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?

Look Carefully Before You Purchase

I learned a lesson today: don’t get so excited when you see nail polish you want that you neglect to look at the bottles closely. I was excited to check out the new OPI New York Ballet Collection in person but when I saw the Jessica display next to it, I squealed. I grabbed the three Jessica polishes that are the dupes of Chanel’s Fall 2011 line and picked up two OPI bottles. Well, when I got home I realized that I took two bottles of the same polish from the Jessica display so I’m missing one of the trio. Thankfully, my nail polish place told me I could exchange it so I’m heading over there tomorrow. So yeah, I’m retarded.


So this is what I got today:

OPI: Pirouette My Whistle and My Pointe Exactly

Jessica: Smoky Feather and Iridescent Eye


I’ll swatch these sometime soon. Aren’t they pretty?!
