137. Orly Goth
95. OPI Metallic 4 Life (Retesting)
107. LA Splash Midnight (Retesting)
138. Milani Black Magic

Orly Goth, OPI Metallic 4 Life, LA Splash Midnight.

I used Milani Black Magic as the base coat on the testing wheel.

Orly’s Goth didn’t need a base coat – it is a full-on black polish with various small-sized silver glittery bits. I mentioned in a previous post that I would need to do a side-by-side comparison of Metallic 4 Life and Midnight, and you can really see a difference here. Metallic 4 Life is really big hex glitters, what looks like medium round pieces and then little ones to fill it in. They are true silver. The LA Splash Midnight is a much more densely packed smaller pieces of silver glitter, but they have a multi-color flash that is really fun.

Thoughts: I love a dark polish and adding glitter is just the sparkly cherry on top. The Milani Black Magic is going into the pile of basic black polishes, which will always get used.
Verdict: Everyone stays. I was hoping to cull one of the sparkly ones but I like them too much.

Polish Project #27

105. Funky Fingers Reject (Not online, got it at Five Below.) (Also, the name is not Reject, I just rejected it and tossed it and don’t know the name.)
106. Milani Silver Dazzle
107. LA Splash Midnight (Another one I can’t find online, I don’t remember where I purchased this one.)
108. OPI Suzi Skis in the Pyranees Suede

This is a shame, because you can see how pretty it is on the nail back there, and even in the bottle.

But the formula is a hot mess, so much so that thinner isn’t going to cut it.

Thoughts: Pretty but a pain.
Verdict: Already went in the trash.

Milani Silver Dazzle, LA Splash Midnight, OPI Suzi Skis in the Pyranees Suede.

First up, a coat (just the one) of Suzi Skis in the Pyranees Suede, then alternating topcoat for shine. The index and ring fingers have Poshe topcoat.

Then added LA Splash Midnight over the middle finger, and Milani Silver Dazzle over the ring finger.

Then thought that Midnight might be a dupe for OPI’s Metallic 4 Life from the Nicki Minaj collection. I will have to do a direct side-by-side but they appear to be quite similar.

Thoughts: I think that Suzi Skis in the Pyranees Suede is my favorite gray polish, but I prefer it with the topcoat. The glitters I tried here are also great. I will re-test Midnight and Metallic 4 Life in a future post.
Verdict: Everyone gets to stay!
