Chanel Graphite

Here’s another one of Chanel’s fall polishes, Chanel Graphite. This might look like a simple silver foil, but it’s more than that. The silver is more of a tarnished silver, and there are some gold and even some blue sparkles as well. Even though I think it’s very pretty and I like it a lot, I’m not as blown away by this as Péridot. It’s a nice polish, but not super unique.

The formula is ok, just a little runny. It covers ok in 2 coats, but I still did 3 coats to make it totally opaque.

Here’s a comparison between Graphite, GOSH Silver and Milani Silver Dazzle. As you can see, Graphite is darker and has a more complex finish than Silver, while Silver Dazzle is darker than Graphite still.

Did you fall for Chanel Graphite, or do you think it’s too ordinary?

  1. I felt for it, absolutely, but I think you could recreate it layering a dark silver foil and a gold flakes effect! ;D

  2. Det ser jättefint ut, men kanske inte värt det höga priset.

  3. I took it in my hands today. The saleswoman told me: “You know, this is the last piece we have!”. I was unsure… And then I think that it costs 24€. 24€=48.000£ (as you probably know, the lira was the old italian currency before euro). You know, 48.000£ sounds much bigger than 24€. :D
    So I didn’t buy it. :D But that doesn’t mean that it isn’t an exception shade!
    I love it, and your second picture in particular is really stunning!

  4. Har hört att många föredrar Peridot :) Det verkar vara ett helt underbart lack…
    Jag gillar detta också, men ifall jag fick chansen att välja skulle det nog bli Peridot :)

  5. Vad lustigt, jag prataade precis med Emma (min medbloggerska alltså) som står på NK och håller i flaskorna och hon sa att de såg rätt trista ut, utom Peridot, och så kände jag med. Så nej, jag behöver inget mer ur kollektionen. Peridot är ett måste men de båda andra kan vara.

  6. utrolig fin lakk! elsker grålige lakker, men den var ikke like spennende som peridot :)

  7. Denne er riktig fin, men jeg tror jeg blir å stå over. Har sett sammeligninger mellom Graphite og Lucerne-tainly look marvelous fra Opi, og de er søskenbarn. Hadde vært gøy å sett Graphite vs Jitterbug fra China Glaze da Jitterbug er hakket lysere enn Lucerne.
