China Glaze – Channelesque Nail Polish NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 2 - 2010

Channelesque is a discontinued China Glaze shade… it’s still available on eBay at the standard price so I thought I’d it share anyway.

It’s a dusky mauve with more than just a hint of grey.  Quite frankly, it’s gorgeous and one of my favourite China Glaze shades.  I *would* liken it to Sephora by OPI’s Metro Chic… but as I don’t have it to compare, I won’t ;)

My bottle is getting a bit old now and could do with thinning… despite this, application was still pretty dreamy.  Two coats to achieve a solid, glossy finish.

For those of you hatin’ on my beloved taupes ;)  Is this a bit less concrete for ya?! x

    Very nice color! Is it similar to Chanel’s Particulière?

    I love grey/mauve/taupe polishes. OPI ‘Sheer’ Your Toys is one of my fail save polishes. x

    i’ve been seeing a lot of these “greige-y” colours around lately. i didn’t like it at first but i must say it’s growing on me. i like this one more than the OPI one because it’s not as brown. gorgeous colour!

  9. It looks similar to Metro Chic, but I think this one looks like it has more mauve tones in it. Lovely colour though! x

    Oh my GOD. I know I always love your nail polish, but this is literally the most gorgeous shade I’ve ever seen! Everything about it — the tone, the level, the creamy opacity… perfection.

    (I wonder if I could somehow buy a bottle, bring it into a paint shop, and have them replicate it? Because I’m really going to need a room accent in this *exact* shade. STAT!)

    Nice! I’m loving that colour. Now I have to go pick up Sephora’s Metro Chic, it’s the closest thing I know to that colour. Can def. see why it’s discontinued though. Chanel Particuiliere, anyone?
