Mysterious Milani Glitters

I'm working on a display post, which I hope to get up on Monday, but here's something else I've seen recently:





Those are some new-to-me Milani One Coat and Jewel FX glitters I found at a Meijer store a couple days ago, not in a display on an endcap but stuffed into random slots in the core display. I've never heard of any of these. Left to right: Twinkle, Pink Flare, Hot Pink, Lavender. Twinkle is bright blue and bright purple. Pink Flare reminds me of OPI Teenage Dream but with much smaller holo hexes. Hot Pink is fuchsia and silver holo hexes. Lavender is lilac hexes with small purple glitters.

Today I went to a different Meijer and didn't find any of the first four glitters but did find a Jewel FX called Fuchsia. Here it is under my desk lamp at work:



Where did these come from? How many more are there? I wish I knew.

Addendum, 09-Jan-2012: thanks ABOP/laquerlove, the lovely lady from Another Bottle of Polish?!, I now know more about these glitters. Here's a photo she snapped in her Sears store (used with her permission):



Evidently what we're looking at are expansions of the Jewel FX and One Coat Glitter lines. The new Jewel FX colors are Fuchsia, Lavender, Teal (need it), Hot Pink, and Red (also need it). Not sure of the names of the One Coat Glitters, but it looks like a wine, a teal, Twinkle (the blue), a lilac, and Pink Flare. I am hoping these all show up at Meijer soon, which I think they might since they are clearancing some of the non-glitter ones.

  8. The only new display I saw (on Steph's Closet) is this http://www.stephscloset.com/blog/gallery/id/6087/milani-texture-nail-polish-display/ but the 3 One-coat glitters there are old. There must be a few more displays for the colours you found

  11. You guys get all the extra good stuff! Arizona gets stuff late and then it's a subset of what you show us is in Detroit. Oh, thank you for showing us what you find in the stores, I like seeing it.

  25. Hi. I am passing the Versatile Blogger Award on to you, the rules are on my page. But if you already have it, let it be just the way to say that I like your blog very much :).

  26. Maybe it's a Valentine's-type collection? The pink/purple theme of the colors suggests that to me. Perhaps some non-polish-savvy Meijer employee just wanted them out of the stockroom and stuffed them in the permanent slots.
