I've decided to change nail swatch entries to 'On My Nails' instead of just 'Nails'. A random small change and I haven't gone back to switch them all but one thing at a time!
Speaking of 'one thing at a time', I finally got to using my Chanel Paradoxal nail polish. I hauled it way back in September, even before the Jeans collection which I ended up swatching before Paradoxal.
I read some reviews back when the color first launched and there were certain mentions about people being a tad disappointed with how it swatches. In the bottle there is a lovely purple shimmer that shines through when it hits the light however on the nails that same effect is downplayed quite a bit.
In truth I really don't mind that factor because the color on it's own is a gorgeous darkened aubergine, very pretty! Only under bright or strong light (such as camera flash and the sun) does the purple glint make its appearance. To me, this kind of reminds me of those car color choices, with a general purplish base color and a glint when it hits the light.
Out of complete randomness I decided to do some (hideous) nail art on my thumb, if you can even call it nail art. It started with a purple strip (LA Girl) down the centre and just evolved to 'I don't know what the heck the design even is'.
At least the polish is kinda dark so you can't really see it but it's quite cute to look at (from afar).
I think Paradoxal sits on the same shelf as Metro Chic, the two colors that I absolutely love and I think are classic to wear in any situation.
What are the polishes that you love and can throw on anytime when you're not sure what to use?
Thanks for reading!
