Milani: Pure Love LE Collection Nail Polishes Review & Swatches + OPI Metallic For Life Dupe!!

Good morning, lovelies! 
It's such a beautiful day here in the Bay. It's been cold and rainy for a while, so I'm glad to see some sun and a soft, warm breeze. 

 Today, I have the new Limited Edition Pure Love Collection nail polishes from Milani. This collection consists of 3 new nail polishes and 1 eye shadow trio.  

Wedding Dress
A silvery, white infused with teenie, tiny magenta and green micro shimmers. This has an interesting finish and leans foil/pearl/metallic. This is so, so much more beautiful in person. This was 2 easy coats. 

Brides Maid
A champagne foil infused with silver and copper micro shimmers. I'm not sure, but this reminds me of my beloved Rage from Orly, which I cannot find for some strange reason. -_- This was 2 coats.

Bonus Shot

Gray Tux
Ooh la la! A sheer, black base with a combination of silver glitters and small & medium hex glitters. The above image was 2 coats. 

If this looks familiar to you, you're probably thinking of OPI Metallic For Life from the Nicki Minaj Collection. See comparison below!

Index & Ring: Milani 
Middle & Pinky: OPI

IMO, I prefer Milani for the simple fact that the glitter are much more packed and plentiful than OPI's. Both, however; require 3 coats for complete opacity. 
Gray Tux & Brides Maid

-Good formula
-Smooth application
-Average dry time
-OPI Metallic For Life dupe, if not better! + cheaper
-Polish colors go hand-in-hand with the name of the collection
(It bothers me when nail polishes have no relation to the collection)

- Exclusively available at select Walgreens  
- Limited Edition 

Pure Love should already be in stores(April), so be on the look out if you're interested! 

As always, hope this helps & happy shopping!
