Milani Cosmectics has revamped their core collection with the new Milani Cosmetics Color Statement line. I will say, as a whole: this collection is fantastic. The vast majority of the polishes are two-coaters with an easy-to-apply formula plus Milani’s quick-dry top coat is top notch. I used a coat of Milani’s top coat over all my swatches…it’s such a great product that this may replace my bottle of China Glaze Fast Forward as my swatching top coat.

Swatching this collection took me 6 sittings and a tiny nervous breakdown. I had a very stressful first week of August and had to take a little time-out from polish to recover, even though I was already halfway through. I was so happy to reach the end that I texted Aprill to announce that I was finally at the last polish of the collection!
