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.
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.)
