Another attempt at Revlon to dupe a Chanel polish, this time it’s Chanel Graphite. I don’t have Graphite to compare but from the pictures that I’ve seen, it appears to have more apparent sparkles and the different colors gives it a textured look making it look like real graphite. Definitely a gorgeous shade. Revlon Carbonite may not be an exact dupe but for $4.79 compared to $25 for a bottle of Chanel polish, it’s close enough for me.
Orly Bonder Base Coat
2 coats of Revlon Carbonite
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
Revlon Carbonite is a dark pewter with silver and gold micro-fine sparkles that gives it a textured look. It looks as if it would be grainy to the touch if you rubbed your fingers across it. Carbonite applies smooth and opaque in one coat if applied carefully. It also dries quick and wears well. This is my fourth day with this manicure and there is no chipping and only minor tip wear. Impressed by Revlon again.
