Just Spotted the Lizard

The much anticipated duochrome from OPI's The Amazing Spider-Man Collection! This polish is said to a dupe for Chanel's Peridot, which I do not own. Unfortunately, I cannot provide a comparison of these two polishes, but I'm sure many other bloggers will have done this :)

Just Spotted the Lizard has a great formula, I used two coats and this gave me perfect coverage. So far I've been really impressed with the formulas from this collection! I don't normally go for colours like this, but it is insanely gorgeous in the bottle so I was really excited to see if this colour translated to the nail. Just Spotted the Lizard is a duochrome polish, so depending on which way the light is hitting your nails, the polish will look slightly different. In some lights your nails will look more gold, and in other lights they'll look more green with slight blue undertones. I'm really happy with this polish! I don't have any streak marks, which is great considering the consistency of this polish!

Overall, I'm really happy with this polish! I like that OPI released a shade like this, so if it is similar to Chanel's Peridot it will be a more affordable option. What do you think of Just Spotted the Lizard? Do you own Chanel's Peridot? 

Disclosure: This polish was sent to me for my honest review.

  1. I love the duochrome! I find peridot really overpriced so I haven't picked it up even though I like the color. This seems like a better option! Thanks for swatching it!

  2. I have both and I have to say, this is NOT a Peridot dupe. Peridot has much more flash and is more yellow based. This is however a pretty close dupe to the new Deborah Lippmann Swagga Like Us! I will have a full versus post next week of the 3!
