I am so excited to show you gals a recent find that I am crazy about! I know nail colors come in about a dime a dozen and dupes are literally everywhere. BUT, I recently got into nail color and I became obsessed with Essie's Ballet Slippers! It's such an elegant, glossy baby pink with the right amount of glossiness. An awesome My Nails but Better everyday color. I browsed around my local Walgreen's and a Wet n' Wild stand with nail colors on sale caught my attention. I noticed something similar to Ballet Slippers, called 2% Milk. HOW CUTE IS THAT? The name itself enticed me to keep it! :) For $1.99, I decided hey what the heck and brought it home with me.
Essie's Ballet Slippers and Wet N' Wild in 2% Milk
Wet n' Wild's 2% Milk - It's a milky nude shade that seems to be universally flattering. It's not exactly white, but more of a nude baby pink. Isn't it a pretty color? It took 2 coats of polish for this opacity. O_O
Essie's Ballet Slippers - A little more pinkier than 2% milk but it still has the same enamel shine that 2% Milk has. I think that's the main reason it stood out to me as a possible dupe.
What I liked about 2% Milk is the brush! It's a lot more easier to use because of the flat shape. The flat brush almost literally coats the entire nail in one stroke. It's seriously like a game changer for me. I own quite a few polishes but none have the flat brush. I can't even emphasize how much I love it! LOL
Hopefully you can see the brush well enough. I prefer the flat ones to the round ones because it's a lot more easier to apply and I get a cleaner application. It presses the polish onto the surface of my nail flat so doesn't create a buildup of excess nail color on my nail. I'm pretty sure I've gone to the deep end of explaining this and nail pros would probably laugh at the absurdity of my statement ;)
Nonetheless, I am raving about it - The gorgeous shade, the awesome brush and the price! I am very happily enjoying this color now. 2% Milk is a very timeless color and exudes wedding elegance. One of the best purchases this year, frealz.
Have you ever tried Wet n' Wild nail colors? Are flat brushes very common in other brands? Let me know what you all think! :)
