My Parisian shopping spree started with Chanel's Peridot! I have had my eye on this for a while, but not actually seen it in a shop in person - the minute I did, I just had to have it!

This is two coats, plus one coat of Sally Hansen Insta Dri.

The formula wasn't fantastic - it's taken ages to dry properly, even with my Sally Hansen Insta Dri, and it's still made a couple of tiny dents on some nails. Still, that could have been me being too impatient and not careful enough. But the colour is beautiful, and it changes constantly in different lights, and I love it. 


  1. Shiny! I like it lots. Hope you had a lovely time in Paree. :D

  2. Thanks - it's pretty isn't it? I am finding the colour changes quite fascinating, and have to keep wiggling my fingers around.

    Paree was lovely, we walked LOTS and ate lots, it was fab.

  3. This! This is what my silly, cheap €1 Spanish polish reminds me of! (Portuguese nail blog with swatches)

    1. Aw, that page doesn't exist! But yes, there are lots of Peridot dupes out there. I love Peridot though.

    2. I got my own little dupe yesterday, OPIs "Just Spotted The Lizard". =)

    3. I've seen that on blogs, it does look very similar!


I absolutely love comments! But please don't spam me with links to your sales website here!.

If you have a blog that you'd like me to check out, then I'm more than happy to do so - just drop me an email. Thanks!
