NOTD: Catrice Ulitmate Nail Laquer 840 Genius In The Bottle, a cheaper alternative for Chanel’s Peridot

Yesterday I posted my German and Dutch drugstore haul and today I’m wearing one of my new nail polishes. This nail polish already looked to familiar to me and when I came home I decided to google it. I found out it was a cheaper alternative for Chanel’s Peridot. I don’t own Chanel Peridot, although I have seen comparison pictures and from what I’ve seen I can tell they look very similar. Genius In The Bottle is a beautiful old gold with green duochrome, which means it looks different depending on how light catches it. The formula was a bit on the thin side, I needed 3 coats to make it look opaque, on the other hand it doesn’t look streaky like some metallic nail polishes.

Do you own Chanel’s Peridot or a cheaper alternative?
