It’s officially Fall, though some might have been trying out some darker nail polish shades in the previous weeks, you now have official permission to store away the neons and bring out the muskier colors. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of frost and metallics, but I do own a few.
While shopping for a couple new Fall shades last week, I noticed the duo chrome shades. I had seen the Essie version in magazines ads already and was intrigued. Since I am personally allergic to the Essie formula, I was a little let down that I couldn’t experiment with this shade.
Duo chrome shades are basically tow colors in one bottle intermixed. Essie’s version is called For the Twill of It and is described as a rich medium brown with reflective green shimmer. Though if you look at the bottle, there seems to be some purple in it as well.
I was more than ecstatic when after some research, I found that two of the brands I can use have their own version of the purple/green duo chrome. Zoya’s take is called Adina and is described as a violet metallic multi chrome with a frosty hint of green and magenta that creates an “oil-slick” look.
Julep also added one to their collection with Blakely, which is described as a purple and green molten.
Opi also has their own take on the shade in Peace & Love, though theirs seems to have a bit more green in the color.
