Milani: Texture Collection

Posted on Mar 5, 2013

So, I’ve been so enthralled by the texture trend that is all the rage so far this year.  I was completely surprised by how much I liked it when I first tried it with OPI’s Liquid Sand polishes from the Mariah Carey Collection.  So when I spotted these a few weeks back at a local store, I was once again intrigued.  Of course, I had to get them all so I could show you guys the entire collection. :)

Just so I don’t end up being repetitive, I will start off by saying that the texture on all of these is similar to a smooth but textured wall.  You can tell it’s bumpy but it’s not bothersome.  I actually didn’t mind it at all.  It doesn’t feel the same as when you put on a hungry glitter without topcoat and you just end up wanting to pick it like crazy.  (Or at least, I do…)

“Aqua Splash” is a an aqua blue polish with texture.  This one was difficult to spread evenly.  It’s also a bit sheer.  With the 2 coats I used, you can see a bit of VNL.  I do like the shade of aqua but the formula is kind of a let down for me.

“Purple Streak” has a darker grape purple textured base.  This one had a much easier formula than “Aqua Splash.”  Easy to apply and nice coverage.  This is 2 coats.

“Shady Gray” is a graphite gray with texture.  The formula is identical to “Purple Streak.”  This is 2 coats.

Milani Shady Gray“Spoiled In Fuchsia” is a fuchsia textured polish.  The texture is less obvious here.  I think there is less of it or it’s smaller?  I’m not quite sure which.  This one had a really great and easy formula!  It was thin enough that it made the application a breeze!  It’s almost a one-coater but this is 2 coats.

“Tainted In Red” is a orange-red textured polish.  It’s a tie between this and “Spoiled In Fuchsia” for my favorite of the collection.  I just adore the color of this polish.  It’s like the color of bright red, red velvet cake.  The application was so nice also.  This is 2 coats.

“Yellow Mark” is a bright sunshine yellow textured polish.  The first coat on this one was pretty easy.  The second coat was more difficult to spread out evenly.  It got a bit chunky.  It did have a nice opacity for a yellow polish which was a nice surprise.  This is 2 coats.

I purchased these at a store called Fred Meyer which is just in the Pacific Northwest, I believe.  They can also be purchased at Walgreen, CVS, Target, KMart, as well as other retailers, in-store and online.
