N.O.T.D: Chanel Peridot Review + Swatches

Being Chanel, the makers can create a strange colour concoction and pretty much whatever it is, as long as its Chanel it will instantly come into fashion and be copied by other, not always low end brands. 

I was so excited when i received this package in the mail only to be disappointed by a streaky, thin and easy to chip formula. When applied this colour very easily goes streaky. One thing I do have to say though, as always with a Chanel polish is that the drying time is significantly faster than that of most other brands such as OPI or essie. 

This colour actually looks way nicer in the bottle than it does on the nails, as the pretty blue tone is almost completely lost, and it turns into more of a cross between gold and green. This is the sort of nail polish that you NEED to wear a base coat with because the way the shimmer is formulated it emphasizes every single little imperfection in the way you have applied it, or on the nail. 

Peridot in the bottle, you can see the blue toned areas on the outer edges. 
 According to other blogs I have read, this colour looks amazing when a matte topcoat is applied to it, I am yet to try this out, but will update you on what I think when I finally get round to it. 
 If you are looking for a colour like this i'd say save your money and go for a dupe from a cheaper brand such as nails inc or essie. 

Chanel Nail Lacquers are available from Chanel counters and stores worldwide
