Ludurana’s Turquesa-Red (Turquoise-Red)

I don't know for sure that I'd call this polish a duochrome. More like a duotone: there's a base color, and a complementary (or contrasting) top effect-color. Still, duochrome or duotone, it's a pretty combination! The base is very similar to Zoya's Jo, but a bit cooler. And the top complementary pink iridescent shimmer makes the base color lean that much more toward purple.

Application was smooth, but this - like all the polishes in the Duochrome collection - is a little bit sheer. You either need to wear this on top of another color, or need to apply at least three coats for fully opaque coverage. There were some faintly visible brushstrokes; and I got a little overeager and caused some minor bubbling on one finger as well as a bit of pulling when I tried to apply a third coat before the second was fully dry.
