Another non-blue post! °____________°
Uhm, does this need some kind of introduction?
If you are here, I don't think so :D
Just one note: I HATE Sephora. I never buy there, salegirls are awfully annoying, they're not the best make-up advisors you could find around (from what I read on blogs, I usually don't ask for help), waiting for payments at cash desks is eternal and their products are so priced compared to the quality...
But I cannot spend €20 and more on a single bottle of nailpolish (even if price per gram of Sephora isn't so far from the price per gram of a Chanel), plus I have to admit "Péridot" came out after "Diving in Malaysia", so... Here it is :>
Sorry for the pics bombing, this shade has many faces:
Bottle shots, I don't know why picture is resized, it never happened before and I made it 600px of width as usual...
I love it because it changes with every movement of the hand!
Under an artificial light it becomes warmer, bronze-like, really a jewel tone!
Sometimes it has this warm gold tone even in daylight, but I didn't succeed in capture it...
In the sun is pure gold, but you can still notice it's not plain!
I wouldn't wear a plain gold, or a plain bronze, or a plain pale green metallic polish, but this one is ALL these colours together, so it went straight into my favourites!
It's just like the "Old Gold" pigment from MAC, which I own and it's obviously in my top 3 colours <3
And what about this olive green side? *_*
I had this on for an entire week, and it lasted so well, just tipwear and a couple of tiny chips (my fault).
Brush is perfect, it gives you a perfectly rounded border almost without need of retouch.
These are three coats: I applied two coats and wore it for a day, then I added another coat, because I noticed some bald spots, but we're all crazy nailpolish ladies, and no one else would see them in reality :D
In conclusion, I hate to say it, but Sephora did a good job on this; price per gram of "Diving in Malaysia" isn't so far from the Chanel's price, but if you don't want to puke €21, €22 on "Péridot", go with Sephora: great colour, formula, brush and staying power.
Have a nice day/night/whatever and thanks for your attention ;¬)
