Adorned Nails: Douglas Elena


Here's another polish from the Absolute Nails range by Douglas - Elena 12. I doubt very much I will be doing a side-by-side comparison on nails but I'd say it's a possible dupe of Chanel Black Pearl.


Elena 12 is gunmetal grey with blue-green tones. The formula is fine and I've got two coats on here. It does however look streaky due to its metallic finish. Elena looks for the most part gunmetal but the longer you stare at it, the more blue-green-grey it looks. It's quite fascinating when you can't decide.


Douglas Elena 12 costs just €4.95 (11ml)......which is why I won't be getting me a Black Pearl.



If you missed them, here are the other two copies polishes by Douglas already featured:
Douglas Fireworks
Douglas Maria

I'm glad you approve of this shade, rock-or-not. :)

Hee hee, an almost green one that you might want to add to your growing green collection, eh? :D

Ontzettend mooie lak. <3 Heel apart als je de kleur niet helemaal kan plaatsen.

Je hebt groot gelijk om die Chanel niet te kopen. Wie wil er nou zulke dure merken als er andere goedkopere merken zijn. En die goedkopere merken hebben hebben meer kleuren in het assortiment en ze zijn nog mooier ook. We hebben het wel over meer dan 22 euro voor een flesje. :(

Ja, tegenwoordig hebben we zoooo veel keuzes wat betreft nagellak merken/kleuren. Sowieso moet ik er heel goed over nadenken hoor als ik ooit op het punt sta om meer dan €15 neer te leggen voor een flesje nagellak. Groetjes! :)

@Shivani
So glad you like Elena, my dear! I hope you've been well. :)

The world of nail polishes is full of dupes these days. Heh heh! Well, this one looked quite subdued in the bottle but it's quite intriguing on nails. :)
