Tropez - Black Pearl

APPLICATION: Smooth
COATS: 3
TOPCOAT?: No
SOURCE: Rite Aid - about a year ago on clearance.

COMMENTS: I decided to do a quick swatch of this color for a fellow MakeupAlley Nail board participant on Saturday. She had seen this color on Ebay and wanted to know if it might be a dupe for Chanel's color with the same name. I can't answer that question as I don't have the pricier polish, but this is actually pretty nice - I seriously considered using it as a full  manicure! Hmm.. I'm starting to look at frosty polish in a different light.

  1. Maybe this is just my tired eyes, but it doesn't look so much black as gunmetal gray.

    Like it all the same. I wonder if they still have it at Rite Aid.

  2. I have Tropez and Chanel. Both are frosty but not dupes. Chanel's Black Pearl has green in it. Maybe if she add some green in Tropez she can get close to Chanel's.

    I got mine on sale at Walgreens when they were clearing them out. It's lovely on you. You are so right some frosts aren't that bad :)
