Disclosure: Boom Boom Pow was a PR sample
Once again, sorry, my cuticles are still horrible. Blame the cold and the snow.
This is two coats of Nails Inc's classically clean, bright red Milan, topped off with a single coat of Lippmann Collection Boom Boom Pow. Firstly, I absolutely love Milan - it's such a classic red, which applies and wears really well: this photo was taken a staggering five days after application, and the amount of tipwear is minimal. Milan was one of the Diet Coke freebies released a few months ago - I reckon it's pretty close to the regular range's St James shade though, should you be crazy enough to want to pay full price for it (if not, just wait a few months and another freebie collaboration is sure to turn up).
The Lippmann Boom Boom Pow is an unsurprisingly fabulous glitter. You get three sizes of gold glitter that's not too warm - I often have trouble with gold against my cool skin, but this doesn't look weird, just gorgeously pretty and sparkly. It's a very universal gold which should work well with most skin tones. A single coat gives a dusting of sparkle, and should you be so inclined, you'll find that it builds up well to give an opaque, very bling finish. It is, however, a pain to remove - no surprises there.
