Chanel Péridot

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

And here it is, my first Chanel polish ever, the golden/green duochrome Péridot. Kicks has been having a 20% sale on nail polishes so I just couldn’t help but bringing this one home with me.

I applied three thin coats with Seche Vite on top, it was pretty easy to maneuver, though I did get some faint brush strokes. It would probably have gone better if I had seen what I was doing in the poor lighting.

It’s not easy photographing without any natural light, but I’ve tried my best to show the different faces of this polish. The colors go from a reddish gold, paler gold, to green, and last to a blue/teal shade. First some photos without flash, in indoor lighting:

Yes, there’s a kitty hair hiding in the photos, please ignore it if you find it =)

A bit blurry photo, but you can see a bit more of the green shade.

And the next two photos are with flash under my desk lamp:

The next photo is without flash, also under the desk lamp. I think I managed to capture the blue shade pretty well here, it’s only seen in more extreme angles:

And last, a photo I just took in the kitchen:

I hope you can excuse the photo spam of poor quality.

I also wanted to try and film it, I don’t know if it’s of any use or just crappy. The lighting is bad and the autofocus is far from perfect for filming, but at least you can see the color shifting:

Ooops, I forgot to edit out the sound! Well, it’s my first YouTube upload so I’m just a total noob at this thing =)

I just couldn’t resist any longer..

It took several blog posts before I gave in to this duochrome beauty, but now it’s finally in my hands:
