Here’s yet another one of the Misslyn duochromes from my stash. 🙂 This is Leguan. It is not a Peridot dupe, but in the same family. I’m pretty sure even if not a dupe, it’s pretty damn close to another one of the new China Glaze duochromes.
This polish moves from blue-teal-green-to-olive.
Gorgeous. In some lights it’ll be a yellow-toned green, in others a seafoam-y blue.
And, why, yes, I took a ton of pictures. 😉
I mean, so pretty!
Ok. I think I’m done with my Misslyns for now. Though I’ve yet to try them over black… 😉
This seems to be the autumn of duochromes (I wanted to say “fall”, but that really wouldn’t have worked here 😉 ) so I busted out one of my pretty Misslyns I haven’t shown on this blog yet.
Feast your eyes on Blue Planet. A turquoise to purple duochrome shimmer that’s pretty much amazing.
The colour shift is really strong and the formula is just lovely.
As per usual, the duochrome is at its strongest in low and/or indirect light… however, the colour is beautiful even when looking like a straight up shimmer in direct sunlight.
This polish pretty much slays me. I love that unlike most duo- and multichromes I own this is really opaque and I could actually get away with one thicker coat though I went for two for the pictures. 🙂
Stunning! That’s what it is! Misslyn’s Chameleon, that is. If it’s really dupe-y for Peridot I can definitely understand what all the fuss was about.
The LE stand told to layer this over black, but I wanted a feel for the polish itself, so I wore it on its own. Glad I did!
I mean… UNGH! Here it is a three coats and a picture perfect formula. I thought it would be brush-stroke-y, but no, this tries to just a perfect shimmer.
It’s actually so reflective and mirror-like in indirect light that it reminds me of some of the chromes I’ve tried. I actually wouldn’t hesitate to call it a faux-chrome duochrome. And the effect from antique gold to vivid green is strong! As in always present and visible.
It sparkles like crazy in direct light to boot!
I can’t even decide how I like it more — direct-light sparkly or indirect-light mirrory. 😉
I’ve worn it for two days now and no chips in sight, so yay! for the lasting power as well.
Here’s a sneak peak of what’s to come (and Chameleon as it compares to it’s siblings. She’s in the middle.)
I cannot wait to try the rest of these Misslyn duochromes! 😀
I have too many polishes!Seriously, I’m running out of space to put them and nails to wear them on. So I’ve officially been on a no-buy (with a couple of exceptions) for nearly a month now. And I was doing so well too, until I saw a new brand today in the store — I mean, a new line of polish for me (OMG!) and there was a LE collection too.
And get this, they were duochromes! (That was the sign of my downfall.)
Cue hyperventilating and all that. 😉
Ok, so I gather the brand is German, it’s called Misslyn. The bottles are 10ml, which is entirely normal for a European brand. There were tons of pretty polishes in the core line as well, but I only picked up one from there (Blue Planet) and the rest were from the LE Peacock collection.
Have a look!

Don’t you just love when you randomly find polishes like these? 😀 I know I do, even if my wallet and storage situation don’t. 😛
Btw, I’m pretty sure that Chameleon is another of Chanel Peridot dupes. Just FYI. 😉
