Jessica Iridescent Eye

All last fall, I kept hearing about Chanel Peridot. Peridot here, Peridot there, Peridot EVERYWHERE! I don’t have any Chanel nail lacquers and I don’t anticipate getting any because at $26 for .4oz, that’s just really a ridiculous price. It would take an outrageously unique color for me to even consider spending that much. I admired the swatches online but wasn’t really that tempted. Then I started to see swatches of the Jessica Peacock Queen Collection online and how similar it was to the Chanel Illusions d’Ombre Collection. I don’t like to buy nail polish online because I prefer to look at them in person before purchasing. When I found the collection at my local beauty supply store, I couldn’t resist.

Here are some swatches of Jessica Iridescent Eye:

If you have Chanel Peridot, how does this compare? The swatches online make it look like a pretty darn close dupe. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t like this color THAT much.  It’s interesting enough, but I don’t think it looks particularly flattering on me; definitely not $26 interesting. So what do you think? Is this a color you’re interested in?

  1. This is an incredible polish. I have Chanel Peridot, and while it doesn't seem to be a dead-on dupe, I think it looks reallllly similar that you don't need to own both.

    It's so awesome that you got this version – much more economical and still brilliant! 🙂 Looks wonderful on your nails!

    1. Oh you lucky girl. 😉 It's soooo hard for me to justify spending that much on a polish but sometimes it's important to splurge on yourself so I can understand other people getting it.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I loooooove your blog.

  3. I agree, it doesn't look like an exact dupe. But it is closer than a lot I've seen! This one looks to be more green than the Chanel. I am a splurger on polish and when I got Peridot my husband said it was ugly and looks like alien nails lol but I really love it :'(

      1. he likes anything orange (which I pretty much hate) and green. But the duochrome of peridot bugged him, I guess, since it leans more gold?? I don't know. He's weird lol luckily he doesn't know the price of chanel polish! Hahaha

        1. Haha! Let's hope he never finds out. Yesterday I was talking to the owners of one of the nail polish places I go to and they were asking me how big my collection is. They said I was crazy when I told them I was at around 350 bottles now. Then we started talking about high end polish and they said that anyone who pays more than $10 for nail polish is insane. I just laughed because they have no idea what this crazy nail polish world is about and they OWN a freaking beauty supply store. lol

      2. Omg that's crazy lol I'm scared to count how many I have! I know I have about 115 zoyas, if that tells you anything lol one time I started adding up the cost of the polish that was one my vanity at the time, and I got to $250 and stopped because I thought I was going to trigger a panic attack lol
