MILANI Color Statement collection (PART I) : Swatches and Review

Hi there, my darlings! After a pleasant weekend of 50 and 60 degree temperatures, it's frigid in NYC...FRIGID! 30 degrees and windy. But I'm not ready for full-blown winter just yet and in defiance, I'm going to showcase 6 gorgeous, BRIGHT shades from Milani Cosmetics's latest Color Statement line!

But before we get to swatches, let's talk about application and formula! Though there are 36 polishes in this collection and formula varied from rich cremes to sparkly glitters to juicy jellies, the application of each polish, unless specifically mentioned, was a breeze. Most were perfectly opaque at 2 coats while the jellies looked best with 3 thin coats. Topcoat wasn't always necessary since most of them dried to a smooth, glossy finish but when called for, I used 1 coat of Milani Cosmetics' Fast Dry Topcoat. Alrighty then, with that, let's get to today's swatches!

Spotlight White is a bright, crisp white creme. I found this particular shade of white absolutely great for nail art--some you have seen if you follow me on Instagram!

Club Lights is a clear base full of light pink and dark pink metallic glitter. The swatches show two thin coats dabbed onto Spotlight White from above, topped with Milani's Fast Dry Topcoat to finish the look.

Hot Pink Rage is a shockingly bright hot pink with a crelly finish. The swatches below show 3 thin coats topped with 1 thin coat of Fast Dry Topcoat. Love, love, love this color! It's so bright and fun that it makes even the gloomiest day seem better!

Mango Tango is a bright orange with red undertones and a crelly finish. The swatches below show 3 thin coats topped with 1 thin coat of Fast Dry Topcoat. Wouldn't this be a perfect color for Summer?! This is definitely going with me to my summer trip next year!

Ultra Violet is a bright, shimmery purple creme. Another instant favorite with me--that hidden shimmer is a killer!

Blue Print is a bright, royal blue creme. Ah, what a beautiful, beautiful shade of blue! And great for any season!

So there you have it, my darlings! 6 bright beauties from Milani's Color Statement collection!
