Chanel Peridot - Review and Swatches


I know you have already seen this polish a hundred times. If it is boring please wait for my next post :) For me this was the most expensive polish of this year so I will make this post worth it! Most times I can´t justify so much money for one polish. Well my local Sephora had a 20% sale so I couldn't wait longer and bought Chanel Peridot from this year´s fall collection. Here are my swatches:


Peridot is a beautiful duochrome of green and gold. It shines like crazy as you can see on my pictures which are without sun or flash. I still can´t believe I bought a green polish for so much money! Me? A purple lover that doesn't like green much :) But I just couldn't resist, it is gorgeous:


I love the way it changes depending on what angle you look at it...


I tried to find a dupe in my collection but already knew that I have nothing like this (which was one of the reasons why I justified the price for this polish). The closest I could get was China Glaze Peace On Earth (POE) but they are very different as you can see on this comparison:


I have to admit that I wasn't sure about this polish when I bought it and I was a bit scared I wouldn't like it. But the moment I painted it on my nails, I fell in love! What do you think about Peridot? Must have or a overhyped polish?

  2. Tak overhyped možná tahle kolekce trošku je, ale nemůžu si přestat koukat na nehty a stále mi v hlavě šrotuje Graphite, ale asi koupím spíš nějakej dupe :-)

  3. Za mě nee... Není vyloženě špatnej, ten efekt je dokonce moc pěknej, ale základová barva není zrovna můj šálek čaje a u tak drahýho laku netoleruju viditelné taky štětečkem.

  4. Diving in malaysia from Sephora is a perfect dupe for Peridot ;) It's gorgeous though...

  8. I love Peridot! And I had the same feeling as you, was so scared that I wouldn´t like it. But it´s gorgeous!

  9. mě se líbí moc, ale spíš bych si počkala na dupe.. i s 20% slevou je pořád moc drahej, ale doufám, že se tady jedná o poměr kvalita/značka.. jak dlouho ti vydržel bez odloupnutí?

  10. I really don't like it. It looks good on your nails, but I don't like that goldish tone, and it is streaky as hell.

  11. I think this nail polish is really gorgeous, and it is definitely a must have but for those who don't have it (like me) I also understand it 'cause it's ridiculously expensive. Sorry, brands, quality, whatsoever, there is no valid reason for a nail polish to cost above 10€ (and 10 is already very expensive in my opinion!). But anyways, I saw a comparison on a blog (My little world of polish by Lily nail) where a Sephora nail polish was a pretty close dupe for Peridot :)

  12. So pretty! You make it look so easy putting on nail polish. I always screw up. Lol.

  13. So pretty! And not to sound creepy, but I love your nails! haha!

  14. I think it's a shade I'll end up loving it once I have it on.

  15. Even if I've seen a polish many times, I always enjoy your swatches!!!

  17. I do agree that it looks good on you, but definitely not a fan of golden colors. :)

  18. I don't normally like greens (say the woman who bought half the Nubar Green limited edition line lol) But this IS PRETTY. If I could find the Sephora dupe, I'd get that, but it's a HTF.

    We all know polish lasts forever or just about ;) I would probably buy this and use it for "special occasions" like my Clarins 230 (holy cats talk about $$).

    BEAUTIFUL nails as always :)

  20. i am not into green or gold polishes but i bought this one. it's the most expensive nail polish i've ever bought. i like it more everytime i look at it, i just can't stop staring at my own nails now.i find it awesome that someone pointed out that it was chanel right away...it's worth it.

  21. I love how this polish looks in the bottle with green just at the edges. But on the nails it's completely different as nails are not flat, so the nice look gets lost I think. It still looks cute on you!

  22. This polish is so beautiful! But it is also really expensive. Thank you for the beautiful swatches.
