Nail of the Day: OPI Just Spotted The Lizard

I'm extremely excited about today's NOTD, not only because the color is amazing, but because it is an exact dupe of a popular shade three times its price. Today's featured polish is a new release from the OPI Spiderman collection, called Just Spotted The Lizard.  This is a gorgeous duochrome metallic gold/green that looks downright fabulous on the nails.  I purchased this in the mini four polish set that released with this collection, which is why the bottle is so tiny! :)

I've included two photos in this post, one taken outside in the shade, and one taken inside by a window (still natural light).  It gives you an idea of how chameleon this color can be, depending on where you are.  The formulation on this was great, one of OPI's best.  I had absolutely no issues with it and two coats was plenty.

Now, you may be thinking this looks a lot like Chanel's oh-so-popular Peridot polish.  Guess what?  This is an EXACT dupe.  No really, my head nearly exploded when I saw the two swatched side by side.  No difference whatsoever.  Google it.  Your mind will be blown.  Chanel Peridot is a color I've eyed for a while, but never justified the hefty price tag for it.  Now that I (literally) have the exact same thing in Just Spotted The Lizard, I'm a very happy camper.

My final thoughts: check this out.  Seriously, these pictures don't even do it justice.  Even as I am typing this post, my eyes keep getting distracted by how awesome my nails look with this on.  Definitely a new favorite!!  I'm happy to know that even after this collection discontinues, I can still get my hands on this exact shade through Chanel.

Stay tuned for swatches of more polishes from this release!

Did you get anything from the OPI Spiderman collection?

  2. I completely agree! I purchased this shortly after it released, and I AM IN LOVE! It is absolutely gorgeous. I have actually had my nails looking green, yellow, blue and even hints of red. It's amazing that a nail color can do that! Enjoy!
