REVIEW: CVS Exclusive Milani Nail Shades for Spring 2012
Today I will be showing you 8 of the 10 CVS exclusive Milani polishes for Spring 2012. Haha, yes, yes, I know - I know the picture above is swatcherific-overload, but continue reading for a review and larger picture of each individual polish.
Here I have three coats of U Pinky Swear, a cute bubblegum-pink creme polish. This is pictured without a top coat, so you can really see how the Milani polishes shine. I love the easy and flawless application of this polish.
A Rose Mylady is a brown-pink neutral creme polish. When I was swatching this color on my nail wheels, I had a difficult time deciding whether it belonged with the pinks or the neutrals. In the end, I decided to put her on the pinks because the word “rose” is used in the name. Anyway, in the picture above, I used three coats to reach opacity.
And here are two coats of a milky chocolate polish called Natural Touch. I am not a fan of this color since it is too neutral for me (I prefer bright, vivid colors).
Pink Slippers is a very sheer beige polish. You can see that there are visible nail lines even though I used four coats of this polish. You may want to layer this polish over a creme for better coverage. I really like that it is laced with a golden shimmer, but I wish it were less sheer.
Check out this hot pink! Fuchsia Fierce is a one-coat polish. The name says it all. It’s fuchsia. And it’s fierce! I usually shy away from hot pinks and reds because I hate staining my nails, but surprisingly enough, my nails were fine after removal. That’s an A+ in my book.
Pink & Proper is very close Pink Slippers, in that they are both sheer and have a golden shimmer. Here I have three coats of Pink & Proper.
Hipster Plum is a gorgeous vampy violet creme polish. Here I used two coats for complete coverage. I cannot wait to use this during the fall. It’s such a sophisticated, chic color!
And oh my, this is Chocolate Sprinkles, a yummy metallic brown polish with gold “sprinkles”! This color really wowed me! I could not stop staring at my nails after applying two coats of this polish. It’s definitely a must-have. Application is a dream for a metallic polish - smooth, no streaks at all. I absolutely love this polish.
What do you think? Will you be going to CVS to pick up some of these beauties? They retail for $4.49/bottle. If you don’t have a CVS nearby, you can also purchase them from the Milani website and on Amazon.
