China Glaze Jungle Queen versus Chanel Paradoxal

I made a quick comparison of China Glaze Jungle Queen (JQ) and Chanel Paradoxal (P). They are both two coats on the picture below. For me these are not dupes, JQ is slightly darker. I also found JQ much better to apply so I really recommend it. It is a great polish and much cheaper than Chanel of course :) Which one do you like more?

  3. Can you do a comparison of JQ to Revlon's Perplex (which is suppose to be a dupe of Paradoxal)?

  5. First I wasn't that excited about the On Safari Collection, but I had been wanting to get my hands on Paradoxal for a long time. I just never could afford it. Thanks to your comparison, I will be getting Jungle Queen! ^_^ It's close enough to Paradoxal and looks so pretty - at least on you!

  6. They look same to me. I'd never buy Chanel polish because I think they are a bit overrated, but China Glaze is affordable and I might buy Jungle Queen as the colour seems to be very pretty.

  7. I'd definitely get Jungle Queen over Paradoxal. It's way cheaper and I can only tell a slight difference between the two.

  9. As they look very similar and as I have Paradoxal, I choose Chanel :) !
    I just wish that the purple shimmer could be more visible on the nails.

  11. Thanks for this comparison, it's part of the reason I enjoy the blog so much. My friends are great but they don't get my obsession, to them a purple nail varnish is just a purple nail varnish :) its nice to have people who understand, so thank you! I need Jungle Queen...and Exotic Encounters...and Elephant Walk ;)

  17. I must be getting ready for fall because as much as I've loved all the bright, pretty colours of the spring/summer collections, these deep, rich shades are *really* appealing to me. Plus, I'm a sucker for purple/grey shades.

    Actually, if you hadn't mentioned JQ being darker I wouldn't have even noticed. Nice job, China Glaze! ;)

  18. I love the color of Chanel Paradoxal but can't justify the price, so I love when a dupe is found. I also found an Australian brand called Ulta3 that has a dupe of Paradoxal called 'twilight fever'.
