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

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

    Gorgeous colour! Might have to look for this one =)

  6. Ahhh! I love these mousey purpley brown shades. Definitely need to hunt this particular shade down!

    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!

    How does this compare to the InStyle Nails Inc Mink shade?

  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

  11. Lora says:

    Pretttyyyy.. I agree with Tacky, the purply mauve tones really make this colour! x

  12. Lala says:

    I don’t know if I would wear it Im more of a bright brights person but it looks awesome on you!

  13. Rae says:

    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!)

    this. is. gorgeous! and i must have it

  15. Cheryl says:

    Such a pretty colour! Just scurried off to scour ebay for it, but no luck :(
    Will have to keep an eye on this one!

  16. It has enough purple in it for me to really dig it :)

  17. Angela says:

    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?

  18. Arianne says:

    that is actually a gorgeous shade! :)
