Chanel Peridot. Most people are familiar with Chanel Peridot. It is so unique...well, until now that O.P.I. came out with a dupe (Just Spotted The Lizard from the new Spiderman Collection). Peridot holds a special place in my heart because this is the polish that encouraged me to stop my long-time habit of picking my cuticles. I struggled with this habit for 16 years and tried so many things to make myself stop. I would pick when I was nervous, bored, driving, talking to someone, etc., and I didn't realize it until it was too late - my fingers looked horrible. I can actually look back on pictures of myself and I always have my fingers hidden. Finally, last year I told myself that if I stopped picking for 30 days, I could treat myself to Chanel Peridot. I think you can figure out what happened! I did it! I quit! Finally.... breaking a 16 year habit was soooo hard. To make a long story short, I love Peridot for so many reasons - but most of all, because it's beautiful! It varies in shades from gold to blue, to green and everywhere in between.
