Polish Pick: Revlon Perplex

After searching high and low, I finally found the latest polish to blow up the blogosphere, Revlon Perplex… The infamous Chanel Paradoxal dupe. I do not own Paradoxal as I do not feel the need to pay $23 for a nail polish, why I do not own any Chanel polishes. So there will be no comparison shots. However, Perplex is eye candy enough.

Revlon Purplex is a deep purple with charcoal undertones and super fine light purple glitter. My top coat (Seche Vite) is super glossy, making it hard to catch the glitter particles, but you can see it slightly. My oh my do I love this shade. I can’t stop sneaking a peek at my nails.  I have nothing similar in my collection, NADA!

I know this shade has been really hard to find for some, so I picked up all that was left on the display… for a giveaway!

    I think this polish is very interesting, it's nice to see two popular colours come together as one. I actually never knew purple could turn taupe and vice versa depending on the lighting, really cool.

    I heard it's a dupe for Chanel Paradoxal?! it's great coz the revlon in my area doesn't carry this shade, and Chanel is out of my budget…

    I'm a follower via Google Friend Connect. I think this polish is a gem I've always wanted to have Chanel Paradoxal but there was no way I'm going to shell out the money for it. Drugstore dupes rule in my book .

    I haven't owned Perplex, hard to say what I think about it, lol. But if it's a dupe of Channel, I'm all for it

    Perplex looks amazing on you! You can really see the purple in it on you, on me I see more of the gray in it on me. You're gonna make some people happy with this giveaway!! πŸ™‚

    purple is my favorite color. this nail polish looks really shiny and smooth, not streaky at all

  18. 12.15.2010 / 2:15 pm

    What's not to say about that gorgeous nail colour?! Not only is the formula supposedly a god-send, but the multifaceted colour is the bees knees! I love it and I want it, but I can't find it over here in Nassau, Bahamas; so hopefully i will win your giveaway hun.

    This shade is absolutely stunning, I don't have a hue like it in my collection. I have never tried any Revlon polishes to date so will definitely put this on my wishlist, however if it is hard for you guys to get it, I don't like my chances here in Australia. Will have to keep my fingers crossed in hope of getting a win πŸ™‚

    Perplex looks ridiculously gorgeous on you. I feel the same way about Chanel polishes, I really can't see myself ever buying any. I just can't justify the price when there are other brands just as pretty for a lot less.

    I am a new follower on gfc under name hermetic

    I love taupey purples like this, I feel this one is great color, but we don't get special edition Revlons here. Looks way more purple than Paradoxal, at least in pics.

    I've added this giveaway to my sidebar on my blog here http://hermetic-blog.blogspot.com/

  32. 12.22.2010 / 5:01 pm

    Wow! Looks fabulous, such a nice colour! I adore the Revlon
    Nail Enamels and have about a million but sadly I can’t find Perplex anywhere is Australia! I think it’s not released here yet, so I’m hanging out for it to say the least!
    If I win or get my hands on it some way or another I’ll let you know my thoughts, heard great things about it!

    I tweeted about this comp on twitter (@parisiennebeaut) and will do until it’s over so hopefully more Aussies can lay their hands and such a seeked item here! Good luck girls πŸ™‚
