Graphite vs. Carbonite

I'm just going to cut to the my opinion, they do not compare. What makes Chanel Graphite so special is the sparkle and shine, Revlon Carbonite has **zero** sparkle and shine. They are the same "color", meaning in the dark they look the same but who lives in the dark?!
So, in conclusion (for me) Chanel Graphite is a must have and because it's LE a back up is needed. Stat! Revlon Carbonite is a lovely shade and the formula was great, almost a one coater.

See what I mean? I know I don't need to tell you which is which!

Small weekend haul!

This weekend I set out on a search for the new Revlon polish, Carbonite. It's said to be a good dupe for Chanel Graphite and since I was *thisclose* to buying a backup, I figured I'd give the Revlon a shot.
I first stopped at Ulta. No luck on the Revlon but I picked up: OPI Nice Stems mini's, Pixel polish in Spy Wear and Escada Taj Sunset purse size perfume.

After Ulta I headed to Walgreens. There I picked up: Wet n Wild 2 pack with Grey's Anatomy and a clear coat. I also finally got Essie Fiji and 2 Wet n Wild Palettes: Comfort Zone and Petal Pusher. They didn't have Carbonite but they still had plenty of Black With Envy (Chanel Black Pearl dupe), so if you're still looking for that check a Walgreens!
Finally I stopped at CVS and there was Carbonite! Score!

NOTD China Glaze Cracked Concrete

Cracked Concrete over OPI Manicurist of Seville and Houston We Have a Purple. I'm still very unsure of crackle polishes, they don't seem "me". That and they make me want to layer on more and more layers of top coat. I can't stand how bumpy they feel!
