Chanel Le Vernis Peridot Review and Swatches

June 26, 2011

Chanel Le Vernis Nail Color in Peridot ($25 #531) has the life of the jewel after which it named.  A release for Fall 2011, this color is designed to add an intense flash of shifting color to your deep-toned winter wardrobe.  As a lover of deep, matte wools as the weather cools, I know that Peridot will be a beautiful addition to the dark colors that I wear during that season.

The color is a chameleon, changing as the light plays across the surface of the nail.  There is a strong clear metallic peridot-green-gold effect, plus the slightest blue duochrome that mixes with a metallic sparkle.  In sun:

The color is opaque in two coats–this is three in the pictures.   Each layer dries in about 2-3 minutes.  In shade:

One last:

The color is dramatic and unusual. It’s going to look epic if you love to wear black.  For me, this is spectacular. If you love it, you’ll need a backup.

    Since Peridot’s release, I’ve seen pictures of this unusual and dramatic color on a lot of different skin tones, but I must say that on you it has been by far the most striking. The hint of green plays against the pink in your light skin tone to striking effect, Amy. And, yes, worn with black it will be seriously epic!
