Anyone that knows me, knows about my unusual love for nail polish. I own entirely too much of it, so much so, that I will probably never wear it all because I'm always buying more. :)
So, since my blog is not only about my family, but about how I keep my sanity in this testosterone heavy house I'm going to take advantage of this platform to talk about my obsession! I want to use Mani Monday to show you about the latest nail polish I'm wearing...maybe it'll help you decide whether or not to pick up that color you've been thinking about or inspire you to try something new.
I recently picked up Chanel Peridot. It's part of the Illusions d'Ombres Fall 2011 Collection. I got mine at Macy's, but it's available at any store that sells Chanel cosmetics. It's limited edition, so you'd want to pick it up soon. I normally don't buy Chanel polish because it's pretty expensive, plus I've always had a problem with it chipping quickly. But, with that being said, once and awhile they come out with a color that I just can't resist. Once I saw it on a Scrangie's blog (a nail polish blog that I sometimes read) I knew I had to have it.
Peridot is a duochrome, which means that it flashes different colors depending on the angle, lighting...etc. It's base is green, but you also see gold and blue at times. It's really beautiful. I use Instant Artificial as a base coat China Glaze's Fast Forward fast dry top coat (you can pick both of these up at Sally's).
It's really pretty, isn't it? Also, the ultimate bonus...it's lasted 5 days so far with NO CHIPS. This is a record for me with Chanel polish.
