New nail polish!

Helloo. So, today I went out and bought a Milani nail polish in Winter Wine, Rich Sable eyeshadow (from the Revlon Matte collection) and Wholesome Earth from the Sally Hansen maximum growth plus Nourishing nail color.
First, the Milani and Wholesome Earth swatches

Yes haha. The swatches (above) were made on an SAT word flash card. I'm such a nerd like that. Anyway, the one to the right would be Wholesome Earth while the one to the left is Milani's Winter Wine. Let's start with Winter Wine.

I LOVE THIS COLOR. On the website, it says that it is a fuschia color, but I find it more of a berry/fuschia color. It's kind of comparable to Covergirl's lipstain in Plum Pout. Whatever. I just really like how well it looks. In darker places, it looks berry-ish but in full sunlight, it really looks fuschia. Nice. It works well without a base/top coat, but I do so anyway because I dont like my nails to turn yellow-ey or become stained. Doesn't chip too much (unlike Orly top coat coughcough worst thing EVER)

Wholesome Earth is NOT like what you see on the website. It's not this strange almost black color. Its more of a purple brown. It's the swatch on the right of the index card. It supposedly has vitamins A,C,E and soy protein. It says so on the little teardrop sticker on the cap/brush thing. I'm not sure if it really helps to nourish my nails... I can't really tell but whatever.

Whew, thats a lot of ingredients, but what do you expect? Nail polish isn't exactly filled with natural ingredients.

What I really love about this color is that you can layer it on for more intensity. What I don't like about this is that it goes on kinda streaky ish. Like it doesn't settle onto the nail too well or something. You know when you put on nail polish and it settles/evens out on its own? Yeah, well this doesn't do that. So.. you definately need a second coat on that. It doesn't really take away from the color, but it's definately kind of annoying.

I still need to try the Revlon Matte... so yeah. I'm actually really interested in the line pattern on the shadow. It's wierd, but w/e
