My own bottle of beauty - Chanel Peridot

Although I missed out on last years hottest color, Jade, by Chanel, I am in recent possession of Peridot. Peridot, technically an olive green gemstone, is also one of Chanels soon to be obsessed over fall nail colors. In the bottle, #531, limited edition Perdiot looks like petrol in the hot sun; it has primary base of green overlayed by gradient blues and speckled with gold and orange. The only thing equally as beautiful can be found in nature - the back of a beetle or the eye of a fly. On the nail, the color is like a chameleon and changes to its surroundings. At work, it reflects the taupe walls and plays it gold. At home and at night, its hue is olive green to almost graphite blue.  The photo on the left does not do it justice - please go see for your self and at least visually treat yourself to this gorgeous hue. To the chemists and colorists of Chanel, I praise you.
