My Milkshake brings all the boys to the yard...

  Ever since a fabulous karaoke rendition of this glorious song by yours truly, thanks to some Wii game or another (I can't even remember which one now, haha), the "Milkshake" song has been a bit of an inside joke between my family and I.  So of course, when she found the Deborah Lippmann Fashionista trio contained a polish named Milkshake, my big sis knew I had to have it!

  Deborah Lippmann Milkshake is a sheer neutral beige creme, and it is simply gorgeous.  I can't help but feel like my short little nubs I was sporting with this mani don't hardly do it justice - so expect to see it again when they grow out a bit!  Application was perfectly smooth and it evened out beautifully.  This is three coats.  I added the design using Konad Special White and plate m74, and added the dots using Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Raspberry Race and Blue-Away with a dotting tool.  Although I didn't get a picture of Milkshake by itself (not so smart), here it is with the white only.

  Such a fresh and clean color, perfect for spring - or any time really.  And totally work appropriate!  I can't wait to see how this will look over longer nails as well - now I just have to stop ramming my nails into things at the lab so they can finally have a chance to grow out.  Thanks for the gorgeous polish, Christy!  :)
