Milani Spring 2012 Polishes!

Hello readers! I have some more Milani polishes to show you today! These are more new colors from this spring and they are so gorgeous! All swatches below are shown with top coat.

First, I'm showing one of my favorites: Sail Away. This is a gorgeous dark cornflower blue packed with silver shimmer! And the best part? This was ONE COAT! I really need more one coat polishes. This was very easy to apply and at one coat, it's definitely a winner in my book.

Next, we have one that surprised me: Silver Stilettos. I don't have a silver foil and didn't realize what I was missing until I put this on! This was 2 coats and was really easy to work with. I can't wait to use it for gradients and other nail art. It really is stunning!

Onto the problem child of the set: Juno. It is a baby pink with the slightest golden pink shimmer that I don't even think my camera picked up. It was a bit harder to apply, needing 3 coats to full coverage of all areas.

Here is another of my favorites: Mint Candy. This was the base of Haze Glaze Flutter in this post. It has a gorgeous shimmer and applies very easily. This is 2 coats.

And for the last of my favorites: Key West. This polish has quite the hype around the nail polish community and now I can see why! It's a gorgeous teal foil that really makes me think of summer beach visits. This is 2 coats. You may have seen this as a base color for one of the Jordana glitters I posted a few days ago!

The only other 1 coater in the bunch: Beach Front. This was also a base color for a Jordana glitter in my post a couple of days ago. A gorgeous sky blue with silver shimmer. If you are careful, it covers in one coat. That is all you are seeing in the picture below. It's on the thicker side so that's why I say "if you are careful." Very pretty and I like that the shimmers set it apart from my other light blues in my collection.

Lastly, this is Orchidia. Again, you got a sneak peek during my Jordana glitter post of this one being used as a base. This has the same silver shimmer in it that Beach Front and Sail Away have, but it's not as packed so it's more subtle. It was easier to work with as well, since it was thinner. This is 2 coats and a gorgeous light purple.

What do you think? Which are your favorites? Any that you will be picking up now? I still have a couple more Milani Spring 2012 polish posts to show you soon so keep an eye out for those. 

Milani can be found at some local US stores such as Target, CVS, and some Walmarts. You can also find these on the Milani Cosmetics website.  They retail for $4.49 each.
