♥ Chanel Peridot Dupe!

I've seen this polish a couple of times in Sainsburys but I haven't bought it until now. The brand is called "Eye Candy London" and they call this range "Colour FLIP".

The plain polishes are £5 which I though was okey, however after I paid I saw that this one was £8, which is a bit over priced for a polish from Sainsburys.


So this is what it looks like, the different colour effect is not too good and you could hardly see the green tones, especially in bright sun light.


The day I wore this I actually went to Westfield Shopping Center and when I walked past a Chanel counter I decided to put a coat of Chanel Peridot on one of my hands. (it was a tester don't worry)

When I compared the two they looked super similar except that my polish has more golden/bronze tones to it.


After all, the polish does look gorgeous even though the colour effect isn't very noticable :(


I know some people want my reviews to be more thorough, I am aware of this but the reason my reviews aren't really thorough is because I feel that at the end of the day, everyone's opinion will be different anyways. And with polish, picture can say quite a lot.

Anyway here's a mini review:

Formula: The formula is covering, but a tiny bit streaky.

Price: £8 is in my opinion too much for a brand sold at Sainsburys (food store)

Availability: I don't know if they are sold anywhere else, but I can only take into account what I know so I'd say it's not widely available.

Result: If you look at the first pic, you can see three colours in the polish bottle. I don't think this shows in the result, so it's a bit misleading. It does give a super nice golden/bronze colour though.

Have you tried this or any other Chanel Peridot dupe (or the Chanel one)

Send me links, and I'll check it out!!

  3. Didn't know this brand but love the color especially on tan/dark skin.
    Makes me think of the color Gold Coin by Revlon.
