Nail Polish of the Day: Milani Totally Cool

Milani Totally Cool Nail Polish

Happy hump day everyone.  You know what Wednesdays are at Steph's closet?  Nail polish giveaways, yah!  On top of my Wednesday giveaway, I'll be giving today's nail polish of the day to one of my Twitter followers.

I'm bringing you a Totally Cool ($3.49) shade from Milani cosmetics.   And, totally cool is such an understatement for this exceptionally drop dead gorgeous shade.  Smokin Hot or Shimmer Ho would be more appriporate in this case.

How freakin awesome would a nail polish called Shimmer Ho be?

Wow, I haven't been this excited about a drug store color in years.  Seriously, years I tell you!  Described as a blue purple jelly drenched with gold and pink micro shimmer that's to die for.

The good news, totally cool will be a permanent color in Milani's nail polish line.  If your store is anything like my CVS, their always out of Milani and I expect this color to be a hot commodity.

Inside under lighting, no flash.  For best results, you'll need three coats to achieve bottle color. Plus, three coats bring out the gorgeous-ness of the shimmer.

I'll be posting the nail polish winners later this afternoon.  Have a great day!

Thanks Vanilla333! Yes, it's definitely called Totally Cool! Since it's a brand new color, it may not be available on the website yet. Actually, I just took a peek at the website and they don't have a lot of colors that are available in stores. You may have better luck checking out your local stores that carries Milani nail polish :) Good luck!

Your swatch just made me gasp! It is so gorgeous...I can hardly stand it. I haven't seen this brand anywhere where I live, so I hope I can find it somewhere online.

Hi Atomica, Hopefully it will surface online soon since it's a permanent color. You DEF need this, it's amazing! :)

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

I missed out on speed, looks like a gorgeous high-end purple. btw, are you still thinking of selling studio m nail polishes on your website? thanks

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
