China Glaze Awakening

Duochromes.  I'm not sure how I feel about them.  They seem a little juvenile, like what you'd wear when your parents drive you on a date to the movies.  That being said, I don't entirely hate China Glaze Awakening.  (Not to be confused with the China Glaze Halloween collection from this Fall, Awakening, which I'm pretty sure has nothing to do with this polish.)  This Awakening is a purple/ gold duochrome that looks purple in the shade and gold in the sun.  The color combination is rather interesting.  In the first picture you can see how purple it looks indoors.  The other pictures show more of the gold side, though the effect is more pronounced than the camera could pick up.  It was a little thin so I needed three coats.

I think on the right person this polish would be stunning, I just don't think that right person is me.  What is your take on duochromes?  Are you a fan? Did you stop wearing them after middle school?
