Chanel Paradoxal, as seen a million times before, but worse photos. Well, I am sorry, but I just couldn't wait to wear it on a sunny day. I broke it out the morning after I had it even though the weather was greyish.
This is my first ever Chanel nailpolish. Maybe the last. Who can tell what the future will bring? All I know is what has been in the past, and I was never impressed enough by Chanel's lacquers to pay the big bucks- but Paradoxal, I just had to have. It's just unique enough for me not to wait for the possibility of dupes showing up among the cheap brands. Seriously, can you beat a look like this?! I know, my photos are grainy galore, but you have seen this one before, and better. Still.
I could have loved this one even more. Like, say, if the formula had been better. Application? Not impressed. Drying time? Sure. Impressed. Wear? Not impressed. Got dents after I got to work, and chipping in the early afternoon.
But it was totally worth it for the color. Totally. The whole hour while it was still looking good.
Swedish word of the day:
lera -noun clay, mud
Sprinkle ground violets on top and you have Paradoxal.
