Milani Texture Creams Swatches & Review

I have great collection for you all today. I initially did not have any interest at all in the texture polish trend. I didn't even want to try it. Curiosity got the best of me, and I'm glad it did. I admit, once I tried it I felt differently. The Milani Textured Creams are truly awesome!  The Milani Texture Creams come in 6 bright colors. I love the colors Milani chose to use with these polish!



L-R:
Tainted Red, Yellow Mark, Aqua Splash, Purple Streak, Spoiled in Fuchsia, and Shady Gray


Tainted Red
Tainted Red is a bright red textured cream. (2 coats)

Yellow Mark
Yellow Mark is a sunny yellow textured cream. (2 coats)

Aqua Splash
Aqua Splash is an aqua textured cream. (3 coats)

Purple Streak
Purple Streak is a bright grape textured cream. (2 coats)

Spoiled in Fuchsia
Spoiled in Fuchsia is a fuchsia textured cream. (2 coats)

Shady Gray
Shady Gray is a deep gray textured cream. (2 coats)



Color: The colors are great. The colors are very pigmented. I love how they chose bright colors, and the addition of the gray shade is great.

Formula: I found the formula on all of these easy to work with. I find these applied well without any noticeable trouble. I used 2 coats on all of these swatches with the exception of Aqua Splash. I think Aqua Splash needed an extra coat.

Texture: These look like stucco. The finish is very cool! The texture of these certainly not smooth, but they're not unpleasant or prickly. I'm not typically fan of texture, but this isn't anything that is uncomfortable to feel or makes me want to reach for top coat at all. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Overall: Amazing collection! I love that these are creams. I actually prefer these textured creams to the other glittery textured polishes out there. The major plus is that this is a drugstore brand! That makes these really affordable.

The retail price of these polishes is $4.99. They are limited edition. These will be available at Meijer, Walgreens, HEB, and Fred Meyer. You'll also be able to purchase these from the Milani Cosmetics website.

What are your favorites in this collection? 

* I received these polishes for my honest review by Milani Cosmetics.

Happy Tuesday!

    I am like you - not a fan of the texture polishes! These Milani ones have some gorgeous shades though - enough to make me want to try!

  8. Wow, these are cool! I cannot say if I am a fan of texture or not - I
    bought one Zoya one and have yet to wear it, and passed on the OPI's.
    These look really cool though!

  11. Aqua splash is my favorite. I don't, however, see me getting any. They look like my polish used to before I discovered quick drying top coats, like Seche Vite.

  13. The yellow looks like lemon peel! These look like a lot of fun, all the colors look great. Excellent review Steph - your blog is really good. I think your pictures are excellent - just the right distance - not too close, not too far away to really see how the polishes look. I also appreciate the close-up shot of just the polish, and then for collections, the photo montage. I can tell that you've really thought through how to make your blog fun and informative to look at for your readers. Keep up the great work!

    I havent been impressed by any previous textured polishes, but I really like these. For some reasn, I prefer these to the glittery textured polishes. If I can get them on sale, I will probably pick up the blue and purple.
