China Glaze No Plain Jane

I was super excited when I heard that China Glaze was coming out with a line of duochromes but I wondered how they would hold up.  The New Bohemian collection came out this month and sadly, I wasn't super awesome happy with several of them.  This is one of those.  No Plain Jane is a light purple with a brownish/orange duochrome that you can see a bit on the sides of the bottle.  Also, you'll notice my cap looks weird... my bottle wasn't closed tightly in shipping and it leaked out onto the bottle.  I took acetone to clean it up and it also stripped the silver coating on the lid.

For this manicure, I used a base of Poshe, 2 coats of polish and a top of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.  While this is a pretty color, it didn't do what I wanted.

Purple?  Great!  Duochrome?  No!  I just don't see it.

even in the shade - lovely purple but where's my gold?  I even tried holding my nails at a crazy odd angle, but nada.

Here's some indirect sun - maaaaaaaybe a little duochrome peeking through here.  Maybe.

With the flash?  Forget it.  I'm out like whoa.  (I also need sleep.)  So pretty purple - deal.  Duochrome, no Jane.  No.  Sad Krystal.
