I know, I know. I'm late to the game. But, ya know, when it's 98° outside and the heat index is like 114°, it's really hard to get into the fall mindset. Nevertheless, I promised pictures, and so I shall deliver.
Paradoxal is really quite a descriptive name for this color. In some lighting it's taupe, others it's dirty grey, and still, others it's a deep, dusty, vintage violet (my favorite color in the whole wide world). On the nails, it appears to be a cream finish, but in the sunlight, the subtle shimmer shows through. Definitely not the color that is in the bottle, but still utterly gorgeous.
More pictures after the jump.
Like I said, utterly gorgeous. I'm getting another. Maybe two. The formula is pretty typical for Chanel. Opaque in two coats, but I always do three.
(Apologies for all the bubbling. Stupid topcoat. I wised up and just tossed it.)
