Dupe Alert!! Milani Gray Tux Nail Lacquer VS OPI Metallic 4 Life Nail Polish!

My friend Tracy and I were at our respective homes, swatching polishes and sending pictures via text and Tracy issued a DUPE ALERT!!! She told me that the new Milani Gray Tux Nail Lacquer from the Pure Love Collection was an exact dupe for OPI Metallic 4 Life from the Nicki Minaj for OPI Collection. Check my pictures and see if you agree. OPI Metallic 4 Life and Milani Gray Tux

These are in super macro and macro settings. To the naked eye, the two are exactly the same. They have the same amount of grittiness on top of a dried nail. They have the same small and hex silver glitters. The Milani might be considered a smidge darker in the black base, but I think these are so so sooooooooooo close that Tracy is right in calling these dupes. (That little bit of red reflection you see is my red camera. Never buy a red camera just because you think it's cute.)


  1. I would have to agree that these are dupes. This is a very pretty color.

  2. They do seem like a dupes. Great comparison!

  3. Is the milani new? I've never heard of or seen gray tux.

    1. It's new. Part of the Pure Love Collection, available now at Walgreens. I posted about it directly below this post. You can view the info here:

  4. i actually like the milani better because it's darker. it just looks better. thanks for the dupe alert!

  5. I think we have the same camera. I agree about the red reflection getting in the way of photographing colours accurately.
