Chanel Peridot Golden Rose Metallic 08

While this beauty is no dupe for the infamous Chanel Peridot, she's definitely in the same family of pure gorgeous.

Golden Rose Metallic 08

Metallic 08 has a stunning color range, shifting from a cool golden green to teal blue.

There are even a couple of shades similar to 08, including Missha HGR01 and PeriPera Metallic Green. These are both European/Asian brands, but can sometimes be found on Ebay.

The next day I decided to try layering Hard Candy Break up over one nail, a multichromatic glitter that shifts from gold to pink to blue depending on the light & color. The texture got a little weird though, kind of resembling fish scales, so I tried a glitter gradient with Sinful Colors Nail Junkie on the rest.

Although Golden Rose is a European brand (this lovely flew all the way from Poland!), we've been seeing a few metallic duochromes here, too. China Glaze is coming out with a line of six metallic duochromes this spring/summer. One looks very similar to GR 08, and another may be a dupe for Peridot. I hope these come out soon, because they all look amazing.
