Hey gals! Today I have a fall color from last year that was VERY popular but that I didn't get my hands on until recently. I'm talking about that dark, taupe-y, mushroomy color with a purple shimmer only visible in direct lighting. AKA, Chanel Paradoxal. Of course, being the trendsetters that they are, a lot of dupes of this color were made, one of the most popular being Revlon Perplex. I absolutely love that Revlon does dupes of high end polishes. Please, Revlon polish gods, make a Peridot dupe! Anyways, on to the swatches. What you see here is two coats topped with Essie Good to Go Top Coat.
It's gorgeous and I'm glad I have it... now on to one of my BIGGEST PET PEEVES EVER... messy cuticles. If you're going to go through the trouble of doing your nails with a gorgeous color or even do amazing nail art...why leave it unfinished? It's almost as if you don't care about your hard work... it doesn't take very long to do, and the results are amazing. Here, I've taken a before and after shot to show what I mean:
You don't have to spend forever on it to make it perfect, but at least smooth out the edges... I mean, do your polish and hard work some justice! Okay, my rant is over.
Thanks for reading! Happy polishing! :)
