the butter LONDON Union Jack Black and without a top coat. It will definitely add an edge to my clothing, not that I’m that fashionable, but that’s another reason that I love it. If it can help me, it will be a great addition to anyone’s Collection!

Here’s the first Milani Nail Lacquer: Mint Candy

Milani Nail Lacquer


I used two coats of this creme polish, and did not add a top coat. I’m just amazed at how shiny and beautiful Milani Nail Lacquers are without any top coat added.

I then added two coats of the Milani Jewel FX Nail Lacquer in Teal:

Milani formulated this chunky glitter to, “give the impression of the finest jewels adorning your nails. Multi-colored glitter sparkles like gems.”

Thoughts About the Milani Nail Lacquers:

I love the large and small glitters, and while I could have done my nails with one coat, I love glitter, so I added a second coat. How many coats you choose will obviously depending on the level of sparkling you want. Once again, I have no top coat on! The only con I could find is that some may not like the feel of the large glitter on their nails. Of course, that problem can be easily solved by adding a top coat. Just for record, I like to see what polish looks like for those who either don’t want to, or don’t have time to add a top coat. 

Here are the two Milani Nail Lacquers, with two coats of polish on each nail, no top coat: Mint Candy and Teal.
