I am definitely a sucker for limited edition beauty products, so when I was sent Australis Nail Colour Limited Edition 1 to check out, I was mad excited.

Australis nail polish

Apologies for the smudged middle finger…

Taking a flattering photo to reflect the awesome shimmer of this limited edition nail colour was near impossible. In the above photo, the colour looks a bit dull and matte but it’s not!!  Here’s a better photo :-

Australis nail polish shimmer

Australis Nail Colour Limited Edition 1 is duochrome.  Depending on the light and the angle you look at it, it may appear almost brownish-grey but then when the light hits the right spots, the deep violet shimmer shines through.  It’s a beautiful colour and really suits my skintone.  A perfect colour for autumn in Melbourne.

But it is limited edition, so don’t delay and get it ASAP!!

UPDATE :  Lilit at Makeup and Macaroons has commented that this is a potential dupe of Chanel Paradoxal.  Lipglossing has this colour and from swatches, it certainly seems very similar.

    I love that colour! I think it’s a bit like a dupe of Chanel Paradoxal, minus the hefty pricetag!
