Milani Swatch and Review Part 2: High Speed Fast Dry

Here is Part 2 of the Milani for 2014 swatches, featuring the High Speed Fast Dry trio. In case you missed Part 1, you can read it here.

Three new shades have been added for 2014 and I just can't decide which one is my favorite!

First up is Aqua Crush, a beautifully pigmented turquoise cream polish. The above is with two thin coats.

I found using one coat alone to be a little on the streaky side, so I used a second to even it out. You could probably get away with one thick coat, but it was easier to work with when using thin layers. 

Sangria Rush is a mulberry cream that borders on oxblood. The above is with just one coat.

However, as you can see, this will stain your cuticles, so be very careful when applying. Even more so when removing!

Blue Zoom is a royal blue cream polish and as sharp a shade as its name implies. The above is with two coats.

This shade is just so highly pigmented and shows up even better in person. I just adore it.

Overall, I thought these three additions to the High Speed Fast Dry line by Milani were total winners. All three had such vivid color and dried relatively fast compared to the regular Milani line, as well as other brands.

These new Milani shades for 2014 are currently available for $3.99 at CVS and
Do you agree that this collection is a trio of hits?
