Milani Liquid Metals Color Swatches

I spotted these at my CVS yesterday and decided I needed to pick up a few. If you remember around a month ago I posted some swatches from an earlier Liquid Metals collection. Those colors were more neutrals, blacks, and whites. Now, Milani has introduced a new part to this collection which is made up of bright colors.

Here is the display (sorry for the bad phone pictures)

I'm not entirely sure how to describe the finishes of these. They're have way more dimension than a typical shimmer. Perhaps they are microshimmer metallics? They look like look crushed up gemstones on a bottle!

Here are the colors

Melt Down: Darker Red shimmery metallic
Melt With U: Pink toned red shimmery metallic
Metal Gear: Copper-orange shimmery metallic
Melt in the Sun: Yellow toned gold shimmery metallic
Molten Rock: Blue-Turquoise shimmery metallic
Hot Metal: Fuchsia w/ slight blue duochrome jelly w/ violet,blue, and gold glass fleck

I can't say this enough how impressed I with Milani nail polish. I think they have the best selection of finishes and colors of any other drugstore nail polish (excluding the ones you find at Sally's). They are reasonably priced and come out with stunning collections.

I didn't purchase all of these, but I did purchase Hot Metal, Melt Down, and 2 bottles of Molten Rock. I'll be giving one of those bottles of Molten Rock away in my small summer giveaway I'll be posting tomorrow!
L-R: Molten Rock, Melt Down, & Hot Metal

Molten Rock (Indoor w/ flash)

This is a turquoise-blue metallic shimmer. I'm not sure how I can really describe it exactly. I've seen people question if this is similar to Zoya Charla. I do not have Zoya Charla, but from what I've read it is a similar color, but Charla's finish is much more blingy. I think this would be a great alternative if you don't have Charla right now or don't plan on getting it soon.

Molten Rock (Outdoor in sunlight)

Sunlight definitely brings these too life. This photograph does not do it justice. These shimmer and shine like treasure!

Melt Down (Indoor w/ flash)

This is a darker red metallic shimmer.

Melt Down (Outdoors in sunlight)

Again, this photo does not do it justice. This looks like you painted crushed rubies on your nails!

Hot Metal (Indoors w/ flash)

This is the most unique of the bunch. This is a fuchsia blue-toned jelly, w/ a slight duochrome effect, and tiny blue,violet, and gold glass fleck glitter throughout. If anyone has MAC Dazzleglass in Funtabulous this somewhat reminds me of that just darker, richer, and with more depth.

Hot Metal (Outdoors in sunlight)

Gorgeous! I love this one!

Overall these are GREAT!! I think the best ones are definitely Hot Metal & Molten Rock. If you are unsure of which ones to get I'd definitely recommend those for sure! Remember, I'll be throwing my extra Molten Rock in my giveaway that I'll post tomorrow!

What do you think of these colors and this collection? Have tried these or are planning on getting some?

Have a great Saturday night!
