Here are the swatches of two of Chanel’s offerings for fall 2011. I received Graphite and Peridot as birthday gifts from C (thank you!).
I won’t try to describe them because of my lack of vocabulary when it comes to describing colours, but they are both very pretty. I’ve included some additional shots of Peridot from different angles because it’s such a gorgeous duo-chrome.
Both apply flawlessly and the formulas were very easy to work with, but Peridot streaked a little. Graphite might look like glitter polish, but is extremely smooth and also removed very easily. I used these on top of Coffret D’or nail base and under Dior Top Coat.
These will probably be my very last nail polishes for the year. I am hoping that I won’t be purchasing any of the holiday stuff… I am looking at getting Rouge Carat (see swatches here), but from Chanel I am just really lemming after Empire (swatches here). Soon you’ll see if I’ve succeeded at keeping to my list.
