MILANI Nail Lacquer High Speed Fast Dry : Swatches and Review

Hi, my darlings! Don't you just LOVE Saturdays?! I know I do! Finally, a chance to sleep in...and in my case, REALLY sleep in! After all that much-needed sleep, since I barely sleep 4-5 a night during the week, I finally wake up refreshed...and excited for all the blog posts to come! Today's post is particularly special because it is the first of what I'm sure will be a series of fabulous posts marking my partnership with Milani Cosmetics!

My press package from Milani was packed absolutely full of some gorgeous shades, including their entire Spring collection! Now, since many of these are beautiful pastel cremes, I realized my lightbox was just not cutting it for color-accurate pictures. So, in an attempt to show you the true beauty of these polishes, I've changed up my lighting--all pictures are taken under a direct, 60 W warm white bulb. I'm quite pleased with how these pics came out under this lighting set-up!

My first post showcases three beautiful polishes from Milani's High Speed Fast Dry collection--Aqua Brisk, Blue Zoom and Sangria Rush. I found these polishes to be richly pigmented and very easy-to-use--I absolutely love the new, flat brush that made application a breeze! Although these polishes are formulated to only require one coat, I used 2 thin coats for all the swatches below. I personally found 2 thin coats to give me the best result but if you are used to painting in thicker coats, I do believe you could definitely get away with one coat! I was very impressed with the drying time on these--barely a couple of minutes and they were safe to touch! Definitely lives up to their High Speed Fast Dry claim! Lastly, I'd also like to mention the shine of these polishes--all swatches below are shown with NO topcoat but look at the glossy finish! LOVED that!

With all that said, let's get right into swatches, shall we?

First, I have for you Aqua Brisk--a lovely aqua creme polish. I love how bright and perfect this is for Spring! Plus, I think this would be perfect as "undies" for your favorite glitter!

Next, I have for you Blue Zoom--a vibrant royal blue creme polish. It was really hard to pick since all three of these polishes are right up my alley, but I dare say this was my favorite! I love how rich and pigmented this shade is and how it really complements my skin tone!

Last but definitely not the least, I have for you Sangria Rush--a vampy burgundy wine creme polish with purple undertones. Although I used 2 coats of this, more out of habit than not, this one was the one I would have been most comfortable with using just one coat! I love this shade of burgundy for the Winter--such a sexy, sophisticated look!

So there you have it, my darlings! 3 gorgeous polishes from Milani's High Speed Fast Dry collection! These are available on Milani Cosmetic's online site HERE for the fab price of $4.99 each! You can also pick them up at select drugstore/retailers such as CVS, Walgreens and Duane Reade.
