Chanel Peridot Nail Colour Swatches


When I first laid eyes on this polish, I knew I fell in love and when I first swatched it, I knew I had to have it. I've never been this excited or impressed by a nail polish before. Sure I have a few that I really love but these Chanel polishes had me at hello, lol. If I start to sound infatuated, you know I'm in love.
Peridot is another unique and stunning shade Chanel created for their fall 2011 collection, which is limited edition. With that said, this won't be around forever.
The formula is very pigmented and smooth. When I swatched the color on my nails, I was instantly blown away! The color is a gorgeous gold with olive and green undertone. The color is very shimmery but it doesn't just stop there. There is so much depth and dimension in this polish in part due do the somewhat light green duo-chrome. If you look at my swatches you can see that the light green just "glows" along the edge of my nails. What a freaking amazing effect! I swear, I can't take my eyes off of it. I'm actually very surprised my camera did such a great job at capturing its beauty.
This polish has all the qualities you'd want in a polish....amazing color pay off and outstanding quality. Well worth the price in my opinion. Speaking of price, this is the first time I've ever paid this much on a single nail polish. It was hard at first but I knew wouldn't be able to get over it if I had gone home without it. Had I only seen pictures of it, I would most likely just lust for it but seeing in person was a total different experience.

I dare you to swatch it on your nails and tell me you did not like it one bit. I've never been this impressed and I am not usually impressed easily. Ok, enough said...enjoy the show and let me know if this polish managed to work its magic on you.

So...I wanna know what you think now? Love it or leave it? Just pretend you like it even if you don't or you'll crap my mood, lol.

  1. I try to avoid looking at their polishes in person...let alone swatche them.. as I know I will fall in love and then have to throw down the large sum of money for them (large sum for a polish anyway).. so I try not to tempt myself...this is hard enough, seeing your images! LOL

  4. Lyndsay, the moment I swatched them, I was sold! LOL yea very bad idea if you dont want to spend that kinda money. Oh well...I don't regret it.

    Kis, I have that polish too and it's very nice although far from being a dupe of Peridot. It falls within the same color family but as far as formula and texture, to me there is a huge difference between the two. Otherwise, I wouldn't have bought it if they were close enough to be considered dupes.
