Chanel Graphite Swatch

  By Laura. Posted June 21, 2011 at 9:43 pm.

One of the 3 polishes for Chanel Fall 2011, Graphite ($25/.4oz) is a deep shimmery pewter shimmer with a bit of gold shimmer added in as well.  It’s pretty opaque in 2 coats, which is what is shown in the swatches.

Inside with Flash

Direct Sunlight (pay no attention to the cat hair on my ring finger lol)

Overcast Natural Light

Beautiful! You can really see in the last one the tinge of green it has in some lights.  Unfortunately, Graphite along with Peridot (which is the true stunner of the collection IMO, swatches soon to come) are limited edition.  I believe that the third polish, Quartz, is permanent.  Why do they make the ugliest one permanent??

    Another great Chanel polish. I agree about how they decide to make the best polishes LE, but Quartz is actually not as bad as it looks in the bottle. I have seen some good swatches of that color.

    @Rosalinda Oh good I’ll check Quartz out! I didn’t get it off the bat since I heard it was perm and it just didn’t have that special oomph that Peridot and Graphite have haha

    That’s the what I am doing, too. I don’t have the money to buy all three at once, so I’m only buying the two LE ones. ^_^
