Wedding Mani Guest Post: Tara from Polishy of Truth

Tara from Polishy of Truth has one of the funniest blogs I read regularly.  Somehow she makes the polish process just hilarious.  Today is no exception.  I wasn't into the Milani Brides Maid Collection at all until I saw this, but now am bummed myself I can't partake because I have the OPI dupe.  Keep reading to understand what I'm talking about.

Hello lovely readers!  Thank you so much to Amanda for allowing me to guest post once again!  Today, for my wedding themed look, I would like to show you one from Milani's recent, limited-edition "Pure Love" collection.  This one is called Brides Maid, and it is a lovely beige foil with amazing silver and copper flecks!  If you are thinking it looks familiar...it IS.  It happens to be an exact dupe of OPI's Designer...De Better! from the 2011 Muppets holiday collection!  I cannot decide if this excites me or bums me out.  On the one hand, it is half the price of DDB and also DDB is gone now, but on the other hand...I know companies dupe each other all the time but this one is SO unique it is sort of a bummer to see it again? Or IS it?!?! See I am indecisive!

Outside, no flash.

Indoors, no flash. Blurry but, shows an accurate representation of the shade indoors.
One thing I can say for sure is this is just as amazing.  I did need 3 coats for this to make sure all brushstrokes were smoothed out (only 2 for DDB), AND it is not as brush strok-ey in person as it looks here, but it is still lovely and I am thrilled that those of you who may have missed out on the OPI version can pick it up!

I got it at Walgreens, and I think it may be exclusive? I have been to many CVS stores recently when I was in FL and did not see it there. 

 Thanks again Amanda!

This foil just glows in the sun, doesn't it?  While I don't know why this is part of a bridesmaid collection, it's a pretty ridiculous polish and looks fantastic on Tara.  She's making me itch to whip out my DDB.  Just such an interesting polish!

Have you ladies picked up any of these Brides Maid beauties yet?

Please keep in mind that this is a scheduled post.  As I am currently out of the country, please refer all comments to the guest blogger.  Thank you!
