Megan Miller Collection - Roja Swatches and Review

The Megan Miller Collections is a relatively new line of boutique nail polishes that are environmentally-friendly, 3-Free (free of DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde) and Cruelty-Free. They offer a wide range of colors which can be seen here.

Today I am showing you Megan Miller Roja. It seems appropriate since I've been called Roja off and on since moving to Texas. Roja is Spanish for red, which just so happens to be the color of my hair. Thankfully, my hair is not THIS particular shade of red.

As you can see, the bottle design is unique and pretty darned cute. But it's more than that. It holds a full .5 ounces of polish, has a great cork cap, which naturally provides a non-slip grip and has a little hand-tied raffia bow. The brush is round and cut well and the stem is short enough that it doesn't collect too much polish. It holds the perfect amount of polish for each nail.

Megan Miller's logo is a peacock feather, as shown on the bottle and the top of the cap. Here's their story behind their logo:

Inspired by the display the peacock portrays when its feathers are in full bloom, the Megan Miller collection aims to inspire you to show your grandest side with confidence and ease. Like the peacock, we look to blend a natural elegance in order to make you look good, feel complete and ‘Be Colorful’. 





The formula of Roja is smooth, flows well and application was easy. Roja is a medium, cool red creme and dries to a shiny finish. I used two coats and on most people that will provide full opacity. I have pretty thick nails and would take 3 coats to achieve full opacity. I had no issues.

All photos are shown with two coats of color and I used Cult Nails base and top coat.

I wore it on my errands today and got compliments from the USPS Clerk and the Chanel Sales Associate!

For more information, you can visit Megan Miller's site. The polishes will be available online and at Anthropologie. You can follow them on their Facebook page for availability, updates, new collections, etc. Retail is $12.00 for .5 ounces.

Based on this bottle of Roja, I WILL be trying more colors. What do you think? Have you tried them?
