NOTD - Milani Totally Cool

9.22.2012

There is a rumor this "totally cool" (yes, pun intended) color might be discontinued.
That would be a shame cause it is really a pretty one. Maybe I should get a backup.
Anyway I have this color (*smug*) and it will last me for a while since I only visit it once a year or so.
(You can say I am hoarding. ;p)


Milani Totally Cool



Milani Totally Cool  is a sheer cobalt blue with tons of orchid glitters. 
It changes color under different lighting but mostly it looks purple with these two elements put together.
You can create a whole other look that is deeper and richer if you top Totally Cool over any black cream polish, and this way you can ease a bit of the pain of removing glitter polish, too. ;)


under warmer lighting


I almost forgot about Totally Cool  and I haven't worn this for a long time.
There was a reason I dug this out and did my weekend mani with it. :)

Yup, I recently acquired NARS Marie Galante  duo much enabled by my friend Pauline (She is some enabler by the way, since she made me buy summer colors when I should be shopping for the fall items! ;p)
The way these two eyeshadow shades look just made me think of this Milani polish!

So there you go.
Now you know what I am going to show you next week!


Hope everyone is enjoying a beautiful weekend. :)

  1. Ahhh pretty!!! This is definitely a color I'd wear as well!

    Marie Galante seems cool, but I heard it's better for layering. Can't wait to hear what you think!

  8. They totally go together! I actually quite like that Milani polish - very shimmery, but also it looks like it has a lot of depth. And the color is quite unique, I feel - most purples are reddish and warm, like red grapes!

  9. He Lena, what a great match of eyeshadow + nail polish. I hadn't seen Totally Cool before, but it's a stunning color on you!

  10. What a beautiful shimmer! It has great depth to it. I've never tried glitter polish over black, but I shall one day soon! LOL @ shopping for summer clothes when you should be shopping for fall...I am the same way, every year! :P

  11. Aww the eyeshadow colours are amazing ! I don't know how to wear colourful eyeshadows though as I have monolids and they thend to smudge badly :( I really like the nail polish colour ! I hate that good things are to be discontinued ! But it often happens lol

  12. o my god love the sparkles in it..love it!

    ReplyDelete
  13. yes! i really love the cobalt blue sheer base. it is a bit hard to apply since it's so sheer but nothing you can't work with.
    reddish purples look ugly on me (or is it that they make my hands look ugly..) so i have to be careful with purples although i love them sooo much! :)

  14. it's hard to remove thanks to those, but they are pain-worthy glitters. ;p

  15. i use eyeshadow primer like too faced shadow insurance. i hear urban decay one is even better for oily lids as well.
    these colors are very sheer and best to be used as nuance colors. they are quite hard in texture so i wouldn't think they would have bad smudging problemd. hths! :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. yeah. i think it is also because the base is very sheer and buildable. ;)
    i love shopping summer clearance in fall actaully. lolz
    this duo was not on sale (hmmph) and my friend got me so interested in this particular duo and i chose this instead of the NARS fall collection. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  17. thank you, Dovey!
    i got more interested in NARS makeup, so your great reviews and swatches are very helpful to me. ;)

  18. i know, right??!
    i am hoping it is just a rumor. lolz
    i wore the eyeshadow duo yesterday and i really like them. they are on the sheer side but they both flash blue duochrome shimmer. so pretty! :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. thank you! i will try. ;)
    the polish is looking a bit old now so i might have to redo the color. lol

    ReplyDelete
  20. thank you!
    it would be nice addition to your purple collection. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  21. you're so right!
    with two coats, the color looks quite rich and fall appropriate. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  22. i would agree with you!
    (but then i just thought about Zoya Kotori that would also reminds one of galaxy. i must show this to you! ;p)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Marie Galante is definitely on the sheer side and because of that, i don't think it was received well. ;) i knew what they were before my purchase thanks to all the blog reviews & swatches.
    i will do a look post soon!

    i was just at a local cvs but they didn't have this color.. T.T

    ReplyDelete
  32. I looked at my CVS and they don't carry this color anymore. I guess it was a LE. :/

    ReplyDelete
  33. ah..then i am afraid the rumor is true! it used to be in their core collection.
    i will get two for both of us if i am lucky to spot the color! :)
