This is one of the most unique and beautiful nail polishes I've ever used. I'm loyal to Chanel and YSL polish, and Peridot is a go-to favorite. My boyfriend LOVES it, and I constantly receive compliments when I wear it. It has an incredible depth, and changes color with the light. It can go from gold to green. My bestie has dubbed it my "chameleon polish." There's simply nothing else that compares.

One of my all time favourite shades. Simply beautiful and unique color. Not the best if you are searching for simple gold shade but do not hesitate to give it a try, it is much more than that! Great quality as for all Chanel Polishes.

A really unique colour, it's a sort of mix between bronze and gold with a teal/green shine with a frosty, shimmer finish. It's really beautiful. It applies nicely, I like the fact that it isn't too thick in consistency like other nail polishes I have which means it won't dry up as fast. It chips fairly easily but that's probably because I don't wear a top coat with it. I hate the fact that other brands are copying this colour though, it makes it less different, *COUGH COUGH* OPI SPIDERMAN COLLECTION! Apart from that, fabulous colour!

I completely agree with the review before mine. It looked so cool in a picture in a magazine and in the bottle, but it looked strange on. The color reminds me of snakes. The color isn't shimmery, but a frosty gold green (depending on the lighting). It does not flatter my pale cool toned skin at all. It's so expensive, it gets very dull after a while, and the cap broke..
I did get a lot of complements on the color though. And it was easy to apply. But I won't buy this again. If the cap didn't break, I would have given it to a friend instead of throwing it out.

Looks prettier in the bottle than on my nails. I was expecting to see the micro glitter, but it looks more frosty/shimmery applied. The color is a warm golden green with a hint of bronze and teal. Doesn't really flatter my pale cool skintone I must admit. It does apply easily, thin, but not too sheer.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Combination, Fair, Neutral Hair: Brunette, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
This color is a little out of my comfort zone, but it is so complex that I love it. It's mostly green, with strong tones of gold and a hint of bronze and blue. You really have to see it in the light to appreciate it.
I've never had a problem with it chipping. I use Nailtiques base coat, then a coat of Gelous, 2 coats of color and my top coat is Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in the red bottle. Works for me.

I have a love/hate relationship with this colour... It really is a gorgeous glittery colour reminiscent of a peridot gemstone. Some days I love its edgy reflective sheen and other days I feel it is just a little bit too weird. That being said I am a sucker for Chanel polishes so this was yet another to add to my vast collection.

I'm not sure why there's so many comment about this polish chipping. Maybe the reviewers aren't wearing a top coat? I am hard on my nails and I mean hard... I have three children and dog and a cat so my hands are always in the water either cleaning or washing my hands clean. I'm on the computer a lot too so tip wear is the first thing I usually notice with nail polishes. Not with this one! Tip wear and chipping with the black Chanel polish but not Peridot. Amazing colour, goes on nice and smoothly and I almost didn't put on a clear top coat because it looked so beautiful the way it was - but as I said, with the wear and tear my nails go through I need a clear on top. Three days later this polish is still going strong and I'm getting compliments on it. I'll be buying another bottle.
Edit: I know I only reviewed this two days ago but I had to come back to add more as I realised I didn't really talk about the colour. Peridot is a gorgeous gold colour that changes to light olive with a touch of blue when you move your hand. I actually have a ring with a Peridot stone on it and when I wore it with this polish I was amazed at how accurate the colour of the polish is. Let me say that I've always been a 'red polish' girl - any sort of red but I never used other colours (except black and French polish), so I was worried this would be something I'd think was a fad after a few days. Wrong! Love love love it! The more I wear it the more I love it. Looks absolutely stunning with blue clothes, amazing with white (okay, all colours go with white clothes but this is something else, just gorgeous), and makes all my gold rings/bangles look amazing. Definitely buying a backup bottle of Peridot.

Chips within hours even with 2 coats and a top coat!
Chanel is well known for its exceptionally poor quality of nail polishes and this one is no exception.
There are some equally pretty dupes around which are better quality.and cost less ( Topshop Rainbow, p2 860 ready to rock, Catrice Genius in a bottle- not a 100% duper but very pretty.)
Just to let you know Chanel pays marketing agencies to pose a consumers online to write positive reviews about their products!
95% of the positive reviews for Chanel are fake.
All big companies (L'oreal, Estee Lauder, Body Shop (owned by L'oreal) Maybelline etc..) with big marketing budgets are doing it.
Just because something is written online doesn't mean it is true.
I work in a big marketing department for the biggest French yogurt manufacturer and we pay marketing agencies to pose as consumers online and write great reviews about our products.
- every big brand company does it!
We also use a online listening software called Radian6 (there are lots of other softwares which do the same thing- just google Radian6) which alert us to anything that is said about our brands online, so we can interject and manipulate the conversations in the favour of our brands (This is common marketing practice).
We also ensure that anything that is said not in favour and get some of those reviews deleted.
Somebody from Chanel will probably flag my review and have it removed ;-)

