Behind…Isn’t That the Story of my Life?

Okie dokie. I’m sure any nail connoisseur is familiar with the Chanel nail polish called Peridot that has caused such a rage. Now, the polish was released in the fall of 2011, however I only recently happened upon it when I was looking into information on my birthstone, the Peridot. It didn’t take me long to find that there were bottles of different brands that have put out a possible dupe, which was kind of comforting to see. If a six dollar bottle of polish makes me cringe, a twenty-five dollar bottle of nail polish would have sent me into seizures! Still, it took me two weeks do do it, but I found my dupe!
Now why would I care in the first place? I mean, I like a shiny polish here and there but I’m not about to go find the cheapest versions of the most popular designer brands I can find. No, I don’t really care for the latest trends. Me and them just happen to coincide sometimes. Like now.
What got me about this polish was that it was a bichrome shade that gave off hints of green or gold depending on where the light hits it. It helps that the Chanel brand was called Peridot. I’m going to be on the lookout for the other bichromes, maybe pick up a bottle or two at some point.
Okay, so my dupe is from the Sally Hansen’s Lustre Shine line called Plume 005. Now, the shine is all dependent on lighting, but in nice clean sunlight you can see the bichrome just fine! My camera at night in my house with the flash is not an ideal comparison picture, so I had to wait till the lighting was good and also catch my nails at their best. So, here it is!
I don’t do nail polish dupe reviews, and this certainly isn’t the start, but I had to share this particular one.
