Truly Perplexed

Good Tuesday to you!  And you.  Annnnnd you.  It's been an...interesting...day here at the clinic.  Computer issues.  Stoopid employees.  Just a weird day.  Add to that the increasing anxiety of my impending vacay...I'm ready to go home.  Hopefully the wind won't blow in MORE smoke (it was SOOOOO bad last night).  The hubs mentioned that it's funny to think we'll be breathing cleaner air in Cali than we have here at the moment.  If only we'd get some rain...

Anyway...I don't know why I haven't posted this yet.  I have had these pics on my flashdrive for what seems like months.  And I know you've seen this polish ALL over the blogs, but you haven't seen it recently and you haven't seen it on mine.  So there.

Here she is.  The gorgeous Revlon Perplex, dupe to Chanel Paradoxal.  I wasn't about to shell out the cash for the Chanel polish, so I was super excited to hear that there was a dupe in Perplex.  It took me a while to find it, but when I did (at Ulta), I grabbed it as fast as I could.  This is indoors with flash.

In direct sunlight.  Perplex is a pretty dusty purple with an incredible purple shimmer.  At some angles, the purple looks so dusty that it almost looks gray.  I don't care how you describe it, Perplex is gorgeous!

Outdoors, direct bright sun.  In the upper pic, you can see how this almost looks gray.  It's funny, it took me weeks to find this polish.  Then, on a whim, I stopped by Big Lots and I found quite a few bottles.  So, I grabbed those, too, and gave one to the bestie, one to a coworker and then shipped one off to a fellow blogger.  I think I even have another one sitting in reserve in my Helmer!  I don't know what I'm doing with a reserve...it's not like I'll even go through an entire bottle on my own!

Well, the smoke has rolled in again.  It smells like a giant campfire outside.  Not to mention you can't even really see the mountains to the east of the city.  I'm off to do some work (imagine that)!  Enjoy the rest of your day.  See you tomorrow!

Purplex looks faboo on you. :) I love that polish and own two bottles, myself. :D

That fire is just horrifying. The way the wind is blowing, we only get tiny wisps of smoke in the air here in Prescott. But in states to the East of us, people are choking. If the wind shifts, our lungs are toast. I wish that this psycho wind would stop, already. They need to get a handle on that fire.

Its a really pretty color with a much prettier price tag than the Chanel. I know that after I wore it once I frankened with it. But that's just my nature. lol

Wow! It's amazing that you can't see the mountains to the east because of the smoke. They always seem so close and clear. Still counting days and not hours until you arrive :)

I don't know if I was on crack at the time, but when I saw this polish floating around on blogs a few months ago it didn't look nearly as pretty as it does here. Especially that first picture! Nom
