There are several challenges to be addressed here. It's a duochrome metallic that's difficult to photograph and I relied on the few reviews I had seen online. None of the counters I had seen had it. It was a limited edition shade that had gotten so much press before reaching American shores. It was either, get it or risk not being able to get it. Something possessed me to pull the trigger because I usually have a good experience with Chanel nail color. So I ordered it online.
