I don’t think I’ve swatched a Milani nail polish on this blog (just blushes and lipstick), since all my Milani polishes are older. And, I can’t find their new polishes anywhere near me or online in Canada! ‘Tis a shame, because I was a fan of their nail polish shades back in the day.
Milani Cosmetics seemed to be a brand that was originally aimed at women of color, and as a result, many of their shades were highly pigmented and vibrant! As a lover of such colors, Milani was one of my favorite drugstore brands. I think they’ve branched out more since they’ve become more mainstream, but the vibrant shades remain—some of the lipstick and blush shades are hot, hot, hot!
They’re still a little hard for me to find in Canada—they’re sold online at Well.ca (no nail polish, though) and at Rexall drugstores. However, I don’t have many Rexalls near me and the one I do have boasts a small display with mainly lipsticks, limited blushes, and eye stuff.
Anyway, today’s Throwback Thursday polish is from at least 2008, as that’s the oldest review for it at MUA. I probably bought it off eBay around that time.
The bottles were slightly cheap-looking, but hey, they were inexpensive drugstore polishes.
Breezy (19) is a stunning, tropical blue metallic that leans a touch turquoise. Honestly, the color is drop dead gorgeous!
