Milani asks, would you rather wait an hour for your nails to dry, or just wait 60 seconds?
The drugstore brand’s new line of One Coat High Speed Fast Dry Nail Lacquers ($4.99 each) promises to save lacquer lovers time and money with eight rich, quick-drying colors and a creamy formula built to look beautiful after a single coat.
And that’s just I’m wearing in each of these swatches — one creamy coat.
Hot Pink Frenzy
White On the Spot
I’m still testing these for durability and wear time, but based on these swatches, hello! Gotta love how much pigment Milani squeezed into some of these colors, like Jiffy Orange, Fast Fuchsia, Violet Dash, Hot Pink Frenzy, Rapid Cherry and Black Swift. Full coverage from a single coat.
I think Yellow Whiz and White On The Spot would probably benefit from a second coat. Those two might be the troublemakers in the group and seem to apply a little streaky…
Milani also gave these bottles a nice, wide brush that covers a large area of each nail, so it only takes a few swipes from nail base to tip. Another thing that helps speed up the painting process.
As for drying time, they’re quick. I’ll give ’em that. To be on the safe side, though, I’d suggest waiting 3-5 minutes for them to set. I checked to see how they were doing after 60 seconds, and all of them still felt a bit unsettled. I think they needed a tad more time.
Still pretty good. I can see these coming in handy for last-minute manis and pedis when I’m in a hurry to leave the house. Great colors and a quick formula; plus the price is totally right?
Nice job, Milani.

A battle of epic proportions
It really was! Are you watching The Voice? Last night’s battle rounds blew me away. That one between Anthony Evans and Jesse Campbell was epic. EPIC!
I was kinda hoping that Anthony would get the win, but wow. Even Alicia was impressed.
