Milani Textured Creams

Hey guys! Today for you, I have two of the new Milani Textured Creams I recently picked up from my local Walgreens. I picked out Aqua Splash and Yellow Mark. These polishes retailed for $3.99 and for such a small price tag compared to some other brands that are currently following the same trend of the gritty finish, they are a much cheaper option-not to mention the only ones that are neon colored!

First up, is the lovely Aqua Splash. A lovely aqua/teal color that has a seafoam green tint to it. It is a super pretty color. I only have one issue with this polish, and it may just be me being sucky at the application, but the 'grit' or 'sand' or whatever it is they use to give it texture, seems to show through a bit. I had to use three coats to get the majority of the 'grit' which looks white, to mostly be hidden. Perhaps it was because it is more sheer than the yellow one, but I still like none the less.  :)

Yellow Mark is an awesome lemon peel yellow. VERY pigmented and applied wonderfully. Honestly, one coat would have been enough, but out of habit, I did two. I really enjoyed this color. It is so fun, bright and screams HELLO WARMER WEATHER! Now if only the weather would actually warm up...


I think you can sort of see what i mean about the Aqua Splash looking some what whiteish in the coloring on the left...

After having seen swatches for the whole collection, I am really kicking myself for not grabbing the purple and red...I am going to have to fix that soon! I really do love these polishes though. They are very durable. No chipping or anything so far and I've done some scrubbing since doing this mani.

How do you feel about textured polishes? Yay? Nay? Meh? Let me know what you think in the comments! I'd love to hear from you!
