Lime Crime: Milky Ways

It's been a long time coming but here is the final swatch from Lime Crime's Les Desserts d'Antoinette collection!

Milky Ways is one of those perfectly named shades - this isn't a stark white but rather a lovely milky vanilla.  I look at it and think of vanilla shakes and ice cream.  Damn shame it wasn't vanilla scented too!  This polish is probably the diva of the collection in terms of application because it was still quite patchy and balding in places after two coats.  I've cheated here and only covered the bald areas with a third coat of polish but I would definitely recommend three full coats for evenly opaque coverage.  I had previously read in other posts this shade is more prone to chipping so I put it to the test by reinforcing it with a good base coat and top coat and it did last the working week (Monday to Friday) for me with only a few chips by week's end.

Until next time.

    I was a bit surprised by the pink/peach hue in it, when I saw it in person...

  3. Really pretty colour! I'm really in a pastel mood right now, which is a bit strange with autumn creeping around the corner :)

    1. Not strange at all - the autumn fashion palette is all about pastels and neon pastels at the moment!
