Cover Girl Purplexed With A Little Duo Chrome Action!

I don't have too many Cover Girl polishes in my collections, but this is without a doubt, my favorite one. Purplexed looks like a pretty grape-toned purple shimmer at first glance, but first impressions don't tell the whole story. Purplexed is actually somewhat complex.

Below: After getting to know Purplexed a little better, it has more to offer, don't you agree?

Below: A little flash of gold, a bit of red, some olive around the edges, and a gloss that looks like shiny plastic.

I'd rate the duo chrome strength only about a 3 or 4 on a scale of 10, but I do love this one. I used 3 thin coats to get even coverage, and I'm always amazed at the glossiness of this shade. The bottle is taller than a standard bottle, and the cap is somewhat longer, but the size is just .33 fl. oz., rather than the standard .50 fl. oz. No matter to me, because it's still a duo chrome!


  1. oeh I like this color....me & purples...almost insta love ;)

  2. Gorgeous color :D


  3. That's a great colour


  4. That is a lovely purple though! Yum!

  5. Yay to duochrome! For some reason, duochromes gets me excited. Not as excited as glitters or holos though but still....very excited!

  6. Ooooh, I actually own this one! I picked it right up because it looked like the most unique polish Cover Girl had to offer in that particular range... I think it was called the Queen Collection, or something. It looks great on you, Mary!

    PS... I tagged you with an award over at my blog!


  7. Love that shade on you. Gorgeous and so glossy. I don't think I own any Cover Girl polishes. Just checked in my book and I own 4 Boundless Colors by CG. Darn I thought maybe it might be in my book. No luck.

  8. Never thought of Cover Girl nail polish. Perplexed looks like a dream! Love the purple shade on your nails. Amazing look! Plus, it's 3-in-1, base, color and top coat!

  9. There's no chance to get Cover Girl nail polish where I live, but I'd love to have the opportunity to try them. This particular color looks stunning, I love purples ;-)
