It's Chanel, darling.

*Warning: This post is pic heavy (how could it not be lol?)

I was planning on saving this post for tomorrow.. but I just hit 200 followers!!! :D So I couldn't help myself.. besides, I'm wearing Chanel, darling! ;)

I finished this mani about 20min ago, took photos, uploaded them, and here we are. This polish is fabulous.. and I was incredibly lucky to win it in Varnished Valkyrie's giveaway! How awesome is that?!

This is one of those polishes you can't take your eyes off of. I think this is one of my favourite stamping manicures so far too :) So without further ado I give you... Chanel Péridot! (swatches at the bottom)

I used 2 coats of Chanel Péridot.
Stamped with Finger Paints black expressionism and BM-210. 
The added sparkle is L.A.Colors Nail Art Deco silver glitter.
And I topped it all off with 2 coats of Seche Vite.

As part of my giveaway I asked all of you lovely readers what things you would like to see on my blog, and a few people mentioned swatches. What better polish to start with? I'm not a big fan of swatch posts myself, when I browse blogs I'm usually looking for unique nail art or stamping. However, I will start swatching various polishes from now on, but they will be swatches of my base-coats used in my regular nail art posts. I will start with today... here are a few swatches of the lovely Chanel Péridot:
