NOTD: China Glaze Channelesque

A while ago I managed to get my paws on some discontinued shades I had been lemming. Here's one of them, the gorgeous China Glaze Channelesque. I'm not sure what to call this colour. Purple'ish taupe? Taupe'ish purple? Super dusty, toned down purple? It's like a more purple version of OPI YDKJ. It's gorgeous none the less, I love these murky, dusty, mushroomy (is that even a word?) colours. They have a special place in my heart.

I love this color, been wearing it for almost 3 days now which is super unusual, I normally get bored in less than 24 hours and feel the need to change my polish colour. There's no chips or tipwear and would keep wearing if it wasn't for the fact I have to do my new years manicure tonight after work. As most China Glazes the application was great, took 2 coats to get it opaque. It was really late when I applied this so I was a little sloppy and some got stuck in my cuticles and it was surprisingly hard to remove. Not sure why that is, but I couldn't get it all off as you can see in the pictures. Very odd for such a light color, maybe it's because my cuticles were dry after all the swatching and removing I had been doing right before. We'll have to see how it goes tonight when I'm removing it all. Anyway, I love this color. And if you as me like muddy colours and find this somewhere, pick it up! It has been discountinued for quite a bit now but there's still places online to buy it.

That's such a beautiful colour! Shame it's discontinued though. May just have to google it to see if I can find one

Following the Norman conquest of England (1066–1071), Norwich was radically redesigned. Norwich Cathedral was built immediately to the east of Tombland and much of the old town to the southwest of Tombland was cleared for the motte of Norwich Castle
