Chanel Peridot was so amazing, I had to go ahead and purchase her cousins, Quartz and Graphite.
Chanel Quartz Le Vernis Nail Colour doesn't look like much in the bottle. But ON.. well that is a whole other story!
I did a couple different shots of this.. some show the base color better, some show the AWESOME micro-shimmer better. The very last shot is in natural light with no flash. You can click to enlarge.
What makes Quartz so unique is the micro-shimmers. The base color is just a tan, glowy type of shade. Blah on it's own. It NEEDS those shimmers. When you angle your hands in the sun it will take your breath away.
The application was even, 3 coats, however a bit streaky.
I think Chanel does polishes well, particularly FALL polishes. Chanel Quartz Le Vernis Nail Colour is new for the Fall 2011 Collection and retails for $25. It is available now at Chanel.com as well as online at department store websites. It will be a permanent part of the line.
