Chameleon Nail Polish: Sunset, Corona, and Cyclone


Have you ever tried Chameleon Polish?  They are another brand of polish made by CQ Cosmetics (makers of Petites, Color Fever, and CQ Nail Polish).  The website describes these as "color changing polish that looks different from every angle" which translates to me as "duochrome".

Here is the first one I tried, "Sunset". I'd say this one is the most dense of the 3 I have, and the least duo-chromatic.  Nonetheless, it is gorgeous!  It covered very well- almost a one coater (and a polish I think would be perfect to stamp with).  It is a medium orange that flashes sligthly darker orange.  It was a little brush-strokey, but for some reason that didn't stop me from really diggin' it.  I think the super pigmentation of it trumped everything else for me:
(2 layers)


Then we have "Corona".  This one is so cool and so difficult to describe. It looks pink with brown flecks- almost like sand.  It is one the sheer side. I used 3 layers here:

How is this even the same polish!?






And here is "Corona" over black (pointer and middle finger) and over white (ring and pinkie finger):


Lastly, we have "Cyclone".  This is a stunning blue-purple iridescent flash polish.  Again, this is on the sheer side, but 3e asy layers gives a decent amount of coverage:



And here's "Cyclone" on black (pointer and middle fingers) and white (ring and pinkie fingers):

Aaah!  I love it over black!  So hypnotizing!


All 3 of these had great formulas!

  3. I haven't heard of this brand, but I'm quickly learning that there's a ton of brands out there that I haven't even known existed! While I love how these three look in the bottle, it's the last one that attracts me the most; you know how much I love those moody hues! I confess that I'm not a fan of the visible brushstrokes of 'Sunset', although I can understand why you love the colour - it's so happy! Love how you described 'Corona' as reminding you of sand (especially since us Cancerians are such beach/sand lovers, right?!) but my preferred look is when you layered it over black. Gorgeous swatches as always, my friend!

  4. I have tried this brand once but I wish I'd picked one of these. You're right, that polish does look like sand!

  7. I almost picked up a couple of these the other day, but the price was mislabeled. I have this thing where I refuse to buy things that are mislabeled or not labeled at all...I have passed up many things at RiteAide because of this pet peeve, lol.
