Today I have a review of the new Retro Glam Collection from Milani Cosmetics that will be hitting stores this August. I am absolutely in love with these polishes, and am always excited to feature a brand that is fabulous and affordable here on Adventures in Polishland. Let me show you these sweet polishes!

First up is Strawberry Shake, a baby pink polish with a hint of shimmer. As with all of these polishes, Strawberry Shake is opaque in two coats and has a great formula. I suggest letting each coat dry completely to avoid dragging the polish. With that tip in mind, you will get a gorgeous, high-gloss finish. I love how cute Strawberry Shortcake is!

IMG_2286 IMG_2290Up next is Raspberry Delight, a bright pink polish. I love how pigmented this polish is, as the color is perfect for summer. Raspberry Delight is just shy of being a neon polish, so it’s great for the office as well as the summer sun. I also love that I don’t need a top coat to get a glossy finish!

IMG_2293 IMG_2295Creamy Pistachio is the next in the collection, and is a dusty mint green polish. Mint green is my all-time favorite polish color, and Creamy Pistachio doesn’t disappoint! I love that this polish is still pigmented without being too bright. Plus, it has the great Milani formula that I have come to expect.

IMG_2299 IMG_2303Next up is Mint Chip, a darker green polish. Not only is mint chocolate chip my favorite ice cream, but Mint Chip is a gorgeous nail polish! The color is stunning, and great for those who want to give green nails a first try. Mint Chip is also the perfect year-round nail color.

IMG_2305 IMG_2307Almond Bliss is the final colored polish, and is an off-white, cream color.  It is a gorgeous neutral shade that is work appropriate yet trendy at the same time. Almond Bliss is also a great base for nail art, as it is nice with many different colors.

Last but not least is Sprinkles, a black and white glitter polish with grains, bars, and hexagons in a variety of sizes. I layered one coat of Sprinkles over each of the polishes in this collection, and I am loving the result! Sprinkles applies quite well — no fishing for glitters needed. I topped this with a top coat to even the layers, and I’m good to go! These polishes look amazing together, and I’ll be wearing this manicure for the next few days at least.

All in all, the Retro Glam Collection from Milani Cosmetics is a complete win for me! It will be released during August, and is a limited edition collection. To purchase, visit your local CVS or Meijer store, or shop on Milani’s website HERE. Also, stay tuned for a review of the complete Fantastical Plumage Collection later this week!

    Looks like the Connect the Dots look is coming back… but something about these color combos is awesome! Great swatches!
