Drugstore Buy of the Week - Milani Color Statement Nail Lacquer

Milani has recently revamped their line of inexpensive nail polishes and if you've never experienced the brand, now's the time to take a look!

Milani nail polishes are not only affordable (about $3.99), but now with their expanded color range, it's the perfect line to try that bold blue, glitter shade or daring pink (most of the shades are conservative and there are a lot of variations on red) , that you don't know if you'll be committed to 6 months from now - so why spend a lot of money? There are 36 shades in all.  And even better, you can use these products knowing that they are also cruelty free.

Two shades which were seen on the SS New York Fashion Week runways were Corrupted Coral and Spotlight White.  While these will be perfect for next spring and summer, I think the white is a shade which has become a new "nude" or neutral for all skin tones, and is a nice change of pace year round.

Spotlight White (shown at the top), is a pure white creme shade with no glitter or shimmer.  The formula is smooth and on the thicker side.  With a good base and top coat, I found I needed two coats
of the nail polish for a true glossy white.  The polish wear is pretty good as well, and I noticed only a few chips coming in after about the 4th day.

Corrupted Coral (shown, left) will definitely be in my coral shade rotation come the warmer months.  It's a very nice soft blend of pink and orange, and also fairly smooth and thick.  The brush in this new bottle is shorter and a bit wider, so it's easier to cover the nail bed with fewer strokes (which means less change to smudge or mess it up when doing an at home manicure).- RLB
