Happy Saturday! I can't believe it's September already! This year has flown by so quickly. I'm excited about the upcoming change of seasons, as this will be my first time experiencing a true autumn. Yep....I'm a Florida girl all the way. You know we only have summer and a hint of spring down there, so this will be very exciting to see. Anyway, let's get into some nail polish!
Mango Tango is a reddish orange leaning coral creme. The formula was pretty thick and very pigmented. I used two light coats; however, the polish didn't level well at all. I contemplated adding a third, but I didn't want to risk it looking really thick on the nail.
Red Label is a super bright red creme. Milani's site describes it as a '"true red." That's a pretty accurate description.The formula was good and it went on easily in two coats. It dried to a glossy finish, even without topcoat.
Modern Rouge is described on the brand's site as a "fuchsia red." I feel this one is best described as a bight cherry red with a creme/jelly hybrid formula. I used three coats and there was some visible nail line, due to the jelly-like formula. It is important to note that this one is a stainer. This one stained, even though I used base coat, so you may want to double up.
Iconic Red is a "deep cherry red." I think the name fits this one perfectly. This is such a classic, staple red creme. It's one of those colors that will stand the test of time. It can be worn by polish addicts of all ages, while maintaining a classy look. The formula on this one was absolutely AMAZING. Basically perfection in a bottle. It was opaque in one coat, but I still used two here. It dried to a super glossy finish without topcoat. Love this!
Ruby Stone is a deep shimmery red polish. It had a good formula and was perfect in just two light coats. This one seems like a holiday type of red, so I will make sure I pull it out later in the year.
Enchanting is described on Milani's site as a "deep Bordeaux red." This is definitely a deep, vampy color that's perfect for the fall season. It has a great formula that went on easily in two coats. It dries to a glossy finish, even before adding topcoat. This is one of those deeper oxblood tomes that appears borderline brown at times. The pictures really show the brow side of it more than what's apparent in real life.
Overall, I'm still impressed with these new polishes from Milani. For the most part, the formulas are pretty good and the colors are pretty. None of the colors are truly unique, but for $3.99 each, these are well worth it. A good creme can't be overlooked! You can purchase these polishes at retail stores across the country. You can also purchase online by ordering from Milani's website.
