Milani High Speed Fast Dry polishes have some new shades this season. Woo hoo! I received a few of them to review so of course I’m sharin’ them with you lovely people.
Hereeeee we go!
Flaming Race is a red coral creme and ohmigoodness, I ADORE this color. My camera is making it look mostly red but ignore that. It is a true and wonderful coral. I can’t stop staring at my nails when I wear this.
Pink Express is a light pink cream and you know how I feel about those. Once you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all. Blah.
Move on Mauve looks all plain in the bottle but this this mauve pearl has a beautiful undertone to it. If you look closely, you can spot subtle magenta shimmer. This is the kind of shade that was on its way to being all Granda-y but it made a fierce comeback.
Rapid Orchid is a deep and vampy purple that looks black on the nails.
Quick Teal is a gorgeous teal and of course I’m having issues capturing its awesomeness. You HAVE to wear a base coat when wearing this nail polish. If you don’t, you will definitely endure blue stained fingernails.
Instant Pearl is an off white pearl. It’s nice. It’s a great wedding shade for the bride with a little bit of spark.

Well, well, well…I can’t say these polishes are my favorite Milani product. For one, the formula on them kinda suck. They were all on the thick and goopy side. It made application difficult, especially when going for a second or third coat. And they really don’t try fast. I mean, at all. My nails were still wet after a good 10-12 minutes of polishing. It’s a shame because I think the color ranges are great but the formula could definitely use some work. Ah well. I’ve still been rockin’ Flaming Race for 3 days now. They aren’t exactly 1-coaters either. I had to apply at least two coats for each polish to get an opaque finish.
