NOTD..Chanel Peridot

During my trip to Harrods, i happily walked through the rows of makeup counters, and headed straight to the Chanel counter..i have been loving all the duo chrome polishes around at the moment, and Chanel Peridot has been on my wishlist for ages, as a spur of the moment thing i decided to purchase this beauty, receiving the last one in stock, kerchhhing haha
 i really dont think my photos do this polish justice, it is such a hard colour to capture, in the bottle it looks a goldy green colour with hints of a darker green and blue!!
 once applied to the nails only the goldy green colours show up, which left me slightly dissapointed, however once dried the duochrome comes into action and in different lights you can see the hints of blue, its absolutely gorgeous..Models Own are releasing their beetlejuice collection at the start of November and one of the colours  looks very similar to Peridot so i shall definitely be purchasing it to compare it to this high end version!!
Peridot in different light
Quality- iv'e never tried a Chanel Polish until now, but the actual polish seems quite watered down so two coats is definitely needed to have the affect shown above, however it leaves the nails with a really lovely finish
Longetivity- ive only had this on for about two days, but with no top coat there as still no chips, so it seems to be long lasting
Price- the price is the only downside to this beauty coming in at £17 which is pretty steep, so i shall definitely be looking for dupes before i even think of repurchasing this again
Packaging- like all Chanel items the packaging is absolutely gorgeous (most things with the Chanel logo emblazoned on it is a hit with me!!)

So what do you guys think?? have any of you tried it?? also any dupes out their other than the modelsown beetlejuice collection??
