I've had China Glaze Fuschia Fanatic for months and I'm only trying it now! ;) I just felt like I needed a bright creme after all the glitter I've been sporting lately. FF did not disappoint, applying nicely in two coats. I used Max Factor Fantasy Fire as the accent finger and it is gorgeous, but a PITA to apply. I think this was 4 or 5 coats here, and still a tad sheer. Oh well. I love how CG FF complements the shimmer in MF FF.
After wearing this for a bit, I decided I wanted to try out an indie (almost) equivalent to FF - Paanduuh CCXXX. This polish is more lilac than the violet of FF, but they both share the same duochrome shimmer.
Well, I was pretty disappointed. As you can see in the following picture, you can barely see the shimmer on top of FF. :(
Not only could you barely see the shimmer, the polish was pricey, the maker took forever to make and ship this one tiny bottle of polish, blamed her studies (fine, I understand you are busy, but write that on your site, then!), and then shipped the polish with a wonky brush. I received the replacement in much better time, fortunately. I personally wouldn't buy a Paanduuh polish again, but that is just me. Maybe you have had/will have a better experience. Behold the disappointing CCXXX:
