Milani Nail Flash and Hot Metals

I stopped in CVS the other night to pick up my prescription for the shingles, and I took a cruise through the new displays. I found a great display of Milani’s, a collection called Nail Flash:

I picked up three of the four colors in this collection – I believe the one I didn’t get was red, and eh. (In the display you can see a rogue Hot Metal polish!)

In a Flash:

In a Flash is a bright, glittery pink.

Hot Flash:

Hot Flash is a gorgeous glittery red with brown undertones. I’d say the brown/red is more of a flash than a duochrome.

Flash Light:

Flash Light is a glittery, pinky orange. I love it!

This one is called Hot Metal, from the Hot Metals Collection:

Hot Metal is a gorgeous glittery purple/pink. Very flashy, very summer! I didn’t really want the others in the collection, but I definitely wanted this one!

I had no application issues with any of these polishes. They were good in two coats!

All of these were $4.49 at CVS. Have you seen these two collections? What do you think?

    Sigh. I won’t be back in the US till fall and these would be gone by then. 🙁 Sigh.

    I picked up one of the Milanis in the green color– the color inside is totally teal– nothing like the wrap on the bottle! Does that happen often?

    My girlfriend Linda picked them up last week for me. She found the new Metal collection also. For once CVS has everything in. Glad to see them swatched. I did wear one of the new Metal collection. I forget what the name of the gold was but it was gorgeous. I had to chop off three nails yesterday. Very annoying. At least they were on the same hand! The Flash collection is really pretty. Your nails are getting long and really look pretty.
