Milani Limited Edition Retro Glam Swatches and Review

by Lisa Heath

Press Sample

Milani is releasing 2 Limited Edition nail polish collections in the month of August.  I already showed Fantastical Plumage (click the link if you missed it!) and tonight I will be showing you the Retro Glam Collection!

Retro Glam consist of 5 creme polishes and a black and white glitter top coat!  I used the black and white glitter top coat on an accent nail in all of the photos so you can see it over each individual color.

Creamy Pistachio:


Creamy Pistachio is exactly what the name suggests!  A light green shade.  I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for this photo.

Mint Chip:


Mint Chip is a darker version of Creamy Pistachio.  This is a nice glossy green!  I used 2 coats and a top coat for this photo.

Almond Bliss:


Almond Bliss is a beautiful pale ivory shade.  I actually think this is a shade that is lacking in my collection, but definitely one that is nice to have.  I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat.

Strawberry Shake:


Milani named these shades well, because this one does remind me of the color of a strawberry shake!  This is a pale but vibrant shade of pink with a small touch of shimmer.  I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for this photo.

Raspberry Delight:


Raspberry Delight is a deeper pink creme polish.  I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat.



Sprinkles is the matte black and white glitter top coat of the collection.  Sprinkles contains small to medium black and white hex glitters and black bar glitter in a clear base.  Application was perfect for this!  No fishing around for shapes and a nice assortment on the nail!  I used 1 coat of Sprinkles for this photo!

This is another Milani collection with perfect application!  All 5 cremes are opaque in 2 coats and the glitter top coat spread on smoothly and easily.

My top picks?  Strawberry Shake, Creamy Pistachio and Raspberry Delight!

You will be able to find these at select CVS and Meijer stores during the month of August.

Retail Price – $5.99

As I stated at the beginning, this IS a Limited Edition Collection for the month of August, so grab them while you can!

Great swatches! I love this set…I think it’s my favorite (b/w the two new Milani sets). Sprinkles is so cute and applies like a dream!

Almond Bliss and Sprinkles are such a great combo together. Looks like something edible. Milani has done really well with the polishes, and you showcased them beautifully Lisa.
