This is my first Chanel product ever! *Squeals can be heard all the way up to the highest mountain tops*
I never thought I’d be lucky enough to own anything from that luxury brand, but now I’m so excited to say that Chanel Peridot has made its way into my heart and my Helmer.
It was a little rough introducing Peridot to the rest of my polish children.
My usually well-behaved China Glazes and OPIs were a little snotty and said, “Chanel isn’t everything!” and “More expensive doesn’t necessarily mean better!” Some others made cheap shots about the French.
The Nubars tried to stay out of the confrontation, but I could tell from their fond glances at Peridot that they were both impressed yet intimidated by its multichromatic brilliance.
Clarins 230 was nice enough to befriend Chanel Peridot right from the get-go.
“I know it’s not easy being the new one.” It tried to comfort Peridot, who had begun crying. “Listen, when I first arrived, the same thing happened to me. In fact, people often call me Unicorn Pee! Sticks and stones may break my bottle cap, but names will never hurt me. At least you’re named after a beautiful gemstone. I’m quite fond of Peridot.”
From that moment, the two have been inseparable.
Yes, sometimes poor Peridot still gets picked on even by the mini OPIs (who are still young and need to be taught lessons of politeness and common courtesy). But in general, I think that Peridot is making great progress in letting mean-spirited remarks roll off its bottle.
(Warning: This post contains tons of photos of this polish. I tried to capture its personality the best I could.)
