I love my Milani polishes, and this color is absolutely gorgeous. It's a deep, dark, dramatic eggplant purple---almost black----which looks great on my fair skin. I'm sick of summer and ready for beautiful rich fall colors, so I guess I'm rushing the season a bit with this shade (though strangely, it was in Milani's spring collection). Also, I've been wearing it for ten days with no chipping.

The name of this shade makes me laugh, but in all honesty, this is one of the best drugstore polishes you're going to find for $3-$5. (It's a step down from Spoiled, but definitely far better than NYC or Confetti.) Milani's a great brand, in my opinion; they carry a LOT of dupes for high-end brands (check Temptalia if you don't believe me), but even besides that, I think they're just really very solid all on their own. I just wish they were more readily available! I can only find a Milani stand at maybe 1 out of 3 CVS locations I visit. They do sell online, but who wants to pay for shipping? Not me.
Hipster Plum (ha!!) itself is a nice basic deep purple. I think it may qualify as an eggplant purple, but it doesn't have the gray undertones or the muddiness that you sometimes get from polishes that shade; here, the color you get on your nails is completely true to what you see in the bottle. My one and only problem with the formula is that it's a little watery, leading to uneven application on the first coat, but things always even out with the second coat. Now, I'm not going to say this is as rich as, say, a NARS polish, but the quality is exactly the same as what you'd expect from an $8 salon polish.
Overall, Milani polishes are a great choice, and I think Hipster Plum (ha!! again) in particular is a wonderful shade that can flatter a wide variety of skin tones.
