Twinsie Tuesday: Chanel Peridot

I'm alive!! Sorry I was gone for a few days. I've had a lot on my plate lately, so I haven't had as much time and energy for blogging as I would like. But I'm back in time for this week's Twinsie Tuesday, where we're showing the true depths of our polish addictions by sharing our biggest splurge. Mine was pretty easy to remember: Chanel Peridot!

I bought this beauty back in college, when I worked at Neiman Marcus, so I was able to use my employee discount to knock a few bucks off, but it's still the priciest polish in my stash. It also happens to be my favorite polish ever, so it was totally worth it! There are multiple dupes of Peridot now but when it first came out, its pairing of rich gold with a green and teal duochrome was very unique. Even though it's since been duplicated by other brands, Peridot is still a total stunner!

Peridot applies just as wonderfully as she looks. You do have to be a little careful with brushstrokes, but there's nothing out of the norm for a metallic polish. I used three coats here.

This is a polish that will always hold a very special place in my heart. It's a drop-dead gorgeous shade and the only Chanel polish in my collection. I hope you enjoy looking at Peridot as much as I do! :)
