OPI Just Spotted the Lizard

Woohoo, it's the weekend, lovely readers! And I have the most awesome polish to show you today. :-)

Just Spotted The Lizard is from OPI's recent The Amazing Spider-man Collection. It is a gold and green duochrome metallic.







Once on the nails, you will see mostly a coppery gold with some green around the edges when looking at the nails straight on. Shifting the hand and the angle of viewing will show more of the dark green and teal duochrome. How much duochrome you see on your nails will depend on the curvature of your nail bed; the more curvature to your nail bed, the stronger the duochrome. One thing to note is that the duochrome you see on your nails will not be nearly as strong as what you see in the OPI bottle. The OPI bottle is round, with a greater curvature than most people's nail beds, so the duochrome you see in the bottle is exaggerated.

This color has been widely anticipated as a dupe of Chanel's famous Peridot, and that is one of the reasons I was super excited for this. At $25, Chanel Peridot was just out of my reach, whereas OPI is much more reasonably priced at $8.50. I feel this color can be somewhat difficult to wear. The gold is a bit washed out, and the green duochrome adds an almost moldy green look to the gold at certain angles. Yet, this color is undeniably interesting and memorable. For that alone, I would recommend this polish, especially if you were lusting after Peridot, but could not afford its high price tag.

You can find Just Spotted The Lizard at a variety of nail salons, spas, and beauty stores for $8.50 for 0.5oz.

  8. I can see how this might not be the easiest colour to wear, but it is definitely intriguing. Not sure if I'm going to pick it up - I'm more in the glitters ;)
