Milani High Speed Fast Dry Polish for Spring 2012

If I could change my nails everyday to coordinate with my outfits I would. As a matter of fact, I probably could but I don’t because I’m just too lazy and accident prone. I always happen to do something to mess up my nails while they are drying. That is why I always use a high speed top coat. In comes Milani High Speed Fast Dry Polish in eight new fun shades for Spring. Opaque in one coat and dries in 60 seconds, huh? I’ll take that!

"Milani High Speed Fast Dry Fast Fuchsia"

Fast Fuchsia, bright hot pink creme

Milani High Speed Fast Dry Violet Dash

Violet Dash, blue based purple creme

"Milani High Speed Fast Dry Yellow Whiz"

Yellow Whiz, bright primary yellow creme

Milani High Speed Fast Dry Jiffy Orange

Jiffy Orange, bright red based orange creme

Milani High Speed Fast Dry Hot Pink Frenzy

Hot Pink Frenzy, bright coral pink with pearl finish

Not shown: White On the Spot (bright white creme), Rapid Cherry (blue based red creme), and Black Swift (Black creme)

The shades are pretty but not really unique at all. I have similar shades in my collection for almost all of these. They are extremely thick which allows them to be opaque in one coat, however this is not ideal for drying time. Did they dry in 60 seconds? Not at all. They are just too thick for this to be possible. They did dry to the touch within a few minutes but not quite 60 seconds. I still had to be extra careful with my nails and use my Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. These also chip quick. On my fingernails I couldn’t get more than a few days wear without them chipping. Overall these are okay, nice colors and dries somewhat fast but I wish they stayed on longer.

When I’m not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.

      Violet Dash is super pretty. Also check out China Glaze Spontaneous. If you do a search I have swatches here.

    I luv this blog! You alway post products and posts that are so relivant to me. I just got my nais done Monday I purchased Dude Blue (A Milani neon blue shade) a awhile ago when they were on sale and decided to give it a try and I must say I was impressed. The color pops and I’ve been getting compliments…the polish quality seems good so far. Two coats was all I needed and no creases or signs of chipping thus far 🙂 I’ll have to check out the High Speed line…that jiffy Orange is calling me …

    I really liked the last one “hot pink frenzy”. I am thinking of try that color on my nails. Oh! the price is also reasonable.
