The New Version: Milani Red Sparkle?
In the midst of all the new and exciting products launching this year, I stumbled upon an interesting find from Milani's Texture Display at Meijer this past week. Sure, it might look like your usual collection of already permanent colors (with the exception of Red Jewels FX). But upon further inspection, I spotted a new version of Red Sparkle that's quite different!
Just a quick note before we move on to swatches. I can't confirm if this is actually a "new version" or just a big manufacture OOOPS, which I've seen happen in the past (ahem, Milani's High Speed Collection).
Let's check out Red Sparkle!
Red Sparkle - is a red glitter in a clear base with tiny gold pieces of hexagon glitter. The consistency is heavier and chunky, much like Color Club's Mistletoe Collection. And it's definitely not a one coater; three coats for full coverage leaving just a few splotchy areas on the nail.
Of course, I wouldn't forget a comparison! There are two main differences here. The new version has large, chunky glitter - not as dense as the original, and it also has a punch of gold hexagon glitter.
Overall - Even though I like the added touch of gold hexagon glitter, I actually prefer the old version better, because, in my opinion, the new version goes against the grain of their nearly "one coat" formula.
Which Red Sparkle do you like? Have you seen this version is stores yet? Milani has a lot of new additions coming to the Jewel FX and One Coat Glitter line, keep a look out!

I like the way both of these look, but I was disappointed to hear that the "new" version took so many coats. That being said, I like the 2-colour look - it's interesting and different.
