Chanel Peridot w/ Graphite accent & Graphite w/ Peridot accent

 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. ^_^


  1. Wow those are simply stunning! I love how shiny they are. And they're so pretty that I'm sure people will stop to ask you what you have on your nails, and you'll be able to tell them that you're wearing Chanel polish anyway (;

  2. You're so right! People did notice Peridot a lot when I wore it, but I didn't brag lol. I just said thanks, but compliments are always great!
