Chanel: Peridot v OPI: Just Spotted The Lizard

(pardon the spelling of Peridot as Paridot... damn, hate when that happens.)
Today's post is really straight forward: a comparison between OPI Just Spotted The Lizard and Chanel Peridot. On my index and middle fingers that is Chanel, on the ring and little that's OPI. So you can see they're super duper similar. Both are two coats with OPI having a little more visible nail line (a thicker coat would cure this or another thin coat). The main difference I noticed was taking the swatch off, the Chanel was harder to get off (in a good way) than the OPI. I did not do top coats for the pictures and it doesn't take me long to polish, snap shots then remove the polish so it was barely dry. The Chanel formula is just more thick and hearty than the OPI. Is it worth the high price tag in my opinion... no. Get the OPI. It's easier to find because you can enter my giveaway to win it :)


  1. Thanks for the comparison! I've already picked up the OPI.

  2. Wonderful comparison!! I LOVE the OPI one!! :D

  3. Ooh - glad you caught the typo you first had on Peridot - I saw it in my email notice but see it fixed here now. When Peridot came out, I was iffy on how much gold was showing on all the shots I saw of it - it just looked like an over kill of gold to me for the pay off in the green. Thus I was not major ready to pay the price for it. I got the other 2 from that collection. Now I am really glad I waited as there have been a # of good dupes out there which I was sure would happen. This one by OPI is probably the best dupe it seems. I also love, love comparison posts - more please!
