Milani Bijou Bronze


     Happy Friday everyone! I'm sure you're anxious to get your weekend started so Ive got another quick post for you today.  My NOTD post is Milani Bijou Bronze. A warm coppery bronze color with micro shimmer.

     I don't know what it is with this shade of polish that draws me to it but, ever since I got my first pedicure with OPI's Down to my last Penny I have been hooked! Bijou Bronze was one of those polishes that I saw a swatch of and knew I just had to have. Unfortunately it's not available everywhere Milani is sold. After months of searching I finally found one at a CVS sitting all by itself on a shelf in the make-up section. I did a little happy dance an quickly put it into my cart.

     For this manicure I used 2 coats of Bijou Bronze and added some simple square nail studs for extra bling. I then added 2 generous layers of top coat to make sure the studs wouldn't fall off. This was my first time using the studs and I wasn't sure how well they would hold up. Turns out not so well with my line of work. The next day it seemed like every time I looked down at my nails a stud would be missing! Ive learned a thing or two since then so I wont be having that problem anytime soon.

     The nail studs I ordered from Dollar Nail Art and are available in a variety of shapes and colors. Shipping was pretty fast and everything came wrapped up nice and safe. The only down side to ordering from them is you need a minimum of $35 per order. Which is sometimes hard to get to since everything is so cheap.

     So what do you think of this combination? I really liked the final result and may just wear this again sometime. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!

    1. I think I might be up to about 8 polishes in this color family now and I always pick them up when Im at the store. I have to tell myself to put it back and try something different. It doesn't always work though...hehehe What would you say if your favorite one in your collection?

    1. You know I tried the studs on a lark. I had just gotten them in the mail and while I was painting my nails figured I should give them a try. Im so glad that I did because I LOVE how this turned out.

    1. Thanks Autumn =) Part of me wants to try it with silver studs and the other part says why mess with a good thing.
