Chanel Peridot




I don't usually go out of my way to buy nail polish that is umm pricey. Especially when I'm buying it at full retail price but when I saw pictures of this one online I knew I was going to have to hunt this one down. And a hunt it was! When I first tried to buy it and they didn't have it the lady at the Chanel counter was like overly dramatic and said "uhhhh it's CHANEL baby of course you'll be back" heh the way she said it I swear she sounded like she had a few to many to drink! At 26 and some change after taxes I am glad I broke down and bought it because this baby is worth every penny I spent on her. After all "It's Chanel"(hahahah)! One little bottle so much joy!
Okay application wise this one was pretty good I did not have issues with it being streaky but maybe a little thicker than I would have liked in fact next time I ever use this I'll add a few drops of a thinner. This was opaque in two coats but I used three. Compared to the other Chanels I have this was seemed like a much better formula. I've been wearing it now for almost 3 days and I haven't had any issues with chipping. Overall this is a lovely duo-chrome that will look good in any nail polish collection. She constantly changes colors on the nail and does not disappoint. 

I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking!







This is the best representation of what it looks like most of the time. 




While I was talking a shower I just loved how the water droplets looked on the nail so I had to recreate it. hah water herpes!
This is the only picture where I used the flash. The flash transforms it into an interesting rustic golden color but this color does not really appear on the nail normally, just with the flash.

  8. Was the only one of the 3 in this fall Chanel collection I did not buy. I like it a lot but felt it would not have legs in my stash and I would only wear it maybe 3 times max. When it comes to buying Chanel at that $$$, I have to think that I more than love it but will wear it at least half way through the bottle.

  9. That colour is almost killing me with its beauty. I hope it's launched in Australia soon!

  15. really i can't believe you bought the other two and didn't get this one. the other two didn't seem very unique. I know i wish i'll get a lot of wear out of this since i paid so much for it but i doubt i'll ever use it again since i have lots of other nail polish beauties just waiting to be used. : )
