Milani Key West with Comparisons

 Milani Key West
(direct sunlight)

Hi everyone!! If you follow me on Facebook you may already know this, but I am super excited to tell you all that you can now find my blog at www.smashleysparkles.com!  I also have another exciting announcement coming soon, so keep an eye out for that...

Today I've got swatches of Milani Key West for you, as well as my first comparison post! I saw this polish on Let Them Have Polish, and fell in love.  I also like the name, since I lived in the Keys for several years and they hold a special place in my heart.  This color is a gorgeous glowy teal foil.  Once I got it home, I realized it was VERY similar to my Color Club Metamorphosis... and thus this comparison post was born! :)

First a few swatches of just Key West on its own.  (All swatches are 2 coats without top coat.)

Next the comparison photos!  I have the Color Club on my index and ring fingers, and Key West on my middle and pinky.  They are not EXACT dupes, but they are fairly close, especially in the sun.  Indoors and in the shade you can see the difference in finishes more (glass fleck vs foil).  Also, Metamorphosis has that hint of a pink duo-chrome to it.

Also, just for fun I added a comparison with China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise.  I knew this wasn't a dupe, but I just wanted to show you another teal next to these.  TUT is a neon, so it dries to a semi-matte finish.  Again, these swatches are 2 coats, with no top coat.

Thanks for looking, what do you think of these polishes?

Also, is there anything you would like to see more of on my blog?  Such as swatches, reviews, or comparisons?
