Sephora by OPI S-Age is Just a Number

I hope everyone had a great weekend :) I have another polish from Sephora by OPI's Tinsel Town Collector's Set (reviewed here) to share with you today! S-Age is Just a Number* was one of the polishes that initially caught my attention in this set.

S-Age is Just a Number can be thought of as a dupe for Chanel Peridot. I don't own Peridot, but they do look quite similar. I know there are a ton of supposed dupes out there, but this one might be a bit easier on the wallet compared to Chanel.


S-Age is Just a Number is a green, gold, and blue multichrome polish. Depending on the lighting, you can see any variety of these three shades! This makes a really interesting polish, as the colours are constantly changing. This polish did have a nice formula, I used three coats for full opacity, but I was left with some brush stroke marks due to the metallic finish. 


This polish is nice, but it just doesn't excite me. I wish that the blues and greens in this polish were a bit more prominent, because it can look quite dull on the nails at times. If you're looking for a similar polish, I highly recommend OPI's Just Spotted the Lizard from the Spiderman Collection, I like it a lot better :)


The one thing that I really don't like about OPI and Sephora by OPI's mini polishes is the lack of labels. Once you get rid of the packaging, it's hard to remember what each shade is called. I wish that OPI would start adding mini labels to their minis! 

What are your thoughts on all of the Chanel Peridot dupes on the market? Do you own the original?

  4. On the bottom of each mini bottle is a code number (Just Spotted the Lizard's is NLM36). Googling that number will let you find the name of the color. I keep an index card for my mini polishes; each line has a drop of the polish, and I write the name of the color and the code after that. I keep the card in the bag with the bottles.

    1. Great tip! :) I did know about the code on each bottle, but I still wish that the actual name was written as well!
