Today, I have a nail polish that is recently popular because it's a VERY close dupe for the popular Chanel Paradoxal, which I still don't have yet. I picked it up today from a full display at Duane Reade near my work. I also picked up an extra bottle for my giveaway (I've decided to have it when I reach 300 followers). 

But here's my swatch of Revlon's Perplex which is a darkened plum gray with a purple shimmer. I've seen comparisons of the two and Perplex has more shimmer than Paradoxal so if you prefer less shimmer or "hidden" shimmer, you should go for Paradoxal but you don't need both. The swatch is 2 coats and 1 coat of Seche top coat. I absolutely love this color! I've been lemming Paradoxal so this is feeding my lemming :)

I'd like to say (again) that I will be holding a giveaway to celebrate for reaching 300 followers (when I reach 300 I will post up the giveaway). So, there will be only one prize and maybe a small second prize. But so far I only have one bottle of Revlon Perplex. All items in this giveaway will either be brand new and purchased by me, or has been swatched once. I hope no one will have a problem with that. :\

hope you enjoyed & happy polishing! :)
