Leave it to Chanel to create another “it” color for the upcoming fall season. While the buzz may be about the green-gold duochrome Peridot released with the brand’s 2011 Fall collection, Illusions D’ Ombres, Chanel Graphite has captivated my attention. I can honestly say that I’ve never come across a nail polish with such dimension. It’s a beautiful blend of mixed metals, sometimes gunmetal and other times pewter and gold, with pops of multi-dimensional glitter. What other brand can accomplish all of that and still keep it classy? Of course, Chanel.
While I am quite content wearing Graphite during probably the steamiest week of the summer, I cannot wait to wear it come fall when I’m sporting sweaters and boots! While $25 is a spendy amount for nail color, we think this one’s worth the splurge. I received my bottle as a birthday gift…from my husband. He generally has a hard time understanding the ins and outs of beauty, so imagine my surprise!
