Douglas Fireworks 15. Could this be a dupe for Chanel Peridot?
The German parfumerie chain, Douglas, launched its own collection of nail polishes recently, calling the range Douglas Absolute Nails. I believe Douglas launched these much earlier in its home country, as ladies in Germany would have spotted.
I came across the collection in one of the Douglas stores here in the Netherlands just last week. The sales assistant mentioned that they were new arrivals, just after the New Year. The main collection consists of twelve polishes and several seem to mirror some of Chanel's range of nail polishes. There were another three polishes on display, separate from the main display, and I wonder if these three may be limited editions. This Douglas Fireworks was one of the three.
Douglas Fireworks is an antique gold / green duochrome, with the antique gold a lot more prominent than the green. You'll see also flashes of aqua in the bottle. I applied two coats here and as is expected of metallic polishes, the finish looks streaky.
The Douglas Absolute Nails polishes have a fairly broad brush (that's good!) and the bottles also come complete with double caps. Each retails for €4.95 (11ml) which is about one-quarter the price of Chanel's (13ml).
