chanel paradoxal is a grey violet polish with a hint of purple shimmer buried in it. hells bells, i seriously could not live without this baby, from the second i saw the fall promo pictures for this, i knew i had to have it. inside it seems dark and mysterious but has a hint of something different, while outside it shimmers and glows. and the chanel formula has become like crack to me, ever since i got chanel paticuliere in a contest, i cannot get over how creamy dreamy their polishes are! sincerely amazing. this is two coats with a coat of seche over it.
