Comparison of Models own - Golden green and Chanel - Peridot

After first swatching Golden Green I though it would be kinda similar to Peridot, but I'm very happy to say that I was wrong.
Peridot has undertones in kobber and orange, and Golden Green is all green and yellow. Golden Green is a lot more duochrome, but it doesn't quite have the same magic as Peridot has.

Another thing is that I had problems with Peridot reacting with top coats and shrinking( all top coats, not just Seche Vite) Golden Green on the other hand, I had no problems with. They both try a little metallic, but Peridot is more frosty in the finish.

I can't decide which one I like the most, they are both pretty in their own way!

When I was wearing Peridot to my aunts house she saw my nails and instantly ran to the kitchen to get a box of spice. The background color looks a lot like peridot! I realize now that it looks even more like Goldengreen though, fun! This is a Norwegian spice called Gastromat. 

Do you agree that it's similar?

 #Do you like Golden Green or Peridot more?

I don't think there will be any more posts before I come home from San Fransisco... But I hope you all are doing good and had a great Christmas!


  1. I really like the green the tones are so pretty!

  2. I love them both, and yet have neither. Sad.

  3. Great colors. How neat that your aunt found that spice. Definately similar!


I'm grateful and happy for each of your comments! And I read and usually answer them all.
