Ever Since I Started Wearing These Milani Gold Label Nail Lacquers, Spring Fever Has Been Spreading From My Fingers to My Toes

Milani Gold Label spring 2014

The new $4.69 Milani Gold Label spring 2014 nail polishes


  • 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.

Cat lady says what now?


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.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. I can’t believe it was in the 70s here today. It sure didn’t feel like mid-January. Of course, I only got outside for a minute (Tabs never gives me any time off), during which time I daydreamed about playing hooky and shooting pics of cherry blossoms with my camera.

How’s it going out yonder way? What were you up to today?

  2. Unlike the lipsticks in the line, majority of these polishes definitely scream spring!

    I was just finishing editing my NAKED3 review for YouTube today, which I ended up uploading to my channel today!

    Definitely some springy colors (though the pink and strawberry are very similar). I can’t believe it was 70 degrees – what a nice break in mid-winter. Happy Friday!

    These look like they have such great coverage for pastel/creamy colours! I love the violet one and the periwinkle on, but it’s a very pretty collection overall!
