Avid readers of my blog should know that I love nail polish and I have been really loving the Milani brand for their lacquers.
Well Milani came out with the Rockstar Heavy Glitter Collection and nail polish fanatics went crazy. THESE ARE 1 COAT GLITTERS! What a crazy thought as glitter means that it takes a couple coats to build up.
The first one I have to review is called Purple Gleam. Its a beautiful dark true purple glitter that has depth while being a true shade of purple. Ive seen many purple glitters but this color is so intriguing that it definitely stands out!

Whenever I wear this lacquer I get so many compliments. Its really a truly insane nail polish. It took me two thin coats or one thick coat to get the applied look. (I missed a spot on the bottom for this picture oh well) This glitter is super saturated and opaque and I was very impressed by the quality.
The next bottle I have to review is Red Sparkle from the same Rockstar Glitter Collection. When I saw how pretty this red was I was secretly comparing it to swatches of Ruby Pumps and other classic red glitters to see if it was a dupe or was unique.
No dupe for this bad boy! This one is so opaque in one thick coat and is really stunning when it sparkles. The glitter is made of light and dark red shades and it again creates an awesome depth to this lacquer. I feel like this is the undiscovered stunner in the collection.
Last but not least I have a Milani polish from their Jewels Fx line. Everyone wanted one from this line. I got the Silver Disco Ball like color. This polish was not as big online since most of the drugstores did not carry this shade in their display set.
Silver is a hexagon glitter that is really in your face. Its so fun and I felt like partying as soon as I applied it to my nails. I have some big glitter polishes that feel like your swimming around the bottle to pick some glitter to apply but this is not like that. It was super easy to apply and did not take many coats to get opaque.
I loved this and its totally unique in my collection. I even bought a second one for a friend. All it takes is two generous coats to get your disco ball nails!
I am always impressed with Milani cosmetics. Even though you can find the brand at drugstores they consistently apply better than higher end polishes. The company keeps coming out with awesome lines and collections and they certainly keep my interest. I think they find unique colors and the price point is really great at $5.
Milani cosmetics are fun, affortable and have excellent quality. For under $5.50 at most drugstores these are well worth a purchase. I am so pleased with all my milani cosmetics and have not really had any complaints. This line like the others is original and applies excellently.
