Beauty Review: Skinfood Milk Creamy Nail Polish in Lavender Milk + The Face Shop Shimmer Top Coat

After I purchased Skinfood Milk Creamy Nail Polish in Mint Milk, I bought a few more colors: a light blue, purple, and cream colors.

The purple is called Lavender Milk.
It's a creamy purple color, but it's too dark for summer in my opinion. I would have preferred a pastel lilac color instead. But it's a nice color anyway. It's very similar to OPI Parlez-vous OPI?, except this one is lighter.

For some reason, it was hard to capture the true color of the polish. The actual color is a bit darker than the picture.
Here's a picture of OPI Parlez-vous OPI? from an old post to compare.

I did 2 coats which seems fine, but under light it appears streaky. I'll have to use at least 3 coats next time. I also used The Face Shop Shimmer Top Coat. It adds a very subtle shimmer that gives some oomph to any color.

The consistency and application are the same as Skinfood Mint Milk, which I reviewed previously. However, the color doesn't excite me. In my opinion, it is too dark for summer and reminds me of OPI Parlez-vous OPI?.

I like the soft shimmer, but I can't say that this is an excellent top coat in general.
