Perplexed

Just look at this lovely shade :) it honestly is "perplexing" to explain.


I won this lovely polish, along with two others from Karen over at Frazzle and Aniploish. It total, from left to right I won: Perplex, Back With Envy and Carbonite, all dupes for Chanel polishes :) Thanks again, I love them all :)


I was super happy to win these because I could not find Perplex anywhere in Canada, and I wanted it so bad. This was the first colour I put on after Halloween, I was so excited to try it out all through October :)


The formula seemed a bit thick, but the good kind of thick that is seasy to work with, only 2 coats were needed. It also dried a bit darker than the bottle colour.

Now I'm not sure if it was the fault of the polish or the top coat, but i did get some bubbling. You can't see them in the pictures, because I discovered a way to get rid of them. If you are interested in trying this out yourself, let me know and I will put together a quick and easy tutorial.


I added a bit of thinner to the polish to help with bubbling in the future. if it was the Revlon's fault. This polish is amazing though, it different lighting the base which I would describe as a taupy purple, gets lighter or darker, and in some lighting you can see the purple shimmer, in others you cannot. Very pretty, if you come across it I would suggest picking it up.
