Chanel Graphite Nail Colour Swatches

Hi everyone,

I'm really excited to show you swatches of my new Chanel Fall 2011 nail polish. It is now available and limited edition so if you like it get it while you can!

Graphite is a beautiful silvery/pewter gray. It has lots of green, gold, and silver shimmers/micro glitters. This polish didn't photograph as well as Peridot and the pictures I took really doesn't do it justice. You have to see this one in person in order to really appreciate its beauty. The color of this polish was created to mimic the look of the stone graphite, hence the name graphite.
As far as the formula goes, it's quite pigmented and you can get a nice opaque and even application in 2 coats. It applies like a dream and dries fairly quick.
The brush is round and just the perfect size. It holds and distribute the nail color very well. As far as how long this will last on your nails, I can't comment on it since I have not tested it for that.
The quality and color of this polish is outstanding! Something you would expect from a $25.00 nail polish. The price is probably the only con and never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would spend this much on a polish until recently.

I've taken several pictures from different angle and lighting so you can see the nuance in different settings.

Indoor, natural light 

 Indoor, natural light - This is the most accurate picture that I was able to take. The shimmers are a lot more reflective and sparkly in person.

Indoor, artificial light

So what do you think of this color? Like I said earlier, it looks a lot pettier in person. With flash, it reflects too much light and doesn't look as pretty on the picture. Because I use the macro setting on my camera, it diminishes the way the shimmer sparkles.
It's quite a stunning and unique color and Chanel is known for that. Even if you don't plan to buy this, just stop by the counter and check it out. You'll be glad you did :). It's free to look and even swatch it on your nails! lol.
