Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer….the series all about nail polish and nail care! Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas to Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.
I almost did a cartwheel when I unwrapped some Chanel polishes this past Christmas. I’ve tried several brands of nail polish but only a handful of luxury brands. And while I’ve always wanted to try Chanel, I just couldn’t justify buying a $25 of le vernis. As much as I love nail polishes, come on, yo…$25 is a lot for ONE bottle. Or am I cheap? Probably the latter. 8)
Gotta love when people can read your mind and get your desires for you.
So how awesome is Paradoxal? Hit the jump to see if it met my expectations.
I felt like some kind of diva using this polish. I know, I know…I shouldn’t be acting all honorary just for using a Chanel polish but since that polish was as close as I was going to get to Chanel anything, I lived it up.
It’s a stunning color, right? It could be described as dusty plum. In fact, it looks more vibrant in the bottle than it does on the nails. And I definitely wouldn’t file it under my “Favorites”.
It’s just okay. I wanted more. And do you see that chipping on my middle nail? That’s only after 1 day of wear. Come on, Chanel darling…you’ve got to do better than that. And while I probably don’t have a color like this in my collection, I’m not sure if I would have gotten it for myself.
But I absolutely LOVE my family for scooping it up for me. They rock.
Have you tried any Chanel polishes? Whatcha think?
