These Syrup Nails are harder than they appear to be. I actually tried this technique with a few different polishes and it just didn't show through; it didn't translate. The other day I picked up this Milani Rad Purple and was pleasantly surprised it was a jelly. It's from their neon collection and it's beautiful!
So, syrup nails are a way of using a jelly to get a gradient effect. Notice the color is more concentrated at the tip. I only wish you couldn't see the lines from the different layers. Maybe a little glitter would've hidden that a bit. I love this effect, but I think I love this polish even more. It doesn't try with much of a shine, but isn't matte enough to truly be matte either. Definitely needs a top coat if you want that glossy look.
Oh, the formula for this polish is awesome, by the way! Such a smooth application! I have nothing negative to say about this polish, except I guess, that it doesn't really look neon to me. Bright? Yes. Neon? Not so much.
