Currently Coveting: Jessica Cosmetics Iridescent Eye (from the Peacock Collection) Nail Color

Currently Coveting is a not-daily feature on products that look interesting, whether new releases, cult classics, or something in between!

Chanel Peridot is a wildly popular nail polish, and with good reason. It's a green-gold-blue metallic duochrome, and it's Chanel. As beautiful as the color is, I cannot justify $26 for a 0.40 oz. Luckily, Jessica Cosmetics has duped Peridot (as well as Quartz and Graphite, the other polishes from Chanel's Illusion d'Ombres collection) perfectly with Iridescent Eye, for a mere $7.50. The PolishAholic recently posted a lovely comparison of Peridot and Iridescent Eye, and Goose's Glitter has swatches and comparisons for the whole Peacock Collection (if you don't follow their blogs, why not?!?!). If you've been lemming the Chanels, Jessica's versions are an excellent, affordable alternative. Shipping is $7.50, which is steep if you just want Iridescent Eye, but pretty awesome if you want the whole collection, since altogether they're only $4 more than one of the Chanel polishes. Methinks I'll add it to my "feeling sad and needing a pick-up/celebratory purchase" shopping list: items I want but can't quite justify without emotional turmoil (in the sense of deviance from the norm).
$7.50 for 0.50 oz, available from Jessica Cosmetics

What do you think of Iridescent Eye? Would you buy this or the Chanel, or do you even like the color at all?
