Milani Cosmetics Color Statement 2014 Nail Collection Swatches And Review


Disclosure: Contains Press samples

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!

Milani Cosmetics Color Statement Nail Collection Retails for $3.99 each. Pick these up at, CVS, Target, and Walgreens.

Thanks for making it through this massive post with me! This collection really has something for everyone. Does it have anything you’re interested in? Let us know!

    I have to admit I am a bit underwhelmed by this collection. It just doesn’t seem to have the creativity of previous Milani offerings. Hope they spice it up along the way.


    1. PolishPanic!

      I want all of the cremes and jellies because I love the colors, but I do have to admit that I kinda agree with you in saying that nothing really stands out. These are great swatches though!
