The lovely Charlotte of Mason Jars & Fireflies had a giveaway that I won recently. If you don't know Charlotte please check out her blog, she writes about all sorts of things including beauty, life, her upcoming move to Denver and does a fabulous good idea/bad idea post on Fridays.
So what did I win? Well she gave away a bottle of Revlon's Perplex nail polish, the much sought after dupe for Chanel's Paradoxal. Perplex is said to be almost identical in color to Paradoxal, a beautiful mix of gray, violet and plum. Chanel polishes usually cost around $23, which is out of bounds for this beauty budget girl. So I was thrilled to get my hands on this hard to find dupe!
Here is what it looks like,
Ok admittedly I did a poor job of slapping this on and normally I'd be a bit more careful, but I really wanted to get some photos of this polish. I've heard that people get frustrated with the drying time for Revlon polishes. I did find it took a while to dry, but that was just more time for me to have an excuse to sit & watch a trashy reali...I mean 60 minutes.
I personally love these kinds of colors and look forward to wearing it, although I'll likely use it as more of a fall or winter color.
So what do you think? Is this your kind of color?
Thanks again Charlotte!
