I've been lusting over Paradoxal for quite some time now but the more swatches I see of it, the less special it starts to look...definitely not worth $23. I would totally buy the Models Own version if only it was available in the US...oh well! :) xx

Kristie said...

Awesome dupes. Thanks Yinka. I still think $23 is way too much for a nail polish although I love Chanel.

Clairey said...

I am afraid to say I have Paradoxal, I love Paradoxal and I am buying a back up Paradoxal!

It's been aaaages since I laid eyes on a nail polish and fell in love w it from swatches alone, so I guess I 'll be getting the real deal this time... but that Models Own is certainly an excellent dupe!
Both will make stellar options for a fall nail!
