CHANEL Peridot Nail Lacquer Review

Chanel Peridot Le Vernis Nail Colour has got to be my all time favourite nail polish of the year. I ran out to get it the day it was released because I knew I couldn't miss out on this chameleon of a colour.

It's a rich decadent champagne gold with a green duo chrome and depending on how the light hits it, it can look more green or more gold. It reminds me of a beetle shell, it's absolutely stunning and fits surprisingly well with almost any outfit ensemble. 
It goes on opaque in 2 coats and lasts a few days, I have found with most Chanel nail polishes though that they tend to chip quite quickly. Its also a joy to use as it drys quickly and the brush applies just the right amount of product with each stroke.
Due to its phenomenal success when it was released in August, Chanel have now made it part of their permanent line, so there is no need to worry (like I did) that it will be sold out. If you don't have this already I seriously recommend checking it out, you won't be disappointed.

£17.50 in the UK - $25.00 in the US - 20.50 in Europe

  1. So glad they made it a permanent colour. I thought i'd have to get a stockpile of them!

    Same here! thanks be unto Coco.

  3. That's a really pretty color! It looks a lot like MAC's "Mean & Green" but without the purple shimmer.

    Hey Richie, when are you making a new video? I'm dying to see your new hair!
