Crimson Jewel

milani crimson jewel

milani crimson jewel-2

Crimson Jewel is pretty much Dorothy’s Ruby Slippers in a bottle. It’s a dark red with red glitter. I used 2-3 coats and it’s really one of the only polishes with some texture.

Whew, that was a lot. I’m not going to lie, when I swatched the first 8 I hated them. The ones I noted as thick were really thick and were pooling like crazy. It was my fault, I had to apply them differently. It’s better to apply thin coats with the creams. Once you put the second coat on it’s like magic… They transform to a beautiful, high quality lacquer with a brilliant shine. The formula is really amazing. And they all dry fast! I mean super fast drying, I don’t have any other polishes that dry this quickly.

I really didn’t care for most of the metallics because they looked streaky.

I’m highly impressed with the New Milani Color Statement Polishes ($3.99). They are $1 cheaper than the previous ones. They have been popping up in CVS’s near me for over a week now. These are a replacement for the current Milani polishes and the Gold Label polishes released last year. These are only available at CVS and

The only thing I wish is that the color selection was wider. I know they’ll probably be expanding the line later but I would love to see brighter colors and a few more toppers.

See any you want?
