Milani High Speed Ikat-Inspired Print

 press sample 
This post has "High Speed" in the title for two reasons. First, I used three of the new Milani High Speed Fast Dry one coat formula polishes. And second, I did this mani at a high rate of speed. Like super fast. On purpose. I was going for an imperfect Ikat-like design. I painted one coat of Instant Pearl, then feverishly splotched away with Flaming Race, a coral-red creme, and Rapid Orchid, a vampy purple, with a not-so-small art brush.

I'm really happy with how it turned out. And the best part? It looks just as good on BOTH hands!

I showed you a swatch of Pink Express the other day. Overall, I'm impressed with the High Speed Fast Dry Milanis I've tried. If you're a perfectionist about polish application (like me), you won't be completely satisfied with a single coat and will want to go for two. But they're definitely "pass-able" at one coat and that's a real positive for me. Often I do nail art at night that isn't appropriate for the office in the morning - so I quickly slap on another polish before I head out the door. I've been reaching for these Milanis lately because I can get away with one coat and they do dry fast. They're not completely dry in 60 seconds...but dry enough to put a coat on and that's important! I also love their small, flat brush.

The Milani High Speed line currently comes in 14 colors and retails for $4.99 for a 13.2mL bottle. It's available at Walgreens, CVS, and Target and online at http://www.milanicosmetics.com.
