- I am wearing a tabby t-shirt covered in cat hair (without a sweater for the first time in months)
- I have glitter all over my hands
- My hair is up in a scrunchie
- The windows are open, and there’s a nice breeze blowing through my office
There’s only one thing that could make this moment better… Oh, look at that! There it is. 🙂 The 12 new Milani Gold Label nail polishes.
This all seems too good to be true…
Wait — maybe I’m dreaming. Karen, wake up! Get up, get up, get up!
Nope, I guess not. I guess this is real, and look — it’s even 70-something degrees outside.
It’s gotta be these new $4.69 Gold Label polishes (part of a new Milani line). The springy, cheerful colors — six creams and six glitters in playful pinks, purples, greens, blues and corals — must be contagious. Seeing them on my paws, I almost forget it’s still winter and that tomorrow isn’t the day of the big Easter egg hunt.
Like the polishes in Milani’s regular Nail Lacquer line, these new USA-made Gold Label lacquers are DBP-, toluene- and formaldehyde-free.
They also have a mightier brush, or rather, a flatter brush that I think makes them a little easier to use. Maybe that’s why they cost a tad more ($4.69 each versus $4.49).
I’m not sure yet about the formula — if it’s different than Milani’s regular polish formula — because I haven’t had enough time with them yet, but I’ll know more by tomorrow. I’ll let you know what I find out.
They definitely do seem thick (think Essie) and smooth, and the flat brush is great. Makes it easy to paint nice, crisp edges along the bottom of my nails.
I do notice that I have to be careful about unloading the brush before applying to make sure I don’t lay down too much polish. They are quite thick.
Here’s a quick look at the 12 shades coming next month. Oh! In each of these pics, I’m wearing two layers.
