China Glaze Dusk-Repost

I'm reposting this because my initial set of pictures was pretty sucky (due to my old camera being sucky) and didn't fully capture the essence of this polish. I'm just anal like that, I guess. :-)

This polish is really old. I had to dig a little, but I finally found out it's from the China Glaze Platinum Series Collection, year unknown.

I think ChG Dusk is very close to Chanel Paradoxal, Revlon Perplex, and Barry M Dusky Mauve, but I would need to see them side-by-side to compare. Like the aforementioned shades, Dusk is a dusty purple with light purple shimmer.

Two coats, no topcoat.

The formula was fine. It was a tad on the thick side, but a few drops of thinner and a few shakes solved that problem. This polish is not Big 3 free, but I would have known that even if I hadn't read the label. The smell was quite pungent.

None of that mattered, though. This polish was worth it, and then some.

Happy painting!

I hit the jackpot one day at the nail salon. I need to go back and see what else they have.

Wow, this does remind me of paradoxal.

Very interesting! I didn't even know this one existed.

Dupe or not, it's indeed a gorgeous shade. The old CG bottles are bigger, judging by your pics.

Marox, I never noticed that until I read your comment. They don't seem any different in size to my naked eye, and they certainly aren't bigger than OPIs, which are 15 ml. My ChG Rosita also says 18.5 ml, and that one is only a few years old. That is truly odd!
