I won this in a giveaway and I was so happy! This is a dupe for Chanel's Paradoxal, which I wanted. However, Chanel chips really fast on me and it's so expensive. This nail polish is gorgeous! The shimmer in the bottle is stronger than when on your nails, but I actually like it better that way. In some lighting you can't see the shimmer, and it looks like a purple-brown type color. I used two coats.
