BlogForBunnies: Nail Art with Milani Nail Polish

BlogForBunnies

BlogForBunnies and BeCrueltyFree will hopefully be trending hashtags this week! I want to live in a world where no animal has to suffer and die for the sake of cosmetics.  The goal seems simple enough, but sadly, it is not so easy! Yes, there has been progress – we now have a full test and sales ban across the European Union, Norway, India, Sao Paulo, Brazil, and Israel. There is  legislation being considered in Australia, Brazil, New Zealand, Taiwan and here in the United States of America.  There has even been a little bit of progress in China, where mandatory animal testing was removed for domestically-produced cosmetics.

Milani Coming Up Roses: Thoughts

The Warm Petal Blush has a little bit of shimmer, which is nice.  The Warm Petals is just as advertised. It is a silky-soft powder and it applied very nicely onto my cheeks.  I found that it was very pigmented–although you can wear it more sheer depending on your preference. I applied the Warm Petals blush early in the morning, and it stayed put for at least eight hours.

With this color, it would be excellent for contouring or for a bronzer, in addition, to simply being used as a blush.

Loved that this brown blush had a little shimmer in it and that the formula is terrific; and, again, you can’t beat that price of $6.49 for .60 ounces!

Milani Nail Lacquer Fantastical Plumage Review & Photos

Milani has launched two new limited edition nail polish collections, and in yesterday’s post I featured one: Retro Glam.   Today is the second limited edition collection: the Milani Nail Lacquer Fantastical Plumage. Both collections will be available at some CVS and Meijer stores during the month of August. If you can’t find them in the stores, both limited edition collections will be available in August online at Milani Cosmetics.

Thoughts on Milani Nail Lacquer Fantastical Plumage

This is a beautiful collection with all photos showing two coats of polish on my nails and topped with Carnival.  I’m not sure if it was my lack of experience, but unlike Sprinkles, from the Retro Glam Collection, Carnival wasn’t as easy to work with. I had to really work to get a good mixture on my nails, and quite often it was a bit of a challenge to get a nice selection without it coming out looking like a blob.  I would recommend Sprinkles instead of buying Carnival.

All the colors in the Fantastical Plumage Collection are very pigmented and easy to work with; and I found they dried quickly between coats. Amazing nail lacquer and so reasonably priced at $5.99. However, remember, Fantastical Plumage is a Limited Edition, so don’t wait too long to purchase!
