Another Fall Polish Offering: Chanel Graphite

After the fanfare of ‘Peridot’ last week, I just can’t get up the same excitement for another of Chanel’s Fall polish releases – it’s sparkly gunmetal shade, Graphite.  It IS beautiful, without a doubt – the shimmer is absolutely intense, probably the most in any polish I own.  It’s got so much depth and uniqueness and is really striking, like nothing I own or have seen before.  But I didn’t find myself ogling Graphite like I did Peridot.  It’s really not fair to compare them, because it’s apples to oranges.  So definitely give this color a go if you like silvery shades and are into it’s beautiful shimmer.  You won’t regret it!!! (but if it’s a choice between Peridot and Graphite…you know which one to choose :P).

Behold:This photo showcases the super-sparkly nature of Graphite…it’s really something else!My nails in these swatches are crazy long…you can’t tell because it just looks like regular nails in swatches, but the length was borderline crazy-long for me, I felt somewhat uncomfortable.  I was only able to wear Graphite for two days before I had to take it off just so I could trim my nails!  I just prefer a more reasonable length.Pretty, right??  I definitely think I’ll get some good use out of this shade, though I think someone with a cooler skintone than mine would rock it out better. This is two coats, with base and top coat.  Chanel polishes retail for $27 here in Canada.

What are your thoughts on this polish? 

Off to relax for a bit now!  It was another busy weekend, and I didn’t manage to catch up on any sleep…but I’m off tomorrow so I’ll be making up for it in a big way then :)

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

      Thanks Olivia! They do, don’t they? They look good with almost anything too! It’s a great way to spice up your look without going overboard :)

    I love Graphite!!! Actually, I love all three of the shades that were released (but, I’m sure you know that already!), but something about the almost platinum look of this one, just calls to me. I’ll be sporting it as a pedi this Saturday at my niece’s wedding! And for the record, I think you totally rocked it out, although I believe the warmth of Peridot looks even more fabulous against your skin tone…but that’s just me! :)

    I think Graphite is a no-fail shade for everyone! But agree also that Peridot complements you perfectly. It doesn’t take away from Graphite’s blingy attention-grabbing quality, though! I really don’t regret shelling out for either of those two. Enjoy them, my dear! :D
