Milani Glitters!

Today I have for you select shades from Milani's glitter lines: One Coat Glitter and Jewel Fx.  My sample bottles are missing the line names, but the ones sold in stores are labeled accordingly.

First up I have the One Coat Glitters.

Twinkle, 1 coat layered over a light yellow: composed of small blue and fine violet glitter.  Twinkle is supposed to be a One Coat Glitter but as you can see it isn't opaque enough in one coat.  I personally would use this as a layering glitter.  Doesn't it look nice over yellow?

Lavender Fizz, 1 coat over pink: made of fine and small lavender glitter.  The formula on this one wasn't opaque in one coat either.  This was the first One Coat I swatched.  Of course I tried to wear it on it's own, but it wasn't very opaque at 2-3 coats, so I reswatched it over this pink.

Verdict:  While the colors for these One Coat Glitters were lovely, I was disappointed that they weren't opaque in one coat as claimed.  They didn't look promising at two either.  If you aren't looking to wear these alone, they do make nice layering glitters.

Next up are a few of the new Jewel Fx shades.

Lavender, 1 coat over Orchidia: composed of medium lavender and fine purple glitter. 

Fuchsia, 1 coat over Teddy Brown: medium and fine fuchsia glitter.  My pictures are a bit off.  This is the same color of glitter present in Revlon's Facets of Fuchsia and Deborah Lippman's Bad Romance.

Hot Pink, 1 coat over Signature Gold: mix of medium pink and holographic glitter.  I wouldn't say the glitter is exactly hot pink.  It's more of a bright jewel toned pink.  This layering combination makes me think of traditional Indian sari.

Teal, 1 coat over Sail Away: medium and fine blue glitter mixed with medium green and silver glitter.  My favorite of the bunch.  The shade picture is a more accurate depiction of how Teal looks.  The green glitter is a gorgeous lime green and the blue glitters are a lovely shade of bright blue.  Don't you just love this Teal + Sail Away combo?

Verdict:  Gorgeous new additions to the Jewel Fx line with unique colors like Hot Pink and Teal.  If you're into layering, it's worth checking these out.  They're all made of great quality glitters that lie flat on the nail bed.  For layering purposes, one coat will give you enough coverage.

You can find these Milani glitters at Walgreens and CVS for $4.99 each.  You can also order them online at
