Milani Fierce Foil 2015 Nail Polish!

I purchased the new Milani Fierce Foil Collection at CVS, this collection is part of the Milani 2015 Fierce Foil Collection which includes some amazing eyeliner, shadows and nail polish. Check out Nouveau Cheaps blog for more details on the makeup.

The polish retails for $3.99 per bottle, the display states “the look of foil in just one step” this collection has six delicious shades: Capri, Venice, Florence, Milan, Sardinia, and Rome.

Each swatch has two coats, goes on smooth and has a sparkle which is eye catching. I would recommend purchasing a few, my favorites are Capri, and Venice.

Capri- bright pink with gold flecks
Venice-a lovely blue with gold flecks mixed with pink shimer
Florence- medium green with gold fleck, I’m typically not a green fan for polish but I do like this shade
Milan-gold foil glitter, if you need a gold glitter for the collection then you MUST purchase this one
Sardinia-clear base gold flecks mixed in a light glitter base
Rome- a light purple with gold flecks

Milani 3D Holographic Nail Polish

While at the Dollar Store today I found three Milani 3D Holographic polishes from the 2010 Holographic Collection. I never found these at a local store when they launced so I was pretty excited to pick them up for $1.00 each! The Collection had six all together: Hi-Tech, Digital, Cyberspace, HD, 3D, and Hi-Res. The three I purchased are Cyberspace, Hi-Res, and Hi-Tech.

Each Swatch has three coats and went on smooth.

Cyberspace is a light blue with a silver-green shimmer.

Hi-Res is a purple with hints of silver and blue.

Hi-Tech is a lime green with hints of silver and yellow.

Milani Sugar Rush Polish!

I purchased the six new gold label Sugar Rush Polish Collection from Milani which is available now in the permanent display at CVS. Clearly the trend for spring 2014 is glitter top coats and there are plenty to choose from however I did see a difference in the Milani versus the other brands and that would be the color choices.

For the most part I was satisfied with these top coats but there are two which I can live without. The two I could live without are Sugar Cane and Sugar Rush, they look better in the bottle than on the nail and after using both of them. Sugar Cane reminds me of Sinful Colors Tinsel N’ice, and Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat. So far the only brand which has done the fuzzy top coat right is Sally Hansen. Sugar Rush will be good for glitter placement.

Milani and Sally Hansen Nail Designs!

Here are two recent nail designs; both were fun and fairly easy to create! One design is a gradient done with Sally Hansen polish and some loose glitter, while the other was made with Milani nail color and chevron nail stickers which I purchased at Sally’s Beauty Supply. All supplies used for these nails were purchased by me.

For both looks I started with a base coat which I have trusted for years, about 6 months ago I stopped using this base coat and quickly regretted it. The base coat that I swear by is Sally Hansen Double Duty Base and Top Coat; it goes on smooth and dries fast. (It is not a quick dry top coat)

Sally Hansen Gradient

The two colors I used where from the Salon Manicure Collection, The purple is called Purple Pulse and the pink is Cherry Cherry Bang Bang. For this look I used a makeup sponge placed a little of each color and rocked the sponge with the polish on my fingernails. Once the polish was dry I took a small brush and brushed some loose glitter onto the base of the nail and sealed it in with the Double Duty Top coat. I was pleasantly surprised with the results.

Milani Chevron

For this look I used three Milani colors Sweetest Pink, Tropical Fiesta and Silver Dazzle. I stared the base color with Sweetest Pink let it dry then applied the chevron nail guides to the tips of my nails, from there I painted the tips Silver Dazzle. It is important that you remove the tape soon after applying the polish otherwise you will ruin the perfect lines. Once the tape was removed I placed another chevron sticker guide below the Silver Dazzle tip and used Tropical Fiesta.

Milani Texture!

While at my local Walgreens over the weekend I found a new collection from Milani, it is a Limited Edition Textured Cream Lacquer with a Matte finish. There are six colors one gray then five bright and vibrant colors: Spoiled In Fuchsia, Purple Streak, Shady Gray, Yellow Mark, Aqua Splash and Tainted in Red. The price was $3.99 each which is pretty reasonable considering OPI Liquid Sand Lacquer is retailing for $9.00 a bottle.

I test wore the polish and yup I chipped a nail, the good news is that a quick dab of color covers the chip and you can’t even notice due to the textured and Matte look. I did not wear a base or top coat; the colors go on fast and come of easy.

Spoiled In Fuchsia
