Of all the places I’ve traveled, Italy is definitely my favorite. The landscapes of Tuscany, the history of Rome, the unique charm and food of Venice, I could go on an on. All of those memories come flooding back as I play with the new Milani Fierce Foil Nail Lacquer collection that is named after Italian locales, three of which I’ve visited. I can never have enough foils in my life and these flecked nail polish colors are so me.
Formula & Application
Milani Color Statement Nail Lacquer is 3-Free (Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP). It comes in a hefty, round glass bottle topped with a round, chrome finish cap. They look like the big sisters of the old Nails Inc bottles. The brush is long, flat and of average width. The bristles are dense yet flexible and easy to control.
The consistency of the polishes feels thick yet it spreads out on the nail like warm butter. And even though it is suspending so much glitter, the pigmentation is on point. The self-leveling formula is opaque in two coats, with the exception of Sardina.
Milani Fierce Foil Capri is a strawberry shake pink metallic shimmer with warm gold foil flecks.
Milani Fierce Foil Florence is a warm olive with yellow gold shimmer and bronze-y metallic flecks. It can look a little muted if the light isn’t hitting it, as you can see near the tips of my nails.
Milani Fierce Foil Milan is a light bronze metallic. This is the best representative of a foil finish in the collection and it is SO reflective. I mean, to the point that it’s don’t-wear-while-driving distracting.
Milani Fierce Foil Rome is a sweet, mid-tone violet shimmer with crystal and gold foil flecks. It’s the least sparkly of the bunch.
Milani Fierce Foil Sardinia is an interesting mix of crystal clear, gold and silver flecks in a sheer icy base. It’s best used as a top coat and, as you can see below, the crystal pieces reflect different colors depending on what’s underneath.
Milani Fierce Foil Venice is an electric blue with light blue shimmer with hot pink flecks. The color is really intense and the flecks save it from looking too frosty.
Bottom Line: The foil finish adds depth to these super saturated colors and you can’t beat the price. Milan and Venice are my favorites and Sardinia is a great topper but really, you can’t go wrong with any of them. I highly recommend scooping up as many of these polishes as you can find.
