The 17 version has a more pinky toned shimmer to it than the Chanel, but the effect on the nail is similar. A murky, dark purple but with the 17 the shimmer doesn’t vanish as soon as you apply to the nail. It has shimmer in natural light, bright sunlight and artificial light and generally (in my opinion) is the better version.
It’s not exactly revolutionary that there’s a similar version of Paradoxal on the market, there have been ‘dupes’ around for a while. The difference with this one is that I think it’s better! If you like the look of Paradoxal in the bottle, but disappointed when on the nail then this is worth a look.
