Chanel Paradoxal & Estee Lauder Surreal Violet

This one's a scheduled post,
so hopefully by the time you read this,
I would be in the sun taking pics of the 1st Burlesque mani

While waiting for that one,
I present to you Chanel Paradoxal and Estee Lauder's Surreal Violet.

Middle & Pinky: the Chanel
Index & Ring: the Estee Lauder.

Each one was 2 coats + 1 coat of SV

I really liked this colour combi!
Would have been almost perfect except...

How come the swatches I see online of Paradoxal have this lovely shimmer but mine doesn't?

Did I get a dud bottle of Paradoxal?

I had to take a photo of Paradoxal inside using a flash to catch the shimmer on camera. It's very, very subtle and most of the time not even noticeable.

Yep, the shimmer of Paradoxal is very well hidden :-( It can be seen when you look at the bottle, but not anymore when you paint your nails. I must say, I was a little disappointed.

man... that sucks then.
I didn't realise that the hidden shimmer in Paradoxal was being so secretive and so well hidden!
totally get you about the disappointment
