Chanel Fall Collection just arrived at most stores this week. I was so exited about Paradoxal since I saw first pictures of new collection. I couldn't wait. I called myself to my local Nordstrom every day even SA from Chanel counter promised to call me as soon as it arrives. So I didn't miss it and I'm ready to show you what it all about. How can Chanel to discover something new every time? But I can say that Paradoxal is really unique. We already had some dusty grayish purple like Metro Chic before and we already had purple shimmer like in Nars Purle Rain before but for some mystic reason no one get idea to incorporate shimmer in dusty grayish cream base before Chanel got. Hey, other nail polish brands, I'm predicting new trend called "dusty colors with shimmer". Any colors are welcome.
OK, now we are back to Paradoxal. Don't forget to click at this picture otherwise you can miss point.
I would call this color dusty plum. This is between purle, brown and gray. Dirty putty color! Reddish purple shimmer is pretty visible in direct sun light. It's not really visible without bright light. Color is dark but never looks black. It's more brown in warm yellow electric light. Application is flawless. Here is 2 coats and no top coat. Big respect to Chanel for improving formula that much over last year. As I expected this definitely is A MUST HAVE. And Paradoxal along with Illusion d'Or and Particuliere hits my 3 favorites Chanel nail polishes list. LOOOOOVE it!
