I have never, ever, been interested in sheer polishes. I can appreciate their place in the nail polish world, but I abhor visible nail lines. I do. I picked up 2% Milk for the sole purpose of creating some glitter jelly sandwiches. I never got around to doing any and I’d actually forgotten I owned this polish until a few days ago when I picked up my one and only Lynderella: Love, Lace, and Lilacs. I looked at some swatches and decided I wanted to do it over a nude polish, but none of my nude polishes seemed to fit the bill. I think I was channeling my Nana.
I decided to give Wet n Wild’s 2% Milk a shot. To my complete surprise I kind of fell in love with it all on its own – visible nail lines and all! I used three coats to get a look I liked. I think the finished look is very classy and ladylike. It would make a great work appropriate or interview polish as well! What I liked most is that each coat looked really nice all on its own – there was no streaking at all.
2% Milk is often compared to Sugar Coat, also from the megalast line. While I don’t have both, the biggest difference would be that Sugar Coat builds to opacity a bit quicker and it is more suited to cooler skin tones. 2% Milk is more of a nude beige and suited best for warmer skin tones.
Make sure to check out the pictures below! I’ve included swatches with Love, Lace, & Lilacs layered over 2% Milk – I love, love, love this look! If you love it too, you can pick up 2% Milk at Walgreen’s for under $2!
