Milani Dress Maker is a color that came in the Haute Value Collection in summer. This is said to be dupe of Chanel Jade. I think I've only bought into higher end polish hype once with Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe. It was well worth it! No regrets! I've never been moved by another other high-end colors. It has to be super amazing, non-dupable, and non-frankenable for me to really want it. When you're on a budget you have to be picky! That is just me though.
I never bought into the Chanel Jade craze because lighter greens tend to look pretty bad on me. I did however buy into the Milani Dress Maker is a dupe to Chanel Jade hype. I guess there is an appeal of having a dupe to a $20+ shade. You feel like you accomplished something buy saving a ton of money. I couldn't find this in stores so I bought this online. I wanted it that bad. Unfortunently, as beautiful as this shade is, it definitely is not my color!
There is no denying how beautiful this shade is. It just clashes with my skin horribly. At least I think so. Blech. Greens and I already have a rocky relationship, so it doesn't completely surprise me. Oh well!
Speaking of Milani...have you noticed Milani hasn't released a new nail polish collection in a couple months? Milani was cranking out new collections in summer. I can think of at least 5 collections released over the summer by them. I haven't see anything since. I'd love a holiday or winter collection by them. They always release really great shades. Milani if you're listening you have a customer who wants a winter or holiday collection!
