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:

A big thank you to Kas and George for giving away this treasure! :) 


  1. Where do I even start with this except for repeating what all the Ladies before me already said "beautiful" "gorgeous" and "wow" !
    Peridot is a lovely shade, but your stamping honed in on its essence and the little glitter bits are the perfectly delicious icing on the cake!
    You are full of inspiration!

  2. Thank you!! :) This was one of my favourite stamping manicures so far, from my work.. I'm glad you and the other girls liked it as much as I did.
