This is a gorgeous color. However, as with some Chanel Le Vernis, the color has more shimmer in the bottle. On nails, it looks 'duller' and darker, with shimmer being the most pronounced on either flash or bright light.
|OPI Midnight in Moscow with Flash|
OPI's formula is thinner, so I equate one coat of Chanel to two coats of OPI. OPI Midnight in Moscow (along with the whole Russian Collection) is one of my all time favorites. It is similar blackened burgundy with grayish-black base and red-purple-brown micro-shimmer.
In regular light (or without flash) these two shades look identical. With flash, Strong has cooler purple shimmer, whereas Midnight in Moscow has warmer red-plum shimmer. Both have dark gray-black as a base color, both are shimmery with gorgeous micro-shimmer.Strong is not unique or groundbreaking by any means, but it is a beautiful winter shade that will glisten on your nails.
Does Strong remind you of any nail polishes?
