I've read that Models Own Purple Grey is a pretty good dupe of Chanel Paradoxal but without the shimmer. I don't have much interest in Chanel because the price is a bit out there. I'm sure if I could find them on sale I would have a few of them but that doesn't happen. So I put on Models Own Purple Grey and added CND Amethyst Sparkle and I was pleased.
I really like the CND effects and I'm finding that I want more of them. They are fun to play with and one coat is enough to give a really great pop of shimmer.
This is an older photo but I found it while cleaning up my hard drive.