I bought it, wore it, swapped it. Later on I had swap remorse and bought it again. Unfortunately I applied it recently and still didn't like it. I took it off before I did a top coat. I should have listened to my first instinct that this is a shade I can't wear. Usually I have no quibble with the quality of Chanel's polishes. Peridot is the exception. Foil-like in appearance, it shows every flaw on the nailbed. If you want to wear Peridot be very sure your nails are perfectly smooth and avoid too many brushstrokes because it streaks. Although in sunlight there are many lovely shimmers dancing on its surface, Peridot is a sickly shade of yellow green against my skin.

I find that all Chanel polishes have a nice formula, not too thick (looking at you, YSL), not too dull (Essie), and lovely, trendsetting colours. This polish is much the same. I like how it looks quite green in the bottle, but is more obviously golden and shimmery on your nails. Make sure you put on even coats because the shimmer will enhance any flaws you've made. I've docked a lippy for the price only. This polish colour changes in the light. Lovely.

amazing colour. just one of the most unique colours i own. i have so many polishes in my collections but this is one of the stand outs. the wear i get is just above average and i'm opaque in about a single coat of this but i do two for good measure. i've gone out wearing this on numerous occasions and people have actually asked me what im wearing on my nails?! that has never happened to me with any polish i've worn apart from this. its such an eyecatching colour and im so glad chanel have made it a permanent.

I have gotten so much compliments on this, it's unbelievable - and more surprisingly from your everyday I-didn't-notice-your-new-haircut kind of guys.. yes, GUYS.
They would actually out of the blue hold up my hand and reflect it in the light in amazement at the colour and the way it metaphors between an antique gold hue to a glimmering deep sea green.
If you're waiting for a certain someone to hold your hands, perhaps this is a good trick to speed up the process ;)

I wanted this NP badly upon its initial release.... but it does NOT work on my N20 skin color, especially since my hands have a tendency of looking red from time to time. In the bottle, it resembles a peacock - vivid blues and deep green. On my nail, it applies as a brash yellow-green color. Despite two coats, I couldn't get this to work on me - back it went.

Peridot is a very unusual colour. In the bottle it looks gold with greenish-blue tinges. On the nail the colour isn't too different but its a lot more dynamic. In direct light it's a lovely deep gold. In softer light it's gold with greenish-blue edges. In darker light it varies between green-gold and teal. And in bright sunlight the golden sparkles this gives off are incredible!
It applies very smoothly and takes two coats to get it opaque and eliminate streaks. It would be helpful if Chanel made a wider brush but in this case the smoothness of the formula makes it quite easy to handle.
In terms of lasting power, I haven't seen any chips but I've only worn it for two days. That said, my hands get a lot of abuse and most nail polishes barely last a day before i start to get tip wear so it's doing well so far!
I probably won't buy this again because whilst the deep-gold and the teal colours are beautiful, the gold-green (that is the predominant colour in normal indoor light) doesnt really suit my skin tone. Still, it's a very unusual and lovely colour

Unusual and gorgeous color, however, I didn't love it with my skin tone.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Brown
Gorgeous, beautiful colour.
But NOT on my nails.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Other Hair: Other Eyes: Other
Looks far better in the bottle than on my nails. Application is streaky, but needs at least two coats to get rid of the streakiness. It didn't work for me. I don't think it's a classy color at all- at least on me. On my nails Peridot was just a cheap,cheesy gold with green flash. If you like the color of Japanese beetles, go for it.

One of my really good friends actually got this for my Bday!!! It is such a gorgeous and unique color. On my hands, it shows up gold with green in it, depends in what lighting you're in. Super pretty. I applied base coat, one coat of this polish (it is sooo pigmented and opaque) and top coat. Love love love. Such a pretty holiday color!

OMG! I love this nail polish. I went in to Nordstroms to purchase Graphite and seen this color on the lady working at the counter, so I had to swatches this color. OMG when I swatched it my heart dropped and then when I walked outside and the sun was shining on this color I died and gone to heaven. There is no words for how BEAUTIFUL this color is. You must try this color and see it the sun light, Sick!!!
