From the first time I saw Chanel Graphite I was seriously lemming that shade. But the price of Chanel polishes is pretty high, so I was hesitating. Should I or should I not. Then all of the sudden I saw this perfect dupe for Graphite – Jessica Smoky Feather. And judging from the comparisons, Jessica is little bit more shimmery … and that makes it even prettier in my eyes. Not to mention that it’s half the price of Chanel nail polish. I started to look all over for this polish and I even contacted our distributor to see if it would be available in Slovenia. I almost stared to hyperventilate when they said that Jessica Peacock Queen LE is already in the stores. And Jessica didn’t come out with the Graphite dupe only … they duped the whole Chanel 2011 fall nail polish collection.
I got together with Maestra for lunch and started to rave about this polish and how we really have to go look for it, that I must have it … You know what she told me? “Oh great, so you’re still hung up on this shade. Good thing as I intended to buy you Smoky Feather as a gift.” One of the best presents ever! Thank you, Maestra!
I was little bit afraid that this shade will let me down, but it is as gorgeous on nails as it is in the bottle.
Application was fine, brush also, the only problem was little bit slower drying time. I guess Jessica does not like my INM top coat.
I wore this shade for almost a week, and I plan to wear it again really soon.
I even dedicated short YT video to it.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdV1tVuJFQE[/youtube]
