Not Your Average Manicure, Milani Limited Edition Texture Creams Nail Lacquers

"Milani Texture Creams"

Texture polish is the new wave in nail trends. Every brand is coming out with their own version and the latest to hit the shelves is Milani’s Limited Edition Texture Creams. The Texture Creams come in six bright & vibrant shades that dries down to a matte finish with a textured look and feel. Makes me think of freshly painted concrete.

When I first started swatching these I was kind of on the fence and my boyfriend said they looked creepy lol. But as they dried down the Texture Creams grew on me. I had to laugh myself at Yellow Mark because it makes your nails look like lemons as the color and texture is spot on. I really love the way Spoiled in Fuchsia and Tainted in Red looks and the names are so cute. I think that textured nails look really cool on short nails like mine are at the moment but I do think that it would look really creepy on longer nails. Maybe I’m bugging. Anyway these are going to be all the rage this Summer and Spring and the colors are perfect for the seasons.

You really have to apply these in thin coats and let each one dry good as you will end up with wet spots that take forever to dry if you don’t. In my swatches you can see a few wet spots and some spots where I touched my nails and messed it up a little. They were pretty easy to remove but then again my nails were still slightly wet. I assume that they would be similar to glitters and a little tough to remove, Milani suggests letting a remover soaked cotton ball sit on it for 20-30 seconds for easy removal. All of these were swatched with two coats, no base or top coats.

Milani Limited Edition Texture Creams retail at $4.99 each and may be purchased at Meijer, Walgreens and other locations that carry Milani, and may also be purchased online at www.milanicosmetics.com.
