If you've been reading this blog for awhile, you may remember that I referred to Chanel Peridot as "Polish of the Gods". I am not entirely sure why my pictures in that post are so small, but whatever, you get the idea. I LOVE CHANEL PERIDOT! So I was pretty pumped when OPI came out with OPI Just Spotted the Lizard in the OPI The Amazing Spider-Man collection. I wanted a back-up of Peridot, but didn't want to pay the price tag a second time. I also know that there are others dupes, but none were very accessible brands for me personally. I am doing a happy dance for this polish!
Look at all of this gorgeous green/gold duochrome!! And that shiny finish!! LOVE!
Like the Chanel version, Just Spotted the Lizard is nicely pigmented, requiring only two coats to look UNBELIEVABLE. I prefer the OPI Pro-Wide Brush to Chanel's long, thin brush, so I enjoyed using the OPI more. The formula is very similar as well, both are thin, but in a good way that makes them easy to control and apply perfectly.
So the OPI has the same formula as the Chanel, requires the same number of coats as the Chanel, has a better brush and is WAY cheaper. Now, I'm sure you want to know.... are they exact dupes?? Please, view the photos below:
Can you tell I'm wearing two different polishes? No? Me neither!! In these two pictures I am wearing: (left to right) OPI Just Spotted the Lizard, Chanel Peridot, OPI Just Spotted the Lizard, Chanel Peridot. I am very confident calling them exact dupes.
Don't own either of these? Get the OPI. You'll save cash and have the same gorgeous nails.
So, any big plans for Mother's Day? I am going to make my mom some delicious breakfast and something good for dinner. I got her some Laura Mercier Creme Brulee body cream and some other goodies, so it should be fun!!
