These days in the enormous, wonderful world of colorful nail polishes it’s incredibly important for polish to not only have a good formula but a unique color selection. Anyone else just feel so overwhelmed looking for a “WOW” shade that is also wallet-friendly? Well thank goodness for Milani Cosmetics, a brand who chooses to aim for Color with Impact with “trend setting colors that have no boundaries”.
Mission Accomplished. In fact, we were so impressed with this line of nail colors we jumped into the video world so we could offer you a look at 25 of the new spring 2012 Milani Nail Lacquers! Just hit play to feast your eyes on the polish eye candy (while enjoying the music of Derwood Andrews, Stef’s Hub!):
Whew – that’s a lot of scrumptious shades! Aside from their normal nail lacquer and High Speed Fast dry lines (which we’ll be looking at tomorrow), there are two sparkling collections that we were oh so excited to try; One Coat Glitter and Jewel FX.
First let’s take a look at the the One Coat Glitter polishes ($4.99 each) which adds smooth bling to your plain nails or nail color. All of these applied nicely with buildable coverage to your liking. There are three new additions to this line (shown from left in the photo below).
Twinkle – a purple and blue party for your nails.
Pink Flare – pink and holographic multi-sized glitter mix that has tons of pizazz.
Lavender Fizz – a gorgeous sparkly flash of multi-sized light purple glitter. Pastel purple glitter is so chic for spring!
Next, the most outrageous collection in the Milani polish family, the Jewel FX line (shown in the top photo). This one’s for the serious glitter fanatics out there. Milani totally stepped up their game with this new batch of Jewel FX polishes ($4.99 each) and some of these are incredibly unique.
There are five new polishes for Jewel FX:
Red – red chunky glitter, if you put enough coats on your nails will look like Dorothy’s ruby slippers.
Lavender – a multi-sized glitter mix that would look perfect over Lavender Fizz One Coat Glitter (or Violet Dash High Speed, as seen in the photo below).
Fuchsia – multi-sized glitter which reminds me of the 80’s!
Hot Pink – pink and holographic chunky glitters that make for one really unique look.
Teal – my favorite of the bunch, it’s like a sea treasure with a fine and chunky mix of blue, green, silver and holographic glitter.
• Extremely affordable trendy colors at just under $5 a pop!
• Available at participating drugstores including CVS, Walgreens and Target.
• DBP, Toluene & Formaldehyde Free and made in the USA!
• Glitter nail polish removal can be a pain, ‘nuff said!
• Sometimes the formula can be runny while on the brush – watch out for drips!
Tune in tomorrow when we’ll take a look at even more eye popping polishes from Milani’s Classic Nail Lacquer and High Speed Fast Dry lines. And don’t forget to check in Wednesday for your chance to win all 25 shades seen in the video – and 23 additional Milani goodies!
