This is the first wet n wild nail polish I've ever purchased. i got mine at walmart for 4 dollars, i know they are cheaper in the states. still i only paid 4 dollars for it, which compared to my usual essie nail polishes its a lot cheaper. this colour is great! only takes 2 coats to get exactly what it looks like in the bottle if you want an even more natural just one coat will do! the brush is wider. reminds me of the sally hansen insta dry nail polish brush which i love. just one swipe and youre done. i will def be checking out other colours!
Everything you've heard is true. This is the queen of all pale milky shades. Truly neutral (look up pics online, it doesn't look too pink for brown-skinned hands or too brown for pale pink hands). Streakless. Gorgeous formula. Wide brush makes application as easy as a song. One coat is completely sheer, two coats is a visible milky wash, three coats a translucent milky shade. Perfectly flattering.
Found mine at Walmart, couldn't find this shade anywhere else for some reason.
Love this color it is the perfect neutral "milky" shade without hitting the pink color that most come with.
The application is really easy because of the brush however check the brushes before you buy because some are bent or shaped all crazy.
I do have to put three coats on to get the true color which is kinda inconvenient however that is to be expected for sheer natural looking colors such as this one.
This polish does not dry particularly fast but that doesn't bother me too much.
I also think this is a great shade for those afraid to go full on white on your nails.
Just picked this up for 99¢ at Walgreens. It is now a core shade, so it won't be difficult for anyone to find. I bought this when it came out in 2009 and again now in 2013. Color is the same, just different packaging. Newer packaging is better IMO. Still a lovely goto neutral.
I have found a replacement for my essie mademoiselle!
Color: Less Pink but more opaque than the Essie.
Application: The polish itself isn't streaky (especially not compared to Essie polishes) but because the brush is so "rough" it's easy to streak it if you press down hard. My suggestion for applying this polish is to just barely have the brush touch your nail and then pull.
Wear: with a good base and topcoat it's pretty long!
Coats: Need 3 to get to a semi-opaque/not-clear color. continued >>
I'm generally not one for demure nail polishes, but alas, everyone has to grow up sometime and get a job. Mines happens to be a pretty conservative place, so my beloved deep dark sparkly Zoyas and CHGs weren't going to cut it. 2% Milk is a lovely sheer, pale, pale, pale pink color. If you use only one coat you'll still be able to see the half moon of your nail. It gives that great expensive manicure look for under $1 (that's right, UNDER ONE DOLLAR). The brush is great, the formula dries quickly and evenly, the polish doesn't chip, and even the bottle feels like it's good quality. I'm generally skeptical of cheap cosmetics, but this is the genuine article
Lovely! I found this old bottle at the bottom of my nail bag and thought I'd give it a try. I believe the bottle is from late 2009, so it's the older packaging - the stubby bottle with the old brush. I really wish I had the newer brush! I find this formula streaky but I think with practice I can figure it out. If not, I'll buy a new bottle. As other reviewers have noted, it's a sheer neutral beige that for some reason appears cooler and white/pinkish on my Asian NC25-30 skin tone. I like two very thin coats on top of base coat and topped with Seche Vite. The result is very sheer and feminine. I've never given myself a French manicure for some reason, but this polish makes me want to!
Dirt cheap, awesome color, wears as well as any Essie and Opi. A perfect sheer, professional looking neutral - one of those shades everyone should have at least one of. Coverage is sheer to medium depending on if you do 2 or 3 coats. I really enjoy the brushes in the new bottles, too. Worth a shot for the price!
2% Milk is a lovely, creamy beige jelly polish. The formula is excellent, dry time moderate, and gives your nails such a sophisticated, soft look. You could build it up to opacity, but it will probably take 3 or more coats. I think it's best worn at 2, so my half-moons and visible nail line show through slightly.
I had to take a point off for the brush though. Oh the brush...it's just...it's just awful (in my opinion, anyway). It's incredibly wide and thick and I prefer a thinner brush with more control. I suppose with a very careful hand you could get away without too much clean up, but for those of us with shaky hands (or just impatience), the brush makes clean up necessary.
Don't let the brush deter you from this polish though! My policy is that if the polish is wonderful, then it's worth the tricky application.
Price- about $1.50-$2.00, color is an awsome neutural soft creamy beige. I had heard a lot of other reviews about how the "manicure" style brush was too short and stiff.. when to my surprise i really love it ! its not a floppy brush and its not too stiff . it is a little flat but thats ok it doesn't make a difference in application. lasts a good while. Ive gotten so many compliments on this color!
