I was lucky to receive the Milani Fierce Foils collection for reviewing yesterday and one of the ladies from PAA over on FB asked for swatches so I decided to do some very unofficial swatches for the group and I thought, “Why not turn it into a post?”. So here they are. Like I said the swatches are completely impromptu, not even cleaned up but this way you get the idea of what to expect from this line.. Let me get to the pics.
First pic of one coat, no top, artificial light, no light box
Two coats, no top coat, artificial light, no light box
This is one coat, no top, no light box, artificial light.
Now let’s look at them individually, I know some ppl said that there was a big difference between the polish in bottle as opposed to the polish on nail. I didn’t really think so but I’ll show you each and you can be the judge. All pictures are two coats no top coat, artificial light in light box.
You can get away with one coat of Milan
Three coats for Florence as I messed up my nail when taking a pic of the previous swatch
Sardina is a pearl base crelly with bronze glassflakes, you see two coats but I believe three are needed for opacity
No justice is done to Venice in this picture, this polish is gorgeous! Its a beautiful cobalt blue with purple shimmer. SO pretty!!
So, what do you think? I really liked them specially Venice, Florence and Milan. The formula is quite nice for all of them except maybe for Sardina in which you need three coats but the application is great on all. I will be doing a full post on these when I get to actually play with them.
Thank you so much for reading and pls let me know what you think of these first impression posts, this is my first time doing one and I don’t know if its something you like to see.
You can find Milani online here or in many drugstores around the country.
