First things first, I've gotta say... this color just doesn't want to photograph accurately! What looks like a light blue with lavender ambitions in my photos, is actually a gorgeous, glowing periwinkle blue in real life.
Recently, Milani Cosmetics decided to bring all their different polish lines under one umbrella and Milani Color Statement was the result! So far, they've put out their core 36 colors and a Quick Dry Clear Coat which I picked up, but didn't use for whatever reason. I also picked up Ink Spot and Enchanting, but I'm holding off on trying those until I'm in more of an Autumn mood!
Application was great! I probably could've gotten away with just 2 coats, but I thought I saw some patchiness on one of my nails, so everyone got a 3rd coat. It was late, and I was in a bit of a hurry to paint my nails after an attempt at nail art went very wrong! I was trying to do a striped manicure while binge-watching Doctor Who, and in the end, the Doctor won and my nail art was scrapped!
Anyway... I like this color a lot, but I did think that the shimmer would've shown up on my nails a little better than it did. Thankfully, I bought it for the color and not for the finish! I love that even though Peri-Wink is a pastel, it's a bright pastel, so it still works for summer. I'm not ready to go vampy quite yet. Soon, though!
Have you tried any of the new Milani shades?
