NYX Paradise Nail Lacquer

NYX Paradise Nail Polish ($5.00) is a funky shade perfect for summer!  It’s this blue-teal with flecks of gold-green shimmer.  I thought it’d be a nice shade to feature for the upcoming warmer, summery season :)

The formula doesn’t standout, but it’s solid — it’s not too thick or thin, and it goes opaque in three coats (but you definitely need three).  I get good wear out of this polish, too–it’s my first NYX polish–so I was pleasantly surprised by that.  I used Zoya’s Color Lock System for the polish, just as a FYI!

  5. ooh, I love this shade. I wonder if I can find it in the very limited NYX selection in Canadian drugstores.

    Wow, this looks like Undercurrent Pearlglide eye pencil except in a nail polish. I will have to get this.

  7. Oh WOW- that is a gorgeous color, and only $5? Looking at the swatch on their website, I’d never know it looks so good.

      Btw, do you know if these are B3F? I can’t take the smell of Formaldehyde.

    Wowo, weird. I have their Juliette polish and it looks the same, at least to me.

  14. Ashley

    I really love that – and NYX is available in Canada!

    I have a MUFE shadow that looks very similar to that.

  15. Carrie

    Ooh, pretty!

  16. Ashley

    It’s beautiful.

    I love NYX’s nail polishes. They last a really long time without chipping.

  18. I love duochrome polishes!

  19. Oh my god that’s gorgeous!!

  20. Love this so much! Its very similar to mac’s aqualine and I believe this green-ish color from the Maybelline Eyestudio palette in Irresistibly Ivy is rather close and even has gold reflects. Also, I have a shadow by Glamour Doll in Dirty Jeans which is identical to the polish.

  21. Heather

    I love that color! Actually, I just realized how much I love duo chromes lol! Whether it be nail polish, eyeshadow, lipstick, etc. I love them. :)

  22. Helena

    Ooh…shiny. Can I put this on my eyelids instead of MAC Undercurrent? ha ha.

  23. I got this shade along with some others, haven’t tried it yet but it’s beautiful!

  24. Christina

    My eyes literally lit up and I out loud went “oooh” before I could help myself as soon as I saw this. I love blue and gold combos!
