Chanel: Peridot

I think y'all were most excited to see Peridot when I vlogged about buying it. So here it is!

Such an AMAZING color. And one I know I will wear a lot this fall. I needed three coats because the formula is just a little watery. I don't know that you can apply this polish without having some visible brush strokes. That's just the type of finish this polish has. I don't mind that. I think if the polish is pretty, I'm happy and I don't really care if I can see brush stokes. I think I'm also trying to find every good thing about this polish because of the hefty price tag. That's really not hard though, because I'm in love! Gold and green go really well together, and I don't think it looks bad against my skin tone. I'm thinking I'll wear this on my birthday, too. ;)

So what do y'all think? Has anyone else splurged on Peridot or any other Chanel or high end polish? Let me know!

Thanks for reading! :)

I have a similar color but it's not Chanel. I really like green/golds though. This one is so pretty! Thanks for sharing. :D

So jealous! I've never felt this compelled to buy a Chanel before but this is the last straw--I've seen so many swatches and yours just sealed the deal for me! I need this!

Veronica- I wish it wasn't so expensive, too. But it was well worth it!

Kay- What's the similar polish? I'm really excited to see it! But then I might regret getting this one- haha!

Cat- Glad I could persuade you to get it! :)

Emily- Oooh! Good time to break out Paradoxal! Oh! haha. Country music is so good. I'm sorry it's underrated where you are!

Audrey L.- Thank you! Yeah, nothing wrong with it at all! :)

imfeelingnail-venturous- Thank you! :)

The color I was thinking of is Revlon's Gold Coin. Do you have that one? If not, I can post some swatches on my blog. It's lighter in the bottle than Peridot but looks similar on the nail. At least to me. But I could be wrong. Peridot is definitely greener.

Olivia C. said...

Kay- I don't have that. Can you post it? That would be awesome, I really wanna see it! :)

Loooooooove Peridot, I was so excited when I finally got it! It gets tons of compliments too, it's just one of those amazing colors

Olivia C. said...

Nail Nerd- I totally agree, just amazing. :) Thanks for stopping by!

I took pics of Revlon Gold Coin this morning and put them up on my blog so you could see. In daylight, I don't think it compares to Peridot. What do you think?

Kay- Thank you so much for posting it! :)
