Swatchfest: New Milani 2012 nail lacquers (picture heavyyy)

Good afternoon, beauties!

From the image and title, you know that there's a TON to cover! Let's get to it!

A delicate, peachy pink pastel infused with a subtle, pink shimmer. A bit streaky on the first coat, but evened out after the next. The pink shimmer is more apparent in person.

U Pinky Swear
A peachy, salmon pink creme. This was 2 coats.

A Rose Mylady 
A peachy, misty rose infused fine silver shimmers. 

Orchidia is well, a medium orchid infused with silver shimmers. The formula was fairly thin and required 3 coats for opacity. 

Sail Away
Probably my favorite nail polish from this entire post. Sail Away is a denim blue infused with silver micro shimmers. This def. reminds me of a pair of jeans. Application was beautiful and only required one coat for complete opacity! 

Beach Front
Beach Front is a gorgeous, powder blue infused with silver micro shimmers. Can you believe that the image above was one coat?! Yes, ladies, one coat! This has def. made it to my top picks list!

Mint Candy
A warm, teal infused with beautiful green/teal shimmers. This was 2 coats.

Key West
An aqua, teal shimmer. The formula was a bit thin and required 2 coats for opacity. 

Silver Stilletos 
A silver, metallic foil. Most silver foils in my stash tend to drag and/or be streaky, but this one applies effortlessly in 2 coats. 

Signature Gold
Hmm, I wouldn't call this gold, but your basic, metallic copper. This applied nicely after 2 coats. 

Teddy Brown
A greige or mushroom creme. Honestly, I have tons of nail polishes similar to this shade, that unfortunately, this color did not impress me to much. Perhaps, a golden shimmer would have set this apart. Nonetheless, this was 2 easy coats. 

Chocolate Sprinkles
A dark brown infused with golden shimmers. This was 2 coats and has also made its way to my top picks.

Dark Coffee
A glossy, chocolate syrup creme. Dark coffee is extremely pigmented and required 2 coats for opacity. One coat could be achieved if you are more careful.

Deep Thoughts
An intense, royal purple infused with magenta shimmers. This is richly pigmented and is oh, so beautiful in person. Not to mention, this nail polish is extremely glossy making it top coat optional. This was 2 easy coats, but I could have gotten away with 1 if I were more careful. Deep thoughts has also made my top picks.

On the Spot
Your basic white creme. This was a bit streaky, but evened out after the second coat.

Black Swift
Your basic black creme that is extremely glossy. First coat was thin and required 2 coats for opacity. 

Yellow Whiz
A bright, yellow glossy creme. Like most yellows, this was pretty streaky and required 2 coats.

Violet Dash
A medium, violet creme. Great formula and is also extremely glossy. This was 2 coats.

Hot Pink Frenzy
A bright, hot pink infused with pink and blue shimmers. This was 2 coats. 

Fast Fuchsia
A cool, fuchsia creme that is opaque after 2 coats. Great formula and flawless application. 

Jiffy Orange
A caution cone orange creme. I had trouble capturing the actual color, so just think of a caution/traffic cone. This was 2 coats and offered beautiful application.

Rapid Cherry
A cool, bright red creme that was opaque after 2 coats.

Pink Flare
A sheer, light pink base infused with silver and pink micro shimmers and small hex holographic glitters. This was 2 coats.

Lavender Fizz
A clear base infused with lavender micro glitters and small lavender hex glitters. This was 2 coats.

 A clear base infused with purple glitters and  small aqua hex glitters. This was 2 coats.

A clear base infused with aqua glitters, medium aqua hex glitters,  medium  green hex glitters, and  medium  silver hex glitters. 

A clear base infused with lavender glitters and medium hex glitters. This was 2 coats.

A clear base infused with magenta glitters and medium magenta hex glitters. This was 2 coats. 

Hot Pink
A clear base infused with medium fuchsia and holo glitters. This was 2 coats.

A clear base infused with medium hex glitters. I have been searching for a plain red hex glitter and Milani did not disappoint! 

Sail Away, Beach Front, Chocolate Sprinkles, Deep Thoughts, Hot Pink, and Red

The good
Great application
Great formula
Ultra glossy 
Maximum of 2 coats
Even Distribution of glitter

The not so good
Some colors were not too unique. 

Each retail for $4.99 and you can find these at your local drugstores Walgreens, CVS, Walmart, and Traget etc. 

As always, hope this helps & happy shopping!

  17. You're one of those evil bloggers who makes every nail polish you swatch look like one I *need* in my collection. *sigh*

  18. Wow, awesome post - you covered a lot! I am having a love affair with Milani polishes - I have two of the blue ones, but the pinks and browns are calling to me - I feel the need to collect work appropriate polishes.

  19. Deep Thoughts is such a lovely deep purple!
