A Dazzling Dotticure with Milani's One Coat Glitter Silver Dazzle

This is an abandoned 'bling' mani (I went with the hand-placed glitter that the nail world went gaga over instead for the actual day (and for good reason, it is truly amazeballs)) from the Digit-al Dozen's Spectacular Sepetember mega-crazy 12 days of nail art that I thought deserved a chance to say hello!

The base is two coats of Milani's One Coat Glitter polish in Silver Dazzle. As I was painting away with this I remembered how these polishes were such a big deal because they needed a lot of top coat, but that was before the 'texture trend' was even considered as a thing! But this polish rivals the original release of the Zoya Pixies both in opacity and dry time.

To art it up I did some dots with a silver foil, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Celeb City - a great standard silver foil. Then I placed a single clear rhinestone at the base of each nail over the central polka dot, but it was rather challenging to spot both in person and in photos. I didn't top coat these because I liked the texture ;) It reminds me a little of wrapping paper!

Psst. If you can't get your fill of textured polishes (I know I for one have been stock piling all of the Zoya Pixie Dust polishes because sparkles), you can grab some at the drugstore for $5 a pop! That's about half the price of the Zoya and OPI ones! You have 8 shades to chose from with the Milani one coat glitters, so there's something for everyone (although I think the three newer additions Twinkle, Lavender Fizz, and Pink Flare are less full coverage).

Are you a fan of the texture polish trend? Is there a brand you prefer to get your texture on??


  1. This is such a fun and sparkly mani... it really reminds me of the holidays! I love how blingy it is, and you can never go wrong with polka dots! And the texture looks super cool =)

  2. This is such a gorgeous mani! I really like the OPI textured polishes best

  3. This is so beautiful!!!! Love the shade!
