Color Club Editorial Nail Lacquer
The Beauty of Duochromes
Color Club Editorial Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “peridot duochrome.” It’s a yellowy, dirty gold with brown and green in it that flashes from gold to grass green. It is, not surprisingly, a dupe for Chanel Peridot. The also recently-released China Glaze Rare & Radiant is rather similar as well (to be reviewed). Ozotic #507 is a bit darker, more green to blue than gold to green.
The formula on this was just right–not too thick or too thin–and it waso paque after two coats. It has a frosted, metallic finish, so there are some minor brush strokes visible under brighter light. They are the type that tends to add to the finish, rather than take away. They apply straight and don’t go all wonky. This was actually one of the shades from the fall launch that I test-drove for wear, and it lasted a full seven days without chipping and only had minor tip wear. This was true whether I used a base/top coat or just applied to bare nails. I will warn you that next to nothing chips on me, though.
