Opposite Ends of the Spectrum

My two favorite polishes that I've used lately come from opposite ends of the price spectrum.

I hit the asian beauty supply place and got a few $1 Kleancolors. This one is called "Beach Blue," but it's actually more teal. A lot more teal than it appears in this photo. I probably could've gotten away with one coat, which has been my experience with Kleancolor cremes so far, but I did two just to make it purty.

My other favorite was Chanel Paradoxal. Good lord. It makes me hurt on the inside to think about how much Chanel nail polish costs, but, eh. I consider it a birthday present to myself. This was the last polish I wore before I severely shortened my nails. I just couldn't deal with them being that long anymore.

This was after a couple of days' wear. This color just looks grey or maybe purply-grey most of the time.

But by using the flash on my camera, you can really see the purple shimmer!

I like it. I don't regret spending the money on it because it's a unique color. :)


  1. In the picture, the Kleancolor looks like Zoya Robyn (obviously not in real life though). I'm glad you don't regret buying Paradoxal--I think I would feel guilty even if I did really like it! :)

  2. I love Paradoxal! I wish I had the money to buy it x_x; brokeeee. But it looks great on you and I like your nails long! :P After growing out my nails for so long I hate when they break and become short. Kleancolor looks awesome!

  3. That Kleancolor looks gorgeous on you.
