Milani Limited Edition Fantastical Plumage with Sprinkles Effect

PRESS SAMPLE
Yesterday, I showed you the amazing Milani LE Retro Glam Collection, and today I will show you the LE Fantastical Plumage (with Sprinkles Effect) Collection.  The Fantastical Plumage Collection is a mix of brighter colors that play off of feathers from birds.  Both collections will be available for the month of August.
I decided to do a manicure with the set using my dotting brushes.  My original intention was to do a french tip. That changed to a diagonal french tip, which then progressed to dots! It reminds me of bubbles.
Milani polishes are great for nail art, and these are no exception!
Scarlett Ibis is the orange of the family.  I used two coats, although it was very close to being a one coater!  My photo is off on the color, it is much more orange in real life.  I used Carnival on my two middle fingers.  More on that later.)
Canary was the problem child of the collection. I needed three coats and it applied streaky.  You can't tell though by the third coat!
Now, we are getting to my three favorites... Peacock is a lighter sky blue that applied well and evenly. I used two coats.
Purple Martin is a bright lavender.  While the first coat wasn't super opaque, the 2nd coat layered superbly and made me fall in love with it.
*Drum roll please*    My favorite of both collections is this in-your-face blurple aptly named Blue Jay!
This was a one coater on a few nails and was a dream to apply.
The glitter of the collection is called Carnival.  I did a skittle mani using all five of the polishes and then used Carnival over the top.  Carnival has large white hexes, medium sized black hexes and black bars.    Carnival needed some finessing to apply the glitters.  I used the dab method to apply the large white glitters and some of the bars.
  I applaud Milani for thinking outside the mainstream box and being one of the few companies to give a nod to the indie polishes lines.

This Limited Edition Fantastical Plumage Collection and the LE Retro Glam Collection will be available for the month of August at select CVS and Meijer stores across the USA.  You can also buy it online at www.Milanicosmetics.com
