Chanel Graphite

Chanel Graphite

As promised, a review of the Chanel Graphite nailpolish! I’ve tried this one after the Peridot, and while Peridot is still my favourite, Graphite is also very nice. The colour really matches the name, it looks just like graphite. I painted two coats, and it stayed on nicely and didn’t show too much wear. Even when the colour comes off a bit at the tip of the nails, it’s fine to just paint over the tips if you’re in a hurry – there’s no visible line 🙂 It does have a wintery feel to it though, so probably I won’t be wearing it again until winter…

Yes, I couldn’t resist…..I’ve bought two (but I’m sharing with my mom 😉 ) I wasn’t sure if I’d really like the new collection, but seeing them in the store, I liked the Peridot and Graphite colours a lot – Quartz didn’t seem too special to me though.

Here’s a close-up:

Chanel Peridot and Graphite

Before I tried it out, I thought I’d like the simpler Graphite more. But, thinking Peridot would be a bit more suited to summer I tried it out first, and I think it looks super gorgeous on the nails, much prettier than I anticipated! I love the way the colour changes depending on the angle you’re looking at it – I’ve tried to capture the different shades in my picture…what do you think?

This time, I’ve kept my nails simple, without embellishment. This colour really needs nothing more to make it stand out. If you like painting your nails in extraordinary colours I’d say give it a try, but if you rather prefer simple and “normal” colours it’s probably not the right shade. I’ll try out graphite next, even though it feels much more like a “winter” colour to me……
