Chanel 'Peridot'

As I promised, here is my new Chanel polish~ ♥

Chanel Peridot is a metallic gold that has a green duo-chrome. The duo-chrome is most visible in the bottle, but it is still visible on the nails.

Price and Availability
Retails for $25. You can purchase this at Chanel, any store that has a Chanel counter, but I purchased mine on

This is a very opaque color, which surprised me since most Chanel polishes I have tried are rather sheer. At first, this applied a little streaky like many other metallic polishes. But once it dried, there was hardly any streaks. One coat gives complete opacity, but two coats allows for the duo-chrome to be more visible. The application of this was incredibly easy! It was opaque, smooth, not streaky, AND is also dried quickly. I am so impressed with this polish!

You can see a little of the green duo chrome on the sides of my nails

Here, the polish changes to a chartreuse gold. 

The green color was hard to capture because of the lighting, but here you can see it is slightly more green.
I am really glad I decided to purchase this color. This is only my second Chanel polish and I am very happy with both.
This is a unique color, which I do not have a dupe for in my collection.
It is everything I look for in a nail polish: color, formula, and chic packaging.
Well I guess the price is not part of the bargain, but for a nail polish addict like myself, it was well worth it.

Rating: 4.5/5 (The price is the only negative part of this polish)
Recommend: Yes! For those who love polishes and for those who love Chanel~
