Add This Duochrome to Your Nail Portfolio

Color Club Port-folio Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “purple duochrome.” It flashes from violet purple to aqua-green. The duochrome is incredibly present and noticeable. I don’t have it, but Zoya Adina seems like it would be similar, perhaps a bit lighter. Initially, my mind went to Rescue Beauty Lounge Scrangie, but it’s definitely a pinker purple with more of a blue shimmer.

It’s fully opaque after two coats, and the formula was a breeze to work with; not too thick or too thin, so it applied evenly and fluidly without overflowing along the edges. I tested this shade specifically for wear, and it wore for a fully seven days with minor tip wear but no chips. There are some visible brush strokes in the finish, which is as anticipated, but may be a deal-breaker for you.  I think the strength of the duochrome might sway you, though ;)

This is a duochrome combination that I haven't seen half a dozen times or more, and the duochrome itself is particularly strong and noticeable with this shade. It's also opaque in two coats, and it had a great consistency.

    What a neat color combination. Makes me think of a deep sea mermaid. Or Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty.

  2. I love purple nail polish but I never feel like I have enough! Adding this to the list!

  3. This seems a bit darker than Adina, it’s true.

    I feel like I always see the same duochrome polishes over and over, but this one is so pretty and unique! It’s refreshing to see something new.

  5. Dinitchka

    This is pretty. I am a sucker for duochromes. I have yet to buy this brand. I am not sure what I am waiting for? LOL!

    It looks like a ‘triochrome’ to me rather than a duochrome. I see green, blue and purple. Very beautiful color.

  7. Sandrine

    RBL Scrangie is definitely different from this one but this is a lovely color.

  8. I find this one meh and prefer yesterday’s CG Unpredictable.

  9. Great and original duochrome combination!

  10. Gorgeous colour!
    I will try to get my paws
    on this beauty!
