I know you've seen these polishes a million times already, but have you seen them together? This was a mani that surged out of sheer excitement. I was so excited when I received these two polishes in the mail that I was indecisive about which one to wear first, so I wore them both!! These are my first two Chanel nail polishes, so please excuse my lack of knowledge. Before I received these polishes I was worried about application because of the huge handle the brush had, or so I thought.
However, when I first attempted to open one of these nail polishes, the top came off! I must admit that my heart sank a little because I thought I had wrecked one of my first ever, Chanel nail polishes. I was quickly reassured that this wasn't the case, as the top of the smaller cap had Chanel's logo as well. So, then I was ooh-ing and ah-ing over the genial design Chanel had come up with for these bottles.
The application was awesome. They both applied flawlessly. I used three coats on all fingers topped with Diamond Dry topcoat. This is a sun picture.
This is a weirdish angle, but I was trying to capture the green duochromeness in Peridot. This is a shade picture.
Another shade picture. This was my favorite picture because it shows the different shades in Peridot.
Here is Graphite with a Peridot accent. I have heard people compare this to other colors such as OPI Lucertainly Look Marvelous, but in my opion this beautiful color has no dupe.
Here's a sun picture, but it doesn't depict the true color of Graphite. It does however, show how sparkly it is! The picture above is a lot closer to the color in real life, which is a goldish silverish foily kind of color.
I totally loved my first experience with my first Chanel nail polishes. The only thing that is that I somehow felt like I should go around telling people I was wearing Chanel nail polish. It's a little silly lol, but I just wanted be able to tell everyone how awesome these polishes were. At least, here in my blog I get to do that. ^_^
