Purchase - Hello Kitty for MAC On The Prowl Nail Polish and Milani Day Dreaming. What you don't want to hear.
So. You have been thinking about getting that gray nail polish called “On the Prowl” from the MAC Hello Kitty collection. Huh? What’s that? You already bought On the Prowl nail polish from the MAC Hello Kitty Collection? Humm. I see. So I guess you don’t want to hear about the $3.99 dupe from Milani called “Day Dreaming” that I saw at CVS yesterday do you?
OK. I won’t tell you that the Day Dreaming nail polish from Milani is also a limited edition. I won’t tell you that it looks slightly warmer in the bottle but once applied to your nails it looks almost exactly the same as the MAC polish.
I also won’t tell you that the Milani Polish is 0.45 fl oz (13.2 mL) versus MAC’s 0.34 fl oz (10 mL). so you actually get more Milani than MAC. (Math is hard)
I won’t tell you how Milani nail polish doesn’t chip as fast as MAC’s and that the brush is far superior to MAC scraggely one. Nope. I won’t mention it at all.
I also won’t tell you that while the Milani color is the exact same you do have to give it three coats to get opaque, MAC only requires 2 which I guess is a bad thing right? OK. So the advantages of having the MAC polish are that it only requires 2 coats versus three and has that adorable Hello Kitty on the bottle. The Milani bottle has the same old cheesy gold lettering. However, you can take a hello kitty sticker and put it on the Milani bottle. Then they would be almost alike.
After all. You already have that $15 polish from MAC. Why would you want to hear about a dupe from a drug store that’s less than half the price, lasts longer , has a better brush and has more product? That would be silly…right?
