Chanel Fall 2011 Polishes-Graphite and Peridot

I made a trip to uptown today and spotted the Chanel Fall 2011 collections at the 57th street Chanel boutique and Bergdorfs. *update* This collection is now also available at the Soho boutique. The most exciting item for me were the polishes :) There were 3 shades released-Graphite (Shimmery silvery grey with a gold overtone), Peridot (Duochrome green/bronze) and Quartz (Taupe with silver sheen) which was the only one I passed on.

Swatches are with 2 coats, no top coat.
Index, Middle: Graphite; Ring, Pinkie: Peridot

Graphite Close-Up
Love how sparkly this color is

Peridot Close-Up
Depending on the angle, it can look more olive green or bronze-y

I like how you can see the color shift at the edges of the nail.


These polishes applied really well, so far the best out of the other Chanel polishes I can recall at the moment. I think both are great colors and although they are meant for fall, I can't wait to wear them now. From the fall collection, I also picked up the Rose Ecrin blush and Giggle glossimer. Also released were the Illusion d'Ombre shadows~very pretty mousse shadows. I picked up Khaki, Fantasme and Emerveille. Is it too early for Fall collections?

Thank you for sharing! I was wondering if Graphite is a smooth or gritty finish? It looks so shimmery but gritty too. That is one of the biggest concerns that is preventing me from thinking about buying it.

@Shelia ~ Graphite has a pretty smooth texture. I would say it's more like a metallic polish texture-there's a bit of grit but nothing like a glitter polish. Hope that helps!

Fall 2011 polishes are already out? Thank you for sharing this! :) I like Graphite best! But Peridot comes in a close second!

Thank you so much for sharing! I can't believe it is being released already... in June! The mousse eyeshadow sounds interesting, and I can't wait for the matte/velvet lipsticks whenever they are coming out.

Thank you for sharing! The nail polishes look great, and I'm glad to hear the formula is better than previous Chanel polishes. The mousse shadows sound interesting too, I can't wait until they're released here in the UK :)

I can't believe that the fall collection is out already, is it out throughout the US?

Gorgeous polishes, these two are definitely on my list! :)
Thank you for the swatches xxx

Jenn said...

@Vanity-Fashinista I don't know how wide the release is. I remember Bergdorfs received the Fall collection pretty early last year as well, so I think it may be another week or 2 for other counters?

Those are the two polishes I ordered. Your pictures make me feel better about Peridot. I saw it on another blog and was upset that I took a chance on buying it. I'm not so upset now. Thanks

Love your swatches! Thank you. I just placed my order for both!
