Milani Color Statement Nail Polish Review & Swatches

Pink Beige, Spotlight White, Imperial Purple (left to right)

Pink Beige:
This nail polish went on somewhat sheer upon first coat. You could get away with just two coats of polish, but I really feel that this polish benefits a lot from a third coat.
Spotlight White:
This color went on pretty streak with the first coat, as have pretty much all other whites I have ever tried. However, with a second coat, it looked fine but I think it benefits from a third coat.
Imperial Purple:
This polish went on really nicely and was opaque and ready to go after just two basic coats!

This polish actually dries in a good amount of time as well. I waited about three minutes between coats and they turned out great. I always like to seal my nails up with some Seche Vite though.

The following wear test with no base coat and Seche Vite Top Coat. 

Perhaps you may be aware that I have recently moved in with my fiance Justin and we have purchased this home together (you can watch our adventuresome lives on my vlog channel)! It was a foreclosure and we have been fixing it up like crazy for the past couple of months. During this time, I have done SO much cleaning. This above picture shows my nails after a day of cleaning and working on the house. Not too bad, if you ask me, but if you have a job where you clean and work with your hands all day, this polish is not going to cut it for you. 

When I first purchased these polishes, they applied really well and were a great consistency. However, within just a couple of weeks, these polishes began to get thick and difficult to work with in consistency. I'm unsure if the polishes are just old (they were on clearance at Walmart), but it's strange to me that they behaved well at first but within a short amount of time, have gotten significantly worse.

The wear time if strange to me. They show a bit of wear on the tips after just the first day, however, they do not get progressively worse every single day. It's almost like the polish retracts away from the tips of the nails as it dries, leaving the very edges exposed and vulnerable to chipping later on. They get that initial little bit of wear and stay like that a couple of days before they start to really chip away. I was not impressed with the wear time on these little polishes. I feel like these issues may be attributed to them being old since it looks like they are being discontinued, that is what I'm thinking the case is. 

Have you tried these? What do you think?
Thanks for reading!
