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!

Talia Joy Castellano and Milani Mint Candy Manicure

Talia Joy Castellano

Talia Joy Castellano was a thirteen year old  makeup guru who was such an inspiration to everyone who watched her over 150 viral YouTube videos. It is with such sadness that I write that she passed away this past Tuesday, July 16th, after trying to battle two different types of cancer, Neuroblastoma and pre-leukemia.

Talia Joy and Makeup

Talia Joy had a goal to have makeup tutorials to show everyone that  people who have cancer are still beautiful and that makeup could “serve as a  wig to feel comfortable.”

Last fall, Ellen DeGeneres had Talia Joy on her talk show. Here’s a nice photo from her time on the show:

One of the questions Ellen asked Talia Joy was how she managed to be so positive while going through cancer treatments. Talia remembered Ellen’s character, Dory, in Finding Nemo, and said,  “A little fishy told me, ‘Just keep swimming.'”

Talia Joy Castellano posted one last Instagram picture, sadly just four days before she passed, and it was of a mint green manicure. So, in honor of Talia, I join everyone in adding my Milani Nail Lacquer Mint Candy manicure.

Here’s the first Milani Nail Lacquer: Mint Candy

Milani Nail Lacquer


I used two coats of this creme polish, and did not add a top coat. I’m just amazed at how shiny and beautiful Milani Nail Lacquers are without any top coat added.

I then added two coats of the Milani Jewel FX Nail Lacquer in Teal:

Milani Nail Lacquer

Milani formulated this chunky glitter to, “give the impression of the finest jewels adorning your nails. Multi-colored glitter sparkles like gems.”

Thoughts About the Milani Nail Lacquers:

I love the large and small glitters, and while I could have done my nails with one coat, I love glitter, so I added a second coat. How many coats you choose will obviously depending on the level of sparkling you want. Once again, I have no top coat on! The only con I could find is that some may not like the feel of the large glitter on their nails. Of course, that problem can be easily solved by adding a top coat. Just for record, I like to see what polish looks like for those who either don’t want to, or don’t have time to add a top coat. 

Here are the two Milani Nail Lacquers, with two coats of polish on each nail, no top coat: Mint Candy and Teal.

Milani Nail Lacquer, Sail Away, is a navy, denim shade, with shimmers of silver. I used two coats of polish, and on one of my nails, as an experiment, I used a top coat.

I thought I would show you just how beautiful the Milani Nail Lacquer is on it’s own, without any top coat added. Can you tell which one nail has a top coat on it?  Milani Nail Lacquer

The photo below was taken with a flash:

So, do you have any idea which one nail has a top coat applied? It’s…

Milani Nail Lacquers: Chocolate Sprinkles & Dark Coffee

Milani Nail Lacquers!

Today is a review of two Milani Nail Lacquers that were sent for review: Chocolate Sprinkles and Dark Coffee. Milani Nail Lacquers are of course cruelty free, and do not contain: Formaldehyde; DBP: Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), to prevent chips and cracks; Toluene, a solvent that makes the polish easy to apply, but is also used as an industrial solvent for the manufacturing of paints, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and rubber.

Dark Coffee and Chocolate Sprinkles are two nail lacquers from the Spring Collection of 2012.

Milani Nail Lacquers

Since the colors remind me of the fall, I decided to pair them with one of the pumpkins from my father’s garden. He’s been trying to grow them for his grandchildren. My children love to watch them grow; and then, if the deer and other animals don’t get to them first– pick out their pumpkins!

The first nail lacquer color to show you is Chocolate Sprinkles:

Just look at this gorgeous color!! It’s so shiny, and I do not even have a top coat on my nail! The chocolate brown color polish has gold, bronze and red shimmer.

Next color to show you is the Milani Nail Lacquer in the color Dark Coffee:  

Milani Nail LacquersDark Coffee is a creme, and once again, to show how shiny and beautiful this color is on it’s own, I do not have a top coat on my nail! Such a beautiful, rich color.

Here are the two colors in another photo:

Thoughts About the Milani Nail Lacquers:

I just love that there is a beautiful glossy finish to both the Dark Coffee and Chocolate Sprinkles, and therefore, to show that, I did not use a top coat in the photos. I applied two coats of polish, and I did not have any streaking. The nail polish was quick to dry, and there’s nothing I didn’t love about both colors. In fact, given that the polishes list for $4.49, I would write that it’s a bargain price!
