Topaz is a gorgeous multi-chrome that’s a mix of green, blue, and gold depending on how the light hits it. I think the green is the most dominant shade here, the blue is not nearly as strong as green but it comes through sometimes (eg on my thumb in the above picture). Application is beautiful. I was a little worried because it looked pretty watery, but one coat is almost opaque, and two coats is enough for complete opaqueness. It wasn’t streaky at all. It’s probably one of the most easily applied polish I have in my stash.
I have always been intrigued by multi-chrome (or duochrome) polishes, but never picked one up because I don’t think I will wear it much. But this polish is so pretty it makes me want to pick up a couple more shades in the range (there are 8 in total). Also, I love the packaging!
These should be available in store now (or in the very near future). I believe I’ve seen it around for $9.99, but one catch is that this polish is only 8.6ml (versus 15ml for most full size polishes).
Have you tried any Chroma Chameleon Nail Enamel by Revlon? What is your favourite multi- or duo-chrome polish?

A quick NOTD post… I was bored with preparing for my thesis presentation and studying, so as usual, I painted my nails! I used Essie’s Absolutely Shore (from last year’s summer collection) as the base colour, then painted dots of purple using Essie’s Love & Acceptance (from upcoming 2012 Bridal collection).
I used nail dotting tools to help me with the dots, I know a lot of people just use q-tips, but for some reason that never works for me. I got a whole set of nail dotting tools on eBay for $1.99! Can you believe it? And it comes with 5 tools of different sizes that allow you to paint different size dots! Continue reading
