Nella Milano - Lady Lavender and Periwinkle Pucker - Swatches

Last month I reviewed two polishes from a new brand called Nella Milano. I thought they were great polishes and I was excited to see what else the brand had to offer, so I'm very happy to have two more shades to show you today! The shades I chose were Lady Lavender* and Periwinkle Pucker*, two gorgeous pastel shades, perfect for Spring and Summer.

L-R: Nella Milano 'Lady Lavender' and 'Periwinkle Pucker'

I love the bottles and the patterns on the lids!


Lady Lavender
This is such a pretty colour and I love the smooth glossy finish. I'm wearing two thick coats with no top coat, however next time I use it I will use three thin coats instead as the formula is quite thin. I find that thin formulas work better if you build them up as they're easier to apply and the overall finish will be much smoother and it will prevent streaks too.






Periwinkle Pucker
I love all shades of blue but pale grey-blue shades like Periwinkle Pucker seem to be very fashionable at the moment. I'm wearing two thick coats with no top coat, but again I'd use three thin coats instead next time.





I paired Periwinkle Pucker with some white polkadots. I think pastel with simple white detailing is very pretty - be expecting a lot of it from me over Spring!






Review
The colours are stunning and are so perfect for the upcoming months. The formulas are on the thin side but I still found them easy to apply (I tend to find thicker formulas easier to use), and they dried quicker than most of my other polishes. I didn't experience any chipping after a few days wear (with no top coat), but if I planned to wear these for longer I'd definitely wear a top coat to add some extra gloss and to make them last longer. I'm a big fan of the flat brushes as they allow for a quick and precise application!

  4. I do like the lavender colour. I've never heard of this brand before, but they do look very smart. It's just a shame they're quite sheer as I imagine they'd be tricky to use for nail art x

    1. I reviewed two other colours not long ago. The peach shade was very sheer but I managed to use it in nail art very easily. I painted peach hearts over red and only needed one layer which was amazing really!x
