Chanel Graphite is in my hot little hands, yes it is!

Yes, you read the title right. And no, you have not time-travelled back to Fall 2011. It is currently April 2012, and yes, I just got Chanel Graphite nail polish from their fall 2011 collection. I almost bought this polish when it came out. Almost. But the price freaked me out, and I decided against getting it... I finally convinced myself that I needed it, but by the time I had, it was long sold out.

This was "the one that got away". I hunted high and low for any possible dupes (nope), lurked every Chanel counter I came across in case they had a lonely Graphite straggler at the bottom of a drawer... but no. I had missed it.

But then.... When I was in NYC over Easter, I popped by the Chanel counter at Century 21 and OMFGOMFGOMFG they had not only one, but THREE of them! Glory Hallelujah! No, I didn't buy all three (so my dear NYC readers, run fast to Cortlandt Street!) but I did a happy dance and giddily purchased this baby. I think I paid $28 and I don't even care. It was 100% worth it.

Details: $28(ish) for 0.4 fl. oz, Chanel Graphite (529) is described as a "metallic silver". I see so much more in it though: silver, gold, pewter, green, brown... And the glitter is so small and smooth and looks like it's glowing in the sunlight. Absolutely stunning.
