Well, we've all seen it, read reviews about it, some people have lusted after it - Chanel Peridot. I have to be completely honest; I like the look of it in the bottle, the formula is lovely and smooth, but the colour? I don't know, the colour just doesn't suit my skin complexion. But even though I didn't hold my breath waiting for the release of this polish, I can understand why others did - it is very pretty. It just isn't me :( I know, seems blasphemous doesn't it? A duochrome that doesn't make me swoon.
But you know what it did do though! It gave me an excellent opportunity to procrastinate before studying for an upcoming uni exam. I decided to amp up Peridot and turn it into something sparkly with attitude.
This is two coats of Peridot, konad plate 70 with Black konad polish - then strategically placed gold glitter specks which I purchased from Born Pretty (told you I was procrastinating!)
To top it off, obviously it needed top coat so I opted again for the Out the Door Hologram topcoat. I really love this topcoat, it's just so versatile and easy to apply.
I've got to say, taking photo's to show this mani was a freaking nightmare. Because it is so metallic and reflective, light just kept beaming off it causing my camera to almost have a meltdown. Anyway, it's something different :)
