New From Milani: Neon Fresh Teal

Above & Below: Milani's Fresh Teal is from their new 8 piece Neon line. The photo above is with an Ott light, while the photo below is with a flash. I tried every kind of lighting I could, and I was not able to get an accurate color of this polish. It is much closer to the bottle picture, a bright, vivid teal creme. For some reason, every photo showed more blue. This applied very well and dried to a high shine finish. They are priced at $4.29.
Milani is coming out with some fantastic lines right now! I picked up all of their new holos a couple of weeks ago, and I'm now starting to see their full-line wall displays. Included in this display are the holo's, lip glosses, eye shadows, nail art pens, and 8 shades simply called Neon. These look to be permanent additions to their existing nail polish line. I picked up just one of the neons, because I honestly thought they'd be like many other neons--streaky, difficult application, semi-matte finish--you all know what I mean. I was hoping they'd be like that so I wouldn't feel the need to have more than this one, but I'm happy to report (although my wallet is not!) that these are excellent! I used 2 coats and could easily have gotten away with one, had I been more diligent with my application. They dry quickly and are as shiny as any other creme polish that's not a neon. The finish is amazing, because not only is it shiny, but it almost looks like plastic. There are 8 shades in the Neons, including 2 orange tones, 1-yellow, 1-blue, 1-purple, 2-pinks and this teal shade. Just as the holo's didn't have a strong holo effect, this particular shade does not have a bright, glowing neon effect. It's vivid, don't get me wrong. But when I think of neons, I think of Massini's 'in your face' neons, or some of Color Clubs true neon shades. The other colors may be more neon-like, but I still am very impressed with this one. I guess I'll have to go pick up a few more and find out!

In other new drug store polishes, I'm still waiting to see the Maybelline pastels I've heard about, but I haven't located them yet. I did see a new display from L'Oreal Pro called Blooming Brights, but I passed on them...because they weren't new! I thought they looked familiar, and sure enough, they were the collection from last summer. So hopefully we'll be seeing something new from L'Oreal soon also.

  8. Ugh! I was out this evening,and stopped by the CVS,and Walgreens. And neither one had any of the new Milani polishes. I'll have to keep an eye out. I'm so curious to see these neons,and holos! I hate it when my camera won't pick up the polish color accurately...the photos look great anyway. Oh,and my pocket book feels your pocket book's pain....ouch...lol!

  9. That is a gorgeous color. Do you get your Milani at Meijer? In Chicago, I only see it at Walgreen's and Target, and they never have anything but the base collection (If that...). If Meijer has the special collections, it would certainly be worth a trip...
