Twinsie Tuesday: Revlon Perplex

Hi chicas!  I'm baaaack!

First of all, let me just tell you that the Dominican Republic is truly a beautiful place.  The beaches are immaculate, the people are laid back and lovely, and while the weather was a bit too humid for my taste, it was nice to not be in New York when snow hit.

But on to Twinsie Tuesday, Week 3!  This week's polish is a famous dupe.  I decided that I'd go with my first dupe ever and the beginning of what I believe is Revlon's transformation into a really reputable nail brand that can dupe a Chanel like nobody's business.

Behold, Perplex and really remarkable dupe for Chanel Paradoxical (seriously, Google it, you'll see what a fantastic job Revlon did...and for $7!  Fab!).  This muddy purple has an almost dusty quality, which you know I looove, that really screams chic to me.  Opaque in two coats, this color is absolutely amazing and while muted, really made my skin look gorgeous while I was wearing it.  This is truly one of my favorite all-time polishes.

With flash, you can see that inner shimmer that flashes pinkish-grey.  It's not super noticeable in person, but when the light catches it, I promise you'll swoon.  

For those of you who weren't able to pick up Perplex when it hit the stores last year as a limited edition, Revlon just rereleased this as "Naughty."  While I think it's stupid to rename a very popular polish, make sure that if you're on the hunt for this to look for it under it's new name.  (For confirmation, check out my girl ChiChi's post comparing the two.)

Oh and before I forget...

Happy Valentine's Day!

  1. I have a lot of the Revlon Dupes, but this one I haven't been able to find! BTW still no luck with Purple Reign.. I'll keep you posted :-P

  2. Aw thanks, Iris! If you'd still like Naughty, I'm happy to pick one up for you since I've seen it all over the place. Let me know, maybe we can do a mini swap...?

  3. I love how nicely this polish goes on!  Great mani! ^-^  Also, I'm glad that you had a good time on your trip.  :D

  4. Thanks, Ashley! As soon as I have a minute to breath, I will be responding to your email :)

  5. I got perplex on a sale last week. beautiful color can't wait to swatch it :)

  6. You'll love it! It's super flattering.

  7. This is an awesome dupe! I really like this polish, and I am so glad Revlon is dupeing!

  8. I think changing the name is stupid too.  What's the point?

  9. To confuse us into buying submission??

  10. Glad you had a good trip! Looks beautiful!! 

  11. We are literal twinsies! I chose the same one and love it too! Great minds think alike. :)

  12. I love it that we chose the same thing!  How cool are we?

    Ashley also chose it, so I think it's pretty awesome that we all hit the same polish.  Nory and Anne twinned up with Revlon Whimsical.  While I think great minds think alike, I also think Revlon has really outdone itself re: dupes.

  13. Welcome back from the Dominican Republic! I bet you are sad you missed the snow ;)  lol
    Great choice. I love how this glows when it hits the light! :)

  14. Definately a dupe!  Love the dustiness of it.  So glad you had a great time on your holiday :)

  15. Welcome back! I agree, it is stupid for them to rename a popular polish.
