Chanel Peridot

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.

  1. Chanel Peridot is definitely stunning! My wallet will have to settle for the dupe whenever it comes out though :-)

    1. Yes, this is my only Chanel and I can justify it because it helped me with my cuticle picking problem - otherwise, the dupe would be just fine for me. They look dead on in the reviews online.

  2. This is one of my all time favorite polishes! And actually the OPI is not a perfect dupe in real life (more brush strokes and not as intense of a color shift in the OPI) but there are a few other more spot on dupes out there!

    1. Good idea. I enjoy seeing a Chanel polish in my collection and it means something to me, but I am a big fan of dupes. I always wanted the Deborah Lippmann Candy Shop but heard about the Claire's dupe and picked that one up. I keep wondering if the DL is better because I'm not very happy with the Claire's...
