Chanel Paradoxal


Chanel Paradoxal 509. Dark purple taupe with secret pink and blue shimmer. Paradoxal is from the Les Contrastes de Chanel fall 2010 collection and it has since been added to their permanent line.


This beauty is a dream to apply, the formula is very smooth and easy to work with. I was able to get flawless coverage in two thin coats. I love how Paradoxal is so mysterious, not only is the purple taupe base an unique colour on its own but the secret shimmer adds depth and dimension to the polish.


What's special about Paradoxal is the fact that it takes on a different colour depending on the angle or lighting that you're in. Sometimes you'll see a dark purple, other times you'll see a grungey taupe. I especially like it in the sun because the lovely shimmah glistens beautifully under the bright light. :)


P.S. I've always wanted to get piercings but I can't because of medical complications but thank goodness for clip-ons! Surprise surprise! You can barely tell it's not a real earring no? ;)

  8. The Sneakerette- By the way, some places actually customize clip-ons for you, you can bring in a pair of regular earrings and they can add the clip on. This way you'll have a greater selection to choose from! I hope this helps! :)

  10. Paradoxal looks stunning on you! I have it but I just used it once and was not so happy with it...but at the time (one year ago), I didn't really like wearing "dark" polishes...I should def try it again. it's so gorgeous on you here!

  11. This is a stunning color, I have one almost identical although I can't remember the brand & name. I love the way you capture your nails in the pictures, with the little details of holding a teacup or placing your fingers near your earring...just lovely!
