Milani Texture Nail Lacquer!

It seems like Texture Week at Pretty in Paint! Today I have Milani Texture Creams for you! There are 6 vibrant shades, with a matte textured look. The textured look has been a trend with many major companies lately: OPI, Zoya, Milani, Nails Inc and others, each with their own spin on it.


Yellow Mark
Coat 1:
Coat 2:

Yellow Mark is a bright yellow textured cream. The texture appears a lot thicker after the second coat, but the formula was easily to apply, smooth (minus the texture obviously) and opaque in 2 coats. Yellow Mark is one of my least favorite out of the polishes, I'm not sure how I like the textured look in a yellow.

Tainted in Red
Coat 1:

 Tainted in Red is a red-orange texture cream. I only used 1 coat for the above pictures, and I like how the texture is not as bulky as with Yellow Mark. I like the textured look with Tainted in Red and the formula was opaque after only 1 coat.

 Spoiled in Fuchsia
 Coat 1:
 Coat 2:

Spoiled in Fuchsia is a bright pink. I don't really see the purple in this polish, but I think is a gorgeous color and I don't mind the texture in it either! I used 2 coats for full coverage. This polish is a perfect bright spring or summer color!

Purple Streak
Coat 1:
 Coat 2:

Purple Streak is a deep purple texture cream. I used 2 coats for full coverage, the first coat was slightly streaky, but the second coat covered evenly and opaquely. I like the texture with a darker color, it looks very different from some of the brighter colors.


Aqua Splash
Coat 1:
 Coat 2:

Aqua Splash is a bright aqua texture cream. Aqua is my favorite color so I am always a little biased when it comes to aqua polishes, and I like this one too!  Aqua Splash is not as opaque as the other polishes, but I like how 2 coats looks. The texture was not as bulky and seems more delicate than some of the other polishes.

Shady Gray
Coat 1:
 Coat 2:
  
 Shady Gray is a dark gray texture creme. I used 2 coats for full coverage. Although the texture look is a bit bulkier, I like the matte texture look of this gray. It seems slightly grungy and provides a different feel than the other polishes.

Overall, Milani's Texture Creams have an easy to apply formula that dries quickly and a range of shades that allows you different looks! These texture creams are different from the sparklier, shimmery textures out there and I kind of like it! I don't think textured polish will be a new staple in my nail polish collection, but definitely a way to spice up a regular mani on occassion!
