Just Grayt, Signature Gold and Fuchsia Fierce Swatches. Milani Summer 2012.

This season, I had the opportunity to play with the ENTIRE Summer 2012 Milani Nail Lacquer lineup, thanks to winning a giveaway hosted by another beauty blog!  I’d never sampled anything from this family-managed brand, so it was a wonderful surprise to stumble upon this budget beauty line, and its on-trend color lineup for Summer 2012.

Milani Summer 2012 Nail Lacquer Collection:

Just Grayt, Signature Gold, and Fuchsia Fierce Swatches

Above are three of my faves from the collection:  Just Grayt, Signature Gold, and Fuchsia Fierce.  The finish is very glossy, and the wear time is excellent.  I got a solid week out of my mani without any chips, which–for a very hands on mom of two boys–I rate as excellent wear time.

Notable is that the formula seems thin to me, compared to other brands I use.  This has no impact on performance, just something I detected!  I tried to use this formula with a nail stamp, and it was too watery for this purpose.

Milani Nail Lacquer is DBP, Toluene, and Formaldehyde Free. 

It’s also an affordable $4.49 per bottle!
