Chanel Peridot 531, Illusions d'Ombre coll. swatches - Chanel Saturday

Today it's a new Chanel Saturday together with my friend Elena from PicturedTinsel!
Chanel Peridot 531 was first released in the fall of 2011 Illusions d'Ombre coll.: Quartz 525, Graphite 529 and Peridot 531 (now permanent).
It is a polish with a long number of dupes, I only own one called Absolute Nails Fireworks (Douglas in Germany).
When I had the chance to buy this previously owned and slightly used original, I took it, and while I'm fascinated by it, I'm not really sure  if I'm going to wear it much. But I do enjoy to look at it!
I will let the photos speak for themselves.
Peridot is shown in 2 coats and without a top coat, you have to be careful to avoid brush strokes, I did my best, but the result could have been better, and a top coat would have been a good idea.
Later today I'm showing you Mimosa and tomorrow I'll show you Kaleidoscope and Rouge Moiré.
I dag er det igen Chanel Saturday sammen med min veninde Elena fra PicturedTinsel.
Chanel Peridot så vi første gang i Illusions d'Ombre kollektionen i efteråret 2011 sammen med Quartz 525, Graphite 529 og Peridot 531 (nu permanent).
Det er en lak med en utrolig masse efterligninger, såkaldte "dupes". Selv har jeg kun en, nemlig Absolute Nails Fireworks (Douglas i Tyskland).
Så da jeg kunne købe den ægte vare i let brugt stand slog jeg til, og selvom jeg er fascineret af den, er jeg ikke sikker på, at jeg kommer til at bruge den så meget. Men jeg elsker at se på den, og jeg vil lade billederne tale for sig selv.
Peridot er vist i to lag og skal lægges med omhu for at undgå penselstrøg, jeg gjorde mig bedste. En top lak ville have givet et mere perfekt resultat, men den er her vist uden.
Senere i dag viser jeg Mimosa og i morgen kommer Kaleidoscope og Rouge Moiré.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
What do you think of Peridot?
Do you own it or any of the many dupes...?
I wonder what Elena is showing us today, go and have a look at PicturedTinsel!
Check in later today and tomorrow to see more Chanel swatches...
Hvad synes du om Peridot!
Har du selv Peridot eller en af de mange efterligninger...?
Gad vide hvad Elena har at vise os i dag - tag et kig på PicturedTinsel!
Jeg har flere Chanel swatches igen senere i dag og i morgen...

  1. It's a very beautiful polish, no wonder that so many companies have made dupes of it. I have two dupes myself: One from Catrice and one from Golden Rose. It's not my colour at all - so I haven't worn any of them.

    1. I agree it is very beautiful - but a bit demanding on the nails - but I love to look at the bottle hahaha

  2. Well, Peridot and me, that's some kind of hate-love. I love the colour, but I hate it, for it doesn't match at all with my skin-tone.

    Kind regards,
    Elena

  4. I do love this polish, but it's so expensive! I have tried OPI Just Spotted The Lizard, which seems pretty dupey

    1. I think Peridot and Chanel Paradoxal probably are the polishes with most dupes ever - so it's possible to find dupes for sure :)
      I bought mine as a pre-owned, and that cuts a huge lump of the price :)

  7. It looks gorgeous on you, i still can't get used to this kind of color on my nails. I tried genius in a bottle of Catrice but felt like an alien. ;-)
